Stayed here for the night with my partner and son in a family room. I wasn't keen on the bed in our first room so asked at reception if there was a chance we could change rooms. It was no trouble for someone to show us all the available rooms until we found a more comfortable bed. The rooms were...

Very clean and tidy and the staff were friendly and helpful. Bags of on site parking. Lovely courtyard in the middle of the building. They allow dogs, which is great. Double bed was two singles, which is common in hotel rooms but one of the beds was slightly lower than the other. The mattress was visibly lumpy but very surprisingly...

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel I am sorry if there was a problem with the Wi-Fi during your stay.

Great hotel for a mini family stay-cation. Hotel staff were lovely, facilities were nice and clean and the breakfast included in the price was made nicely with local produce (full English, veg alternative, porridge cereals etc). The hotel (free) car park was more than ample for the guests and the communal areas were always staffed. The heating was on all...
