Just got back from a fabulous weekend in Torquay. We stayed at the Kingston House B&B 5 *, could have quite easily have given it a few more stars!!
Warren & Jill are THE perfect Hosts and absolutely nothing is too much trouble.
We met family there and they had travelled down by train, They were collected from the train station, driven to Kingston house and were enjoying Tea and Biscuits by the time we arrived!
Upon our arrival we were immediately offered Tea, Coffe,Beer, Wine and cake, after a six hour drive due to the beloved M25 we took up the offer of the beer!
Once unpacked and ready to go we were given a lift into town and shown the way, and best places to go, Jill had already booked us into "the Hole in the Wall" for our evening meal and i highly reccommend, so reasonably priced too.
We were told about the "Round Robin Trip" which we did on the Sunday, what a lovely day too.
Sunday evening we were reccommended a "good" steak house approx 10 minutes walk from Kingston House, from the outside the "Ocean Diner" doesn't look much but i can honestly say it is prabably the best Steak you will eat in Years!
Breakfast at Kingston House is Devine! Warren certainly knows how to cook a good Devonshire breakfast and Jill is BRILLIANT front of house, ( she also makes a very good Lemon drizzle cake)
The rooms were kept IMMACULATE, and were very good sizes, we stayed in room 5 which has a lovely 4 poster bed the bed was very comfortable and the towels and linen are of the best quality.
There is a very generous sized guest lounge, Jill goes out each and every morning and gets the daily papers in for the guests.
All in all, Staying at Kingston house has been the BEST B&B experience all round and i cannot reccommend it highly enough.
Kingston House is approx 20-25 mins walk from the sea front and once there we didn't need to use the car once!
