We had lunch at The kings Arms on Monday the 11th of August. We have eaten here before, both times the food and service have been excellent. Would reccomend you try it. We have not stayed here, but they do have 11 bedrooms, to stay in.

We come by go show and fortunately we got a room. It is the last room available that night. The manager and staff were very friendly. The hotel building was antique, it was built in 1650. Our room was in the corner of second floor. The wooden flor room was spacious, clean and well equipped.

Stayed here as a family in the family room and couldn't fault anything - room was comfortable and clean, we had dinner there one night and the food was really good, great atmosphere in the bar with some live music playing and the staff really friendly. Will be coming back !

Abergavenny is progressing neatly up the cool-country-town ladder, and this pub/hotel is one reason. Nicely kept beer (inc local breweries), v professional (and friendly) staff, very cool slate-and-reclaimed-wood bar, really excellent food (and not Hereford/Powys sized portions, thankfully). Went there once for Sunday lunch and were accidentally overcharged -- though the food was so good we didn't notice it --... More

I was struck by the excellent menu and the very pleasant staff. I had a ham and cheese omelette and my wife had welsh rarebit (cliche). The building is OLD and a very interesting place. So, food was good, enhanced by the staff and surroundings.

The Kings Arms has incredibly friendly and helpful staff. We visited in July and it was very hot. We were 'upgraded' to the attic, which is quirky but has low and very large beams that make access to bed, bath, toilet etc very challenging! The room has only one tiny window and being in the roof space is very hot... More

The owners have done an amazing job of renovating this old pub and are trying very hard to offer a luxury bed and breakfast experience. Lots of character!! We felt at home! The rooms are extremely clean and decorated with good taste. The evening meal was tasty and a good price. The staff all work hard to offer service with... More

I spent a brilliant weekend in The Kings Arms, Abergavenny while I was in town for a family Wedding. I would strongly recommend this to a friend, and would certainly return myself. The overall experience was excellent. The building and rooms and beautiful - a fantastic blend of boutique splendour and wonderful old-fashioned traditional ancient architecture - think medieval stonework,... More
