We had room 10 which was a lovely room, overlooking the town square. The bed was comfortable and the room very clean and tidy, and... More

Stayed at the Kings Head in Wimborne as an onward journey stay for 1 night, it was so good we booked for our return trip back. The rooms are spacious & clean and about the most comfortable hotel bed we have slept in. The evening meal was also superb, and the staff very helpful & friendy

Busy welcoming town inn. The room however was small and very overheated. Even with the radiator off, the pipes ensured that the windows needed to be fully open. The night was then punctuated with noisy guests on the street, traffic, bin collection, etc and the lovely clock at the Minster chiming every 15 mins. Easily the worst nights sleep I've... More
