“Lovely stay”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Stayed a night on the 'Groupon' deal. First time here, so bit sceptical about the hotel/deal, BUT pleasantly surprised! Lovely old coaching hotel with a tasteful, modern refurb, great hotel restaurant, very tasty and tidy table d'hote menu. Room, very small. but clean. Paid £89 for 4 course dinner, double room and a lovely tasty buffet breakfast. Pretty local area, would recommend....

Stayed here for one night in February 2014. The room was really lovely, well decorated and very comfortable in every way. Food was both excellent in taste and presentation. All of this was backed up by friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay even before we arrived.

thank you to all of the staff

Chose a Groupon deal to stay at the Kings Hotel for one night at £89 for a double room, 4 course meal and breakfast. Staff were great, friendly and efficient throughout our stay. When we entered the room there was a bad smell (like a blocked drain) and it was very hot, we opened the window and this eventually resolved the issues. Everything about the room was SMALL! The double bed was tiny and in order to lie down in the bath I had to put my legs up the wall. The TV reception was very bad and the floor boards creaked everywhere you walked. We spent the afternoon chilling in the Sports Bar watching the rugby and had lunch, which was excellent. We were advised to take dinner early as a wedding party were using the venue that night, so we came down at 7 pm. We had to choose from the Table d'hôte menu and asked if we could select some alternatives from their main menu and pay the extra, which they readily agreed to :) The food during our short stay was excellent and reasonably priced. Later in the evening we returned to our room only to discover that it was adjacent to the room where the wedding party disco was being held.... the noise stopped at 1:30 am!!! In the morning we went for breakfast which was very good, plenty to choose from and staff on hand to supply tea and coffee etc!

The stay was spoiled by the room and in hindsight we should have asked to be moved but decided as it was only for one night to tolerate it. We mentioned our concerns to reception in the morning whilst checking out and were informed that we were put in that room as they thought it would be quieter during the wedding function?

Overall we had a good time and it was nice to get away for a night but we would not return to this hotel again!

It was our first experience of Groupon and had heard stories of people being offered second rate meals and rooms etc simply because it's a deal? Need to experience other deals to see if this true!

Dear Guest

Thank you for your candid review of your recent stay. We were pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and in particular the food and service.

We have recently had a mini refurbishment and now every room has new TV’s with over 170 sky channels and have had new carpets in all the hallways (which has rectified the creaks). We are always trying to improve the facilities we offer and are constantly making steps to ensure the comfort and enjoyment is up to standard for all our guests.

We believe the deal is very good value for money at only £89.00 for two guests, for a four course meal and full English breakfast in a standard double room.Should you wish to give us another chance and stay again in the future please do email me directly and we will offer you a complimentary upgrade to a larger room so you may enjoy the whole experience.

We do hope to see you again in the future
Kind regards
Jo B, Hotel Manager

Had a groupon deal for The Kings Hotel. £89 for a double room, 4 course dinner and breakfast for 2 and stayed on a Saturday evening. Lovely, friendly and efficient staff. Service with a smile and very welcoming. We had a problem with our hot water in our room and the manager was very apologetic and quick to offer us an alternative room or use of another shower if we were happy with the room. As a nice surprise we were also given a complimentary bottle of wine with dinner. We enjoyed the afternoon chilling in The Sports Bar watching the rugby with a beer and then came down for dinner around 8pm. Had a delicious 4 course meal. All very tasty, hot and fresh. Reasonably priced food and drinks too. My only negative point is that our room was very hot so didn't really get a decent nights sleep but this did not spoil the overall good experience at The Kings Hotel. Breakfast was hot and good quality. Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to return.

We stayed here for one night on 25th Jan and had a pleasant stay. Room was fine with comfy bed & flat screen TV. Bathroom was OK small but adequate.The food in the restaurant was very nice, we ordered from a set menu as three courses were in the price of the package. Service was good, despite the restaurant being quite busy and staff were very friendly. Unfortunately because the Sports Bar wasn't open in the evening after our meal we went to the Royal Oak which is just around the corner, this is not open during the day. There is another bar opposite the hotel which was showing the football results. All in all our stay was enjoyable but the room was not a superior room as stated on the booking voucher. Breakfast was buffet style with everything you could want, from cereal and fruit to your traditional fry up, this was cooked well, not at all greasy. There was a private party being held in one of the function rooms for 91 people, quite a few of which were stopping at the hotel, this didn't cause a problem in any way.

I stayed here for one night on 13th jan on a business trip. I found the staff very helpful and the room very nice with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in away from home. I had a fantastic nights sleep. The bathroom could have been better as there were a few cracked floor tiles and the shower never reached a hot enough temperature for me, but it was warm. The food was fantastic both in the evening and in the morning. I would very happily stay here again if I were to be in the area.

Room Tip: Try to be at the end of a corridor as some of the corridor floor boards were very noisy.

Amazing place to eat the staff were so friendly you could not wish for better, we was on our way back from a visit to see a church where we are renewing our wedding vow's ( Ruby ) and before setting off back home 70mls away we popped in for a snack but ended up having the most tasty Beef Stew that we have ever eat out, along with the kind staff we booked our reception there only a small one in the 'snug' and our 2nd Honeymoon night. We cannot fault the " Kings " lets see how it goes on the 2nd Feb 2014
WILL be back with a follow up .......... Watch this space ;)
Thank you Jade for your help x
