Well Cleaned.

The strong impression is that The King's Head is an informal, welcoming pub/hotel of character, where three guest rooms and their en-suite facilities have been shoe-horned into the old building. The rooms are very well cleaned, spotlessly presented, and

Negative Reviews


Coffee served with breakfast was found to be very weak.

Intrusive Light.
