We traveled down to Paignton without booking anywhere to stay and stumbled upon Birklands guesthouse, Christine answered the door and made us feel at home straight away. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. After meeting Nigel we realised after staying in Paignton over so many years staying in different Guesthouses this was the best place we had stayed...

Room and en suite bathroom were spotlessly clean and comfortable with distant view of the sea. Great choice of breakfast items - cooked fresh. Parking is available at a small cost and is just round the corner, with loading allowed right outside. Helpful hosts.

We always try to stay at this guesthouse when visiting Torbay. Nigel and Christine are lovely people and blend friendliness with professionalism perfectly. They have taken time to be able to advise on good places to eat and places to visit. Breakfast is excellent.

Very well run B&B with wonderful welcoming hosts in Nigel and Christine. My wife and I had a double and our 3 teenage boys the family room. Rooms were clean, comfortable and cozy. The breakfast is ordered the night before so that they can have everyone seated and served between 8.30 and 9.00 which created a nice opportunity to meet...

Lovely welcome from Christine & Nigel-this was an old style beach guest house, central to Paignton in Devon. They were close to Marine Parade & activities, small room & ensuite, no flannel supplied (which would of been nice). A lovely friendly couple, nice breakfast. They stay open all year & have many rooms, so suitable for families.

My partner and I have stayed here several times and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The room is clean with a very comfortable large bed. Nigel and Christine are very welcoming indeed and can't do enough for you. Breakfast is delicious with a menu to choose from. Highly recommended.
