We have just returned from a ‘Groupon’ deal at Kings Court and had a wonderful weekend. We arrived Friday evening and the deal included a carafe of wine on arrival. I must admit to not having high expectations from this part of the deal, but the House Red was a more than adequate Shiraz that went down very smoothly. We drank it in the Twisted Boot bar which itself is very homely and full of character, a lovely place for us as a couple to sit and relax and chat.
From reading other reviews we were slightly concerned when we were allocated our room in the older part of the building, but upon arriving in Room 31 we were pleasantly surprised by what we found; the room and bathroom were spacious and clean, if there was a minor point to make, there was some mild condensation marks in the bathroom, but nothing to make a fuss of.
We went down for breakfast the next morning at 8.15am and found a good selection of cereal and fruit, however on the hot selection the scrambled egg had already ran out and took over half an hour to be replenished, even the Maitre De was tearing his hair out with the chef. Sunday breakfast was similar but this time it was sausage that wasn’t available for a while. A shame that this small area let down what was, otherwise, a perfect stay.
All the staff we encountered were friendly, polite and efficient. We didn't partake of evening meals in the hotel but the boards in the Twisted Boot bar indicated a selection from £10-£15. Overall we would recommend this hotel but hope they can find a more efficient chef.
