Just had a couple of nights in room 11. Very nice indeed. Lovely and spacious, warm and very very clean. Everything that should work did (except the phone) and all the plugs were well accessible. Had a fab dinner in restaurant and all the staff were not just helpful but friendly as well. Free wifi worked in the room. There... More

Our room, at the front of the hotel, was gorgeous and opulent. A bed so big we couldn't find each other, which makes a pleasant change from the modern hotels where you hang on to the sides for dear life for fear of falling out!! An oldey-worldy hotel with plenty of character and original architecture. Our room was more of... More

Had the pleasure of attending a Golden Wedding lunch held in the Vancouver Room. The room was beautifully presented and the staff who looked after us could not have been more attentive and professional. The food was superb. Everyone from the receptionist who sorted out my parking, the barman and as mentioned the staff who served the lunch were a... More

The hotel has a wonderful frontage and entrance hall, and all the older parts of the building are very special. No wonder it is popular for weddings. The lounge area is big and comfortable, with classic décor. The newer part of the hotel at the rear is characterless and on a par with standard business hotels around the country, with... More

Stayed one night on business. Room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Staff were helpful, cheerful , and polite. The only downside was the breakfast. £12.50 was on the high side for a forgettable breakfast ! If I were to return to kings Lynn I would stay here again.

This is my second stay at this hotel. The location is in the heart of the old town. The hotel rooms are comfortable and very clean. Staff are helpful. Excellent value. The rooms have free Wi-Fi which is good,however the connection drops regularly. There is free parking for guests to the rear of the hotel.

A lovely old looking hotel on the main square in Kings Lynn, although there's a much more modern wing at the back which is where I was. The room I had served its purpose and was adequate enough, although I’m sure it was one of their best (room 27) as the bed was pretty awful, the mattress was so thin... More

I stayed one night at the Legacy Duke's Head based on my clients referral that it was the best hotel in Kings Lynn - it probably is. It is set in the center of town, with free car parking to the rear (or £1 paid-for overnight parking at the front in the square if you like the greater convenience of... More

Great location. Lot of shops, eateries and pubs within walking distance. Parking lot is small and cramped, found it easier to park in the square out front and pay the pound for 6pm to 8am parking. Room was small but sufficient. Wifi was in and out, making it difficult to work.

Thanks for your review. As in many town centre hotels, the car parking is an issue when the hotel is full, but we are fortunate in having a large car park right outside the hotel. The advantage to a town centre location is of course the proximity of other services. The Company is currently looking at long term solutions for... More
