Stayed at the Kingsholm for four nights on a business trip to the south west. It was perfectly located for my stay and for the town centre which is barely a five minute walk away. Rooms were clean, food was great and the free parking and wi-fi was invaluable.

Always stay at the Kingsholm when down in Devon on business. Rooms are spotlessly clean, the owners Carl and June are great and there's no complaints from me about the breakfast - always get well looked after!
Ideal location for the pubs and local restaurants and great to find such a friendly West Yorkshire welcome so far from home...

me and my wife stayed at the kingsholm for a three night break in early march 2013, our room was very clean and comfortable, june and carl the owners were very helpful and welcoming, the brakfast was very good, the B&B is perfectly situated a five minute walk into town close to all local restaraunts and pubs, an all round great, and great value B&B
if you go you must try the old vienna restaruant only five minutes up the road and one of the best meals i have had in a long time, make sure you book

Beautifully clean, lovely hosts, yummy breakfast, perfect location for going into the town centre and the harbour area and off road parking only a short distance from the hotel - go there, you wont be disappointed. Only had an overnight stay but would now definitely consider going there for longer.

Just returned from a three night break at the Kingsholm and had a great time. The current owners, June and Carl, have got it absolutely right. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is plentiful and the hosts are welcoming. The location is great, just a short walk to the harbour, and there are a number of restaurants close bye. Would highly recommend and will definitely return.
