The family room - two interconnected rooms, both ensuite - is nice, big and clean with a handy kitchenette and the owners were friendly. However, when we stayed during February half term, the weather was still very chilly, especially at night, and we were surprised to find that the central heating was turned off from around 10:30 pm to 7...

We stayed for two nights in February, we were met with a cuppa and plate of chocolate biscuits. Steve sorted the luggage and even parked the car, Steve & Nicky made our visit memorable with lovely accomodation and breakfast. We will certainly be coming back, highly recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights in September while visiting a relative in a care home in Torquay. Steve parked the car for us (backing it down the steep slope in front of the hotel) and carried all our bags in. There was a cup of coffee in our hands within minutes and we knew we had found a good place... More

We recently had a few days down in Torquay, and whilst the weather disappointed (rainy), Buckingham Lodge certainly didn't. We were welcomed by Steve and Nicola with a cup of tea and a quick tour of the room and hotel, very informative and no question was unanswered. Our room (junior suite, or Room 3) was fantastic, the room alone twice... More
