We were given a very warm welcome from Carl & June, the hotel is stylish, spotlessly clean and a great location, just a stones throw from the harbour, ideal for sightseeing Torquay & surrounding areas,...

Arrived home today from our break at The Kingsholm. Had a fantastic time. Perfect location for exploring the area and only a 5 minute walk from the harbour. Excellent breakfast, excellent hosting and spotlessly clean house. Will return but hope to stay longer next time. Thank u June and Carl x
