We booked into Merritt House only a few days before arriving. Steve was helpful on the phone, and by email in recommending eateries. We were in the small double. It was small, but perfectly formed and the bathroom was a good size. The decor was clean and fresh. Toiletries were provided. The shower was OK but could do with being...

So pleased we chose this Bed & Breakfast for somewhere to stay. The host Stephen was very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area and places to visit. There was a great choice for breakfast including Hog 'n 'Hen. Our room, which was very clean, overlooked Queens Park and the Steam Railway which was a plus for me. A nice touch...

Very friendly welcome. Explained dining arrangements, went through information pack they supply, which had all the information you could possibly need for a break in Paignton. Room was very attractive and comfortable with all the facilities you expect with this kind of accommodation. Added bonus was a lovely afternoon tea with homemade cakes. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice.

Steve & Kim are great hosts and go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast is to die for, full english, kippers, american pancakes or a combination of anything on the menu! No eating take aways in room but you have the full use of the dinning room, plates, cutlery etc. You don't even have to wash them...

This is our second visit and have already booked for next year. Steve and Kim are fantastic hosts and make you feel very welcome. the bed and breakfast is very nicely located near pubs and shops yet far enough away from the noise.

In Paignton for the BMAD bike festival; excellent accommodation, excellent customer service; the breakfast that was served set us up for the rest of the day (and for the ride home at the end of our stay).! Top notch...! Highly recommended.
