We had a lovely stay at The Dukes Head. The room and bathroom were lovely in the old part of the hotel. We didn't see any of the modern part. The front of the hotel is so pretty on a square of very old picturesque buildings. Perfect location for the shopping centre and also walking around the medieval part of... More

We are local and have stayed before at the hotel. I spotted the amazing groupon deal and we decided to have a celebratory night away. We had room 100 which was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. I've stayed in the more classier rooms but this was still lovely. These back rooms could really do with air conditioning or at least... More

Lots of other guests were talking about the same thing with reception advising people it usually finishes around 11, we thought... More

The room was pleasant with the usual tea coffee and flat screen... More

My girlfriend and I checked in after I completed a 16-hour working day at a local event. After finishing my work at the hotel, I got into bed only to find the mattress had completely given way. It was like sleeping on a broken park bench, except with the sound of springs doing things they shouldn't. I attempted to contact... More

We only stayed one night sadly, if I had known how good it was going to be I would have booked the two night groupon deal. Our room was 108, reasonable size, comfy bed but what a small bathroom. I liked the walk in shower but in general way too small.The market place is impressive and the rest of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of King's Lynn old town and overlooking the historic market place, the Duke's Head is perfect for discovering what Norfolk has to offer to the business and leisure traveller. Since Georgian times, this impressive classical building has welcomed visitors including Princess Victoria and Sir Robert Walpole (generally considered to be the first Prime Minister of Great Britain) in considerable comfort and style.Its location overlooking the ancient market place in the centre of King's Lynn would have denoted its importance in a town peppered with fine historic buildings. The Duke's Head is located walking distance away from King's Lynn station, nightlife, restaurants, bars and leisure club. Kings Lynn is serviced by regular trains to London and serves as an ideal location for discovering Norfolk. North Norfolk is an ideal tourist destination. Whether you enjoy the lively atmosphere and entertainment offered by traditional seaside resorts, the tranquility of the small fishing villages, which spring to life at high tide, you can't help but be impressed by the beautiful coastline and the fascinating history of its towns. The Hotel has recently benefited from a 3 million pound refurbishment. ... more   less
