Location was ideal to visit Kings Lynn. Room clean and staff very helpful. Loved the Sunday dinner!

Firstly I must say that we are fans of the Wetherspoon product and use their pubs and hotels on a regular basis.
We have stayed at the Globe before to knew to expect a noisy night and asked to be placed on the second floor. We did not hear the disco but on a warm night with the window open to it fullest - four inches we did hear all the street noise.
We booked for two nights and arrived to a small but clean room with large clean bathroom, the room had a comfortable bed with good quality linen, duvet and pillows. The hospitality tray included a single packetof biscuits with two biscuits in it teabags coffee two sachets each decaff and regular and a small bottle each of still and fizzy water.
Next morning went down to breakfast, did some shopping and returned about 2pm to drop off the bags, room had been made up but no additional supplies added to the hospitality tray - on leaving the hotel 10 mins later I asked the receptionist if she could ask housekeeping to refresh the tray, she told me that she would ask but the water was provided compimentary from the group to travellers and was not replaced for people staying two nights as we were. I pointed out that this was a little mean, as we were not expecting to have the linen on the bed changed and we were still paying full price £54 per night for the room only.
I note also that the early booking discounts do not appear on web bookings either. We did get a call at abouty 4.30pm to say that supplies of tea and coffee were available at reception if we wanted to go and fetch them - I had aleady been out and bought what we wanted.... poor show.
During the early morning Sunday, at about 8am (before we changed the clocks) we were awakened by the windows of our bedroom being cleaned .... who put the Hospitality into the Hospitality business NOT wetherspoons. When asked about the noise we did get an apology from the receptionist who seemed to think it appropriate to refer to us as my love..... Poor show all round

Room Tip: Only book each night singly there is no benefit to the customer by booking more than one night at a...

GlobeHotel1, Front Office Manager at Globe Hotel, responded to this review, May 2, 2012
We would like to thank you , once again, for placing your trust in the Wetherspoons brand and choosing to stay with us at The Globe Hotel. In the same breath we would also like to offer our most sincere apologies regarding the lack of care bestowed upon your welcome tray. Whilst the receptionist was correct in the nature of her response, we do generally only supply an initial full specification of refreshments, including bottled water, for the first night of your stay as a welcome, we could perhaps have assisted you with a little extra service and provided additional items upon request. Ideally delivering them to your room to save you any further inconvenience. Our second regret is the untimely and early awakening you received from our over zealous window cleaner. This was certainly not our intention and we are deeply disappointed that on this occassion we did not provide the level of service we are so widely reknowned for. We have always been proud of our ability to provide any visitor with a good nights sleep and understand your frustration at being woken unexpectedly. Although of little comfort to you now, we would like to assure you this has been quite seriously addressed to prevent any embarrassment in the future. We would also like to take the opportunity to reassure you that every care goes in to the training and nuturing of our staff, be they front of house, part time or management and we try our absolute upmost to instill manners, courtesy and effective communication, therefore it saddens us to hear that a member of our team may have addressed you inappropriately - we intend to drive home our continual training programme, reinforcing the need to deliver communication and services of a high standard and would like to apologise for any unintended offence that may have been caused.

I only hope that we are able to restore your faith in our ability to deliver quality accommodation, food and hospitality - that in the future we may be given a chance to impress on you just how passionate we are about high standards and delivering beyond our customers expectations

Should you have any concerns regarding your stay with us that you wish to discuss further I would be more than happy to oblige at your conveninece, either via telephone or email

My most sincere thanks once again

If you are looking for a place to get your head down after a boozy night then this is pretty ideal, however with Weatherspoons been directly below we found it very noisey late into the night, and early hours.

It's very centrally located and there isn't really much choice in Kings Lynn and this is probably the better option in the centre. There is plenty of local parking however it is all public, pay per use parking and can be quite expensive.

The rooms were very standard of this type of hotel, they were clean and tidy and with all the standard facilities.

If you book be sure to ask about the location of your room, we were told there are rooms at the other side of the hotel where you are isolated from the noise of the pub below.

Room Tip: Some rooms suffer from noise of the pub below, be sure to ask for a room away from this is you are l...

The hotel is ideally situated for the corn exchange theatre. Just stayed for 1 night after watching a show. Staff very friendly and efficient. Would definately stay again. The only thing that didn't appeal to me were the frosted windows.

stayed for one night with my daughter we were visiting Sandringham House the next day which was 15 mins from Kings Lynn. Room was clean but tired looking really in need of a re-vamp !!!! We arrived at lunch time but check in was at 1.30 parked in the market which cost 4.50 needed to pay for another hour at 5pm but found that I should have parked on the long stay carpark behind Barclays would have only cost about £3 till 8am next morning.
Weatherspoons is below so food ok and reasonable as well as drink if u fancy a few pints!!
Room could have done with aircon it was very stuffy and window opened a crack for a minute the closed itself!! We stayed mid week so not as noisey as weekend, shops close by and restraunts. OK for a stopover for one night or if you are going on the drink seemed popular with contractors. Thouroghly recomend the buffet chinese in the market place it was excellent.
