We found this hotel through trip advisor and were not disappointed. Our room was the superior room. ( no 4) and it was spacious and very clean, with all facilities. 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

Just returned from quick 2 night stay at Kelvin House in order to see Joe McElderry at the Princess Theatre on Saturday night. Joe was great and so was the Kelvin House. The room (room 1) was spotless with all facilities. There is a massive lounge with comfortable, reclining seating and large screen TV. We had specifically asked for a... More

The couple who run it were so friendly and helpful, always smiling and chatting, they gave us tips on where to eat and drink. The room itself was spotless, the cleanest place we've ever stayed, everything was of... More

This small hotel is absolutely spotless and well maintained. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our mini break in Torquay and this was due, in no small way, to the owners of the Kelvin. Carl is a delightful man who was a mine of helpful information, which he readily shared with us. His wife Sharon was never without a cheerful... More

Our three previous attempts to experience good weather in August in the U.K. were disastrous; so it was lovely to arrive at the hotel in bright sunshine, albeit tired after many hours on the M5, and find that our rooms were just what we had hoped for. Travelling with younger members of the family, we were anxious that our booking... More
