We arrived on a Thursday afternoon to be greeted by Mark and his new member of staff, a young and enthusiastic addition to the Kings Head team.
We were booked into Room 1, a fairly spacious room with old furniture but a new bed with spotlessly clean sheets and cover.
The building is old and therefore can give the feeling of being dirtier than it really is. However a lack of cleaning staff over the past few weeks has not helped and the bedroom did need more attention to cleanliness around the sink and shower areas.
Mark is a very enthusiastic manager and has obviously tried his hardest to develop business through the hotel, for example by bringing Italian food to Southwold where there is no other current provider.
The breakfasts are very good and provide a wide choice, although we did not have the opportunity of eating in the evening.
On talking with Mark he informed me that in the next few weeks carpets and curtains will be replaced and the rooms will be re-decorated, along with extras such as table lamps, door hooks and presumably toilet brushes!
With new staff in place to presumably ensure the rooms are cleaned to the highest standard and the new decor, the plus points of the food, location and enthusiasm of the management will improve the future reports on Trip Advisor.
We wish Mark well in the future and we look forward to our next visit to The Kings Head.
