We ended up booking Amber House completely out of chance when the weather washed out our camping trip, we booked really last minute with little research - but what a find! A home away from home! On arrival we had the warmest welcome, the whole building is beautiful decorated, light & clean including our room. Our on suite was larger than average with a lovely hot power shower & complimentary bathroom miniature shower gels, shampoos & body moisturiser. There was tea, coffee & biscuits (that were replaced). There was also a DVD library & DVD player in the room to escape the miserable weather. There was a lovely sun area where there was complimentary afternoon tea & cake (homemade and delicious) also a self service bar which was a great addition. The breakfast was also great, continental & cooked options. I would highly recommend the poached eggs & enquiring the "secret" recipe.

Location wise it is great, close to Paignton seafront & not far from Brixham and other places if you wanted to go further afield.

If you want a relaxing escape - don't hesitate to book!

My husband and I came across this beautiful guest house by accident whilst looking for somewhere to stay in Paignton.. it was a bonus that they accepted dogs! decision made, 4 nights booked with dogs in tow.
Right from the warm welcome with tea and cakes on our arrival to the goodbye hug as we left our hosts could not have been better.
Our room "Poirot" was beautifully tidy and clean with lots of space for two dog crates. It didn't have a sea view but that didn't matter as we were only a short walk away from the beach.
The 2 minute walk to the park where i could let Flossie and Muppet off the lead to run around with new doggie friends was just perfect, and on one morning they even got a play on the dog friendly beach about 4 minutes away, before breakfast... other mornings the tide was in.
Breakfast was lovely, with often a complementary sausage for each dog, served in the dining room or outside in the garden and really set us up for a day walking everywhere.. we took the dogs on the ferry to Torquay, on the train to Plymouth, on the steam train and ferry to dartmouth, in lots of cafes and in many parks...all fantastically dog friendly.
Thank you so much for a brilliant stay. xx Laura and David

We enjoyed a three night stay at Amber House in the Tall Ships room. The Guest house has good parking and all you need for a good stay. The hosts interact well with Guests and provide a good breakfast, Afternoon home made cake is included a nice touch.

From the excellent location walking distance to the town centre and beaches, to the superbly appointed room Bayview, Debbie and John made sure our stay with them was flawless. The bed was comfortable and the views of the bay were stunning, we enjoyed a varied breakfast menu beautifully cooked and yummy cake in the afternoon, The friendly atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing nothing was too much trouble, their local knowledge was really appreciated and helped make our stay perfect, we will definitely be back. Sally and Ray

Arrived on Friday to a great warm welcome was just in time for the complementary Afternoon cake and a cuppa which was taken outside .The cakes are made by Debbie the owner and you can even order one to bring home for a reasonable price.
I had forgotten Benji's food bowl and Debbie bought one straight away and Benji had a good food mat waiting in the room .
The single cove room was a good size as was the bathroom which is supplied with top of the range toiletries which are replenished daily.The towels are so soft as well .
The breakfast is fantastic with a good choice and of great quality produce and certainly sets you up for the day.
The location is fantastic is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Paignton with 3 routes to walk according to where you want to end up .Your a bunny hop away from Goodringtom park and beach and the bus stops are only 5 minutes away.
Amber house is a true gem and have already booked for a second visit.
