My sister and I were made very welcome by Lynda and John. Our room was spotless as were the dining room and the entrance hall. Lynda and John were always happy to help if we had any queries. Breakfast was excellent. The food was of a high standard and we particularly liked the lovely jars that the jams and marmalades were in. Lynda and John - the jars we used are still there of course!

This is one of the best guest houses we've stayed in. The accommodation lacks nothing, the breakfast is very good and Lynda and John thoroughly deserve all the positive comments left by other guests on this site. The Crown Lodge is about a 10 minute stroll from the sea and 20 minutes from the town centre, but it's a pleasant walk and, if like us, you arrive by train, Torre Station is very close by.

Room Tip: Room 7 is at the front of the house overlooking the road (through 3 windows), but there was no disce...

Visited with my boyfriend for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Our room was super clean, I'm over the top when it comes to cleanliness and even the tiles and skirting were spotless. The bed was very comfortable and better than a lot of 4*/5* hotels I've stayed in. Breakfast was delicious! The eggs in particular were really well cooked, I usually hate fried eggs but I loved them both mornings. Just a small, straight walk to the seafront. Couldn't fault it if I wanted to. Lovely people, lovely place, I hope we can go back at some point.

We stayed for two nights, and were made to feel very welcome. The room was spotless, comfortable and with lots of little extras which made our stay more enjoyable e.g. hairdryer, toiletries, good selection of teas & coffees etc. Lots to choose from for breakfast, food extremely plentiful and well presented. Would definitely recommend!

Spent 2 nights at the Crown Lodge over the weekend and thought it was a lovely little B&B! The breakfast menu was incredibly extensive for such a little place and the owners were so friendly and accommodating.

Although it's a little walk to the town centre I managed to walk there, around and back at almost 8 months pregnant and it's a lovely walk past all the gardens and along the seafront.

We had a sunny little room with everything we needed - digital TV, clean and comfy bed, toiletries, tea & coffee and the nice little touches here and there were lovely.

We always got a parking space although there are only about 6 spaces, lots of parking on the road outside too.

Would definitely stay here again and am actually getting hungry now thinking about the breakfast...! Was a lovely weekend. Thanks!

PS - make sure you visit Cockington Village and eat at the Drum Inn. Was lovely.

Full marks again, thank you so much! We agree the transport system around here is very good, and time permitting we are always happy to collect and drop off people at Torquay main station (if you can't get on/off at Torre station which is, as you say,at the top of the road) or coach station.
Glad you were happy with your choice - Crown Lodge
