What our customers are saying


Toby did a fantastic job of our hall, stairs and landing over three floors. He was a real pleasure to have in the house and was always on time, delivering what he said, when he said he would. To top it off the work and paint finish was excellent. A trader you can trust.

Top notch job yesterday. Decorating stairs and landing.  Toby did everything perfectly. A highly recommended company.

Mrs S, Dartmouth 21st March 2020.


Toby has been an absolute life saver for us, we have a grade 2 *listed property and nothing we have asked him to do has been too much trouble despite some challenging beams, wonky walls etc. He is always early, works incredibly hard, is friendly and his finish is brilliant - he just gets on with it! Couldn’t recommend him highly enough and he will always be our first port of call in the future.

I have used Butterworth Decorators on numerous occasions and have always been very pleased with the high standard of work. Toby is very reliable and hard working and jobs have always been reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Butterworth Decorators to anyone.

Hi Toby,

Thank you for your stellar job on the bathroom. We were both very impressed with your professionalism, quality of work and relaxed manner. If you need a reference or customer rating please don’t hesitate to ask. I am sure that we will be in touch soon to organise some more jobs around the house.

Kind regards,

Mr J. Totnes, March 2018.

Dear Toby and Mervyn, 

Just a note to thank you for the excellent job you have done for us here at the Meadfoot Bay Hotel.

Your work has been not only faultless, but also of the highest quality, and as a added bonus you finished exactly according to schedule and on budget. 

While one's natural instinct is to keep a good thing to yourself, we will nevertheless be recommending you to the Bridge Group, an owners association comprising of leading hotels and guest houses in the bay area.

In the meantime should you require any reference for future clients we will be delighted to provide them, as indeed we are more than happy for you to use this endorsement on your website.

Once again, thanks for your help in our refurbishment programme and we'll be sure to let you know when all the works have been completed so you can see the finished product and hopefully enjoy a drink with us in the new "Bay Bar".



Phil Harnett, Director, Meadfoot Bay Hotel, Torquay, Jan 2018.
