“Fabulous! Will be back for sure!”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

The rooms were lovely and the entire hotel is spotlessly clean. The beds were really comfortable. June and Carl the owners could not have been more helpful. We were in a party of 9 which can sometimes take a while to check in but at Kingholm this only took a couple of minutes. The hotel could not be in a better location and is close to the town and harbour, Babbacombe Road is quite hilly and thankfully the Kingsholm is near the bottom making it easily accessible for the people in our party who use walking sticks. Breakfast was excellent (particularly the fried bread). Will recommend this hotel to anyone I know. I will be back!

we stayed for three nights and had a fantastic time, June and Carl were great hosts, nothing is too much trouble, the room was very clean, nicely decorated and well stocked with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water. the breakfasts are very good, the hotel is just a short 5 minute walk from the town centre and harbour. we will be definately be staying here again in the not too distant future. (thanks June, Carl and Emma for a great stay, see you soon)

We had a lond weekend break in October. A very warm welcome, with an offer of tea or coffee on arrival. A very friendly family. Nice and clean room. Breakfast was a winner. Owners even had the time to serve a drink in the evening, and have a chat. Will go back again.
