We stayed for a weekend conference with another couple. Kingston House was excellent in every respect. We were made very welcome on arrival with tea and homemade cake served in the comfortable guest lounge. The location was great for the Rivera conference centre and the seafront. The whole accommodation was spotless and nothing seemed too much trouble for the hosts.... More

Having stayed at this B&B on numerous occasions I must say how absolutely delighted I am to have found the place. Jill and Warren are lovely and friendly and staying with them becomes more like staying with friends, so much better than an anonymous hotel! Nothing is too much trouble and the personal touches (remembering to leave us diabetic chocolates... More

We arrived late in Torquay, without booking a room, Jill and Warren went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Every detail in refurbishing the rooms has been thought of with some special touches including air conditioning and heated bathroom floor. Breakfast was excellently thought of and prepared with specials on top of their usual menu. We would... More
