The Kingsholm Hotel is absolutely spotless, great value for money being only 350 metres from the harbour, the breakfast was superb served up and cooked by very pleasant owners . We will definitely be staying here again the next time we decide to stay in Torquay.

Situated just a short walk from the lively harbour area, Kingsholm offers immaculate and comfortable accommodation decorated to a very high standard. The rooms to the front of the property offer lovely views of a church and the local park. Carl and June make you feel most welcome on arrival and you immediately sense a feeling of warmth and homeliness.... More

Just stayed 8 days in July Carl and June couldn't do more for you, had bedroom overlooking park to the front stunning view, short walk to town. Hosts very knowledgeable about local area. Breakfast just kept flowing as long as you could eat it. Lovely relaxed atmosphere both hosts obviously love what they do well.
