          Lovely couple who do a great breakfast. Smoked salmon and scrambled egg muffin was a nice change for someone who doesn't eat meat. Ideal for a weekend break as close to beach and amenities. Bracken was a bonus!

          My husband and I will be traveling from Malalysia, and our arrival and check in to this hotel will be late at night, most properly at 10 P..M. We will be taking the train from Hear throw Airport / Paddington Train Station to Paignton. Can we check in at this late hour and is it safe and bright enough to walk from the railway station to The Ambassador Hotel?
