Yet another great stay at this brilliant B&B. Nigel and Christine are so welcoming and friendly and put so much effort into the little things that really make a difference. Breakfast was amazing as always and rooms immaculate. Look forward to staying here again soon with my girlfriend.

We recently spent three nights (over Christmas) at Birklands - very comfortable, close to town centre but quiet. Breakfast on Christmas day came complete with a little Christmas gift - a really thoughtful touch. Christine and Nigel made us very welcome. Would definitely stay here again.

We found this B & B through Googling 'places to stay with downstairs rooms in Paignton' . The location is excellent for the seafront as well as the town.

Christine and Nigel are the perfect hosts! This is the fourth time I've stayed at Birklands and absolutely love it! It's like coming home to a second family.

A lovely b and b. Spotless rooms and excellent breakfast. Nigel and Christine were friendly attentive hosts. Ideally situated 2 minutes walk away from the sea, pubs and restaurants. Would definitely return. Worth every penny.
