We stayed one night at the end of June to visit a local Restuarnt with friends. Jill and Warren greeted us like old friends, and the tea & cake on arrival was delicious. We stayed in Room 4 with a large double bed and lovely shower room, the room facilities are without doubt five star standard. We used the guest... More

The Kingston House in Torquay is a an absolute gem. We stayed here June for one night, after an impromptu decision to get out of London for the weekend. Upon our late arrival we were greeted by the owner, and taken to our room in the first floor. He kindly showed us around, ensuring that we were happy and comfortable... More

Stayed 2 nights at the end of June. We were greeted by Jill who offered us tea, coffee and cake. As we had arrived late afternoon on a Saturday, we were wondering where we would eat that night. We should not have been concerned. As soon as Jill asked where we would like to eat, and I mentioned a local... More

Stayed here for just the one night and will definitely be visiting again. We stayed in room number 5 and found that everything about the room was done to the highest possible standard. We have stayed in many a 4/5 star hotel and this place is as good, if not better than most off them. It is certainly a credit... More

The fixtures and fittings were perfect! Jill was so kind about our late check in time and made us feel at ease. The food... More

We found this guest house to be excellent with all the facilities you require. The food was coked beautifully and there was an excellent choice for breakfast, all locally sourced. Hosts Jill and Warren were very friendly and helpful. It was a joy to stay here and we would certainly recommend it to our friends

I must start this review by apologising for its lateness. I did promise Jill I would write this as soon as I got home from my break but life got in the way. So, sincere apologies to Jill and Warren. I almost never write reviews on TripAdvisor or any other site, aside from the rare occassions when I've had a... More

We stayed at Kingston House in the first week of June '14, Jill and Warren are superb hosts, the rooms are exceptional, every last detail has been considered and provided. The choice of breakfast menu is excellent and the food to match. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very much look forward to our next stay at Kingston House.

The owners provide a friendly welcome to their elegant home together with lots of thoughtful touches we have not encountered elsewhere. Our room was large, very clean and comfortable with a smart en-suite. Newspapers were freely available to read in the lounge and the breakfast was very nice, The only downside is the 30-40 min walk into Torquay which is... More
