Just returned from another very enjoyable 7 night stay at the Kingsholm. All the usual high standards are fully maintained. From the moment you check in to the moment you leave, you are assured of being looked after by June and Carl who are the perfect hosts for this type of establishment. They are obviously passionate about their business, and... More

Just spent a 5 day break in Torquay with a friend and stayed, as usual, at The Kingsholm. Fantastic time and a fantastic stay in our favourite hotel. June and Carl were as welcoming and friendly as always and this made our break even more relaxing knowing we were taken care of completely. Hope to be back again later in... More

Once again a brilliant stay at the Kingsholm. We come down to Torquay at least once a year and this hotel has never let us down. Close enough to the town and harbour to be convenient and far enough away to be relaxing. Rooms - 10/10, food - 10/10, service 10/10. Carl, June and their daughter are a pleasure to... More

Kingsholme is within easy walking distance of Torquay harbour/restaurants and bars. We found Carl and June really welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. There was a very good varied menu for breakfast which was cooked to perfection. Delicious! We will definitely stay at Kingsholme again.

My wife and enjoyed a very relaxing long weekend break in Torquay. We stayed at the Kingsholm Hotel where we found June and Carl excellent hosts. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was extremely good with a wide choice. Highly recommended place to stay.
