We have just returned from The Kings Arms Hotel, firstly we were greeted warmly and staff most helpful. Our room was clean fresh and certainly no complaints, beautiful linen and towels. Quiet and peaceful, even though plenty of Friday night people enjoying a warm evening on the terrace.
We had a good meal although slightly boring salad (lots of lettuce) accompanying steak and frites. Busy bar but we chose to have our meal there.
Breakfast was rather a disappointment, we joined relatives at the table and were surprised at the mugs on the table which seemed not inkeeping with the style of Kings Arms. Nobody came to take a breakfast order for nearly half an hour and we helped ourselves to juice and fruit; one man had helped himself to a very full bowl of overflowing strawberries and these were not replenished even though there was still a long time to go before breakfast would be finishing. We waited and eventually my husband had to move out to approach a waitress to ask for tea or coffee, we were informed this was in a flask and I was brought tea to enjoy in the mug.
We were eventually asked about our breakfast order and a list was reeled off, my husband chose scrambled egg and mushrooms and I ordered tomatoes and mushrooms (expecting a reasonable portion) - I had one mushroom diced into minute pieces and 1 tomato cut into three - that was it. My husband's portion was a very small spoonful of egg and 1 mushroom again. Disappointing and that is all I can say but someone else we spoke to had heard about these small portions so it is obviously well known. Think the waitresses need a bit more training and awareness.
Apart from this we would stay again, we particularly liked the room and location and staff were helpful. It is slightly dangerous when moving from one location in the hotel to another because of the cars coming under the arch from the high street.
Definitely worth considering and despite the breakfast we enjoyed our stay.
