Positive Reviews

And the Dog Came Too

Guests found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, going well beyond the call of duty, and they could not be faulted in any way, special mention was made of “The handsome young 16 year old”. The dog was happy too, having been welcomed with treats and water bowls.

Do Not Miss the Porridge

Guests loved the location and enjoyed a great breakfast as well as a really good evening meal. Another couple found this to be "Yorkshire hospitality at its very best" and commented on the “most amazingly decadent porridge” they had ever experienced Others really enjoyed the folk evening that was held during their stay.

Views and Value

The outside area where guests can sit and enjoy the environment and views is much appreciated. The location of the hotel is ideal for exploring the region, and the hotel offers very good value for money. Overall the Best Western Kings Head appears to meet with approval from its guests, with the standard of attention from the staff coming in for particular mention.

Negative Reviews

Tired and Small

The building seemed to be in a poor state of repair and lacks a lift The room was thought to be a bit “tired” and rather small. The bedroom was not very well lit, and one of the guests was disappointed to find that the bathroom was not equipped with a shower.

Earl Morning Problem

The food was thought to be not up to hotel standard. A couple who were not happy with the breakfast, finding it overcooked, left early. The erection of the market stalls at 4 30 am awoke guests and disturbed their sleep.

Parking Woes

There is limited parking space at the rear, however there is room at the front and the hotel has a disc available for the system in place.
