While on Holiday in Wimborne this year we visited the Hotel for a Bar Meal on the Sunday evening (24/08/2014). Overall the Meal was satisfactory. So on those grounds the following evening we revisited this establishment with two friends who were also visiting the Area. We ordered a Round of Drinks (2 x soft Drinks and 2 Pints of Green... More

We stayed here for two nights on a B&B basis as we were in Wimborne for a wedding. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I have always thought that it is not necessary to be perfect, just willing to sort out any niggles; in our case there was a shortage of towels in the room and the receptionist was... More

Terrible. Filthy bathroom, a previous guest spat on the TV - which is bad - no one had cleaned it off, which is worse. Breakfast is just dreadful. But, as the man said when I checked out: "we're the only hotel in town". And who could doubt it.

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
