“Home from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Just returned from our second stay at Kingsholm B and B. Once again June and Carl made us feel really welcome. We chose to return as the location is a sort walk away from the harbour and shops. Excellent when entertaining children! The B and B is spotless and breakfast was lovely-thanks June!! My toddler was made very welcome - it did feel like a real home from home. We are already planning our next visit next year. Highly recommended.

Located just up a slight gradient from the harbour, and a short stroll from all the restraunts,bars and shopping centre. I believe this hotel is real value for money. The propiters, Carl and June are great hosts with the warmest of welcome.
From the lounge to the bedrooms. It is spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast is really good. Cooked by June herself. ****. Upon arrival you get to relax with a pot of fresh tea and buiscit, before going to your room. This was our 2nd visit this year and are planning another shortly.
My wife and i enjoy travelling around, and to sum it up, found the Kingsholm to be a Gem.
You will not be dissapointed. The only downside would be for wheelchairs. Due to the location and few steps, which is beyond the propiters control. Not to say that they would certainly assist you in every way. Full marks to Carl and June. Theyve done the hotel and guests proud.

Room Tip: Front rooms have better views.

There are so many well reviewed B&Bs in Torquay that choosing one is a bit of a lottery.Basing our choice on your reviews we spent four nights here in early April an were not disappointed.On arrival June offered us a pot of tea and Carl carried our cases from the car and parked it for us at the back of the house.
Our back room was a bit small,but it was well decorated and clean,the beds were comfortable and the shower worked well.Breakfasts were well up to standard.

The location is good with easy access to the Harbour,the town and a wide selection of restaurants.The elderly or people with limited mobility might note that the entrance is up several steep steps,as is the rear car park.

We chose this Hotel after reading the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed.
We found an extremely well kept guest house with a lovely couple running it. We received a very warm welcome, had a comfortable room and an excellent breakfast was provided. Carl and June certainly work hard to achieve this high standard and we would recommend their Hotel to anyone.
Teresa and Julian.
