I have stayed here on a number of occasions over the last few months due to business in the area, the bookings were made for me and, after staying here, I would not book the hotel for myself. Apart from my first check in, when there were a number of people waiting to check in and the girl on reception... More

A very beautiful hotel with such history ! Inside there is the most stunning stairs where you can just imagine ladies of yesteryear walking down with their gowns trailing behind them. Reception was very friendly and quickly took us through the necessary booking in process. Our room was lovely, beautifully set up and spacious with a huge en suite and... More

Everything was excellent, the public rooms, the food, our bedroom and the pleasant very efficient service. Whilst the original hotel has much old world character it has been very well refurbished. Bar prices and wine at table were a bit in the high side. The only fly in the ointment was the lack of sufficient car park spaces. There appears... More

We had a really good experience at this Legacy Hotel in King's Lynn, and have already started to recommend it to our friends and family. Having just trawled through lots of recent reviews, it becomes clear that not everyone is satisfied, but we are looking forward to our next visit. I guess we could find some minor niggles to moan...

Stayed for two nights after booking with a Travelzoo deal. £155 for two nights in a Classic room. Its exceptional value, when you consider you get a Bucks Fizz and English cream Tea on arrival, value £5.95 per person. First night you get a complimentary 3 course meal, £25 per person plus a bottle of complimentary house wine at £14.95... More

Stayed with friends on a 2 night Travelzoo break which included Bucks Fizz, afternoon tea, 3 course dinner on first night and breakfast on two mornings. Very good external and internal refurbishment. Small car park that seemed to have enough spaces for the main building only, not the annex, so parking in nearby car parks may be the only option.... More

On arrival we were over charged for our room, when we pointed this out there was no apology just a grumpy face, there was also loud music playing that we had not been informed of ... when we asked how long it may go on for we got a flippant answer. After a freshen up we ventured to the restaurant... More

Had lunch here a few months ago and decided to return for an overnight stay. The hotel and restaurant has had a £2 million pound refurbishment. The hotel room was of a good standard. Dinner was excellent, good quality dinner and wines. I think our waitress was Natasha, recently promoted and an asset to the hotel, looked after us and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, the food was excellent quality, staff were friendly and efficient, we upgraded our room and were very pleased with the size and standard of the furnishings. The room was in the more historic part of the building, the stairs could be an issue for those less mobile. If the car park is full there... 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
