We had a lovely stay here in this truly wonderful guest house. There was nothing I could fault, the hosts were friendly, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely, stylish, very clean and had everything we needed including a fridge which was a major plus. The breakfast was exceptional, with lots of choice and superbly presented. I would not hesitate to recommend Brookside Guest House to any of my friends and family.

Great place to stay in Brixham! -
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at Brookside. On arrival, it was easy to find with parking places at the front, and it was only a 10-15 minute walk into the town centre and harbourside area. The room was great – clean, cosy but with plenty of space and well appointed. The choices on the breakfast menu were amazing, and were beautifully cooked and presented, and tasted as good as they looked. Richard and Julie were very welcoming, and very knowledgeable about local sights, event, restaurants and pubs. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Brookside and the place to stay if you’re visiting Brixham.
Hi Ian Please to hear you enjoyed your stay with us hope and that you enjoyed Brixham. Hope to see you both again in the future. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Richard and Julie are very welcoming and everywhere is spotlessly clean. It was a nice touch to have a fridge in the bedroom and proper milk for a cup of tea. The breakfasts were superb - just wish we could have stayed longer to try everything on offer. It was lovely to be able to have a massage on site, which added to the relaxation of the weekend.
Hi Linda Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you enjoyed your treatments. You said when you arrived that you were looking forward to a relaxing weekend and by the time you left said you had achieved this, so we are pleased that your stay with us helped.

A great place to stay! -
The Guest house is in a good location and easy to find. Clean modern and comfortable facilities make it an excellent place to stay. There was a good choice on the breakfast menu and the breakfasts were well cooked. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I enjoyed having an Indian Head Massage and using the Sauna ( I normally find these claustrophobic but this one is heated using Infra Red which enabled me to enjoy the experience more.) I would have no hesitation in recommending this guest house.
Hi Alison Thank you for the review, Julie is pleased that you enjoyed the Indian Head Massage and the new Sauna which is proving popular with our guests. Please do visit us again if your in the area. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Brookside more than lives up to expectations. The parking is easy and right outside. The room was very well appointed, comfortable and very clean, in fact much better equipped than many 4* Hotels. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold food. The location is so convenient with a 15 minute amble to the harbour or catch the bus every 10 minutes into Brixham or out to Torquay.

Would highly recommend and definitely will be going again. If your reading this review via booking.com - go to their own website www.Brooksidebrixham.co.uk and book direct and save them the 15% fee, they deserve it!! We will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay, comfy bed, very clean and lovely hosts. We will definitely be staying there again. Breakfast was exceptional and kept us going most of the day. Only thing my partner was aware of is the room spray or air freshener was strong but she is sensitive to this type of thing.
Hi Tony Thank you for your review, very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you will be visiting us again in the future. We wish you had mentioned to us about the room air freshener as we would not have used any in your room if you had requested this, glad it has not put you off coming back to us though.

Easter weekend -
Fantastic accommodation, lovely people only observation was breakfast slot of 8.30 to 9.00 was a little restricting, otherwise prefect.
Hi David Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, sorry though to hear you felt the breakfast slot was restricted for you both. We advise a time of 8.30 - 9.00 and allow our guests to come down to breakfast at anytime within the half hour slot. This is for two reasons the first is that by having it at this time it allows us to finish breakfast, get washed up & tables re-laid before then starting on cleaning the rooms. The second reason is that we find the guests then leave their rooms to go out for the day around 10am giving them a full day of exploring the sights Devon has to offer them. Of course this does not stop our guests going back to bed if they so wish to as some do. We do hope this has not put you off re-visiting us in the future. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Brookside has everything needed for a stay in Brixham. It is situated a short walk from the town centre and harbour (which you will need after one of Richard\'s breakfasts) but is also on the bus route into town and to Paignton and Torquay, so you do not have to worry about parking the car during your stay. Our en-suite room, one of just 3, was comfortable and well appointed, with radio, TV and Wi-Fi. Highly recommended.
First of all thank you for taking the time to post a review on your stay here at Brookside. It was lovely to meet you both and to here of how things have changed in Brixham since your childhood. We hope your stay brought back some happy memories for you. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Richard and Julie are the perfect hosts for a relaxing break. It starts with a very welcome cup of tea and a smiley face on arrival which puts you at ease for the rest of your stay. The house is spotless and nothing is left to chance. Our room was everything it says it was. Breakfast is a very pleasant experience, one which you have to prise yourself from the table after eating. You definitely need to walk it off. Al through our stay our hosts made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Julie gives the most wonderful massages and Richards scrambled eggs were from another planet. Thanks once again to you both and all the very best for your new adventure. Will be back. Sandy and Fred

