We had another lovely 2 night stay in The Crown Lodge in Torquay last week, even though the owners John and Linda have moved on to pastures new, they have been replaced by another John and his wife Pat. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room, we were given the same room as last year, room 5, lovely... More

The hotel is situated away from the seafront and town centre but my wife and I enjoyed the walk. The hotel and room were immaculate and everything worked as it should. The breakfast was also very nice! I'm sure my wife and I will return at some point and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

New owners had taken over the week we stayed so were a little nervous. No need to be as the breakfast was excellent. Freindly greeting and we were in room 1 which is a disabled room, large and spacious. Bit of a walk to the front but not too much of a problem. Only stayed one night but would come... More

Six rooms. Mine was the disabled room on the ground floor. Very clean and modern and comfortable. Had a small fridge (no bar) useful for medicines or wine!.Breakfast was excellent with good choice. There were a lot of nice little attentions to detail. Car parking in front. A good twenty minutes stroll via Torre Abbey to the sea front which... More

Stayed for 2 nights in mid-July. On arrival we met John, who introduced the area, gave us attraction and restaurant reviews and explained breakfast arrangements. The B&B was very clean and well decorated, the bed was comfy and breakfast... blimmen marvellous! Choices of continental, cooked and everything in between (we had both, both mornings and you could have large helpings!).... More

We stayed at the Crown Lodge for 4 nights in July. Our room (Room 6) was lovely. Well decorated, well maintained and spotlessly clean. As other reviewers have said, the attention to detail is very good. The owners of the hotel are very nice people, and are a wealth of useful information. They are always available if needed, but are... More

The owners of this b&b were friendly and welcoming and the room was comfortable, fresh and nicely decorated. Busy road outside, but that can't be helped. Nice touches with mints in a little ceramic pot by the bed which I thought was sweet. I didn't have breakfast on the 2 nights we stayed, but my partner did and he said... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was spotless and the little extra touches, like a pot of mints, tissues and toiletries, as well as a mini fridge made it feel extra special. John and Lynda were great hosts, always welcoming at breakfast time, and very informative about the local area. There was a wide... More

Myself and my elderly mum, stayed in John & Lynda's charming Guest House at the end of June for 4 days, they're a lovely couple, perfect hosts, they work so hard, but nothing is too much trouble. We found the access facilities for the less able so helpful, with dedicated disabled parking, ramps to the front entrance, and a down... More

A big thanks to John and Lynda for making our three day stay so enjoyable. They were the perfect hosts. Breakfast was excellent and offered a number of choices. The room we booked was designed for a disabled person in mind and the adjustable bed and wet room made life so much easier for my wife. They even conjured up... More
