“Bentley Lodge the perfect guest house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Having just returned from a five night stay at this guest house David & Kim our hosts strive to make all their guests most welcome as on arrival we were greeted with freshly made pot of tea & biscuits which was served on the decked patio area of the very well maintained and laid out garden. Our room was excellently presented and was of a very high standard of decoration and cleanliness and very well furnished. Breakfast choices were excellent and always presented freshly cooked to your liking. We would not hesitate to return to this guest house again and would fully recommend to others looking for high specification of accommodation. The walk into town is approximately 20 minutes which is mostly level and easy, although the local bus service is extremely frequent which we used on most days leaving our car at the lodge's free car park.

We stayed here for 2 nights on 27th Aug and enjoyed our stay at the Bentley lodge.

We were able to check in earlier than stated as we turned up earlier than we expected. Rooms were very clean, we had room number 1 which had a bay window with a couple chairs which was nice to sit and people watch. Had a problem sleeping if leaving the windows open, but nothing to do with the B&B, we are just used to living in a quiet area and the B&B is along a main road.

Breakfast was lovely and lots of choice. You pick what you want the day before and a time slot you want and you only have to wait a few mins and out comes your breakfast.

Kim and David were very good at recommending places to see/eat. First night we ate at Ocean Drive which was just up the road. Overpriced average food. I wouldn't bother. Second night on Kim's recommendation we ate at Simla Spice in town and it was lovely if you like Indian food.

One thing baring in mind is the lodge is about 30mins walk into the main town/harbour area.

Overall, we would stay here again.

Well this was our 3rd visit to Bentley Lodge and the 2nd with Kim and David as proprietors. The perfect hosts. And to be honest, it just gets better and better. We felt like we were visiting old friends. Its the perfect location for walking in to Torquay or exploring further afield by car. Hospitality is 5* and they couldn't have done more for us. Bedrooms and dining area were immaculate throughout our 4 day stay and we always looked forward to our varied and extensive choices of breakfast each morning.
Already looking at dates to return next year.

Kim and David we the prefect hosts. Their recommendations for local walks and activities were most welcome and made our stay in Torquay very enjoyable. The standard of Bentley guest house exceeded our expectations, the room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was of a very high standard; Kim and David took time to converse and made us most comfortable. We would certainly recommend Bentley Lodge to friends and family.

We are nearing retirement and I run my own business. David and Kim made us most welcome.
Kept their distance and not in your face. We had room 5. Value for money for a three night weekend was unbelievable. Breakfast , having the option of smoked salmon with your scrambled egg. Cooked to your individual requirements. If not coming by car Use the local train station gets you everywhere. Also the no 12 bus hop on hop off service was great.

David and Kim are very plaid back , hardworking to make sure your stay is a memorable one.
Well done weI will be back...... David and Sheila from Epsom , Surrey.

Bentley Lodge is a quintessential British guest house which excels in what it does. We only had a one night stay but it was a very comfortable one. Kim and David are excellent hosts, offering suggestions on good places to visit and where to eat and the hotel is immaculate and spotless. The room was well equipped, with an efficient hair drier and an iron and ironing board, and also tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast could be ordered in advance so that it was ready whenever you wanted it - we breakfasted overlooking the beautifully maintained garden which guests can use if they wish. Would definitely stay there again if in South Devon.
