We have just returned from yet another wonderful stay in this lovely welcoming hotel. John and Lynda are the perfect hosts and ensure that everything is perfect for your stay. The breakfast is by far the best in Torquay, plenty of selection and as always the sausages are to die for! The room was wonderful and clean, with the comfiest beds and fluffiest towels. It is for all these reasons we have been returning for 6 years and will be coming back for many years to come!

I cannot fault this bed and breakfast. We were greeted with a smile on arrival, shown up to a fabulous room (room 5) which had a double bed, television with dvd player and a mini fridge - which we were offered a jug of fresh milk for our coffee! The bed was very comfortable and there are blackout blinds in the bedroom too.

Breakfast was lovely! The best we've had in a bed and breakfast actually. The room was cleaned immaculately every day and they even found the back to my ear ring and left it safely on the bedside table for me!

The best B&B experience we've had and would definately go again.

To make it even better DT's pub is just above the hotel and run by two very friendly landladys.

Thank you for leaving this great review for us. We always appreciate people taking the time to do this for us.
There is lots to do in and around Torquay and we do have fabulous restaurants and pubs, some just a five minute walk away from Crown Lodge- like DT's.

Lovely warm and friendly hosts. Everywhere immaculate, lovely comfy bed with lovely pillows, Towels were amazingly soft and pure white.Little extra touches such as cotton wool balls, nail clippers, emery boards etc, great attention to detail. Breakfast was the best we ever had anywhere we have stayed before and so much choice. Close to the beach and harbour. We would definately come again and reccomend to everyone.

My wife and I stayed here for our Anniversary trip for four nights. We were very pleasantly surprised when we walked inside and even more surprised when we saw the room. The entire place is immaculately clean. Very high standards. John & Lynda were very welcoming and pleasant. They really gave it a homely feel. They were even kind enough to offer a jug of milk on arrival.

This hotel is on par with some of the higher level hotels, but on a personal level. Everything that you needed was in the room, if it wasn't you could ask. The beds were extremely comfortable, had a very good sleep every night. Breakfast was wonderful and very tasty. We looked forward to it every morning. We had a cooked breakfast every morning, but there are other options as well.

Would very highly recommend staying here and we will be suggesting this place to others. We will be staying here if we are in Torquay again.

We stayed at the Crown Lodge as the last night of a camping and B&B road trip around the south west of England and upon arrival we were warmly met and given a surprise upgrade to a larger room. We had hoped our stay would be restful at the end of the holiday but had our expectations more than matched. Our room was stylish, spacious and excellent value for money coming equipped with fridge and DVD player and our host was incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and filling and the only downside to our entire stay was the Torquay weather which was dark and damp. I would happily return to Crown Lodge and on a brighter day to the town itself.

Yes, sorry we can't do much about the weather and it's not much better at the moment. We don't have any snow though! It is generally a degree or two milder than most of the U.K. throughout the year, so maybe we'll see you in the spring.
Thank you for your review, and glad your stay at Crown Lodge was a pleasant one.
Best wishes,
Lynda

This is the best place for me in Torquay. Every time i visit Torbay i like to stay at this hotel. It's clean, close by the city center, close by the train station (Torr), and the staff is just excellent in welcoming the guest and explaining everything.
