I had booked into the Kings Arms on a ten year old recommendation. This was my first mistake. While the sole member of staff was friendly and efficient at multitasking she had to be grossly over worked. We sped in the bar for one drink where the floor was dirty - including left over peanuts on the stained floor- and... More

Friendly enough. Clean. Good size rooms too. Would certainly recommend it. Priced about right too. Food looked good. Ate elsewhere but would like to stay again and try the grill menu. Set in the middle of the picturesque Malmesbury. Perfect little British village with independent coffee shops and restaurants scattered around. So glad it's not yet been ruined by franchise... More

Malmesbury is expensive, it's in the Cotswolds. We don't have a great deal of money to throw around so booked to stay 1 night after a wedding as it was the cheapest place available. We weren't expecting much as we'd seen the reviews and photos but we weren't really going to be stopping much in our room and would be... More

Booked for 2 nights to attend a nearby wedding. Had to change the first room we had. The room was in what looked like converted stables. It was like an oven inside but could not go out and leave any windows open because it was on the ground floor by the car park. Changed to a room on the first... More

We stayed for one night as attending a local wedding. Simply - DO NOT stay - it's filthy and disgusting. Every surface in the room was disgusting and there is no way you would want to get in the shower - it's felt like a complete joke. We happened to see the chef at reception ( he was checking a...

On arrival we were shown to room Number 12, at the top of the building. We had paid £53 for a double room with breakfast for 2 people. First impressions were disappointing, the room was filthy, the bins in both the bathroom and bedroom had not been emptied since the previous occupants, the coffee making tray was dirty and dusty,...

The hotel may be over 400 years old and I can understand the sloping floors. But I didn't think this would also mean over 400 years of dust (see YouTube) The bed was comfortable but everything in the room was very shabby. The soap tray had broken off and there was nowhere to put your shampoos etc. Try bending down... More

Very basic which would be acceptable if the place was clean. Very dirty, bed unmade and bathroom filthy, this room had not been cleaned from previous occupants. Staff were very nice and couldn't do enough but cleaner needs to be sacked!!. Food was lovely but service was very slow even at the bar.

I can't comment on the meals, as I didn't have any. However, the room was tired, tatty and hadn't seen a cleaner, probably for weeks. Dust, cobwebs and fluff were everywhere. Bed linen, however, was good, as if should be. If you have a choice of elsewhere, I would avoid the Kings Arms.
