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!),...

We stayed for one night only but we experienced faultless service from the moment we checked in until we checked out. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and spent the afternoon relaxing in the bar which, although open to the public, was very quiet and felt like a hotel lounge. When we arrived we were asked whether we would like... More

This is a fun hotel! The staff all have a great attitude and I don't know what happened with the "table of ten" , but it is possible they were the party from hell! it does happen! I stayed there on 9th August and it was fine! The hotel has obviously had a recent makeover it looks nice, smells nice... More

The Kings Head Hotel in Wimborne is an old building which has been updated in a way that manages to maintain its atmosphere. Our room, overlooking the square, was tastefully decorated, well cared for and had very comfortable beds. The room had no air con but did have a fan. There were tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was a bit... More

Welcoming, friendly and helpful staff throughout our two night stay here. We had a family room, it was very spacious and clean with plenty of storage space. A fan was in the room, and this was on all the time as it was very hot - there was no air con. Tasty breakfasts - we had the full English, very... More

The hotel and room was well presented and the staff were helpful and friendly. The bar had a suitable range of beers but I did not have the opportunity to sample them on this visit. The hotel is right in the centre of Wimborne and so had great access to the facilities in the town. The town is pretty and... More

It is a lovely place and you can't fault the staff. No air con but they give you a fan in your room which is nice. Breakfast wasn't brilliant as the pineapple juice had turned and I had drank it (yuk), but the cooked part was nice. I would stay again - but not in summer months.

We stayed at the King's Head while in Wimborne for our daughter's wedding. The hotel has been recently renovated and the result is great. The rooms were great, ours was by far the best of our trip, and the facilities in the hotel for food and drink were excellent. On top of this the service we received from the staff... More

We visited on Friday 18th July and had a very pleasant time. We would like to say that we were surprised by the bad review, of the table of ten. We felt that the staff were nothing but courteous and polite. Having spoken to the manageress on a few occasions and witnessed other conversations, we found her friendly and competent.... More
