This was our third stay at the Kingsholm and we will continue to be returning guests. June and Carl obviously pride themselves on offering a fantastic home from home for their guests. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and the rooms (we've stayed in 1,2 and 7) are all comfortable and pleasantly decorated. The breakfast is always a welcoming feast, with plenty of choice. June and Carl are fantastic hosts and it's always a real pleasure to spend time at the Kingsholm which is ideally located for any visit to Torquay or to use as a base to visit other nearby towns such as Paignton,Brixham and Dartmouth!!

What a wonderful place to stay! Warm welcome from June and Carl who cannot do enough to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and that cooked breakfast - spot on!
We will definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Next time we stay, we would like a front room with a better view if possible.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Kingsholm and shall be eagerly awaiting next seasons football fixtures to give me an excuse for another visit. We travelled as 2 couples and had rooms 4 and 8 and found that both were nicely decorated, had tea/coffee/hot chocolate tray, t.v. and were spotlessly clean. The breakfast really set us up for the day and you really couldn't find a better location in Torquay for the shops, restaurants or harbour. We only met June briefly as we checked in, as she must be busy orchestrating behind the scenes but Carl was the perfect host, very attentive and helpful with our enquiries.
