“highly reccomended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

a spotlessly clean, well furnished, well run small hotel/ bxb.quality bed and quilts, combined with the quiet location ensure an exellent nights sleep, after breakfast, consisting of, cereals, yoghurt,fruit,juice,toast, full english and tea / coffee, a stroll to the beach or town will take you about 15 mins, close enough to walk, but far enough to avoid the noise. this establishment will suite those that are looking for somewhere that goes the xtra mile to make your stay enjoyable, without being intrusive, everything about the place oozes quality, even the toilet roll.

Room Tip: didnt see other rooms as hotel was full, (with repeat guests) but our room was fabulous

Had a fantastic three weeks stay with Steve and Nic. They were both hugely helpful and couldn't have treated me any better. The cooked breakfast is one of the best I have had and the homemade marmalade was amazing.

Excellent location and just minutes walk from the beach/ Torre Abbey. Would highly recommend a stay here, you will love it !!

Room Tip: All rooms I stayed in were lovely

Al, thank you so much for the lovely review, we're glad you had a good stay with us and hopefully it was a relaxing one even though you were with us on business. Hopefully next time you come and stay will be for more leisure reasons and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. regards Nicky and Steve

Fantastic room and en suite. Welcoming owners and they even pushed forward breakfast for us! For 2 nights- it cost only £65 (2 double rooms, 1 family room) and has a good location. Only a 15 minute walk to beach/centre of Torquay.

I booked the whole hotel for the Lions Convention at the Riviera Centre. We all had a wonderful weekend - some at the convention others doing their own thing. Steve and Nicky could not do enough for us and they provided us with a wonderful meal on the Sunday night for those who stayed on. Thank you both for making our weekend so good. Your hotel is ideal for visiting all of Torbay close to station and the buses what more could you want and free parking available either in your drive or on the road.

Room Tip: If you have any queries just ask Steve or NIcola

Had a fantastic stay. Steve & Nicola couldn't have been more friendly & helpful. The family room was spotless, light & airy with the biggest bed my sons ever seen! The breakfast was lovely, cooked to order and delicious! Nicole's homemade marmalade is lovely.
Situated about a mile from the seafront and close to the train station so an ideal base. Parking is on a steep slope & a little tight , but we managed in an 8 seater! There is free parking on the main road.
Overall Buckingham lodge is warm and welcoming, the hosts make you feel like you've known them forever. I would certainly recommend you stay there & we will be going back.

Stayed for 2 nights for a last minutes break. Lovely modern and clean room, but shower pressure poor. 2 great hosts who were very helpful. Breakfast very enjoyable, as we are vegetarian we were offerred vegetarian sausages, which was great. Location good, not far from Torquay shops and restaurants, walkable or easy to drive to. Free limited parking on the main road or can park in small but steep car park at front of the house
