My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay with our puppy. If you have a dog, this is a great place to stay. If you don't have a dog this is a great place to stay. Amanda, Bryan and Kate are warm and welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Cooked breakies are fantastic, accommodation is spotless and location is spot on.
Amanda recommended some great places of interest for us to visit. She knows and loves the area. Our puppy is a bit of a handful but she felt right at home. Thanks for a great holiday. We would recommend Kings Lodge to anyone.

I stayed here in August with my son during a chess tournament. We had a lovely time. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was great. Amanda and Bryan were incredibly friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back.

Much like others have said we were also delighted with our 3 night stay at King's Lodge.
Places that can accommodate a family of 5 are as rare as hen's teeth so we had low expectations; we expected the usual shoe-horning in to a room with little space.
So it came as a pleasant surprise to find such a well appointed and capacious room.
The breakfast was wonderful, and enough to last us through most of the day thus saving money on eating out! It was also efficiently served and a real lesson to other places in how to do it.
The garden outside was lovely, especially to watch the sun to down, and scooby the hotel dog was unobtrusive and silent which was great for our little daughter who is nervous around dogs.
As it was a birthday weekend for Dad and Son, we also came back to cards and presents which was an unexpected and much appreciated touch.
The hotel is situated a pleasant stroll from the beachfront, and has a nice little bar to round off the day.
We have stayed in hotels all over the world and can honestly say that this was right up there with the best of them.
We wish them every success and heartily recommend them. Put it this way, when we go back to Devon, they would be first on our hotel list, regardless of cost difference. And given how much we shop around to get the best deal, you cannot get a better recommendation than that ;)
You would be well advised to stay here.

We are a family of 5 - two adults and 3 children. The room was laid out lovely and had a double bed, a single and bunk beds. All beds were comfortable and couldn't fault the overall cleaniness of the room. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided and all in all the room provided us with a good base for our holiday. Amanda and Bryan made us feel so welcome and looked after us during our week away. A nice welcoming cup of tea on arrival after a long journey was well received. A very friendly run family bed and breakfast with the guests needs catered for. Breakfast was offered with a good selection of choices and compliments to the chef for the daily fry ups. Kings Lodge comes highly recommended by us and we would have no doubts at all in staying there again.
Thanks again to Amanda, Bryan, Callum and Katie for making us feel so welcome and the BBQ on the last night finished off our holiday a treat.
See you all soon, the Nicholls family
