Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had such a great stay at Kingston House B and B with hosts, Michael and Alison! The whole house is spotless and very comfortable, the breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice (I even got my bacon well done which i normally struggle with) all served piping hot! Michael and Ali are fantastic hosts and couldn’t do enough for us! will definitely be back!

Alison & Michael were excellent hosts for our weekend away in Torquay. Highly recommend this B+B. It deserves it's 5* status. Great attention to detail in the way the bedroom was presented. Excellent breakfast. Nice homely touches. We really did feel like we were guests. Would love to return in the future. Thank you so much for making the trip so special.

I stayed here for two nights after being very disappointed by the larger hotels in Torquay. The room was excellent. Very spacious and plenty of plug sockets and good WiFi. All decorated very nicely. The breakfast was excellent with good quality produce. Allison and Michael were very welcoming and they made my stay special. Would definitely stay here again if back in Torquay.

Excellent B&B in Torquay!! Allison and Mike were fabulous hosts and made the weekend great fun. The bed was so comfortable and the room had everything you needed - then little extra things you didn't know you needed. Really clean and comfortable and great attention to detail. The breakfast is lovely and cooked by a proper chef. I would definitely recommend it.

Alison & Michael made us so very welcome, nothing was too much trouble, rooms very well presented with some nice touches as well as the essentials. The lounge area with TV & Bar great for an evening in. The breakfasts are exceptional cooked by Michael and delivered by Alison, the company was great would certainly recommend and stay again.

In all honesty I would like to be selfish and keep Kingston House a secret as its so good, but I have to be fair. We were two couples and after driving down from London we received a lovely friendly welcome by Alli & Michael, the whole house is impeccably clean, comfortable, stylish and extremely inviting. Positioned in a great location within walking distance to the station, beachfront and several restaurants. Our room was a good size with plenty of storage, an excellent bed and large windows. The ensuite had a very good size shower and gorgeous white fluffy towels and a range of toiletries/additions to cover every need including a hairdryer. Our room also had a fridge with various drinks and complimentary Twinnings tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and water. There is also a tray hosting a selection of snacks should you feel peckish. A very thoughtful little box of chocolates left by the pillow - a nice touch and very yummy! Also a TV with the addition of Netflix should you wish to watch a late night film. Breakfast time was a delight with a great selection for everyones need and the fresh food was expertly cooked and tasted great. Plenty of tea, coffee and juice which was topped up consistently. When we returned in the evening we made use of the honesty bar in the front lounge which was a wonderful touch especially when you want to continue your evening. Comfortable sofas, a fridge with many varied drinks, an Alexa for music and a TV. Such a great place to stay and enjoy, Ali and Michael definitely deserve their 5 stars. Looking forward to returning
