Score from 356 reviews Good
Welcoming hosts, cosy room, value for money, central, convenient location. Iinen tablecloth appreciated. Good selection for breakfast accompanied by efficient & quick service by host. Quality hairdryer was appreciated. Grateful for assistance with luggage.
Would have liked to have coffee cream as an option at breakfast (Although didn't ask if this could be made available). A heated towel rail would have been a useful addition as towels used after morning shower were still damp in the evening.
Owners were friendly and polite, and the rooms were nice and clean.The Kingsholm is in a good location.
Cant really say anything bad about it, the only thing and this was my fault was that we were put 2nd floor, and I have quite bad legs, so the climb up and down every day was quite uncomfortable as there wasent a lift, so If anyone has any problem walking just keep this in mind .
Lovely people, really comfortable bed and soft sheets, great breakfast, bathroom well equipped, wifi good throughout and a very comfortable and welcoming living room. Would definitely stay again!
Be nice if breakfast was served earlier although I'm sure they would have offered if I had asked!
Very clean rooms and great breakfast. Would highly recommend.
Everything was perfect, spotless, stylish hotel with perfect hosts, breakfast cooked to order just as you like.
Nothing not to like, the Hotel is faultless, as good as top hotels anywhere.

Really great find. I highly recommend the Kingsholm. Carl and June are very welcoming and helpful. Hotel spotlessly clean. Superb cooked breakfasts. Had a fab few days here and will be coming back. Thankyou.
Wifi was shockingly slow and sometimes did not work and delayed my departure by 4 hours trying to get things done. Incredible what a difference proper wifi can make a difference to your stay and ongoing journey.
Free parking,free wi-fi,close to water front,awesome breakfast,great hosts.
Close to Torquay
Felt like colditz
Great personal friendly service. The fudge on the welcome tray was a nice touch-seems trivial but regular travellers will understand, good water pressure and temperature on the showers.
Having to go home!
location breakfast bed owners
noise from main torquay to babbacombe road awful and walk from hotel to fetch car 100yds up cardiac hill my wife is asthmatic and i am recovering from a spine operation really hurt climbing hill not happy but ok
Rather too many steps and stairs !
June and Carl work hard to ensure that everything is just right. The room, though small, was updated and very attractive. Tea and cookies served upon arrival. Breakfast was well-organized and presented! Carl carried our luggage up to our room when we arrived and down to our car when we left. They were helpful with directions.
Parking was off-site, and an up-hill block away. The walk to the town center was down steep steps and then down a steep hill -- hard for the return trip!
Staff at Kingsholm were excellent very helpful and friendly. The property was spotlessly clean.Breakfast was excellent.With plenty of choice. This was freshly cooked when you ordered it. Kingsholm is only 5 minutes walk from Torquay Harbour and town. It also has good parking facilities off site.
Everything at this small hotel was excellent. Carl and his wife could not have been more help from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. The food was lovely and plentiful, if you are thinking of going to Torquay I would definitely recommend the Kingsholm.
Immaculate throughout! Very impressed with decor being modern bit also traditional and a warm homely feeling to the whole place.
Charming hosts- nothing was too much trouble, and a really lovely hotel. Delicious breakfasts with lots of choice. Close to the marina, and just a 5 minute walk from many attractions, shops and restaurants.Excellent free car park and free wifi. Highly recommended!
Lovely welcome from June who insisted on carrying our case upstairs. Tea and biscuits ready for us in the beautiful lounge when we had unpacked. Very nice room and shower room. Great breakfast served by Carl who was very informative about the area.

Noise from traffic.
Attentive staff. Tasteful decor. Delicious breakfast.
June and Carl were excellent hosts and made us feel at home for our whole stay. Unfortunately the weather was not as we would have liked, but this was nothing to do with our stay. The breakfasts were outstanding and we highly recommend the Kingsholm. The added bonus was a free car park at the property.
Hotel was lovely and clean. The breakfast was brilliant and the hosts were very freindly and welcoming.
