An unusual hotel, but a great experience!

It made a refreshing change from the usual modern surroundings. Yes, it's old-fashioned. Yes, the private museum of model trains and railway memorabilia makes it really unusual. But that all made it a different and enjoyable stay. The owners were different, but really friendly, chatty and welcoming - and the breakfast was great! It's close to the sea as well. A nice change from the Premier Inns of this world!

The place may not be everyones 'cup of tea' it's a little dated, BUT like an old pair of slippers it's very comfortable, Cathy the owner is lovely and so helpful. The breakfast was one of the largest I've ever had put in front of me, well cooked and presented. Lovely garden in the front and the Railway exhibits are wonderful. Only stayed for one night to attend a family event, but would have loved to stay longer.

Friendly warm welcome, affordable B & B,

Posted May 31, 2012
We had a very warm welcome on arrival from Cathy and Mel, with the offer of tea or coffee. Compact double bedroom was ample for our 3 day break, with tea and coffee in room and more than enough storage space. Full English breakfast with cereals, toast, juice, tea and coffee. Plenty to keep you going until evening. A lovely hotel with bags of character and interesting collections, plus off road car parking. Very close to sea front, railway station and shops, can recommend local Indian and Chinese restaurants, both in Hyde Street, for evening meals. For live music “The Spinning Wheel” on sea front offers live music with a varied selection most evenings, just a short walk from hotel. We also found some other great little pubs in Paignton with live bands. Thank you Cathy and Mel for making us so welcome, our short break went too quick. Look forward to seeing you again when next in area.

The Owners are very friendly and made our stay very pleasant. We felt very secure and the location is within walking distant to the beach. Very good break. Thank you.
