I stayed for one night at the Ambassador, a short but pleasant stay. Owners Mark and Yvonne were friendly and welcoming, offering tips on places to eat and even some good advice on nice places to cycle the next day. Breakfast was delicious. I'll surely return next time I'm in Paignton.

Second time as a family going to Torquay but first time stopping at the Ambassador Guest House. The service we received from Yvonne and Mark was fantastic, great breakfast and an ideal location. When we return this will be the only place were we will stay again as the family room was perfect.

If you need a top quality guest house then look no further. This was our fourth stay at Mark & Yvonne's home from home. Perfect location for all the local attractions and the beach. Always clean & tidy, the breakfasts are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble for a great break!

We booked the family room (two adults and two children) on the ground floor and the room was great: very spacious and clean. Mark, Yvonne and their family made us feel very welcome and serve a great breakfast. Excellent location, good wifi and car parking available. We would happily return and recommend it to others.
