“We'll be staying again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Another lovely weekend break in the Buckingham Lodge. We were there with six other family members, ranging from teens to grandparents...we were all so well looked after by our lovely hosts, Nicola and Steve. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are roomy and the breakfasts are tasty. They even have a well stocked bar. The location is great....just a short stroll down to the seafront through the abbey gardens. We had two lovely days out to Shaldon and Dartmouth, both within a short drive of the guesthouse. Nicola and Steve had endless ideas regarding places to eat and things to do. We'll be staying again soon I'm sure.

Room Tip: The two interconnecting rooms are great for families and come with a small kitchen area with kettle...

We recently spent a weekend at the Buckingham Lodge with extended family and we all had a wonderful time.
The owners, Nicola and Steve, were very welcoming and helpful offering good advice on where to visit and suggestions for restaurants. Nicola also cooks an excellent full English (lots of other choices on offer as well) - the breakfast set us all up for the day.
The rooms were lovely, very clean and the beds were really comfortable.
We'll definitely be back!

Nicola and Steve were very welcoming and made us feel very at home. The room was very clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious with a wide choice on offer of both cooked and continental. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve and Nicola and the location of their B&B was 5 mins away from the seafront and 10 mins from the harbour - brilliant!

We were badly in need of a break and this was just what we needed, a friendly welcome with a comfortable ensuite room. I had arrived with a bad back but not only did Steve see to the bags but the bed did wonders and we left a very relaxed and happy couple. Nicola's breakfast had such a choice and very accommodating to individual tastes. We enjoyed our morning conversations too! Also the location was perfect for walking through the Abbey Gardens down to Torquay where there was so much to do and excellent venues for dining. Nothing was too much trouble in fact Nicola and Steve went out of their way to make sure our stay was an excellent experience. -Thank you.

Nicola and Steve were very welcoming to me and my daughters, we had the suite which was well equipped with a kitchenette, two separate rooms each with en suite which were immaculate. Good cooked breakfasts each morning started our day which were served promptly, have to say their sausages are devine. Would definitely recommend staying and would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Sue and daughters.

We could not have picked a better place for our weeks stay in Torquay.
Steve and Nicola were excellent hosts , nothing was too much trouble and Steve was very knowledgeable of the local area and suggested places of interest to visit. The room was immaculate, and the breakfast was very good ! . The location was ideal as it was only 10 minutes
walk to the beach and harbour of Torquay which had an eclectic mix of shops/bars and restaurants , so a good choice for eating out in the evening. I would Highly recommend a stay
at Buckingham Lodge.

turned up here at last minute due to leaving the previous place due to being very unhappy they catered for us very well room was lovely price quite reasonable compared to some one complaint i personally had was i feel the vegetarian breakfasts could be better as i think meat could well have been cooked with the eggs (sausage taste) however the size and quality is great

Room Tip: the back rooms overlooking the park are lovely

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us in Torquay. I have read your comment about the vegetarian breakfasts and would like to clear up the point about the sausages. The sausages are never cooked with the eggs, they would be either grilled or cooked in the oven, depending on the number of guests staying, the bacon is cooked on a griddle. Our free range eggs are either fried, scrambled or poached depending on the guests choice and are kept completely separate from other items. I hope this settles any concerns and look forward to meeting you both again in the future. Regards Nicola and Steve.
