We stayed at Kings Landing Inn Hotel for 1 night in September 2007. Kings Landing Inn is located in Clifton within short walking distance of everything, and is fronted by Clifton Harbour. There are 2 blocks of buildings, motel-looking is how we would describe them, and a separate cottage. We were in the yellow building which has the pool view rooms. The cottage also faces the pool and the harbour. The pool is small and above-ground.
Our room was decent and clean. The bed was quite comfortable. Not the heavenly bed, but comfortable nevertheless. The decor of the room is outdated, but that didn't bother us since we hardly spent any time in the room. It had an A/C that worked very well, a mini-fridge which was great to have, a coffemaker, and a tiny TV (smaller than our computer monitors at home!). Actually the TV was great! Very good reception, despite it's small size. The TV channels must have been satellite or cable because we got channels from the U.S. There is no safe in the room, so we just hid our valuables under the Bible. LOL. Give a would-be thief something to think about. ;-)
The bathroom was basic but clean. The water pressure in the shower is good. There is even a hairdryer, though I did not test it to see if it was working as I don't use a hairdryer when I'm in the islands.
The room rates include breakfast. It was actually funny how everyone was so concerned that we had not been served breakfast when we checked-out the next day. We were headed for our daysail so we didn't really have time to eat breakfast.
The family who runs KLI are very nice people. They were very excited to have us, everyone came and met us when the taxi dropped us off. One thing I will never forget is when we "checked-in", they handed us a guestbook where we signed our names and our City and State where we are from. Then they took us and showed us to our room. We thought perhaps they were just going to show us our room choices, but no, that's it, we were checked-in. No taking down the credit card information, or cash deposit (do places do that?), or anything! Wow, we thought. They are very trusting people!
Overall we thought KLI was a good value. If you're not looking for anything fancy and just want to be in town, this is a good place to stay. If ever we had to stay in Union Island again, we would consider staying at KLI again. No Wifi or high speed conneciton though
The great thing about KLI is its location. It's so convenient to get around Clifton by walking from here..
