We found Kingsholme to be spot on. Room 10 is very spacious and extremely well presented. Our hosts Carl and June were very welcoming and could not have done more to enhance our stay. Free car parking, excellent service, a good hearty breakfast and only a few minutes walk to the harbour. What more can we say. Would we recommend?...

Excellent hotel in all aspects. Carl and June, the owners are really helpful when you need somewhere to eat or visit. Nothing is too much trouble. Everywhere is clean and the rooms have everything you need with lots of storage and comfortable beds. Breakfast is delicious with lots of choice. We had a lovely stay.

Excellent hotel and very nice hosts. Carl and June made us feel very welcome. The location of the hotel is ideal for the harbour and all bus and boat routes to surrounding areas. Breakfast was excellent with good choice and freshly cooked, Room was very clean and tidy with a modern on-suite. I would recommend this hotel.

Our room was perfect with all requirements for the stay and daily top ups of essentials, tea, coffee etc. The king size bed was so so comfortable some mornings we struggled to get up...
