Was not quite sure what to expect after reading the reviews but this evening experienced a very pleasant time in the pub with a friend. Tasty well presented pub/gastro pub style food served very promptly. Given the location seemed good value. Nice glass of wine as well! Careful and courteous service from staff who seemed keen to please.

Like one of the previous posters, I was a fairly regular customer here prior to the change of management, and was excited to see what the brewery would do to make it an even nicer pub than it already was. LIttle has changed cosmetically from how it used to be which is a relief, because an old building like this... More

This pub/hotel is in an asolutely prime position and should be a gold mine. I visited on Easter Bank Holiday Monday, the area was buzzing, Hampton Court, BusheyPark and a huge fun fair. The pub ran out of draught beer at 2pm!.They ran out of ice and the food , sandwiches for me and the other 9 people in our... More

We are disappointed to hear about your experience at the Kings Arms hotel as we strive for all our guests to have a wonderful experience and we are saddened to hear that this was not the case for you. We unfortunately ran out of Kronenberg, our guest ale and some food items due to popularity on the day. This was... More

staff very friendly and helpful. Late checkout at no extra charge was appreciated. Room clean and comfortable. Good shower. Excellent toiletries and towels! Some redecoration needed but I understand it is due for a refurb. Worth remembering that it is an old pub. Not a modern purpose built hotel and this is reflected in the character of the rooms. Didn't... More

Its an old pub/hotel with friendly staff who could not do enough for you.Food was typical pub food, good.We had a great time .The rooms are due to be updated.If you want a nice relaxed stay in a quaint old pub, ideal for visiting Hampton court, this is the place.Thanks.

Just eaten here for the first time after the revamp. Very disappointed with the quality of the food. Gourmet burger of a low standard, far to much vegetation and not great meat. Friday evening only 5 people in the bar. Time for another rethink.

We Stayed here 20th - 22nd February. We are regular visitors at least twice a year as the location is excellant ( provided you get a parking space outside the hotel, otherwise it could be very difficult parking ) for walking, cycling, bus or 35 minute train to the capital. Having been closed last year, and taken over by Hall... More

Thank you for your feedback which I have relayed onto the team. We took over the Kings Arms Hotel in February and opened to the public on the 11th February. The refurbishment was to sort out many back of house issues the previous owners did not fix and serious damp problems. The main refurbishment will occur early next year and... More

Went there yesterday Thursday 26 Feb 2015, having been a fairly regular visitor prior to the "upgrade". Was rather looking forward to seeing improvements, but disappointing overall. Staff seemed friendly and engaging enough... But food is letting it down... Won't be long before it only serves hotel guests and those who don't read trip advisor! The upgrade seemingly is on...

Just had such a lovely stay at the Kings Arms that we booked in again for two weeks time. Staff were brilliant, moving their own cars to make room for us, upgrading us to a wonderful suite for no extra cost and really making us welcome. Place has had a bit of a facelift and rooms were clean and atmospheric.... More

We stayed there last weekend (20th/21st Feb) for the first time in about a year. The hotel had recently reopened and all the rooms were in much better shape. I was especially impressed with the attitude of the staff - they were genuinely keen to help and really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. It's nice... More
