“Large room let down by breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stayed at the Kings Court hotel last weekend.

We were in a Kings room which I think had recently been refurbished. The room was huge compared to some rooms we've had in hotels with a similar price. The bathroom was clean and modernised.

The breakfast buffet was OK - not great but I don't like buffets in general so maybe I'm being a bit unfair. There was a choice of cereals, fruit etc and hot dishes such as eggs, fried bread and bacon.

The staff were helpful and friendly and this become very clear after we arrived home and found that we'd left out jackets hanging up in the room. (We'd arrived in torrential rain and hung the jackets in a separate part of the wardrobe to avoid wetting the rest of our clothes. The weather then changed and we didn't need them again which is why we forgot they were hanging there).

My husband called the hotel and spoke to Bess who said that Housekeeping who would normally have the items had gone but that she would try to track them down. Bess called back 20 minutes later to say that she had found them.

Monday was a bank holiday so no post but the items were posted to us on the Tuesday and arrived today (Wednesday) which is great service.

We'd stay here again if we visit the area.

We stayed in the hotel which was booked as a Living Social deal as an extra treat to ourselves! The Premier room was lovely and spacious with lovely relaxing decor. We had our 3 course evening meal included which was really tasty! as were the full English breakfasts which had so much choice! The hotel was really peaceful as all rooms were at the back of the hotel away from the main road. Even though we had a room on the ground floor there were no noise issues at all! The hotel is a short distance from Stratford- on- Avon which we visited. We went on open top bus to see the 5 houses of William Shakespeare followed by a river boat cruise. Had a really great weekend with magnificent weather! Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone! The staff were really friendly and service first class!

Room Tip: Premier rooms are spacious with lovely decor and King size beds

We were visiting Coughton Court nearby and checked out several pubs for lunch in Alcester. We ended up here by mistake! It turned out to be a happy accident. I had melon with fruit sorbet and salsa which was very good indeed. My partner had soup and veal stew which he praised highly. Service was a wee bit slow but we were not pushed for time. Our Polish waitress was lovely and very helpful. The bar was quiet which was a blessing. Some folk were eating outside and seemed warm enough although I was not going to risk it. This was a good lunch and I would come here again. The building is old and the bar had a good atmosphere.

Large room but cracked walls and delapidated industrial style bathroom. Happened to be right next to the very very loud function room.

Off the road you see beautiful timber frame with ivy. Round the back you get dirty mid 80's chintz with a hint of bad b&b. i am just stunned, like a veal calf just wanting it to end and to think I actually paid for this.

I booked by phone and was shocked to be given a small room with a very small double bed with springs one could feel. I was told this was their last room until I complained and we were given a room with two beds.

The bathroom was very small and the floor felt unsafe, I didn't take a bath as it looked as though it was coming away from the floor.

The food was really dreadful, from a very limited menu I chose shank of lamb which was inedible as was the unmashed potato. Not having eaten all day , I chose "Eaton" Mess which was unrecognisable and not worth eating. Luckily there were two wrapped biscuits in the room which we ate for breakfast, the thought of returning to the dining room with the loud music was too much.

All the staff were friendly and very kind.

I use the kings court a lot as I live in the north but my offices are in Redditch.

It's a lovely place with great staff, very clean, with a great little pub/restaurant attached (boot and shoe).

The only downside is that the food can be a little inconsistent at times although its normally pretty good if you speak with the staff and get their recommendations.

This is a great looking hotel from the outside which doesn't quite deliver as expected. The reception experience was excellent - warm and friendly welcome - and the room was neat, warm and spacious. Dinner at the restaurant is the only real option, with the food quite reasonable but service lacking. The staff seemed indifferent, and reluctant (or distracted) to take our order. Breakfast (included) was a better experience - food and service was great. For the price this place could be a real winner, but I guess you get what you pay for.
