About the Villa

The Great Western Hotel is a privately owned detached villa, described as one of the finest of its size in Paignton. Built in 1864 as a private residence during the Victorian era, it was later converted into a hotel keeping the original layout and charm of the house. The rooms are spacious with en-suite bathrooms, providing guests with a relaxing and intimate décor.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and personal service, evidenced by guests who come back to stay with us every year.
