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

Very good comfortable hotel in the centre of Wimborne. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the food excellent value. The hotel has been recently renovated, our room was very confortable with an en suite bathroom. Wimborne Minster is well worth visiting and is only a short walkinv distance from the Hotel.

10 of us went for dinner menu not great. We thought we were being viewed with suspicion from the start. The staff thought one under age member of the group was drinking which he wasn't and became extremely rude (on top of their forgetfulness )when we asked for another glass of wine we were refused with no reason given by...

We visited Kings Head for a second time. Pleased to see it had been refurbished since our last visit. Our room was clean + comfortable. Excellent choice at breakfast. All the staff were very friendly + helpful. Location is excellent for touring round Dorset.

We booked a 2 night stay to visit friends in the area. We opted for the twin room, as we are used to a super king size bed, and the only alternative was a standard double. The staff are all brilliant, and we really appreciated the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere. However, based on being a light sleeper, our room had... More

In need of somewhere to lunch yesterday, whilst my husband and I looked round Wimborne, I wanted somewhere simple, straight forward and offering good value for money. We spotted the lunch time offer at the Kings Head. We were very pleased with our choice. There were plenty of options from the set menu and we chose the fish and chips.... More

My wife and I (plus Yorkshire Terrier) spent five days at The Kings Head last week. We have stayed at this hotel several times before and find it to be good value Three Star. A refurbishment was carried out last year and the hotel is, therefore, in quite good repair with just a few exceptions. Our stay coincided with a... More

2 night stay in this hotel. Room was very spacious, good lighting. Bed comfortable but spoilt by cheap and nasty pillows. Housekeeping needs to be looked at, grubby finger prints on doors and frames, bath mat black with mildew. Parking a little problematic, not enough spaces. Food was good however and close proximity to shops and Wimborne Minster made this... More
