Reviewed 29 November 2013

Recently spent a one night stay here and I can't think of one bad thing to say about the place. It's run by a lovely couple, June and Carl, who've worked wonders on the place over the last three years since they've been in residence. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Every room is very tastefully decorated and my bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and served in the attractive dining room. Nothing was too much trouble. Endless tea and coffee fill ups. The rest of the gang of us from the Sheffield, who were staying there that night, were able to gather in the pleasant comfortable lounge area and enjoy a drink from the bar. Highly recommend the place. Hopefully, I'll be staying there again, next November!

A group of us stayed for one night and we found our hosts most welcoming, the hotel spotlessly clean and breakfast was excellent. We would certainly return on future occasions and would recommend Kingsholm unreservedly.

Spent 3 nights at the hotel. June and Carl were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is spotless and we could not fault anything. The breakfast was outstanding and always fresh and hot. Ideal location and free parking, which is an asset in Torquay. Please don't change what you do, truly outstanding. Would not stay anywhere else if visiting the area again.

The Kingsholm is an excellent hotel, June and Carl are very welcoming! I have now stayed twice this year and already booked to go back next year! The rooms are very comfortable, they deliver a high standard of cleanliness, and the breakfast is delicious. I would highly recommend a stay at the Kingsholm to to both family and friends. Looking forward to my return next year. :-)

Have just spent a short 3 day mid-week break at the Kingsholm. June and Carl were fantastic hosts and I was made to feel very welcome.

The room was very comfortable and the great breakfast meant that I was ready for the day ahead.

I wouldn't hesitate to come back again and indeed to recommended it to any of my friends.

3 members of my family stayed at the Kingsholm in Torquay and we were made to feel very welcome by June and Carl. The room was spotless and breakfast was plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure that ALL guests were happy. June and Carl went out of their way to make us feel extremely welcome by offering a complimentary pot of tea on arrival and showing us to our rooms. They went out of their way to offer a real personal approach and it felt like we were family staying at their home instead of paid guests. Would definitely recommend to all my friends and family.
