Very friendly and helpful staff,nice place for a relaxing break would go back
The room was very clean. Very friendly, excellent food, excellent location.
The bed was extremely hard.
Good location near to town and sea front. Comfortable and clean room. Great breakfasts. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay.
everything from our check in to the room and breakfast was all fantastic. They couldn't do enough for us.
staff friendly but not intrusive, excellent breakfast (scrambled eggs to die for), spacious en suite, immaculately clean, would recommend to anyone and is number one choice should we return to Torquay
road noise (we needed the windows open as it was warm), sash windows rattled when windy
The moment we arrived we had a very warm welcome. The hotel is just outside the centre and very beautiful the hosts June and Carl are very welcoming, I would recommend staying to anyone give them a try you will not be disappointed Nice one June and Carl
this hotel is in a great position it is only a short walk to the town On the way down there are lots of places to eat The hotel is great
There is nothing not tolike
the breakfast was excellent, the bed was comfortable, the location was brilliant and the staff were fantastic,very welcoming, we felt very comfortable, and the price is very very good!!!
Our stay was for four nights in the Kings rm.. My husband and i felt welcomed... therefore we felt comfortable enough to enjoy our complete time at Kingsholm... Love the name.. Consistant good quaility free breakfast/service was the silver linning.. Sets you up all day! Free wifi.. Great family business.. Loved to see a holy bible available in bedside table draw. Liked what they have created.. A lovely welcoming family service.. Very good value for money.. This contributes towards the decision to return.. Hope standard continues... Its got our vote! GOD bless and keep them and thank you. xx
Small fridge in room.. Wifi connection at night? Fairly clean on the surface.. but inside shower, ens.floor, and tv remote could have more attention.. However this was not a major issue as we tend to clean before use anyway.
The location is close to the town centre and the sea front. Very clean and excellent breakfasts.
Shower was sometime not very hot.
First of all I'd like to say that I'm not the least surprised that this hotel has been rated as 6th best in Torquay! First impressions certainly last and from the moment you enter this scrupulously clean hotel you can clearly see that the owners set their standards very high. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we entered the building and the decor throughout the hotel was calming and tasteful; I loved it. The room was bright and airy with everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. We had room 10, which had the most enormous bed (albeit twins which fitted together seamlessly) Breakfast was served between 8:30 - 9:15 am and offered everything from prunes to full English. (All buffet, room items were quality branded) What I really liked about the breakfast, was that you could choose as much or as little as you fancied. The cooked option was presented beautifully, always hot and accompanied with fresh coffee was excellent. The location of the hotel was fantastic for the harbor, restaurants and shops. We had a wonderful stay, many thanks for your friendly yet professional hospitality, can't wait for our next visit!
Minor outside noise on Friday night
Great location, fab hosts and very clean. A B&B giving excellent value for money.
Everything hosts June and Carl were helpful all through our 5 night stay
No faults at all
cleanliness, breakfast and value for money. Location was also very good. Faultless
everything was great, spotless, good breakfast, location perfect, Carl and June a great couple nothing too much trouble for them, and free parking a big plus. we'll be going back soon I hope.
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.
