“Very, very nice. Would definitely stay again!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We have today just got back from a lovely 3 night break away in Torquay and having a lovely place to stay topped it off wonderfully. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by Steve and Nicola with a lovely cup of tea. They were extremely friendly throughout the whole of our stay but without being intrusive.
We stayed in room 2, spotlessly clean, bright and airy. They had even catered for the fact that we had very hot weather and provided a fan in the room in case it got too hot which we thought was a nice touch.
Breakfast was served at a very reasonable time. We couldn't fault the food. We did a lot of walking along the coastal path throughout our stay and the Full English breakfast was ample and lasted us the whole day until teatime! Gorgeous sausages!
We are definitely planning another trip to Torquay and the first place we will call will be Steve and Nicola!!
Thank you to both of you for making us feel very welcome in your lovely home and we hope to see you again some time!!

This was our second visit to the lodge, the first time I was pregnant, this time with our daughter. What can I say but we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the breakfast absolutely delicious and the service delightful. Wonderful comfortable beds, a home from home. Thank you to the hosts for a wonderful stay and look forward to returning again next year.

Dear Maria,

Really lovely to catch up with you, mum and of course your little one again after 2 years, what a sweetie she is and how beautifully behaved. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon and watching her grow up. regards Nicola and Steve.

I chose this accommodation based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. First time for us in Torquay, we were made very welcome by the owners Nicky and Steve. We were advised on places to visit and things to do. Room was spacious clean and light with a lovely view overlooking the park (room number 1). Nice choice of breakfast, great location, just a stroll through Torre Abbey which leads to the sea front, harbour, many restaurants and shops. We had a lovely stay and would definately return to Buckingham Lodge.

Nicky and Steve are a great couple and we were greeted with a welcoming cuppa on our arrival. Our case was whipped up to our very comfy spotless room and our few days away were off to a great start. It is in a nice location with a couple of handy bus stops just a few yards away to whisk you into town. Though an amble through the Abbey gardens and along the front is a pleasant alternative way to get there too. After a good nights sleep in a nice comfortable bed, you get your day off to a good start with a very nice breakfast. If you have a "Good places to Stay book" you have to put this one in it.

Everything was just perfect at Buckingham Lodge from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Nicky and Steve were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were spotless and breakfast choices excellent, could not have wished for anywhere better to stay. Situated in a good location with car parking and bus stops just outside. Nice walk through Torre Abbey Gardens along the front to harbour and shops. Will definately return if in the area again.

I've been visiting Torquay for 35 years, and have stayed at more hotels than I care to remember, but this one will take some beating. A great location, away from the busy centre, but still within an easy stroll, through the Abbey grounds and along the seafront. Spotlessly clean rooms, and you can expect a very warm welcome from Nicola and Steve. A breakfast to banish all thoughts of eating again at lunchtime,( you must try the homemade marmalade ). With plenty of parking spots available, a bus stop nearby, you've got everything you need for a great stay. A big thumbs up from us !!

Nicky and Steve always go the extra mile to ensure that everything is just right for your stay. They even got our favourite wine in for us. The rooms and public areas are always absolutely spotlessly clean. It rained on Friday but they were very happy for us to sit in the lounge all morning, providing us with tea and coffee too. We've already booked for next year! It's very handy for the Riviera Centre.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a large bright room which can be either twin or king size. Room 6 has a fridge in it.
