Welcome to the friendliest guesthouse in Paignton
Rockview Guesthouse is situated at No. 13, Queens Road, Paignton. This central location means an easy walk to Paignton Train & Bus stations, the shopping centre, Paignton Pier & sea front, and also the picturesque Harbour.
Your hosts at The Rockview are Nigel and Karen Hodson. A warm and friendly welcome is assured as you begin your holiday on the English Riviera. We aim to enhance your visit where you "come as visitors and leave as friends" , which we hope will have you returning as friends year after year.
Nigel joined the British Army at the age of 16, and after several postings in Germany & the U.K. found himself in Chertsey, Surrey, where he met Karen, who was also a serving member of the forces. Nigel and Karen married in 1984 and have 2 children, Samantha and Kimberly.
Nigel left the British Army in 2002 and worked as a H.G.V. driver in the Reading and Oxford areas until 2011. Both these roles involved communicating with people, sometimes in challenging conditions, so meeting guests will be second nature to him.
Karen has held several positions where dealing with people was part of her role. These include working for British Army's only Laundry in Germany, as a waitress in "Officers Messes", and as 3rd hand for a large supermarket chain.
"We aim to please" is our motto to assist our guests in their enjoyment of their time with us at The Rockview and the English Riviera. Please come and visit us, explore the beautiful countryside , enjoy the many local attractions, and decide for yourselves!
