When I was a student at the Nautical College we were the first residents in the new accommodation block on Milton Road and the Kings Manor became our regular. We recently had a 40 year reunion and so I booked the Kings Manor. It has changed a lot over the years and all to the better. It is much extended and has a large leisure centre.
I like Best Western Hotels because they are all independently owned and managed so each is unique yet all share things in common so you know the standard you can expect.
My room was generously proportioned and overlooked the garden. It was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was a buffet that was well stocked.
Overall, I'd rate the hotel highly. The only negative was that we were asked to vacate the bar when it closed. There was a wedding on in the hotel so the only area to continue our chat was at reception. Wedding guests kept nipping out to smoke making this a cold area and in the end we all headed off to bed. Surely as guests we could have remained in the bar even if it was closed.
I'm sure I'll use the Kings manor again and hopefully long before the next 40 years pass by!More
