An excellent B&B . Just a couple of minutes walk from Paignton town centre and the beach and yet situated on a peaceful side street that ensured a good nights sleep. Steve and Kim were wonderful hosts and made every effort to ensure we were comfortable, the rooms were spotlessly clean and well maintained, breakfast was superb and catered for...

Stayed here for a week while on holiday and what a fantastic B+B Steve and Kim make you so welcome and are so friendly. The breakfast choice is fantastic and so varied, then cooked to perfection, Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. With the added touches of a chocolate left in your room every day and delicious home made cakes...

My recent stay at Merritt House was excellent. The bed was soft and comfortable, the room spotless and the hosts Steve and Kim friendly and considerate. The breakfasts were beautifully cooked too. My reason for stating it's the best B&B in Paignton (and I've stayed in a few) is that the hosts were kind enough to offer home made cakes...

Just returned from a few days in Paignton. We stayed at this lovely guest house. Everything beautifully presented and clean. Nothing too much trouble. Steve and Kim were great hosts, and the breakfasts were excellent. Afternoon tea and cake also a bonus. We would thoroughly recommend this B and B without hesitation. Hope to return soon.
