This hotel provided us with everything we needed, as we had a family wedding to attend nearby. The accommodation was well maintained and some of our rooms were very spacious. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice. The thing that struck us most though, was how happy and helpful all the staff were. There was not one member of staff... More

Enjoyed our stay. Spotlessly clean very welcoming and friendly staff. Good food at a sensible price. My only gripe would be a rattly sash window which the manager took on board and was very apologetic. Thank you all for a very enjoyable stay. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Stayed 3 nights on business. Lovely old hotel which has been sympathetically refurbished to quite a high standard. Room (no. 26) was through a warren of corridors and stairs in keeping with the historic nature of the building, and was very quiet and comfortable with a fantastically comfortable bed. Bathroom had a strong and large shower and everything was very... More

The hotel has been refurbished and is pleasant. The situation on the square is ideal with many shops and restaurants nearby. The food in the hotel was typical bar food but quite good. The room we had was up numerous stairs which would not be suitable for more elderly people, especially carrying cases. Breakfast was good with fresh cooked food.... More

Just returned from another enjoyable stay at the kings head...all staff on hand and helpful...as always. Unfortunately the male member of staff serving on the bar in the evenings... who we later found out to be the Bar manager was not at all happy or welcoming during our stay ... His lack of enthusiasm stood out ...which was a shame

We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend.. Our room was a really good size with a huge bed. Shower was good. Everything was very clean. The breakfasts were lovely. The staff are all really friendly. They seem to be always working so hard. Unfortunately the lift was out of order when we were there and so I wouldn't recommend... More

We enjoyed our short break very much. The hotel has been well refurbished, the décor is good and our superior room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Its a nice location, right on the Square and just 50 yards from the Minster Church. The young team of staff are friendly and attentive, and the bar was used by... More

We visited the hotel this weekend having previously stayed in it (before the refurb). As we were visiting family and not going to be in the room for very long, we went for a cheaper room option. Our room was right above the kitchen and there is no sound proofing - to the extent, you can actually hear what the... More
