What a find! Everything about the Ambassador was 5* from start to finish. Great hosts, nothing too much trouble for Graham and Lesley. Covid checks on arrival and departure. Drinks on arrival and everything explained clearly. Our room was gorgeous and had everything we could have possibly needed.....and more. Lovely warm shower and large white fluffy towels. Breakfast was probably the best we'd had in any B&B, plenty of choice, freshly cooked, delicious and delivered with a smile and a chat each morning. Free wi-fi and car parking and close to town. I honestly cannot not recommend this place enough. If you want to stay in Paignton, don't bother to look anywhere else. Thank you Graham & Lesley and we hope to stay again sometime next year.

Very friendly, and helpful owners of this delightful B&B. Covid precautions in place throughout, including checkin & departure. Wonderful selection for breakfast, all freshly prepared, that sets one up for the day. Rooms very clean with plenty of amenities, lovely big wrap around bath towels too, B&B has car parking onsite & wifi. Also areas to sit out & inside where a welcoming drink is served on arrival. B&B is in a fabulous location, minutes walk from the seafront, the main shops & bus & train stations, so if you want to leave the car & explore by other means they are close by. Easy to access the South Devon coastal area of Dartmouth, Salcombe, Beer or the inland towns Totnes, Kingbridge or travel into the Dartmore National Park. Highly Recommended, i would not hesitate to return if i was in the area again.

A great guest house with lovely staff just what we wanted. We arrived just before halloween and the rooms were decorated to suit the occasion which was a very nice touch. A short walk to the seafront which was just what was needed after the superb breakfast.

Dear Paul and Karen, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we appreciate the high rating. Delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you like the little Halloween decorations. I think as we get older it is good to bring out the kid in us once in a while.
