Stayed four nights at the hotel, a lovely place to unwind. Spotlessly clean comfortable surroundings and really good food couple with really nice staff made for a great break. Our room 104 was a bit small and the bed very uncomfortable but nicely done out and sufficient for us. Car parking is an issue only limited spaces and the alternative... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for a 2 night stop-over en route to deepest Cornwall. The hotel is located right on the seafront and within walking distance of the delightful little town. The staff were lovely (all of them!), and there were a lot of nice cheerful guests (for a change). The restaurant was nicely appointed and served... More

Having just returned from a weeks stay at the Kingswood I cannot speak highly enough of the staff there. Their level of customer service and attention to detail is a rare thing these days. Steve,the restaurant manager is always cheerful. He treats each guest as if it is the most important thing for them to be comfortable and happy and... More

Bed was comfy, shower was ok but again small. Staff were pleasant and helpful and breakfast was average - only half a thin slice of black pudding!! Lots going on around with... More

Every aspect of our visit was catered for from our arrival to departure. Nothing was too much trouble as Staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They were courteous, attentive to our needs and obviously enjoyed their work. This is not our first visit but the quality of service has never wavered.

The two of us were booked into this hotel for a wedding party. The welcome was friendly, the hotel was clean throughout, and the service and food were of a high standard. The en suite bathroom was a tad small, but this is a small niggle compared with the overall high standards. This is probably the nicest hotel we have... More

We stayed here on our way home from Cornwall. Our room was clean and bright with a balcony and a spectacular sea view. We received a warm welcome and throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is family owned and run, reflected in the attention to detail and hospitality. It is well maintained and has kept... More

Additional single bed also available if required. I would ask the management to please replace the mattress in double bed which I think is passed its sell... More
