Positive Reviews

Historic property has been carefully modernized.

The building this hotel resides in was constructed during the 18th century and the architecture retains much of the charms of the period. However, that doesn’t mean it lacks modern conveniences. Visitors to the property can easily see that owners have taken care to preserve the original character while bringing the property up to modern standards.

Quiet location with comfortable rooms.

The Kings Head Hotel is located on the market square in Masham, which allows it to be a stone’s throw from many amenities. Despite its location, many people find their stay to be a quiet one and are able to easily rest in the spacious guestrooms.

Hotel sees a lot of repeat visitors.

There are a lot of little things about this hotel that add up to create a great stay that many people come back to repeat. Among the highlights are clean rooms, modern fixtures in the private bathrooms, and the picturesque surrounding landscape.

Negative Reviews

Onsite food could be improved.

Menu choices at the hotel’s restaurant focus mainly on standard pub fare, which is alright but not overly impressive or memorable.

Some staff members are not overly welcoming.

Interactions with the staff at this hotel are not always pleasant. While not every employee is hard to deal with, several of the people working at Kings Head Hotel are apathetic and not very polite, which can result in slow and otherwise poor service.

Guestroom windows have issues.

Several people who have stayed at the Kings Head Hotel have reported the windows in the individual rooms are hard to open and close. This creates hot rooms during the day when windows won’t open and chilly rooms at night for windows that won’t close.
