“Hospitality par Excellence”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

Having recently returned from the Ratcliffe we felt that Kevin and Anna deserved a write up on their excellent service.
The room we were allotted was clean and had an on suite shower room which was a pleasant surprise.
The breakfast was superb in that you got what you ordered by filling in the breakfast form the night previously which helped Anna in her preparations.
My main concerns were the parking facilities and mobility aids.
These concerns were soon overcome as we were issued with a reserved car park permit and the use of the stairlift in the Ratcliffe.
Although Kevin and Anna are a young couple, they do go that extra mile to make your stay an enjoyable one.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

We have had several wonderful stays at The Ratcliffe in Paignton. It is a family run, very relaxing, comfortable guest house, which is extremely well run with all the facilities you would expect to find whilst staying at a high standard hotel, including t.v., sky, wi-fi, tea & coffee making facilities, etc. Kev, Anna and Isabelle always make us so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The standard of the accommodation is excellent - very comfortable, scrupulously clean and beautifully decorated. The location is perfectly placed for all the local amenities, with the beach being 5 mins walk and the train station about the same. The sizeable breakfast was absolutely superb and the rates are incredibly reasonable for the service and accommodation offered. We highly recommend The Ratcliffe and look forward to our next visit at this exceptional guest house.

We recently went for a return visit to the The Ratcliffe in May. We took advantage of the offer of a free photo sitting for our new baby daughter offered as a bonus of our booking.
The standard of accomodation at the Ratcliffe is outstandiing as always, we have returned several times to enjoy the excellent location of the guest house and the top notch hospitality and delicious breakfast. But this time we had the added bonus of having a free portrait sitting for our 6 month old daughter. The owner of the guest house is a gifted photographer and had amazing patience with our wriggly little one. The inhouse studio made it a relaxing experience and part of our holiday. It made our break, that was already an excellent value for money break into one we will never forget as our daughter was captured in time. I would recommend this unique service for any family that wishes to visit the english riviera for a fabulous holiday and take advantage of a top rate photographer at your service.
I will be visiting even more regularly than i have previously. Look at the outstanding quality of the bonus picture!!!!!!
