“Excellent Hotel & Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Stayed here overnight, staff very welcoming especially the Manager who could not have been more friendly and helpful. Offered us extra water in the room, which was overlooking the courtyard garden. Lovely to go into this hotel and see a warming fire in the reception area. The room was very clean and just what you expect.

The hotel was in walking distance to the town and river and Kingston Upon Thames is a very safe place to be in especially at night.

We hope to be visiting very soon.

Room Tip: Go for a courtyard view room.

A friendly reception always guaranteed every time from staff who certainly seem to like their work.
The rooms are of reasonable quality, though they could do with some modernising, they are clean. Net curtains for the rooms that are overlooked, or face into the courtyard are needed, unless you want to have the main curtains closed all the time. Without these there is no privacy. Also the pillows should be replaced with at least one soft per side, the present ones are hard foam.
Whatever else it does feel like home, especially as I stay there often. Nice touches include free wifi and a bottle of water in the room.

Well this hotel is on my doorstep so I do not get to stay at it. However they have a restaurant that they advertise and so we paid it a visit.

I wish I hadnt. The food was clearly cooked out of pre packed food probably from one of the large catering supply companies. The dining room had no atmoshpere at all it was so obviously a well used hotel.

The staff tried hard but not hard enough. I have never been given the bill before receiving dessert before!

Unlike Arnie I will not be back !

We were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff, and really have no problems about our one night stay.
The room was clean, well decorated and quiet. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was good.
The dog enjoyed the stay too!

From the minute we stepped in to the hotel we felt important. Warm building (very cold day) and an even warmer welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.
Pleasant room with all the usual amenities. Excellent food served on hot plates in the airy restaurant.
Definitely on our 'to be visited again' list.

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel & I was pleased with the standard again.
The room I had was clean & tidy with excellent amenities such as a fridge which most other hotels lack, there was also a complementary bottle of water.
The bathroom was clean but some of the paintwork was peeling, it didn't stop me enjoying the hot shower though! Plenty of towels provided as well as the necessary toiletries.
I joined a friend for dinner & the meal did not disappoint. The lamb shank was lovely, the meat fell off the bone. My friend enjoyed her duck dish immensely. It was nice to be able to try something different.
As usual the staff were attentive especially the lovely Manager who always makes sure her guests are well catered for & nothing is too much trouble. I had asked for a morning paper but had just missed the delivery to my door so the receptionist gave me his!!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are nice

The Kingston Lodge Hotel is ideally situated for enjoying Kingston Town centre which is a mile away and is very close to Richmond Park.

My wife and I stayed for one night on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis. On arrival we found that the bed in the room we had been assigned was very small, perhaps only 4ft wide. So we phoned reception to ask if there was an alternative we were bowled over to be offered a suite at no extra cost!

The suite isn't the plushest we have ever stayed out but had everything you could wish for and the bed was bigger, but only 4.6ft at a guess.

The only problem with the room and our whole experience was the noise from the busy road outside. It really was extremely noisy as the Hotel is next to one of the main routes into Kingston. I think the major problem is the lack of triple glazing as the double glazing just didn't dampen the sound from outside.

However, this was the only problem as the staff have to be the nicest and most friendly we have encountered at a hotel. The young receptionist, barman and restuarant manager are all delightful and clearly enjoy their jobs which is a credit to them and the management at the hotel.

We ate dinner there and whilst the food is all rather basic hotel fayre, it is good quality and represents great value and the cost of wine is also acceptable. The cheese board is particularly good.

The buffet breakfast was a joy as well and for once the scrambled egg wasn't all watery so capped off a nice stay.

My recommendation is to obtain a room away from the road and also take a quick walk down the road to the Albert Pub for a couple of pints.
