Reviewed 20 October 2013

Nicola & Steve gave our large family gathering for a party in Torquay excellent accommodation close to the venue and a short walk to the Riviera and Torre Abbey. They were good fun, gave us an excellent breakfast and we will definitely return if back in Torquay. The rooms were spotless, comfortable beds - very cosy.

Derek, thank you for submitting a review, it was lovely to meet you and your family for your group gathering at our B&B. It was a great relaxing weekend for us too as you were all such good company, not like working at all! See you again hopefully. Take care.

The other five-star reviews have said it over and over so I can be brief. It is a lovely place to stay, the room and the bed were both large and comfortable, the cooked breakfast is superb and we had a most enjoyable time there. Steve and Nicol;a welcomed us and went out of their way to make things easy. By the end of the weekend I felt we knew them quite well and they were interested in us too. If we want to go to Torquay again then that is where we will stay.

Another lovely weekend break in the Buckingham Lodge. We were there with six other family members, ranging from teens to grandparents...we were all so well looked after by our lovely hosts, Nicola and Steve. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are roomy and the breakfasts are tasty. They even have a well stocked bar. The location is great....just a short stroll down to the seafront through the abbey gardens. We had two lovely days out to Shaldon and Dartmouth, both within a short drive of the guesthouse. Nicola and Steve had endless ideas regarding places to eat and things to do. We'll be staying again soon I'm sure.

Room Tip: The two interconnecting rooms are great for families and come with a small kitchen area with kettle...

We recently spent a weekend at the Buckingham Lodge with extended family and we all had a wonderful time.
The owners, Nicola and Steve, were very welcoming and helpful offering good advice on where to visit and suggestions for restaurants. Nicola also cooks an excellent full English (lots of other choices on offer as well) - the breakfast set us all up for the day.
The rooms were lovely, very clean and the beds were really comfortable.
We'll definitely be back!

Nicola and Steve were very welcoming and made us feel very at home. The room was very clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious with a wide choice on offer of both cooked and continental. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve and Nicola and the location of their B&B was 5 mins away from the seafront and 10 mins from the harbour - brilliant!

We were badly in need of a break and this was just what we needed, a friendly welcome with a comfortable ensuite room. I had arrived with a bad back but not only did Steve see to the bags but the bed did wonders and we left a very relaxed and happy couple. Nicola's breakfast had such a choice and very accommodating to individual tastes. We enjoyed our morning conversations too! Also the location was perfect for walking through the Abbey Gardens down to Torquay where there was so much to do and excellent venues for dining. Nothing was too much trouble in fact Nicola and Steve went out of their way to make sure our stay was an excellent experience. -Thank you.

Nicola and Steve were very welcoming to me and my daughters, we had the suite which was well equipped with a kitchenette, two separate rooms each with en suite which were immaculate. Good cooked breakfasts each morning started our day which were served promptly, have to say their sausages are devine. Would definitely recommend staying and would definitely stay here again. Many thanks Sue and daughters.
