Have just visited the Kings hotel for a pre-Christmas family get-together. I can’t say I was looking forward to the prospect much after many underwhelming experiences at the hotel at various anniversary parties etc over the past three decades. However my parents have frequented the place more regularly over the years and so we agreed to give it a go... More

First observation is that this hotel appears to have an identity problem and doesn’t seem to know whether to pitch itself to its old clientele, become a boutique hotel or a party venue and this Jekyll and Hyde identity set the tone for the whole evening. Our pre-Christmas family get together was booked a few weeks ago and we were... More

I feel I must respond to your unfair and overly structured review of our buisness as you clearly wish to portray us incorrectly. your opinion if fair would be accepted and taken on board but because you have chosen to a deliberate hatchet job,I feel compelled to address your comments.It would not surprise me if you have links to our...

We regularly visit family in Grantham & The Eden Wine Bar/Restaurant was one of our favourite eateries. We found out that the owner has recently acquired The Kings Hotel (Which is only a 5 minute walk from families house) so decided to try as the original Kings had been lacking in décor & food choice. The refurbished lounge is now... More

Bar was cold to sit in. Food terrible. Xmas dinner very disappointing, mash cold, sprouts hard as was the stuffing ball. Veg casserole burnt. Got a discount on bill but spoilt a lunch we were all looking forward to.

New owners have re-opened The King's Hotel, Grantham and brought it back to how we used to know and love it. They have refurbished the lounge, restaurants and function rooms to create somewhere you would wish to keep returning to. The staff are welcoming and attentive. The menus are varied and no one should be disappointed with the choice available,... More

We visited the Eden House Hotel last week for an evening meal and could not complain. The food was lovely. We had the 3 course Winter A La Carte Menu and was very pleased. The food was delicious and well presented. The only criticism we had was that an onion side dish to the steak main was served warm instead... More

My first time at the kings for years. Inside there is still work to do, but overall the place appears to be on the up. The food was disappointing, with some parts of the menu cold whilst others were hot. In their defence they were very busy and the new management will take time to bed in, I was, however,... More

Stayed for one night and on arrival we were greeted promptly. Was asked to pay up front which is never a good thing. Room was very drab and dated. Went to have a shower and the cubicle door was hanging at an angle that meant the floor got soaked. The shower was just a trickle. Went out for the evening... More

Stayed here recently and the place is about to undergo a downstairs refurb, which will dramatically improve what was a very faded gem. We have stayed many times and have a great fondness for the place. The staff have been outstanding, hard working and friendly, especially Jane on reception., who throughout a series of indifferent and useless owners has kept... More
