Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and welcome. Hope to see you again soon.


At The Commodore, Paignton, we strive to provide you with Bed & Breakfast accommodation that will exceed your expectations.


We have formerly achieved a "4 star Guest Accommodation" rating with both Visit England and The AA quality assessments for the Bed & Breakfast service we offer.

However after consulting our guests they were on the whole unaware of our rating and even if they were aware, they were not sure what the ratings meant.


Therefore we have decided to no longer pay to be rated by an outside agency.
