5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The attention to detail with the food, service and room facilities was way beyond our expectations. We look forward to staying with June and Carl again very soon.

All together great value and a great experience. Carl & June did all they could to please & were the perfect hosts. The location is ideal, we did not need to use the car all the time we were there. We definitely recommend.

Stopped for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Kingsholm. What better way to start the day than to have a top breakfast before heading out to for the day. Carl and June are the perfect hosts and clearly pride themselves on offering a flawless ' home from home' for all their visitors.....and what's more, it's quiet, yet only a short walk from all the amenities and tourist trapping's Torquay offers.

Room Tip: As a solo travellers had room number 6 at the back on the second floor, suited me fine.Didnt see a l...

A really lovely bed and breakfast. We were offered and gladly accepted a fresh pot of tea on arrival in the beautiful guest lounge. The bedroom was spacious, clean and well presented with a modern en suite. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The guest house is a short stroll to the harbour which offers plenty of eating establishments and nightlife. Carl and June could not have been more welcoming and helpful - a really nice friendly couple! We will definately stay here again.
