“wonderful relaxing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

My sister and I stayed at the Kingsholm for a week in the middle of August. We drove and were able to park easily in a carpark at the top of Museum Road, just a short walk down the hill leads you into the back of Kingsholm. We were met by Carl who runs Kingsholm with his wife June and their family. June and Carl are very friendly and make you feel really at home. Our room was clean and very comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful. We were able to explore the area in the day time knowing that we could pop back to our room when ever we needed for a comfortable rest. We will reccomend the Kingsholm to family and friends. We had a wonderful break.

Stayed here for 4 nights over Bank Holiday. Carl & June were perfect hosts. The rooms were clean and comfy. The breakfast was excellent. Their children adorable. Can't fault it in any way. We would definitely come back here and would recommend it to anyone. Well done Carl & June you've done a grand job !!!!!!

Clean, modern & well maintained. We stayed for two nights over August Bank Holiday. Location is perfect; easy walking distance to harbour, attractions & town centre but far enough away from the clubs and bars so they're not intrusive. Parking pass was provided for a barriered car-park just up museum road, about 2 mins walk from hotel rear-entrance. June and Carl both warm and welcoming. Breakfast very nice. What's not to like!

Breakfast was excellent, it really set us up for the day. The hotel was clean and the decor modern and well presented. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners , even when we arrived far too early to check in, they took our luggage and showed us where to park so we could have some time to walk around. the room was cleaned every day and tea, coffee, hot chocolate fresh bottles of water replaced .we felt very relaxed while staying there and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: we had room 4 at the front there is some low level infrequent traffic noise, so a back room would be...

We had 4 nights in this guest house and would certainly consider booking again if we come back to Torquay.
Breakfast included a comprehensive choice of cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruit and yoghurt plus a traditionally cooked breakfast. We cannot fault the quality of food or service.
The hotel was spotless and very comfortable but one small point of note was the black mould around the tiles beneath the shower. Hardly a problem though!
Overall, a well kept and well run hotel.
Keep up the good work Carl and June.
