We visited for an evening meal with my in-laws. In our party, there was 1 vegetarian and two individuals with unusual food/allergy requirements. We were welcomed to the bar by friendly, smiling staff who sorted our drinks quickly, before taking us to our table and handing us to the restaurant staff. The menu had a good range of options, including... More

The room was good with the equivalent of a king size bed made up from two wide single beds. Enough towels, a good bath/shower but it lacked the personal items - conditioner, body lotion, cotton buds etc that one is used to in hotels charging,for us, £125 a night. The soap containers supplied shot soap at an angle designed to... More

I needed an overnight stay in Wimborne because I had tickets for a show at the Tivoli theatre. The Hotel was ideal not too far to walk to the Theatre. The room was clean, comfy and a spacious ensuite, also free wifi was available. Breakfast was delicious and offered low fat options. Would certainly stay there again.

The Kings Head Hotel occupies a large frontage onto the main square of Wimborne Minster. My visit was not for an overnight stay, but rather as a place to take lunch when in the centre of Wimborne. The hotel has recently undergone a make over, and it shows. The bar and restaurant is a pleasant, if very dark ( a... More

Me and my girlfriend recently travelled to Wimborne for an evening at the local, Tivoli Theatre. Recently refurbished rooms, good value and a nice breakfast were promised ... and the Kings Head definitely did not disappoint. In the local area the average price for a Premier Inn/Travelodge was around £140-£150 p/night as it is the peak season, whereas the Kings... More

Don't bother it's not worth the effort. Roast beef would have been better used to repair your shoes and the staff in the bar had no idea what they were doing. French wine never heard of it - we don't sell French wine was the reply when asked.

A one night stay when on a family business trip. Breakfast and breakfast staff were both of good quality ! The staff went that extra mile for you . The room was reasonably comfortable as was the bed. The bathroom was clean and functional. The big minus for me was the rather large old blood stain that was found on... More

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised that Wimborne was really busy midweek. We decided to eat at this hotel as it had recently been refurbished. Warm tartan colours, soothing paintwork and attention to detail. Staff very friendly and although the restaurant was full, very quickly found us a table whereby we could order our food at the bar. Great... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Staff were friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was tasty - had everything that you would expect from the continental breakfast and the cooked breakfast was delicious. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated and has a classic feel.

I have been visiting once a week for the past couple of years with friends for coffee. The place badly needed updating and looks great now it has been refurbished however, during the last month we have had cold coffee, No coffee (not their fault, the coffee machine was broken but they could not offer any other coffee, even instant!),...
