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

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kelvin House Hotel, and could not have expected a more welcoming host than Carl and Sharon, who were more than helpful enough in advising us about Torquay. This B&B is a lovely clean and homely place to stay, with a fantastic breakfast making our stay even more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this... More

We were looking for a last minute get away so booked this hotel. It was absolutely great, Sharon and Carl made us feel instantly welcome, they pointed out restaurants and places to see, breakfast was brilliant and the hotel was spotless and well decorated-we will definitely add this hotel to our A list.
