“Brilliant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Stayed at the Kingsholm at the beginning of November for the weekend, must say we had a brilliant time. The center of Torquay is just a five minute walk away with plenty of pubs and restaurants and other things to do. Carl and June make the stay a total pleasure with a great breakfast .Will definately be going again

We have stayed at the Kingsholm on a number of occasions and will definitely be returning again soon. The rooms are extremely clean the breakfast is excellent and its only a few minutes walk from the centre of Torquay. Carl and June are great hosts, always really welcoming and friendly. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed in Room 9, although a bit on the compact side it was clean and had an extremely cofortable bed. We only stayed one night for a concert at Princess theatre which was a ten minute walk away. The owners were freindly and attentative and the breakfast in the morning was the best we have had in a long while .

After the 4th visit this year we didnt think it could get any better but Carl and June are always striving to make improvements to make our stay better than the time before.
Another great stay and will be revisiting in Feb 2013.

Had a wonderful break in Torquay and June and Carl made us all welcome. Fantastic breakfast to start the day and nice that there was a bar too. Relaxing drink before going elsewhere in the evening. Within easy reach of beach, bars, restaurants and shops. Rooms were clean and tidy. Looking forward to going again in 2013.
