The Hotel Bonair is a friendly family hotel, which has been successfully run by the same family for many years.  With accommodation for approximately 70 people making it an ideal choice for coach parties and individuals alike, to whom we offer an outstanding holiday.

It is ideally situated on the level on Paignton Sea Front, and is within walking distance to all the local amenities.
We have a lift to most floors. Many of our bedrooms have wonderful sea views, and several have balconies, where you can sit and relax and enjoy the view. All bedrooms are en-suite with showers, and there are tea making facilities, TVs with freeview, telephones and hairdryers in all rooms.

The hotel has a licensed bar, with a small dance floor, and there is entertainment on most evenings. Hot and cold drinks can be purchased all day, and we offer light snacks at lunchtime.

We are very proud of our home cooked meals, and offer a full English breakfast every morning, and there is a varied evening menu if required.
