“Brilliant Guest hose”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Stayed at this B&B for a night on the 26th of April. I was drawn to this place after researching dog friendly guest houses on the net and reading some of the grate reviews it had received on Trip advisor. We arrived at the B&B and were welcomed in by Bryan who helped us with are bags etc. The rooms were spacious with good wifi signal and everything you could want was catered for. Amanda Bryan's wife filled us in on all the grate local dog walking locations and where we could find some good places to eat. Both Amanda and Bryan couldn't do enough for you even providing dog towels to dry are dog willow off who enjoyed her stay thoroughly, even making a new mate called scooby who took the form of a cute beagle,they even providing a helpful dog sitting survice so we could pop out in the evening for a meal. Over all a brilliant place to stay you won't b disappointed,and the breakfast was second to none :-)

Your review hugely appreciated. We have endeavoured to ensure that if guests do have a pet dog, everything is available to make them feel that their companion is equally welcomed as we know from our own experience how hard it is to find somewhere suitable. We have also taken this into consideration as part of our cleaning processess to ensure that being dog friendly does not impact on the high standards we strive to achieve. Our pet sitting service allows guests to access attractions and services which would otherwise be unavailable.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your breakfast as we always seek to get everyone's day in Torbay off to a good start.

This is an absolute little gem of a b&b, and this is hugely down to the brilliant family running it as they are so welcoming and couldn't do more for us during our stay. The place itself is also everything you would expect and more; clean, spacious, warm and comfy with a top notch breakfast! We will most definitely be back, FANTASTIC if you have dogs but also great if you don't, they somehow keep all parties whether with dogs, children or on your own 100% happy!! Love the place and the people thank you for such a great weekend away see you again soon! xx

I booked into Kings Lodge as a Birthday present for my wife so we could have a short break in Torquay - including our daughter and dog - it was so hard to find a good, welcoming guest house that was dog friendly so I was really pleased with discovering this little gem! Its in a splendid location just a short walk from Torre Abbey and the Sea Front.
On arrival we were met by Amanda and shown up to our room - we were really pleased - a good size for the three of us and our dog - it was immaculately clean with a good supply of towels and tea and coffee facilities.
The full English breakfast was one of the best I've had in a long time, with local produce and cooked to perfection - our daughter was impressed with the pancakes and chocolate sauce!
Amanda and Bryan as well as their two children Katie and Callum where excellent hosts, nothing was a problem and they really have created a home from home for their guests. Amanda and Bryan's dog Scoobie was a little star and she got on well with our Staffie.
The outside terrace was a lovely spot to have a cool beer or glass of wine at the end of the day and watch the sun set.
There are so many positive comments and remarks we could make about this guest house - if only more of them were run like this - we would highly recommend a stay in Kings Lodge either with your pet or without - its an excellent guest house and one we will definitely be booking again.

Room Tip: Any room is an excellent choice!

Have just returned from a lovely nights stay at the Kings Lodge, I must say it is best place I have stayed the UK for many of years. The welcome was lovely after a drive up, 2 Adults and my 4 year old daughter were made welcome and really enjoyed our stay. The room was great a double bed and a bunk bed, the room was warm and cosy and very clean - on the day of check our Amanda and Bryan were looking on the internet for prices for the Zoo for us and even gave us suggestions to visit during our stay - they sure no the events and area really well. The breakfast was brilliant, cooked fresh and many options - fresh orange and apple juice available and many cereal for the children. Well done Amanda and Bryan keep it up
Ps - and thanks for letting us no where to buy the children leather chair in the bar area

Room Tip: Family rooms excellent

Kings lodge is by far one of the best places to stay in Torquay, owners are Brilliant, on arrival we were greeted by both Amanda and Bryan who were verry welcoming and friendly and had some well needed refreshments at the ready after our long drive down. The rooms were great, verry spacious, clean and catered to our needs (my daughter was provided with a side rail for the bed so she didn't fall out, which was much appreciated and wouldn't have been offered many other places) breakfast was amazing so much choice to choose from which was great for all of us especially the full English prepared by Amanda and has to be one of the best full English we have had in a long time and was all sourced from local produce which made it that bit more special to your average breakfast. On an evening it was nice to be able to chill out in the lounge area with afew drinks from the bar after a long day site seeing and off doing activities, the bar snacks were also a great hit with us, after a full day out and about and having a late lunch due to being full up from breakfast small fresh prepared snacks were fab. Both owners, there children and dog scoobie were great to get along with and made us feel verry welcome. We wouldn't recommend any other place to stay other than Kings Lodge. Defiantly planning our next visit already to Torquay. 5 Stars all round :-)

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
