Positive Reviews

Excellent breakfast

Going by guest comments it seems that King's Highway fully understood that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Certainly to the guests, who mentioned that the breakfast served was varied and very comprehensive, containing everything they could possibly want.

Very spacious rooms

Many guests were quite impressed by the size of their rooms. They described them as being more like suites than standard hotel rooms. The small seating area with sofa seemed to be especially appreciated.

Discounted meals at the pub

Though it would be a good idea to confirm beforehand, it appears that the hotel has a long running policy of offering substantial discounts on meals at the Kings Highway Pub to overnight guests. Many guests mentioned being very pleased with this indeed.

Negative Reviews

Too cold in winter

A surprising number of guests travelling in the colder months mentioned that their rooms were much too cold for comfort. It seems that the heating is centrally controlled, with no ability to change temperatures in the rooms. It was speculated that the system is programmed to turn of entirely late at night, but this could not be confirmed.

Noise from the smoking area

It was mentioned that the smoking area outside the pub, was inconveniently located, since the noise from this area could be heard by those up in the rooms.

Some questions regarding cleanliness

While not universal, there were a fair number of guests who complained that their room was not properly cleaned before they checked in. They mention dust, dirty bathroom tiles and other problems. Many had to either ask for it to be re-cleaned, or do some spot cleaning themselves, to feel comfortable there.
