Good location but can be noisy

We had front facing room, that probably had one of the best views from the hotel, but was also one possibly one of the noisiest. The hotel is on a main noisy road from early in the morning - it also is the way home for many of the clubbers, and that's all week, not just a weekend. However the room is spacious and clean, and the owners are friendly and helpful. The decor could probably do with an update in the not too distant future. Read more

We cannot reccommend Kingsholm enough. We stayed for just the 1 night, but will definitely go back for a longer stay. Carl & June were extremely friendly, and nothing seemed too much. The room was ideal size, beds comfy, en suite bathroom very clean. Breakfast was very nice, cereals, juices & fruit as well as a good choice for cooked breakfast. We were also able to leave luggage after checkout whilst we went for one last walk, and a taxi was arranged for us back to station. Read more

A lovely trip that was made even better by having such a nice place to stay.

We travelled down from North Devon to see a show&stayed one night. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived&our room was lovely. The friendliness we were met with made us feel very relaxed. We were only a stones throw away from the high street which was particulary nice as we were on foot.
Something we were both particulary pleased with& grateful for(apart from the scrambled egg)was being able to leave our luggage after checking out to pick up later so we could explore the town. Read more

The guest house is very conveniently located, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The room was well equipped and very comfortable. I will look forward to staying here again! Read more

Charming Young Host Couple, Lovely Room, Close to Scenic Waterfront

We were lucky enough to find a parking place behind the building, and we received a very cordial welcome even though we were a tad early. Our room was impeccable -- spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The ensuite bathroom was also spotless, and the delicious made-to-order breakfast met our expectations. Our cordial hosts were very helpful when we needed to look up something on their computer, and it was a pleasure to meet their affable father as well. We would love to stay there again! Read more

Likes?
The Kingsholm's character, location, and ambiance matched what we wanted to find in Torquay -- in other words, the hotel lived up to the expectations created by its online marketing presentation.
Dislikes?
This is my failing, since they clearly state that the property is rather vertical, but we are both pushing 70 and in hindsight I see that I should have requested a room on the lowest floor available.

I had a great break at Kingsholm

I would recommened this hotel again and again, it is so close to the town but not so close that its nosie. The staff are friendly and can recommend different places to visit while being away. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very homely. The guest house is only 2 minute walk away from the harbour. Read more

Likes?
I liked that you feel welcome from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed. It is a homely guest house, its close to many different places to eat in an evening.
Dislikes?
The only thing I disliked about the hotel was that I didnt book in for long enough.

Loved it, loved it, loved it!

I booked 3 nights as a surprise short break for my new fiancée. On arrival she said she loved it as the place looked lovely inside & out, the room was really clean and that it was well-stocked with little extras such as tea, coffee, bottles of water, bars of soap, etc. We were both really impressed with the friendliness of the owners and the quality of the service! The breakfast was amazing and well worth dragging ourselves out of the irresistibly comfy bed for! We didn't want to leave! Read more

Likes?
The B&B is situated just up the road from Beacon Quay at the harbour, which was perfect for us. We were also able to book an extra night at short notice. We loved pretty much everything!
Dislikes?
Nothing! It was perfect for our little romantic getaway!
