“Another excellent stay at the Kingsholm !”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

My second stay at the kingsholm and this time I took my 80 year old mother with me.Carl and June made us all feel welcome as usual, nothing was to much trouble for them, they put themselves out to accommodate my mother and us.What ever you need in a guesthouse, the kingsholm as got it, cleanliness, always on going updating the guest house, the food was five star Michelin rating cooked by June herself and front of house Carl was the perfect host at breakfast. The location of the guesthouse was perfect for all our nneeds . It's a five star rating guesthouse. We all enjoyed our stay very much.So a big thank you to June and Carl.Keep up the good work !xxx

Came down to Torquay to visit friends and stayed 3 nights at the Kingsholm. Could not fault the place, the hosts are 2 very lovely people who cannot do enough for you. The overall look and style of the hotel is bang up to date, nothing was shabby or tired looking. The breakfast was excellent and service was brilliant. The hotel is in a great place just moments away from the main hub of Torquay. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Kingsholm Hotel.

Very friendly and welcoming with an excellent full english! June and Carl were really good hosts from start to finish of my four day break! Torquay is an interesting seaside town with loads to do and see and is central to all other places on the coast with a good local bus service a five minute walk away from the Hotel, Would definitely go again..

First time in Torquay and we really enjoyed it , Great breakfast with plenty of choice, Carl was always around ready to top up the tea and coffee. Good size room with a good sized bed, mattress a little un-comfy for me but that's not the owners fault (suppose you get used to your own bed).Excellent location to the harbour & local amenities some nice bars around the quay with nice food available, took a ferry to Brixham £2 return. when we return to Torquay we would look for the Kingsholm.

We stayed here for four nights in room no4. The room was perfect spacious,clean and with a large bathroom. The whole hotel is well decorated throughout and is perfectly situated only a 5 minute walk to marina , many restaurants and bars. The owners June and Carl were very welcoming,friendly and helpful. There was a good choice for breakfast with cereals,fruit etc and a cooked breakfast with a good choice of hot food. Carl was always on hand also with a top up with coffee or tea at the breakfast table.
If we were to return to Torquay we would certainly stay in the Kingsholm again.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was no4 which was situated on the front of the hotel on the 1st floor.
