This is a fantastic, clean and comfortable hotel which is just a short walk from shops, bars and restaurants.
The breakfast is amazing!
June and Carl are great hosts.
I will definitely stay here again.

We booked for a weekend break based on the reviews and weren't disappointed.
Carl and June were very helpful in getting our room ready and letting us check in early so we could get to a show in the Princess Theatre for 2 pm.
Very comfortable room at the front of the hotel with a view across a park. It is on a main road but that didn't disturb our sleep too much.
Great location, just a few minutes walk down into Torquay.
Good and plentiful breakfast.
We will certainly stay next time we're in Torquay.

Such a conveniently located guest house. The proprietors we so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The Kingsholm is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and I will definately look to stay here again.
