Just have to say a massive thank you to Brian and Amanda, the absolute hosts with the most. Right from the moment we arrived at their lovely guest house we were welcomed with warmth and coffee. We sat in the wonderful garden enjoying the sunshine before unpacking our cases. Our room was very comfortable with everything we could wish for and the whole place was spotlessly clean. Brian and Amanda were very attentive and there was nothing they would not do for their guests. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice of menu. Although they do not offer an evening meal they do offer substantial bar snacks for those wishing to stay at the hotel during the evening. Not a hardship as this guest house is also fully licensed. We were rather reluctant to leave this morning and we shall certainly be returning before the season ends. Thank you both so much for a really enjoyable stay

This is a superb B&B centrally located in Torquay. Lovely room, large and includes everything you could want in a B&B. Very clean and well looked after, very comfy bed. Very helpful and friendly couple running the B&B, would highly recommend to anyone. In an area with literally thousands of B&B options this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Will stay here again when we have more time to see the area.

This was our first trip with a dog. We didn't want to leave him behind but we didn't want to stay somewhere substandard just because we had a dog with us, so Kings Lodge was a completely blind gamble. Did we fall on our feet or what? Fantastic people who love dogs, not just tolerate them, a good bar, beautifully clean and not one trace of the smell of dogs - which was my main concern. Cracking breakfasts, a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere, I could go on forever but I wont, we are going back in a month or so and can't wait. Close enough to everything you need too. I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about this place. highly highly recommended.

Thanks for your wonderful review.( Scoobie had a good look upstairs for Dylan after he left ).I am so pleased that you discovered that travelling with a dog didn't compromise room quality. We aim to be dog and family friendly whilst still retaining extremely high standards. The fact that you re- booked whilst still here was complement enough and we cant wait to meet your daughter next time too.
Best wishes Amanda and Bryan.

I had booked the place based on TripAdvisor rating 4 weeks back. We stayed for 3 nights from July 4- 6. We took 2 rooms.Bryan and Amanda are great hosts to the place. The rooms are clean, neat and very well taken care off. We are vegetarians and they did take very good care and made us very comfortable . A lovely place to stay. Also a homely place. Harbour is just a mile walking distance. We needed to go to do some shopping and Bryan was very nice to drop us and pick us up. I would recommend this place and we had a wonderful trip. If we visit again anytime in future , definitely this will be the place. Nalin from New Delhi , India

Z, me and Bruce the dog, stayed at the Kings Lodge. Never felt more at home with strangers!


Gin Tonics and a bit of world cup television in the lounge!

We had a lovely stay and if we'll ever get to Torquay again, we'll be staying at the Kings Lodge.
Sorry I couldn't say very much when we checked out, I had a trapped nerve in my back, which had absolutely nothing to do with your top quality beds, but only with slinging my backpack slightly too enthusiastically.

Breakfast was really good too.
