Carrington Guest House Paignton

About Us

The Carrington Guesthouse is positioned on the level nicely between Paignton beach and town centre. 100 yards in either direction can take you to either the Seafront or The town, both with Amusements, Shops, various Restaurants/Cafes and Bars.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Carrington, which is strictly no-smoking throughout. The building features seven guest bedrooms split between the first and second floors. There is a light and airy dining room for serving our home-cooked full English breakfasts or lighter alternatives, as well as a south-facing, front terrace, ideal for lounging on those warm summer evenings!
All guest rooms have colour televisions with built-in Freeview, alarm clocks, hairdryers and complimentary beverage trays. Ironing facilities are also available upon request. Rooms vary from single person to family size accommodation, with reduced rates for children who share a room with their parents. Due to potential allergies and lack of facilities, we do not allow pets into the guesthouse.

Whether you are just passing through, looking for a short break in Devon, playing golf, fishing, sailing, house hunting or looking for a family holiday by the sea, for Bed and Breakfast by the sea, we are here to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

All our rooms can be booked online with immediate viewing of availability and instant confirmation of booking. See below for instant checking of availability.

Breakfast is served in the dining room between 8.30am and 9.15am every morning. Earlier breakfasts can be arranged if needed. We will endeavour to accommodate any special dietary requirements guests might have (please give us notice of such requirements where possible). 

Rooms will be available from 2.00pm on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 10.00am on the day of your departure.

Central Heating
The Carrington is centrally heated throughout, with each room being individually controlled for the comfort of our guests.

Parking Facilities
Free parking available on Beach Road off-season (1st October-30th April) but from the 1st May until the 30th September we can offer a reserved bay or a permit in the nearby multi-storey car park - charges will apply.  (Subject to availability)

Pets and/or Guide/Assistance Dogs
Due to potential allergies in other guests, and a lack of facilities within the building itself, we do not allow pets into the guesthouse.

Tourist Leaflets
Publicity leaflets on local attractions are located in the hallway and first landing for your convenience.

Ironing Facilities
An iron and ironing board are available for the use of guests, and is available upon request.

No Smoking
For the safety and comfort of all our guests, the Carrington Guesthouse is a non-smoking establishment throughout. We would ask all guests to respect this during their stay. Smoking is permitted on the patio at the front of the guest house.

There is plenty to do and see around the area including Paignton Zoo, the steam railway, ferries to Torquay, Brixham & Dartmouth, crazy golf and the geopark.
