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.
Ian, Lisa and Dylan ...... and next time Indya too!

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.

Just returned from a 5night stay and we are so glad that we chose the Kings Lodge . We were made to feel extremely welcome.Amanda Bryan and daughter Katie are fantastic hosts and Scoobie the dog is simply adorable.We had the 4 poster bedroom which was a good size and overlooked the lovely patio. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and there was plenty of choice. We enjoyed sitting in the bar area in the evenings having a drink after an evening stroll.Amanda and Bryan were great company and had good tips for days out and places to visit. We would love to come back next year and would definitely recommend the Kings Lodge to anyone travelling to Torquay. Hope you all enjoyed your family day out you certainly deserve a break you all work so hard. Thank you .
