Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Kingsholme and yet again loved every minute. June and Carl are an amazing couple and their daughter Lexi is the best toast carrier. We cannot recommend the Kingsholme enough. Great place run by a great couple. Can't wait till the next visit. Thanks again for everything.

Had a 3 night stay at the Kingsholm to coincide with my birthday. Cannot fault anything at all about our stay. The location is excellent, with only a short walk to the harbour, local buses and train station. The hosts Karl and June are wonderful people and make your visit enjoyable from the time you walk in the door. Nothing... More
