Value For Money

So many businesses these days make a great deal of telling their customers what they don't want and how they can offer their product as budget, cheap, low cost and save you lots of money. Funny how it rarely seems to work out like that though.
Airlines and hotels will tell their customers what they don't include in the price and then have lists of "optional extras" charged at over inflated prices.

At Harbour lodge we listen to our guests and endeavour to provide them with what they tell us they want and include it in our prices.

So as as well as comfortable en-suite rooms our tariff includes:-

  • A cold buffet followed by a good hearty freshly cooked Breakfast.
  • Parking.
  • WiFi
  • A good choice of in room beverages with fresh milk available
  • Toiletries
  • No extra Credit/Debit card charges
  • No extra booking fees

There are no optional extras, nothing else to pay  Add excellent customer service and extensive local knowledge to help you make the most of your stay and  you will see that we offer "All inclusive value for money!"

Park For Free In Paignton!

Park for free in Paignton when you stay at Harbour Lodge.

At Harbour Lodge you will get an off road parking space included as part of your stay.

No paying for a space that might not be available upon your return if you use your car.

No special priced passes to allow you to park in the local multi-story overnight.

No driving around the streets looking for the elusive kerbside space as close to your accommodation as you can get.

Quite simply park your car on our car park, easily unload your luggage and take the short stroll into town or to the beaches.
Leave the car all day and use the local buses to get round the area. Buy an all day ticket, or use your bus pass, and hop on and off as you like. Use the ferries or ride the steam train to Dartmouth.

Another benefit of taking your relaxing break at Harbour Lodge.

Paignton Tourist Information

Due to local council budget cuts Paignton Tourist Information Centre is now closed permanently

This is just one more reason to stay in a B&B owned and run by local residents who will have all the local knowledge and information and be able to help you enjoy your stay.

At Harbour Lodge we will continue to offer all the information on attractions and activities within the English Riviera and the wider South Devon area.  We also provide details of alternative travel, bus timetables, theatres, restaurants and of course our local expert knowledge will be available to help you make the most of your stay with us.

Steaming in 2013

A nostalgic trip on the steam railway from Paignton to Dartmouth has always been a favourite trip of many of our guests, often combined with a boat trip on the river Dart. 

This year it gets even better with even more steam and more nostalgia. The last remaining coal fired paddle steamer "Kingswear Castle" in operation in the UK has returned to the river Dart. She was built in 1924 at Philip & Son of Dartmouth and plied her trade between Totnes and Dartmouth until 1965. (her engines are even older, dating back to 1904),  

Harbour Lodge is only a 10 minute walk from the Steam railway station in Paignton so an ideal base to enjoy this and many other attractions that the area has to offer

It's a trip we are looking forward to taking.
