About Us

We offer you a warm welcome at the Bristol House, a family run guesthouse and open all year round. We are situated on the level, only one hundred yards from the seafront, three minutes walk from the train and bus stations and close to both the shopping centre and parks of Paignton. You have your own front door key and room key, giving you 24 hour access, so you are free to come and go as you wish.

All our rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated, fully central heated and include tea-making facilities and colour tv's. There's a family en-suite and double en-suite and toilets and shower units on each floor. We have a nice TV lounge and the hotel holds a full fire certificate.

We live in a beautiful area and should you tire of the sea, Dartmoor is only a few miles away.

There are so many things to see and do in the area, we are close by to Paignton Zoo, Quaywest Splashdown, Paignton Pier, Crazy golf, mutiplex cinema and Greenway House to name a few.

The steam train will take you on a lovely coastal journey to Kingswear, with a short ferry ride across the river to Dartmouth, enjoying all the gorgeous views, plenty of cafes/restaurants for you when you arrive.

Why not take a ferry ride from Paignton to either Torquay or Brixham and breathe in the fresh sea air and see all the lovely views of the English Riviera Bay.

Call us direct to hear of our availability and prices.
