Unfortunately the owner of this well positioned hotel, turfed out the tenants who have until last year developed this hotel into a really attractive and increasingly vibrant hotel. It is now a ghost of what it was, such a shame - all for a few extra quid per month - talk about sweating an asset into dust...

The hotel is essentially a town centre public house with a few rooms available for accommodation, in a cavernous listed building, most of which is in need of complete refurbishment. This has now started but the building is a work in progress. Available rooms are not finished, with locks missing, and electrical fixtures and televisions which simply do not work.... More

My wife and I stayed here whilst competing in a local Endurance Life off road running race. The welcome was lovely with a roaring fire and comfortable seats. We were shown to our room, which had been recently refurbished and was a good size. The beer served was excellent in relaxed surroundings with plenty of space to stretch your legs.... More

Chanced upon this place whilst driving through Kingsbridge.... What an amazing place, stopped for Sunday lunch and stayed the whole day! Was given a tour by 'Colin' of this amazing building, what a venue, don't be deceived by the small bar. It has cozy chairs by the open fire, plenty of letting rooms and an unbelievable function room. Sunday Roast... More

I was disappointed - there was no one in the bar.... I waited, there were no other customers.... someone eventually came.... no apology for the delay. I had coffee which was not good quality. 2 Ladies came in and one was refused a small glass of wine with the bar man saying they didn't do it. Overall not good and... More

Stayed at the Kings Arms for one night on business and was very impressed by the friendly helpful attitude of all the staff and the owner. Comfortable room and a great breakfast. I am hoping that business will take me back to Kingsbridge, in which case I will definitely be staying at the Kings Arms

Roaring fire and good atmosphere. Will be back to sample the new menu before Xmas. Dan the new tenant is sure to make this... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. Would've loved to stay longer. Friendly obliging hosts, great meal in the restaurant for dinner. The room was lovely, especially the bathroom. The included breakfast was delicious and everything we could have wanted. Highly recommended.
