Best staycation has by all! Steve welcomed us on arrival after being very understanding with our lateness a 3.5 hour journey took 7, he welcomed us in gave us a very informative welcome showed us the map and gave recommendations for walks and things to do. We had R5 the superior king was spotlessly clean and comfy cannot complain one bit. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Paignton, it’s perfectly located. I don’t normally feel relaxed after a holiday in the UK like I do when we go abroad but not at the Merritt House, I feel totally relaxed and refreshed!

Absolutely perfect stay at Merritt House. Kim & Steve were excellent hosts and nothing ever seemed too much trouble for them. Breakfast was fab with a good 'freshly prepared' selection which set us up well for the day ahead. Although the room chosen was the small double, the en-suite bathroom was very spacious and had everything we needed. Can't fault this B & B and would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Paignton and the surrounding area.

Booked a 4 night break in Paignton, Merritt House mid July. Wonderful hosts, great accommodation and perfect breakfast! Will come again and would highly recommend it! With Covid-19 restrictions still in place we hardly felt any difference. Ben Martin
