“Great stay - couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed April 1, 2011

I have just returned from a great weekend with friends in Torquay. The Kingsholme hotel was perfect, carl and June were the perfect hosts and the hotel was in a great location. Our rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and breakfast was lovely with a great choice. I would not hesitate in booking this hotel again if I return to Torquay. EXCELLENT value for money.

If people are prepared to work this hard to give you a good deal in a hotel, you should take the opportunity. A really friendly small private hotel on the main drag out of Torquay (so other commentators are right - there can be some noise outside the front windows at night if you have the window open) with a husband and wife team who are determined to deliver great customer service in a traditional setting. Breakfast excellent.

The moment we arrived we were offered a welcome pot of tea by Carl and June, Carl also helped carry our luggage to our room. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the bedroom very spacious with a comfortable bed. June and Carl were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast was excellent with a very good choice. The Kingsholm is in a very good location close to the town centre, harbour, restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend a stay at the Kingsholm and we will certainly be staying there again.

Just stayed 6 nights, June & Carl (Hosts) could not have been more welcoming; nothing too much trouble. Rooms cleaned daily; excellent decor; great breakfast and very relaxing. Great location, 5 min walk to the harbour and entertainment. Home from home, and trust me I have been in a few b&b's and this rates right up there, with the special welcome and service offered by June & Carl.