It was our second (and certainly not our last)stay with them. Our room, No1 was fantastic the additional touches cake!!!! (which my wife loved) went down a treat. The breakfast was a gourmets feast, and yes Richard we did have enough thank you. Hats off to the chef (Julie). A huge thank you from both of us for making our stay lovely! Thanks for all of the local tips and guides, really helpful. Hope you enjoyed Dartmoor and Julie has a brilliant time in America. Tod & Glenda Hale ps see you again soon

All we could ask for -
Just got back from staying at the Brookside Guest House and it was everything we could have asked for. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable by two perfect host. With a lovely options for breakfast which including freshly made fresh fruit salad, cereal, cakes, yogurt and preordered hot food, which was very tasty. There was a mini fridge in our room with chocolate, water (honesty box payment) and fresh milk for complimentary hot drinks. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room included everything you needed including a quality hairdryer, a mirror that reflected into a smaller portable one (really appreciate by us females who always struggle to see the back of our hair and have to rely on the opinion of the other half, not). We were in the smaller of the upstairs room which was more than adequate for me and me 6 foot 3. Julie the owner offered reiki and massages treatments, which we both had. I have had many massages before and I was not disappointed at all. We both felt very relaxed after. Can\'t finish our review before mentioning \'the shed\' garden room, a must in every bodies garden!! We got back one afternoon with the sun still blazing in the garden, my husband lazed in the garden room (the shed) on the relaxing chair, watching Royal Ascot, whilst I enjoyed the sun on the sun lounger, slipping our vodka and coke, relaxing and chilling. Brookside was in the ideal location, far enough away from the town centre but close enough to walk to, to access the many lovely restaurants, shops and bars. Although we had a car we left it parked up as we traveled by ferry and bus to get to the many places of interest. Julie and Richard are two friendly, hard working people, we run a lovely guest house, which we feel should be awarded a 5 star rating. It was certainly everything we could as for.

Wonderful Break Away -
We booked a couple of days away to visit my son who lives in Brixham. Having never been to Brixham before we looked online for a nice B&B and came across the Brookside Guest House. On arriving my wife and I where greeted by the owners Richard & Julie with the most welcoming smiles I have ever experienced at a Guest House. The room we stayed in was very clean and modern and the rest of the Guest House was the same. Breakfast was very good and nothing was to much trouble for Richard & Julie to get for us. We will recommend this Guest House to family and friends and while ourselves be visiting them again later this year. Richard & Julie a Big Thank you from Mr & Mrs Connor from Slough. See you again soon.
Wow what a review, its nice to know we are on the right tracks. It was a pleasure having you both and look forward to seeing you both again later on in the year. Next time maybe treat yourself to a massage. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Absolutely spot-on! -
Most definitely the best B & B stayed in for comfort cleanliness and quality of decor and interior design together with the added extras - fridge, sweets, tuck box with honesty box for payment. Hosts couldn\'t do enough to ensure stay was to our liking - and excelled with options and quality of breakfast - cooking exactly what we wanted to perfection. Add to that a new treatment room where you can book for Massage, Reiki etc and your stay couldn\'t be more relaxing. Ample parking and just a 10 minute walk down to the shops, restaurants and harbour area Already recommended to locals who we met and will definitely stay there again if return to Brixham.
Thanks for the review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Julie is happy you enjoyed your treatment as well especially as the treatment room is something new for us here at Brookside. We hope to see you later in the year if your down again. Best Wishes Richard & Julie
Reviewer: Lesley ORiordan | Tue 5th May 2015
This place was lovely. The rooms were spotless and there was everything you needed in there and a lot more nice little touches. The owners were so helpful and couldn\'t do enough for you, made you feel so welcome. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a Guest House, plenty of choice and good local produce. We loved Brixham and would definately go back and will stay at Brookside Guest House on our return. Thanks for a great time.
Hi Katie Thank you for your review, we are glad you had such a wonderful stay with us and enjoyed Brixham itself.We look forward to seeing you both again in the future. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

