This was my second visit to the refurbished Kings Head. Being Beccles born and bred the first was a bit of a culture shock but one must, I suppose move with the times.
We booked via Late rooms but all contact was directly with the hotel (Tip:- book on line there is often quite a substantial discount). The book in staff were more than helpful. We given the option (as it was available) of their disabled room as my wife has problems negotiating stairs. Although we were slightly early we were signed in and taken to our room. Entry was through a rather nondescript door, electronic key to a spacious room. Although the frosted window was rather small the room itself was well lit. The ensuite WET room was well appointed although the wash hand basin was rather small. The room itself had a comfortable bed with TV and tea and coffee making facilities. After settling in we decided to have a meal in the restaurant area. After finding a table I ordered our food and rink at the bar. There were a number of real ales available and a choice of white wines by the bottle or glass. I ordered our meals> We both had a half rack of ribs which were quickly delivered but rather small portions (not surprising considering the price) followed by an excellent apple crumble and custard. After a little wander around Lowestoft and Beccles carried out my reason for the visit we retired to bed. As it was about a 4 hour journey home we checked out without sampling the breakfasts available, Maybe next time. Now the down side...There always is one. Car parking. There is none, Except for a disabled bay by reception. There are public car parks nearby by I like to be within easy reach in case I have left something I need. All in all a pleasant stay and we will probably use The Kings Head on our next visit to Beccles
