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

Due to an unexpected mini drama of being locked out of our apartment we were unable to obtain an emergency locksmith so we were faced with sleeping the night in the car. Our landlords, who have recently taken ownership of the Kings Hotel in Grantham kindly suggested we stayed at the Kings free of charge instead of sleeping in the... More

Our party of four we were among the last guests who stayed here prior to closure for their big refurbishment. The new management had only been in residence for three weeks and you could see the improvements were getting underway. We cannot wait to see the finished results as we know they will be fabulous. Our room was the bridal... More

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
