Attended a wedding function and stayed overnight. It was obvious that the new management and staff are working very hard to make improvements. We felt very welcome and enjoyed the stay. Wishing them all the best as they take this establishment forward.

My husband and myself were staying at the King's with several members of the family as we were attending a Golden Wedding party nearby. On first arriving the hotel does look in need of a bit of care and attention, rooms need updating etc. However the new owners and the staff could not have been more attentive and went out... More

Forget all the negative reviews you've read about this hotel! New managers Chris and Theresa Duggan, of the fabulous Eden Wine Bar and Restaurant in Grantham Market Place, took over the King's Hotel on 5th September 2014, the second day of our stay, and within hours the "new brooms" were sweeping extremely clean. I have known this hotel since 1979,... More

Food was great,service fantastic. Yes the hotel needs some updating which I am sure will be done soon and to a high standard. I'm looking forward... More

I stayed 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend, run down is a word I'd use. On arrival I had to butt in to a conversation the receptionist was having with a beer drinking, tattooed type talking about how he can look after himself in a fight. The hotel room was a state, patch repairs to the door where its... More
