Thank you for taking the time to write the review regarding your recent break at The Kings. It saddens me deeply to read of your dissatisfaction with the stay which I am truly sorry for. I would very much like to discuss it further to try and make amends and restore your faith in us. I have sent you an email previously and will be contacting you tomorrow by phone to hopefully rectify the situation, as I would like to assure you we take all comments positive or negative seriously so we can look to maintain the standards I believe we strive to present, which we have obviously fallen short of on your experience. Yours Sincerely Charles Williamson

My small party enjoyed an excellent meal at this hotel - their Market Menu was a very reasonably priced Table D'hote offering a choice of four dishes for each course. (And, of course, the a la carte was also available.) All the food was excellent and the staff member looking
