The Kings Arms rescued us from a valentine double booking by another hotel. We didnt manage to have dinner but locally the hotel has a very good reputation for serving great meals. The rooms were clean and comfortable with en suite. The shower was rather under powered but in a hotel of this age you would expect quirky plumbing. The... More

Historical character pub, well situated for exploring the wonderful medieaval town of Sandwich. We couldn't fault the service, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The twin room was clean and fine for one night. However, the ensuite was tiny and the shower was poor, not much power and lukewarm, which was disappointing. The food was very... More

Friendly and efficient staff and a varied and delicious menu make this Inn a great place to eat in Sandwich. The home made pies are excellent and the Bread and Butter pudding was yummy. A full English Breakfast was included in the room rate. As you would expect my room wasn't big, but the bed was comfortable and the shower... More

We stayed for one night and would have been happy to stay on. The owner and all of his staff were friendly and made us very welcome. The food was excellent and there was a good wine list to choose from. The rooms can be a little on the small side as can the bathrooms, but bearing in mind how... More

I stayed here for three nights & my rating is related to value for money based on my room, the food, the bar, the service & the overall experience. I could easily nit pick about my room but I won't since, for £55 a night including breakfast, it would be churlish to do so. In fact, the price would have... More

We stayed here for my birthday in October. The food is wonderful. Although I ordered Lamb Kleftico and it was just Lamb Shank in Red Wine, but it was cooked perfectly and the waiting staff were very attentive and friendly. The accommodation was very clean and tidy, although not as plush as some of the pub/hotels we have stayed in... More

Yes, I agree that staff at the Kings Arms are perfectly friendly and welcoming, but nothing out of the ordinary. As for value for money, it felt ridiculously overpriced. For £85 a night I think one should be able to expect a much higher degree of comfort and style. The building externally is charming for its age, but this doesn't... More

Spent a Sunday night in this B&B. The place is very nice and has character, being a medieval building. The shower was poor, barely a dribble and the bed was a little hard and not very comfortable. I found everything to be somewhat overpriced, (room, drinks and to a lesser degree food). However, the place is very welcoming and friendly.... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the Kings Arms.....Ok so it's not what you may call a Hotel but we found it a lovely place to stay. Full of character. We had our evening meals there as well as our ample and delicious breakfasts, the food was first rate [thank you Chef]. An excellent garden added to our enjoyment.... More
