We have spent the last two weeks at the Kings Lodge. We found Amanda, Brian and Katie superb host, nothing was too much trouble. Even Scooby the dog was always there to greet you. The Lodge was extremely clean. As I had to get up early for work, and wouldn't be there for breakfast, she went out of her way to make me sausage and bacon rolls the night before. If we ever had to somewhere again, the Kings Lodge would be our number one choice. Thank you

Room Tip: The Kings size room is a good size

Very close to the Riviera Conference Centre so Kings Lodge is ideally placed for anyone attending conferences or meetings. Kings Lodge is excellent in every respect for quality of service and accommodation.

We spent a week at the Kings Lodge between Christmas and new year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amanda and Bryan really made us feel so welcome and the fact that the hotel is dog friendly is such a bonus. We were treated to superb breakfasts that set us up for the day exploring Torquay, and Amanda and Bryan gave us lots of good pointers about where to visit. The rooms are a home from home and the whole atmosphere is friendly, warm and welcoming. If you want a hotel that ticks all the boxes to make your holiday a good one, then the Kings Lodge is the place to stay.

Just returned from yet again a lovely stay at this great hotel .Spotlessly clean, dog friendly and very welcoming. Amanda and Bryan are wonderful hosts, and Scooby their Beagle is gorgeous and shares her treats and toys with visiting playmates! This is our third visit this year, and we will be back in 2014!
Breakfast is excellent, the best we have ever had in a B&B, prices for rooms are very competetive, and the bar prices are cheap. Bedrooms are comfortable and decorated well.
The house looks lovely with the tasteful Christmas decorations and will certainly put you in a festive mood.
.Although the weather wasn't brilliant this weekend, we still had an enjoyable stay in Torquay, and visited Plymouth and Exeter for some last minute Christmas shopping. Torquay itself has an excellent shopping centre, and just around the corner from the B&B is a dog friendly pub/restaurant with excellent pub grub called the Bull and Bush. In saying that, Amanda will provide snacks if wanted.
You would be silly to miss out on this little gem, if you are thinking of a winter break, we highly recommend this hotel. A short walk through Torre abbey nearby, brings you onto the seafront, and then an enjoyable stroll along the front to the shops/harbour. Lots of shops and bars/restaurants.

Room Tip: We have stayed 3 times and all rooms are good, but we like room 1 best as it is kingsize.

From the moment that we arrived, we were so make to feel welcome. The warm scone cream tea, was so so a special touch for us. both Amanda and Brian made our 1st short stay in torquay very memorable.

The room was of a standard you would expect in many hotels, and was lovely warm and welcoming. And what can we say about the perfect breakfast the following, it was first class & 4*. With the added touch of local produce, it made it perfect.

This was our first visit to Kings-lodge, and wont be our last. Having a welcoming place to stay when we visit, is perfect, looking forward to our next stay.

To Brian, Amanda (and Scoobie!!) many thanks
