“New year get away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012 via mobile

Having camped near by we knew masham was a great ace to visit and having had a few drinks in the kings we knew we wanted to return.

A group of four with two rooms stayed here new years eve and day, new years eve meal was a bit rushed but was great.

The hotel itself was boiling hot most of the time and the room on the second floor was uncomfortably hot at night. The room on the third (top) floor was ok but still warm.

The staff where great and always on hand and helpful.

Breakfast on both morinings was well stocked and the cooked breakfast was top noch.

Spent 2 nights at the hotel, read the previous reports so weren't expecting too much. We had paid a little bit more for an upgraded room, so were allocated a room upstairs at the back of the courtyard. We were pleasantly surprised by the room, nice and large, it had a super kingsize bed with beams overhead. Bathroom had a large shower cubicle and bath and toilet. There was a bit of a smell of the drains(?) but we kept the door shut. Very comfy bed, nice and quiet and had 2 good nights sleep. Got a bit of a fright first night as someone tried the bedroom door. Didn't eat here but at the Bay Horse which was very good. Had a drink the White Bear pub which was quite expensive, £4.15 for a pint of theakstons ale which is made around the corner!!

I did'nt expect too much from our stay at the Masham. We needed accommodation and the Kings Head was the only place with two rooms. On first looks it seemed the rooms were comfortable but in both rooms the showers leaked and in our friends bathroom so much so the constant dripping kept them awake. Breakfast was a mediocre experience part self serve with shortages of bowls, hot water and butter, and the served part which resulted in burnt toast and cooked breakfasts served on cold plates. We won't be back.

The Kings Head is still an imposing building on the market place in Masham but it has lost its old charm and quirkyness, probably due to the "corporate image" it is following as a Good Night Inn. The beer is also very expensive - £3.40 for a pint of Old Peculier!!. The hotel is now just a bland copy of nmany others which is a shame.

Room Tip: The outside rooms allow pets, and the main hotel rooms have more character.

Went with friends for a celebration and was really excited to take them there as I had been a couple of times before.
I was so disappointed! We stayed in what was meant to be a luxury room which turned out to be very expensive and not worth the money.
It had a mezzanine bedroom which proved very difficult as our clothes were all downstairs, bathroom downstairs and a bed upstairs. Very confusing to stay in!! Not comfortable or cosy. There were no cosmetics which I expected due to the costs we paid but had a squeezy bottle of 'one squeeze to wash all body, hair and face. Also very difficult to use if you decided to have a bath or wash in the sink. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles as no one seemed to have a specific job and we were asked the same question several times about tea, toast, breakfast - could do with some organisation. We did ask the staff if the place had been taken over as it no longer seemed to be the lovely village inn that we had previously experienced. They said they had not been taken over but were part of branding by sleep inns. Well I for one wont be returning there to stay!!

Room Tip: dont expect luxury in the luxury rooms be better to stick with the cheaper ones in the hotel

My partner and I had originally booked for three nights’ accommodation at the Kings Head but we only stayed for one night as we were very disappointed with the whole experience. We had previously stayed here several times before and found the food and rooms of reasonable standard; however this time round it was quite the opposite. Our starters during dinner were cold, our room looked shabby with a leaking shower and when we spoke to the manager she didn’t seem that interested in our concerns. The cost of staying here is expensive when compared to other local places to stay. We won’t be staying here again!

Room Tip: Don't stay here