\' Lovely break\' -
Have just returned from spending a 2 night stay at Brookside Guest House. Richard and Julie were lovely hosts and welcomed us with tea in the garden. We stayed in room 3 which was beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and had all you needed to make your stay comfortable. The breakfasts were something to look forward to with a wide choice all cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble and we were given plenty of information on where to eat and visit. There was also parking on drive, what more could you ask for? We would love to come back again. Many Thanks.

Stayed for a short break at the end of the summer 2014. Richard and Julie were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble.

Richard and Julie are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. A lovely cup of tea on arrival, superb breakfasts every day and even going to the trouble of booking a restaurant for us. Would reccomend this place to anyone and will deffinately return.

A Gem of a B&B -
Searching for a quality guest house on the Internet can sometimes be the same as trying to pick the winning numbers in a lottery. However on a recent short trip to visit Agatha Christie’s home at Greenway we found this absolute gem of a B&B in Brixham. Under the new ownership of Richard & Julie Cooke we (a family of 3 adults) were warmly welcomed by our hosts and shown to very elegant and well-appointed quality rooms with extremely comfortable beds guaranteeing a great night’s sleep. The free Wi-Fi was a welcome addition to help with last minute holiday planning ably assisted by Richard with his local knowledge of places to visit and restaurants. The breakfast at the B&B was a delight with a broad menu on offer including local produce freshly cooked to order and served with a bit of style and panache. While we only had a two night stay the area and this B&B in particular has ensured that we will make a return visit!
Thank you for taking the time to send a review on Brookside Guest House we are glad your family enjoyed their stay with us. Glad Mary received the book OK and hope to see you and your family again in the future if you visit this part of Devon again. Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Weekend in Brixham -
We've had a lovely stay in Brookside, Richard and Julie are caring hosts who went the extra mile to make our time as enjoyable as possible. Breakfast was one of the highlight with a varied selection of home-cooked dishes. Table cloth and bedding were immaculately ironed. The place is spotless clean. The room was small yet very practical (check with them if you are over 6 foot as one of the rooms has a slanted wall in the shower). Would highly recommend! Thank you again Richard and Julie.
Thank you for your review of Brookside Guest House, we are glad your stay with us enhanced your visit to Brixham. Don't leave it until your next birthday to make a return visit to us!! Best Wishes Richard & Julie

Somewhere Special -
Richard and Julie have a passion to get everything just right - which it was. Their thoughtfulness and frequent extra touches made our stay a memorable feature of our holiday. The varied, appetising and healthy menu made breakfast an event to look forward to every day. Whilst the harbour is a 15 minute walk away, guests old enough to enjoy bus passes can benefit from the frequent buses that pass the door and good services to all of the best local attractions.
Hi Roger & Sandra We are glad you both enjoyed your stay at Brookside Guest House, it was lovely to meet with you both.

Beautiful B & B -
My partner and I have just returned from a 2 night break at The Brookside in Brixham. Juie and Richard are the perfect hosts and have got absolutely everything covered, in their beautiful bed and breakfast accommodation. We stayed in a Premier Suite, which was really spacious and immaculately clean. Our en-suite room had a lovely power shower, Pecksniffs toiletries which smelt divine, and fluffy towels and robes. Both the bedroom and the lounge areas had TV's and the bed was really comfy. Their breakfast menu beats far bigger hotels we have stayed in, with a really good range of options. Between us, we sampled four different choices, and all of them were delicious! Only a 10 minute walk from Brixham harbour, The Brookside is an ideal base from which to explore the beauty of the Devon coast and I would recommend it to anybody. Thanks Julie and Richard.
Kim & Vas Thank you for your review its greatly appreciated, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Brookside and managed to see some of the lovely surrounding Devon countryside from Brixham. We hope to see you both again in the future, all the best Richard & Julie.

