best b and b in torquay, cant praise it enough, excellence comes as standard. cant wait to stay there again next spring. only downside for some guests would be the steep steps at the front, there is limited parking at the rear but lots of paid parking space on the main road.

Had a great 3 night stay at the kingsholm, very friendly and clean😀. The room we had was warm and comfy just what you need after a long day in a couple of the local drinking establishments😜. Breakfast was a lovely experience one of the best full English I've had!! Highly recommended you will enjoy your stay!

We came to Torquay for a relaxing weekend and chose Kingsholme for the excellent reviews. We were not disappointed! Carl and June are the perfect hosts and made us feel so welcome from the minute we checked in. A beautiful building and decorated to a very high standard. The lounge area is stunning and welcoming. Our room was spotlessly clean... More

Once again I have had the pleasure of staying at the Kingsholm. An excellent place to stay. Can't fault The Kingsholm in any way, the rooms are perfect, the breakfast is plentiful, and is cooked and served to a very high standard. The location is brilliant, just a short walk to the main hub of Torquay. Nothing is too much... More

The room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and warm, June and Carl were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. An excellent breakfast with lots of choices. The hotel is situated close to the town, harbour and all amenities. Plenty of good eateries within 5 minutes walk. Didn't find any problems at all.

Lovely hotel. Carl and June were brilliant hosts. Couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were clean, well decorated & well furnished. Beds comfy. Freshly cooked full english breakfast was brilliant. Kept you going up until teatime. Location was 500 m from the harbour. Close enough, but far enough away to be quiet at night at kicking out time. Plenty of... More

Great place to stay and very close to all the amenities? Our room was lovely and clean and an added bonus is the full English breakfast which was freshly cooked and delicious. It was a two minute walk to the harbour with it's many restaurants and pubs and for anyone wanting bus travel.
