We wanted a quiet, battery recharging weekend which we decided to take on a spur of the moment decision. The Paragon s a small guesthouse run by the third or fourth generation of the family. It offers bed and breakfast only, but has a very nice lounge cum bar with fine views to the sea. Our room was beautifully clean,...

There are a lot of stairs to the rooms so not recommended if u struggle to walk. Mike and Lynn make...

After reading all the positive reviews of this 'hotel' I am astounded. I can only assume that the other rooms are of a completely different standard to Room 17 on the top floor. To start with I was expecting a 4 star hotel which booking.com bills it. It is actually a guest house (as we were informed by the manager)...

lynnandmike123, Owner at The Paragon, responded to this review

On Booking.com, guesthouses/hotels and B&B’s are referred to generically for ease of translation across their services. However, how can anyone after reading the description which clearly states that we are a ‘guest house’, possibly mistake us as a ‘4-star hotel’. The Paragon is also described as a Victorian mid terraced property on Booking.com with images of the outside and all...

Yet another visit and a great time had by ys both, really clean, really friendly, nothing too much trouble our last visit for this year but will be back in 2017, if you want somewhere clean and friendly with amazing views of North Bay you can't beat the Paragon!

We have been stopping here every year for the past 22 years. The views from the hotel lounge and seaview bedrooms are superb, Mike and Lynn who run the hotel are very friendly and we always look forward to seeing them and a superb breakfast is a bonus. There are some lovely walks close by, a visit to Peashome Park...
