I enjoyed my stay at the Kelvin House. The owners are delightful and made me feel 100% at home. Great hospitality, lovely room, great bed and delicious breakfast made me feel very relaxed. Beautifully decorated and comfy. I felt like I was staying at a friends house. This is exactly what I was looking for and after a thorough search... More

My family and I stayed at this guesthouse for a couple of nights. The rooms were spotless and the hosts were extremely friendly and jovial. We were cooked a hot vegetarian breakfast as we requested. We would definately recommend this guesthouse as a great value place to stay in Torquay especially in the peak season.

The owners were lovely and very friendly and informative. We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Torquay over the last few years, some of which were of higher... More
