Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The inn is in a good location for flights from Luton and in a very nice neighbourhood but I think standards have dropped somewhat since these photos were taken. The staff were quite friendly, the bar was very dark and the food was nothing to write home about. Our room was in the annex so we had no sound problems, plus it was a Tuesday so probably not much going on anyway. It was supposed to be a de luxe twin bedroom but I would say it wasn't much above basic although we did have tea and coffee provided. The bathroom was a wet room but the sink was very close to the door so there wasn't much room to dry yourself off after showing, especially as the whole floor was soaked. I don't think we'd stay here again despite it's location but probably pay a bit more for one on the airport grounds, especially as there was no breakfast served at all.

The room was relatively comfy and cheap. Stairs were quite interesting as were slopes in floors. We had a reasonable night's sleep but it was so noisy. Noise from pub, from people going in and out of rooms and really loud noise from plumbing in other rooms. Owners should really consider putting a handle in shower cubicles. Nearly slipped when it was wet. Reasonable room but don't go if you need quiet to sleep.

Stayed at The King William with my partner for one night as we were attending a wedding at The White Horse so it was ideal location for us.

As we were going to a wedding and would not get back to late, I contacted The King William, the gentleman on the phone was very accommodating despite the hotel being fully booked the night before and checkout time being 11am, the rooms were cleaned first and we were able to check in to our rooms at 11:30 and got told the code to get in as we would be very late in. Very grateful to the staff for this.

The room had comfy beds and nice walk in shower.
Overall, the hotel was great for our one night stay and the staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here both before and after our trip to the Balearics and both visits were just perfect! Our double room wasn't enormous but it was large enough and comfortably furnished with all you could require for an overnight stay.
The pub it is a part of is an absolute delight - a traditional pub on the village green with a large, dog-friendly beer garden and a fantastic range of beers and spirits. The breakfast was wonderful and so was our evening meal, the chef has a real flair for spicy dishes!
All the staff in both the pub and hotel were so friendly and helpful, I really can't recommend the King William highly enough if you are transitting through Luton airport, unbeatable value for money. We will certainly be returning!

I found the King William online when I was looking for accommodation for a hen weekend. This ticked all the boxes becuase they had rooms, a bar, and a party space so we were able to base our weekend around the hotel. I first contacted Sam and she was really lovely and helpful. The price is so reasonable so I didn't know what to expect, but from the moment we arrived I knew we had made the right choice. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfy and decorated lovely. The ensuite shower/wet rooms were amazing. The staff looked after us so well, big thanks to Ben who literally made our weekend and catered to whatever we needed. The food was really tasty and so reasonably priced. We had a vegan and Ben and everyone went out of their way to get vegan options for her and it was so appreciated.

Sam suggested a cocktail masterclass as part of our party and it worked well, big thanks to Kelsey and the cocktail team for the class the drinks setting our evening off on the right path!
We had the marquee which was separated from the pub and a great space for dinning and drinks, but in the end we joined the main pub for the party becuase the locals and everyone were just so nice and welcoming and we had the best night doing karaoke.
Big thanks to knobby too, we hope we didn't break you.

If you're looking for somewhere to go to stay/eat/drink I would pick this place in a heart beat.
Thank you so much to everyone who made our weekend the best possible weekend we could ha e hoped for.
Cant wait to come back,
Love Helen and the hens x

Staff were really friendly and I'd stay here again for the price. Room was clean, small but spacious enough and the bed was comfortable - though not the most sturdy. My only issue was that the room smelled badly of frying from the pub kitchen and the air freshener used to cover it, seemed to make it even less pleasant. I got used to it eventually and it probably won't affect all the rooms. Pub downstairs served fairly good food and a decent pint.

Perfect stay before morning flight

Liked · One night stay before our morning flight. Great location, just 5 minutes drive from long stay car park. Room was spotless! Amazing smell from the minute we have walked in, complimentary toiletries, tea, coffee and biscuits have been provided. Comfy bed, very warm room. Pub was not too crowdy so we enjoyed cheeky little drink right before closing up. Good communication with the owner. I have informed her we will be checking in very late and she have make sure I have all needed details to get into the property after reception in closed. Parking just outside the property, free of charge. Quiet, residential area. We will definitely come back again before our next trip.

Booked with family & friends as had a family event else were. All rooms on the ground floor which was great for us with young children. Although the bathrooms/wet rooms did have a damp smell, this could be overlooked as the rooms were all comfortable, 5 adults & 4 children all slept well, beds were very comfortable. Ate breakfast there (served from9am) which was really nice and well presented. Will happily stay again should need arise.

Smelly. Dirty. Noisy. Chavvy, so chavvy. Full of coke dealers and tracksuits. Kitchen extractor unit is outside first floor windows so rooms smells of grease, zero food hygiene as manager was carrying a toddler round whilst serving food and going in and out of kitchen. No running water all evening but pub still open and so much noise right next to rooms. Awful, should be shut down. Anybody who likes their stay here is tapped or a coke dealer.

Awful just awful. Room 9 with a marquee completely blocking the window!! Could not open window and obviously a fire hazard! Such a shame to block out that fantastic view! Classed as luxury room but no hairdryer or towel rail. Toilet paper gets wet on the floor as no holder.Food tasteless..big fat chef wandering about no apron no gloves. Twice our cokes were flat. We decided to change room hoping it would be better..it was OK until housekeeping knocked loudly at 10.40am shouting HOUSE KEEPING!! check out was 11am. As we left the room was accused of not paying for it however we had paid the night before along with our breakfast.
Breakfast slopped down in front of us (eventually when we had found someone to order as noone around to assist you)..awful fried greasy. This could be so much better as the location is super. Such a shame..

Hello how can we reach you from central london and also the airport.
Answer from kingwilliam2016
Luton, United Kingdom
From the airport the only way to reach us is by taxi. However phone for one, do not get one from the rank. I recommend Go Cars 01582 404040. From London you must get a train from St Pancras to Luton Airport Parkway Train Station. Again I recommend you call a taxi when you arrive to get to us from the station. I hope this has been helpful
Answer from kingwilliam2016
Luton, United Kingdom
