Carl & June run a very friendly hotel, spotless with lovely rooms.The location is very good for the seafront , shops and restaurants etc. The hotel is small, but that made it very welcoming. The breakfast are very nice as well. We will be staying again, fantastic

My daughter and I stayed at the Kingsholm for a one night break in Torquay. This is a small, family run place and the owners were very welcoming and helpful, recommending restaurants close by. We chose an Italian one just down from the hotel, on the same side - well worth a visit! Breakfast was plenty and well cooked. Overall a very comfortable, well-located hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January, we were both thoroughly pleased with our entire stay at the Kingsholm, the hosts very friendly & helpful, our room was very clean & comfortable, slept great both nights. The service at breakfast was spot on with a great choice food, hot breakfast is cooked to order so you can pick and choose exactly what you have. It is situated just a couple of minutes walk away to all the bars and restaurants, an ideal base to explore torquay and devon. Will without doubt be returning on our next visit to the area.

Absolutely loved our stay at Kingsholm! The owners, June and Carl were really friendly and welcoming and the room we had was absolutely lovely :) The whole place was spotlessly clean-which is a big must for me!! All in all a great B&B for a relaxing break, very close to town and spot on breakfasts!! Highly recommended! A********
