Staff at Kings Hotel were friendly and informative. They referred us to a number of "spots" to see, including the Labyrinth, the Arboretum and the Eco-Shrine which was erected and explaned to us by the eco-artist who created in, Diana Graham.

We had a very pleasant stay. Staff were super and the evenings were really nice with fires going in the fireplaces to give it a really cosy atmosphere. Our room were small but yet very comfortable. Beds and bedding were super!! Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful setting. Central location in Hogsback. We enjoy walking from Kingslodge to most of the restaurants and other attractions in Hogsback. Value for money in the self catering cozy cottages. Dated interior but everything is still in good working order.

As this was a working trip, there was little opportunity to appreciate the relaxed environment of Hogsback. This meant that the self-catering facilities of my room were not of any use and that internet access was more important than the chance to go hiking or to relax on the large deck. Although all of the staff were very pleasant and... More
