We recently had the pleasure to stay at the Kingsholm guest house. Carl and June were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room (a twin room) was tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. We would definitely recommend this guest house, which is conveniently located, close to Torquay Harbour and within easy walking distance to lots of bars,... More

Breakfast was made fresh to order and was well tasty and set us up for the day perfectly. Thank you Carl and June.... More

Great location, did not use the car for whole week as close to centre and bus or ferry rides regular. Excellent breakfast with plenty of coffee, my perfect start to the day. Room spotless and, if required, serviced daily

A very friendly hotel with a homely feel, an incredible breakfast cooked to order with premium ingredients and nothing was too much trouble for Carl and June. Fantastic location for Torquay harbour and town centre 10 out of 10 for location, cleanliness, welcome, breakfast and the entire stay. Thank you very much and we will return Ian and isabella

The guest house is spotless and clean and nothing is too much bother as soon as you walk in through the door you... More

The hotel is superb. Everything was perfect. Could not fault the welcome (Carl and June were really lovely hosts), the cleanliness, the amenities. Also a wonderful cooked breakfast which we really looked forward to every morning (I did the excellent brekkie dance one morning which rather embarrassingly was witnessed by Carl and June!!) Kingsholm is a ten minute walk from... More
