The Quayside Hotel was formerly a group of six fishermen's cottages dating back to the 18th century, overlooking Brixham Harbour and Torbay. It is an ideal base for exploring South Devon, known as the English Riviera, "so-called for its mild climate, long sandy beaches, and prevalence of palm trees", says the World Travel Guide.

Nearby are the picturesque naval town of Dartmouth, the seaside resort town of Torbay and Agatha Christie's riverside holiday home (Greenway). You'll be staying a 3-minute walk from Brixham town centre – described by The Guardian as "beautiful all year round" and home to "Devon's finest seafood".

Make sure you visit one of the many art galleries, the Golden Hind replica of explorer Sir Francis Drake's ship, and Berry Head nature reserve, which connects visitors to the Coast Path and some 22 miles of trails. Goodrington Sands Beach, Paignton Beach and Paignton Zoo are all within a 15-minute drive away.

Back at the hotel, the AA-Rosette Quayside Restaurant showcases fresh local produce including fish caught in the harbour -- red mullet, sea bass, pollock and wild salmon, as well as Elberry Cove mussels and River Dart oysters have all been on the menu. Afterwards, have a nightcap in the local favourite Ernie Lister Pub, which has regular live entertainment.

The hotel's bedrooms are all uniquely decorated with a seaside theme and work from Brixham artists and photographers. Upgrade to a Luxury Sea View Double Room, for more of those views -- you can choose between balconies or a bay window seat and a 4-poster or a king-size bed.

The hotel is cute and cozy with lots of character. It is well maintained and has a fantastic restaurant, it’s own little bar for the evening. This is a real gem.

We paid a premium and stayed in Room 8. It's a lovely room with a beautiful walk-in shower. But what captivated us was the view of the quayside, magical at night with all the twinkling lights and beautiful in the day.

Th3 staff are so welcoming. The views over Brixham Harbour are stunning. Food choice is varied and reasonably priced. Lost a star on accommodation because room, although lovely, was so hot even without heating that we had a restless night. Bar is cosy but too packed with a party last night to find anywhere to sit. However, there is a very cosy residents lounge. . Particular thanks to Jackie and Earl for looking after us so we’ll.
