Yet another fab stay at the kingsholm. This time we took friends who really enjoyed it too. This was our 3rd visit and we would thoroughly recommend it. Great breakfast, lovely clean rooms. June and Carl are great hosts and we look forward to next time.

Definately will be going back, it's impressive enough to go back with a loved one and be confident they'll be impressed! Great breakfast, very friendly service the only reason I'd hesitate to recommend it is that I dont want it too booked for me to book a return visit!

We stayed for a week last November for my birthday, the hotel is absolutely brilliant and both June and Carl are two of the nicest host we've ever had. (always willing to go the extra mile) the location of the place is also great, a two min walk from the harbour. All in all I would recommend to anyone.
