My husband and I stayed here for two nights which was a present from our three lovely daughters booked though argos. The owners were very hospitable and when they found out we were leaving early on our final day they made sure our breakfast was ready, highly recommend just what we wanted from our mini break :-)))))))

My wife and myself had a very pleasant stay at Crown Lodge, excellent service and food! We visited many places including Plymouth, Paignton and Brixham. The hotel is very convenient for visiting a number of country and coastal towns!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on a Wowcher deal. The room was beautifully clean and had the added bonus of a mini fridge. Our breakfasts were delicious and I was very impressed that Earl Grey tea was mentioned on the menu as it's not always available. Check in was really easy and the owner was clearly... More

Cannot fault the service, room or breakfast on our recent stay. The room was very well decorated, clean and had everything you would need. The breakfast was 1st class and all ingredients were of the highest standard.

The atmosfere of this little and warm B&B made my 4 days in Torquay very pleasant. My room was quite, clean and warm. The en-suite was clean and warm as well. The breakfast was very tasty and various, from the full english breakfast to yougurt and fruits. John and Patricia are very lovely, kind and available. Thank you

Just returned from a 2 night weekend break and would certainly recommend and would without doubt return to the Crown Lodge if I was to visit the area again. The location is great, easy to walk into Torquay. There is also Torre station just a few minutes up the road so easy access to other towns around the area. The... More

No frills, just straight forward bed & breakfast. Room was clean, bed lumpy. Bathroom adequate, but breakfast not to my taste. Overall I'd say it's ok. Car parking cramped, good location to catch a bus and explore

We stayed for 3 nights early September. The room was very clean and tidy, but it was very small with not much room to even walk around the bed. Ensuite with shower. Room equipped with a tiny safe, tiny ironing board, iron, hairdryer, small tv/dvd combo and electric fan. Would have liked a radio too. The owners are very nice... More

Dear Nicnoc84, Thank you for your review. With respect to the radio, the alarm clock doubles as a radio. Perhaps not the most intuitive piece of kit, but the instructions are in the room information pack. We are sorry you were disturbed while sleeping in after breakfast, but were unaware you were keeping such late nights and wanted to use... More
