Very good 8.4 From 9 reviews

Good 6.0
The room was clean, but not much room to get around. The toilet is very tight with the shower and wall, if you want to relax there is nowhere for you to sit unless you sit or lie on the bed, I know this reflex's in the price of the room but it would have been nice to have had a guest room to sit in.

Friendly owners and clean rooms
Nice friendly owners in a central Paignton location, that is handy for both Paignton seafront and also its shops. The only negatives were around the Family room itself, which was very small and made moving around difficult. It was also on the top floor which meant carrying everything up several flights of stairs. That said the current owners have only owned the B&B for a couple of months and have plans to redesign the room to turn it into a luxury double room (currently it's effectively two joined singles), so this review may be irrelevant once the refurbishment has been carried out.

Close to the beach and local pubs and restaurants
We had a very nice stay at bay cottage. Genuinely lovely hosts and great location, so close to the beach front only one street away. Also lots of bars and restaurants and the pier close by. Nice breakfasts and freedom to come and go as we pleased.
