I've stayed here occasionally since 2009. Service is great. Dining Room food very average - service excellent. Now there is no mini bar. Saved me a fortune but when I arrive I have always enjoyed a wine and some chips / peanuts after usually a long drive. One thing that has always annoyed me is the lack of plugs around... More

We were 3 friends staying only 1 night being in town for the rugby. Checkin was easy and the room was quite nice albeit snug with 2 beds and a roll away. Good balcony. Minor criticism was despite hanging a sign to request the morning paper, none was delivered. One major criticism is the lack of free Wifi which most... More

A great surprise awaits beyond. I recently stayed here for 4 + 1 extra night (Due to flight delay). On arrival in the evening I thought how old and dated it looked and felt the pains of disapointment. HOWEVER, I was met by very polite and efficient reception staff. Check in was extremely quick. To my surprise I was upgraded... More

I stayed here on the fifth floor of the hotel (it only has five floors), with my parents in one room and brother in another. It's a good location, just behind the Octagon, though the parking was full when we arrived about 1pm and there is a short steep incline to the hotel, if you are on foot. From the... More

I loved the first time I stayed at the kingsgate!! I was disappointed I didn't get the room I had requested because of miss communication ... I probably won't go back again - not that it's bad to stay there I enjoyed it just because I would rather try somewhere else.. And I was guttered about the room mix up!... More

If you have another option, I would choose it. We found the reception casual and the rooms noisy, and there was no free wifi. The walls are made of paper; you can hear the people in the next room having a conversation. (In German unfortunately - even the eavesdropping wasn't worth it...) We spent three weeks travelling around the South... More

Have stayed here a few times in the past but but now I don't think I will again as if you want to sleep at night this is not the place as all night all you could hear is the water pipes and toilets flushing along with heavy doors banging shut and people talking in the next door room. The... More

This hotel has a rather dated feel, though it has been redecorated and isn't scruffy in any way. It's a Kingsgate now but has been through different hands over the years. Upside: the rooms are quite large, and the building is well constructed and is quiet. The location simply can't be beaten; near to the Octagon (city centre) but in... More
