This is our third stay and this time a smaller room. This is a top quality b&b and the owners think of everything. Perfect room, comfy bed, lovely en suite, super shower, delicious breakfast in airy dining room plus TV, WiFi - putting many 5 star hotels to shame. Small touches like a fridge with milk and go honesty box... More

Your review is great - thank you so much. 3 times - but in the smaller room this time. Yes - we do have a wide range of rooms on offer - all individual - that's the beauty of staying somewhere like Amber House - you don't get the regulation cloned bedroom of some of the larger corporate establishments so...

I went with my Mum for a long weekend to stay at Amber House. We were made ever so welcome right from the start and shown around our rooms, including how tv and satellite worked (important for mum).

A perfect weekend for a lovely couple of guests. We know your Mum was charmed by the Coast room - pretty room in pink, cosy and that lovely sea-view that you can enjoy sitting down at the window.

Ha- the super-duper Agatha shower room has obviously pleased you. That little remote sensor light on the illuminated mirror is such good fun isn't it? I love showing guests it so I can have a play!

I visit Paignton a couple of time a year. It has taken years to find a B & B that I wanted to return to. Paignton is awash with old fashioned, stuck in a time warp accommodation that is really quite depressing. Amber house is fresh and stylish. It is spotlessly clean, and care has been taken with the decor... More
