“Our stay at the above hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

We had a very good welcome . Shown around the hotel and taken to the room .The breakfasts were very good and asked how we like them .And the evening meal was very good (the best steak we have had for a long time) The room was very clean and tidy and the en-suite was very good.

We were visiting relatives nearby, stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice room with balcony. Breakfast was excellent each day, and we enjoyed one evening meal. Very friendly and interesting owners, who obviously take great pride in their hotel. We would certainly return when next in Paignton.

I stayed for work, for 1 night, and was disappointed with my experience. I had a warm welcome, but from then on was made to feel like an inconvenience. I hadn't booked and ordered my dinner at breakfast, so may not be able to have dinner (I had just checked in) The food was very old fashioned, large portions on 70's china. The whole house is geared to an older clientèle, with a very soft bed, and a tired bathroom. It was clean, and tidy with free WiFi, but not enough to make me want to stay again. At breakfast, I was seated in a side room, I had to order everything with the staff, and without a menu, and it all felt very old fashioned, and with a very B&B attitude. Would recommend to my grandparents, but definitely not if you want a swift business hotel, where you are in and out, without much hassle.

A very clean and comfortable hotel. We got a warm welcome and an excellent cooked breakfast. The bathroom was great with an excellent shower. I visit Paignton often and will not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here accompanied by my disabled mother and we spent a most enjoyable few days. The family and staff were very welcoming and we were given 5 star treatment throughout. The breakfast was superb as were the evening meals. Fine dining without a doubt. The room was very comfortable, well equipped and with a lovely view of the bay. The bathroom was modern and with a powerful shower. Plenty of car parking and with disabled facilities in the ground floor rooms. Very pleasant lounge rooms to relax in. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I decided for the Summerhill Hotel because of its Victorian character. We were warmly welcomed, had a nice and tidy room with balcony with view to the bay, the food was excellent, breakfast enough for the whole day, dinner very tasteful, the family and all their helpers very warm and attentive. All in all: next time we happen to be in this part of the UK, we´ll try to get a room at the Summerhill hotel again!

Room Tip: Top floor with view to the bay

Definitely makes a change from modern look-alike impersonal hotels. This hotel has generally retained its Victorian character which means it could be called old fashioned. This is a good or bad feature depending on your taste. The owners are very welcoming and anxious to please, rooms are clean and tidy but maybe now appearing a little tired. We stayed in room 7 with a balcony but, being part of the restaurant's walled roof it did not do the word balcony justice, no view when seated. Would not bother in future but that in no way detracts from the overall good experience. Breakfast is really good, excellent choice, quality and quantity. Didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. Location is good with nearby beach walking distance albeit something of an uphill climb back!

Room Tip: Specify a sea view if it's what you want, most rooms do not have one. See review about balcony.
