The Kingston Lodge Hotel is ideally situated for enjoying Kingston Town centre which is a mile away and is very close to Richmond Park.
My wife and I stayed for one night on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis. On arrival we found that the bed in the room we had been assigned was very small, perhaps only 4ft wide. So we phoned reception to ask if there was an alternative we were bowled over to be offered a suite at no extra cost!
The suite isn't the plushest we have ever stayed out but had everything you could wish for and the bed was bigger, but only 4.6ft at a guess.
The only problem with the room and our whole experience was the noise from the busy road outside. It really was extremely noisy as the Hotel is next to one of the main routes into Kingston. I think the major problem is the lack of triple glazing as the double glazing just didn't dampen the sound from outside.
However, this was the only problem as the staff have to be the nicest and most friendly we have encountered at a hotel. The young receptionist, barman and restuarant manager are all delightful and clearly enjoy their jobs which is a credit to them and the management at the hotel.
We ate dinner there and whilst the food is all rather basic hotel fayre, it is good quality and represents great value and the cost of wine is also acceptable. The cheese board is particularly good.
The buffet breakfast was a joy as well and for once the scrambled egg wasn't all watery so capped off a nice stay.
My recommendation is to obtain a room away from the road and also take a quick walk down the road to the Albert Pub for a couple of pints.
