We have just returned from our 10th visit to Kingston House. Despite having to arrive late at night due to unforeseen circumstances, we were given the full welcome as if we had arrived as usual in the afternoon. Jill and Warren were, as always, the perfect hosts all week. Wonderful immaculate bedroom and en suite with White Company toiletries. Warren produces amazing breakfasts (with a special mention for the Breakfast Sundae). Jill's local knowledge and help with booking restaurants etc never fails and makes the whole experience much more relaxing and seamless. We think she's developed extra sensory perception as she almost anticipates what you are going to ask or what information you would like before you've actually mentioned what you're thinking of. Another superb stay and needless to say 11th visit already booked!

Thank you for your wonderful review of Kingston House and very kind words, they meant a lot to us when reading them, and we appreciate you taking the time to do this. It was an absolute pleasure (and fun!) to welcome you both back to Kingston House on your 10th visit! We are thrilled that you always enjoy your visits so much and are able to take advantage of all the many places you can explore and visit via our fantastic bus and rail service that we are very fortunate to have in Torbay. We are delighted that you were also able to revisit the many excellent local independent restaurants we have here in Torquay and that they didn’t disappoint. It is so rewarding for us to know that guests continue to love Kingston House just as much as we do and enjoy coming back when visiting Torquay to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay and leave at the end of their stay feeling refreshed. We hope and try to take the stresses and strains away from our guests as soon as they arrive at Kingston House so that they can relax straightaway and enjoy a well-deserved break and all the little extra luxury touches to make a stay here so special. Warren’s breakfasts are a perfect way to start the day, being able to use such excellent fresh local ingredients, definitely make them especially delicious (our Breakfast Sundae’s are a firm favourite!). We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Kingston House on your next visit to the English Riviera, a warm welcome will be await you both, with a pot of tea and homemade cake ready and waiting! With our very best wishes, Jill & Warren

We have just came home from another fantastic stay at this lovely Guest House. Last year we visited in June and stayed in Room 2 this year we stayed in Room 3 another lovely room. Lovely comfortable beds with crisp clean white linen, excellent ensuite, with White Company toiletries. Tea/coffee facilities with Fresh Milk in a fridge. Handmade chocolates on arrival The breakfast is wonderful especially the Breakfast Sundae, after the full breakfast we only had a cake and coffee till the evening it certainly sets you up for the day. It's also a lovely walk down to the seafront, to which you can walk off the breakfast if you have eaten too much!! Pre booked already for next year😊

We have stayed at Kingston House 4 times now and plan to go back next year. Warren and Jill are the perfect hosts who always make you feel welcome. It is just everything that makes this the perfect stay for myself and my wife. The fantastic breakfast, the handmade chocolates and those little “extras” they do for you. They always seem to know the perfect place to eat and are extremely knowledgeable about the area. Nothing is too much trouble and they make you feel like family. Look forward to seeing them soon.

Having another great stay with Jill and Warren in the fantastic Kingston House. It's great to go to a place that never changes, alway the best, when you look at other peoples reviews believe everything you read is true, Jill and Warren are the best hosts you could ask for, Warrens breakfasts as the best, it sets you up for the day, the best for me is the breakfast sundae, homemade yogurt and fresh fruit..yum.. Not forgetting Jill's fantastic cakes.. We will be back for sure.

Jill and Warren are the most welcoming of hosts in this sumptuous corner of the English Riviera. Kingston house caters for everyone in luxurious surroundings more reminiscent of a 5-star hotel than a b&b. This coupled with the down to earth and friendly approach makes for the most relaxing stay possible. I am a seasoned traveller and have seen a lot of the world, I can’t recommend Kingston House more, it compares favourably with anywhere.
