“Kings Head Wimborne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Stayed 2 nights B&B in early May. Good location in centre of Wimborne. Rooms were very clean, but the one we were given was at the back above the kitchens, so we had a noisy extractor fan running out to a vent pipe which was next to our window, this would start at 06.30hrs for breakfast, don't know when it stopped as we were out all day, in the evening it didn't stop until 22.00hrs.
The rooms are a bit dated and in need of refurbishment but for the price very reasonable, the food was very good - we even ate there both evenings, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
We wanted to go to Poole & Bournemouth and found that instead of driving and paying parking we got an all-day rover ticket for the bus. The bus stop was right near the hotel and you could get to both on a round trip either way - very economical and hassell free.

We stayed for 1 night, Great location in the centre of Wimbourne. Food was excellent, staff very professional and welcoming. Rooms were clean and quite big, the bed was the really comfy. The only thing was the creakie floorboards in our room.(Sorry to the people below) But overall the hotel was very good value for money.

Stayed at this hotel for second time this week (may 2013)
although the general appearance of the hotel is Tired and in need of updating it is clean and well run
( I was told that a major renovation will take place later this year)
The rooms are clean and good size)
the hotel is placed in centre of wimbourne on the main street so some traffic noise can be experienced if you are in the front part of the hotel, wimbourne is quiet at night so the noise is not sufficient to keep you awake.
The staff are very friendly and helpful
the food is of a good standard for the price
This hotel is good value for what you pay

Room Tip: If you need a quiet room make sure to tell the reception and they will make effort to give you a bet...

Stayed for 5 nights B&B and evening meals. Found staff to be very helpful, polite and professional. The room i stayed in was clean on arrival as you would expect. Would stay there again if in the area.

Reception very helpful, served a good pint of beer in bar, room itself was average, good choice for breakfast but coffee could have been more plentiful. Car parking is a real problem at this hotel and needs sorting out. The car park is much too small and inaccessible and I suspect is used by non residents of the hotel. Wimborne Minster has a good range of restaurants so eating out isn't a problem. Hotel felt in need of a refurbishment but was generally clean and warm. Over the bath Shower had one of those cheap curtains that seem to get blown toward you once the shower is running. Would have been disappointed if I'd taken my wife there but OK for a business trip.

My wife and I often have Sunday lunch in the Kings Head in Wimborne Square. The food is always good and excellent value for money! The staff are really kind but theres just not enough of them and this often leads to slow service. Last week they were so busy are food went cold waiting for condiments.
The restaurant and bar decor is dated and tired looking in areas but clean. The bar is also sensibly priced with quite a good selections of wine.
