Another wonderful stay at Amber House and everything lovely again. Ideal for dog lovers however just as nice if travelling without pets. It's the myriad of well thought out little touches which makes every stay so good. This time we visited Dartmouth on the steam train which is a great day out. Dog friendly pub in the nearby park -...

We are always glad to see our namesake Amber - and Willow of course (Both Golden Retrievers) Like many of guests you still find the area has enough to do and favourite places to re-visit so that you can come back time and again. Many thanks for the review. Give the dogs a cuddle from us!

Mum and I recently had our 4th stay at Amber House and once again we were delighted with the accommodation, welcome and those wonderful breakfasts. I always take a dog and she is always made welcome and a breakfast sausage is given every morning for her. The Hotel is ideally suited for dog owners, only a couple of minutes to...

Thank you for your impressive review. We've been doing this for many years now and have found that if you trust people it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy - they are all trustworthy!

Thank you so much for your recommendation. Yes, our local beach ( only a few minutes walk away) is Goodrington Beach but you are still within walking distance of Paignton town and sea front. ( 10-12 mins). We love Goodrington - being less busy and with an old-fashioned charm with it's well cared for park, boating lake and facilities. Thank...

Having stayed at guest houses were the choices for breakfast seem to be of the either/or variety we have come to the conclusion that we may be spoiling our guests tremendously! But why not?
