Lovely couple who do a great breakfast. Smoked salmon and scrambled egg muffin was a nice change for someone who doesn't eat meat. Ideal for a weekend break as close to beach and amenities. Bracken was a bonus!

We booked this immediately after our last trip in March as we wanted to ensure we would have a guaranteed stay.

We recently visited Paignton on the South Devon Coast and stayed at The Ambassador B & B just out of the town centre. We had two good-sized and incredibly clean and well equipped rooms, the proprietors were a warm and friendly couple, and the breakfasts were excellent.

We went to Paignton to do the Murder Mystery Train as part of Agatha Christie week. By staying at the Ambassador it added to this special break because Yvonne and Mark are a friendly and welcoming couple. The room was clean and very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was one of the best in a B&B or guesthouse that we...