The rooms were clean, well presented and with all the things you may expect in a top hotel right down to bathrobes. Breakfast selection and presentation was far beyond anything I would have expected and tasted great. If you are looking to stay in Brixham, stop looking and book now.

The best breakfast! -
We were tired after spending the day walking along the coastal path so were pleased to receive a warm and friendly welcome together with updates of the day's happenings at the Olympics! The room itself, although rather small*, was immaculate and very comfortable - the extra touches of the bottles of water, gowns and sweets were very much appreciated. We stayed in a variety of B+Bs over the week as we walked the coastal path and we had, by far, the best breakfast at Brookside! It was good to have an alternative option from the usual "egg and bacon etc" - the pancakes with summer berries and bacon were delicious. We would definitely return if we came to Brixham again. *We got to see the other rooms as we left - they were bigger. Our small room was perfectly fine for one night.

Reviewer: Richard Pryce | Mon 9th Jul 2012
We received a very warm welcome and after a journey stuck in traffic we were offered a lovely cup of tea. This arrived with a lovely cake included. Our room was beautiful and everything had been thought of. Our breakfast the next morning rivalled any 5 star hotel it was delicious and plenty of it. You certainly receive a warm welcome from John and Tess and we will definitely be returning.

Young Mature Couple -
We both enjoyed our stay at Brookside Guest House. The room was extremely clean and modern. The bed was very comfy and the sheets and bedding immaculate.John and Tess were the perfect hosts. Breakfast was very nice and the dining room pretty. We very much enjoyed our stay, and would have no hesitation in recommending the Brookside to any couple young or old,although obviously children cannot be accommodated. The ten minute walk into Brixham is all on the flat, so very convenient to any mature couple.

Thank you -
Everything about our stay in Brookside was perfect. Our comfortable room was spotless, beautifully decorated and painstakingly and thoughtfully fitted out. The breakfasts were wonderful in both choice and presentation and nothing was too much trouble for our charming hosts. We could not have picked better for a holiday break that coincided with my wife’s birthday. Thank you, John and Tess.
Thank you John, hope the weather is better in Washington USA

Wouldn't hesitate to stay again! -
What a lovely place to stay! Was able to book in very early as room hadn't been used the previous night, was staying for a cousin's wedding. I booked in at 8.15am and was even offered breakfast which I took advantage of after a long drive from London. My room was spotlessly clean and very well appointed! I was even offered a lift to the venue, although cabs had been pre arranged. The breakfast was to die for and put me in good stead for my long journey home! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and will bring my hubbie next time! Thank you very much for your kind and personal hospitality! xx
Thanks for your kind comments, as we say ,The difference is in the detail, Hopeto see you with your hubbie, John and Tess

Pirate Festival -
We stayed at here for the “Pirate Festival” weekend over the May bank holiday. We arrived 2 hours before the check-in time but this was no problem. After a warm welcome we were shown to our room, which was decorated & furnished to the highest standards. The breakfast was again to the highest standard, and well deserved of the silver ward which it has. I have stayed in some of the world’s top hotels, and this B&B is right up there with them !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Andrew Thank you so much for your generous comments, Great to have had you stay with us . Hope to meet again Best wishes John and Tess

Brookside B&B -
My partner and I stayed at Brookside in August for 2 nights and found the place to be perfect for what we wanted. We stayed in a suite which was very well presented, modern and clean. We went to Brixham without much of a plan on what we was going to do and they couldn't have been more helpful with suggesting places of interest and good places for an evening meal. We would recommend this B&B very highly to anyone considering to visit this part of devon.
One word Daniel " Thanks "
