1st visit to this little B&B in Paignton, booked in hotels.com

Location is super in a small side road from the beach just 15 seconds to the sea

Hosts were brilliant, even took note of what we liked ie saw I cut the fat off my bacon (not that there was much) so the next morning arrived my pre trimmed bacon that's not just good customer awareness that's great!

Rooms were clean and tidy and spacious we were in room 7

No parking but they have the ability to give parking at the inn on the green car park for a discounted rate of 3.50 per day so a real bargain

Hotel less than 1 minute to selection of restaurants and just a few mins flat walk to the shops

Definitely recommend a visit

Thanks garry and becky

Around the back is parking at a very good price.Simon and Maria are so friendly,helpful and accommodating.Wide variety of choices for breakfast from cereals and cooked.also if you had any dietary requests.If you were unable to have breakfast they were more then happy to supply you with a lunch.This guest house is so Ideally situated about 200 metres from seafront and about the same to main high street and restaurants.Really reasonably priced.Definitely would recommend a stay here.We have certainly enjoyed our week end break and would be more then happy to stay here again.

We stayed last night whilst on a weekend break for our daughters 7th birthday. I had phoned the guest house during the week prior to our stay to ask if they would be able to get a helium balloon to put in the room for our daughter on our arrival. This they duly did, along with some happy birthday banners, and a wrapped box of chocolates for her. This was totally unexpected and a really nice gesture.

We received a very warm welcome from Simon and Maria and were made to feel at home. The room, although maybe a little dated for our tastes, was very nice all the same. Bunk beds for the kids and a double for us were all very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the shower even for me at 6'4" was useable without having to stoop.

There was a good choice range for breakfast. We all had varying cooked breakfasts all of which were plentiful and very tasty. Cereals and plenty of toast on offer too, along with plenty of orange juice and tea/coffee.

Nothing seemed too much trouble for our hosts and considering they've only been running the place for 7 weeks was all the more impressive.

I would describe Birklands as a typical seaside resort guest house but you can be assured of a warm welcome and a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We had room 2 which was a family room. It did have a sea view, albeit a distant one

We wanted a four day break in Paignton, so by off chance we rang the birklands b&b to see if they had any rooms, to find they had but were due to go on holiday themselves when we wanted to book, but Nigel and Christine put there holiday back so we could have our holiday and have somewhere to stay, we arrived late on the Monday evening and they waited up for us, and explain everything to us, we had a warm welcome, the rooms were spotless, clean towels everyday, breakfast from 8.30, and we must say there was plenty of food on offer for breakfast, the birklands is a very short distance from the beach and a very short distance from town so a great location, Christine and Nigel make us very welcome into there b&b and looked after us fantasticly, we would highly recommend this b&b to anyone that is thinking of staying in Paignton for 1 night or a couple of weeks, the birklands is the p!ace to stay you will not be disappointed. We will be going g back and look forward to seeing Christine and Nigel again, thankyou so much guys you were fantastic

Room Tip: Very quiet area, rooms are spacious, en_ suite bathrooms,
