“Friendly and convenient guest house near the sea front”
Reviewed May 13, 2010

We enjoyed our stay. Owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Pack lunch was excellent and good value. Free internet worked well. Spring weather was a bit chilly and the owner put the central heating on when we arrived and when required during our stay. One morning, the hot water began to run out mid shower but I would not let this deter from staying again.

Location is good for touring Torbay and only a short walk into the town centre.

A good old fashioned seaside guest house, that does what it says on the tin. Very friendly proprietors that made us feel very welcome and were excellent with our 1 year old daughter, which does make a lot of difference. With the little one, we appreciated the security of a locked front door, and a comfortable guest lounge just inside it, so we could see anyone coming or going.
The breakfast was exceptionally good for such a small establishment, with a good choice of fruits and cereals, as well as numerous cooked options. The proprietors make an effort to serve locally sourced or fair trade produce where possible, and have a Green Tourism silver award.
Add to that a 2 or 3 minute walk to the beach, and you have a great place for a family seaside holiday.

We stayed here in April to visit nearby Greenway House for two nights. Peter and Miranda made us feel very welcome and had lots of useful leaflets and advice about the local area.

The rooms were clean, well presented, (I liked the chocolates in the rooms), and I believe most if not all have an en-suite bathroom. The only issue we had with the room was hot water but this was very swiftly sorted out.

Breakfast was very good with a choice of cereal and cooked breakfast and as much tea/coffee and toast as you can manage. Advice was also on hand for restaurants for the evening, The Boathouse is a must, we ate there twice!!!

I was also impressed when I mentioned I was a big Agatha Christie fan that information was on hand about events later on in the year to encourage me to come back, and I will.

We had a great stay there and would definitely recommend it.

Thanks Peter and Miranda for a wonderful stay. This is a treasure of a place to stay for any length of time. The room was big, clean and very comfortable. We went with our two teenage daughters who enjoyed their time at the hotel.
The breakfasts are huge and set you up for the day. Miranda also provided us with pack lunches when we went out for the day, these were also healthy and wholesome.
Peter and Miranda are both lovely hoteliers, Peter's singing in the morning really brighten the start of the day!
I would recommend this hotel to couples, families with young or older children and single persons you can't go wrong booking here for your break.

Peter and Miranda are great hosts, they are friendly, informative and very welcoming. The B&B was very clean, the breakfast was great (wonderful bacon!), and our room was very comfortable. We were travelling with our two children (2 and 1 year old) and there was a highchair every morning at breakfast and a cot waiting in our room. The B&B is very family friendly. There is loads of info provided on things to see and do in Paignton and the surrounding area, the info pack in our room was tailored specifically for our needs. I would highly recommend the Culverden Hotel to anyone heading to the Paignton area.

Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday.

  • Liked — it was set back from the main road, so we didn't have any road noise.

As the owners of a small dog we had to find a place that would accept us bringing ours along. Peter and Miranda, the owners welcomed 'Tammy' and even had a biscuit treat waiting in the room for her.
The hotel was spotless and the atmosphere so welcoming we felt as if we had been there before. The hotel is well within a few minutes walk from the lovely sandy beach and just around ten minutes walk from Paignton Town centre which offers a splended choice of shops along with great eating places, many of which offer 'Two meals for the price of one' at certain times of the day.
Our room was very comfortable, warm with en-suite , TV and tea making facilities. The wonderful huge breakfast set us up for the day.
We will certainly be visiting Paignton again and would love to stay with Peter and Miranda once more.
