The Kings Head is a beautiful historic Grade II listed former coaching house ideally situated in the heart of Warrington's bustling town centre directly opposite Central Railway Station with regular services to Manchester & Liverpool and just 50 yards walk from the main bus station offering services to all of Cheshire's Attractions. Bank Quay Railway Station is only half a mile away and offers services to London, Birmingham, Chester and Scotland. The Halliwell Jones Stadium...home of the Warrington Wolves RLFC is just a short walk away and The Kings Head has become the hub for both home and visiting fans alike on matchdays generating a celebratory atmosphere for which Rugby League is synonymous. The pub itself boasts a generous walled beer garden which hosts popular live music events most weekends and the bar area is well appointed and spacious. The rooms, which have recently benefitted from substantial refurbishment, are simple, but clean and tidy. All boast a flat screen TV's and tea making facilities. All rooms are en-suite and the bathrooms too are all completely new with both a decent sized bath and a power shower. There is ample car parking both on site and within yards of the pub.

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.

stayed here for 1 night as my friend had a party in the function room. dont be fooled by the outside . this place is a little gem, the room was very spacious and clean, had everything needed, only fault was the room was at the front so very noisey. but can't be helped,staff very friendly, and chatty. came down for breakfast, and it was spot on nicest breakfast I've had in a long time . had their own car park which you had to go over the road and open the gates yourself but that didn't bother me as i could see my car from my room and it was locked in a secure carpark hotel was very close to town centre walking distance and the train stationis opposite . the function room was really nice too. this hotel was a great place to stay. i would definitely come back.

Photos show how the room was advertised and then what we walked into! very much misleading photos that they have of the hotel room expecting it to not be anything amazing with the rates of the rooms but looking at the photos of what their advertising their rooms at and the room it self, what we walked into is very different. Very much disappointed But also the amount of black mould which was on the window frame right underneath where we where sleeping I have multiple photos of the mould which is a health risk and myself found needing my inhaler in the night,as I suffer with asthema, the only part of the stay we did enjoy was the breakfast,but would not be staying again.

Staff very friendly and welcoming and great atmosphere. The locals were great company too. Traditional English breakfast was good. When I arrived was a bit of a farce in relation to key to my room was a long wait to check in properly while they tried to locate key to my room. Tables not very clean at breakfast doesn't take much to give 'em a quick wipe and keep the tables nice, clean and presentable for your guests. No replacement towels in bedroom. But the biggest disappointment and what I found absolutely astonishing was that I even had to ask for replacement toilet roll for my room but when I did ask during my final evening there the two young girls behind the bar seemed totally and completely disinterested!!! I got up very early in the morning and I asked a gentleman member of staff on duty for some toilet roll as I had run out in my bedroom and by this time I really needed to use the loo. There was no toilet roll left in the gent's customer toilets either... This guy on duty seemed to take an age just to get me a few bits of toilet roll from what I gathered was the ladies customer toilets then said that he was sorry, that's all they had and that they were expecting a delivery. I just said don't bother and went to buy some toilet roll from Asda round the corner. I mean a place providing accommodation to people and something that is a basic and an essential requirement like toilet roll they run out of... What??? Well it's a good job I didn't need to go for a number two in the middle of the night isn't it?!!! To be honest I have stayed at much worse places though. The Kings Head was handy as right directly opposite the main train station and as we're in a cost of living crisis it was all about saving pennies but to be honest with hindsight I should have forked out a bit more to stay at one of the local Travelodges. Shame I had to write a negative review because I liked Andy who runs the place, he was a good host and very friendly.

The pub is ideally located for the Central Station and Rugby ground and quite easy to find.Just follow signs for the Central St.Free parking is available on first come,first served basis behind the pub,next to the Polski Sklep next door. We paid £72 including breakfast which is great value locally with many rivals charging exhorbitant rates and for Warrington this is difficult to justify. We stayed here because i had to pick up my partner from Manchester Airport.Both only approx 13/14 miles away. Yes,the Pub is a tad noisy,busy and rough and ready but i got a warm welcome from a lovely blond girl who checked me in.We had Room 9 on the top floor which does insulate you from the noisy bar downstairs.Some folk on here complain about sleeping difficulties due to the noise of the bar and two function rooms adjacent on the ground floor.Good news was the music is turned off around midnight,so my suggestion is to watch a bit of TV and to try the local Indian which is rerrific just 350 yards away(Ozmi).i.e.come back late to the pub!! Its definitely not the Ritz but our room was clean,great hot shower and a very edible breakfast the next day.

Met some friends at Central Station pre match and this was the nearest pub. I think they must clear the main dining room of chairs as it was cavernous inside. Loud music and full of rugby fans. Heatwave and they now have an 'astro-turfed' area alongside the hotel/ pub with picnic bench seating so perfect for a pint outside. No complaints, suited us perfectly, ideal for the rugby.

Stayed for 2 nights and on the second I had to take sleeping tablets to be in with any chance of sleep and even then I was woken up by the fire alarm as some drunk had opened the fire door. The room was dated, dirty and beds were really comfortable. There was a stain on the floor by the bed and matching one on the mattress where someone had obviously thrown up. Cups were filthy, I left them to soak in the bathroom sink and they turned the water brown. The shower pulsed between hot, cold and off. The light for the sign shone straight into the bedroom where there were no curtains just a poorly fitted blind. The noise from the rowdy drunks outside went on until early in the morning and with single glazed windows we may as well have been trying to sleep on the pavement.o didn’t expect the Ritz for the price we paid but did expect it to be clean and have a decent nights sleep.

Stayed here one night on our way to Wales and it was awful. Very basic room with no furniture, no pictures on the wall, no full length mirror, and bar didn’t serve food, though we weren’t told in advance. Although the en suite was fairly newly refurbished, the shower was intermittent, coming on in bursts then going off, toilet seat loose, and shelf at 45degree angle. The windows were draughty and the orange lit up sign directly outside our window made the room very bright. There were just no niceties or comforts, like biscuits or nice bed covers. The pub itself is in a bit of a waste land and we felt a bit uneasy about leaving our car on the rough ground next door. The staff were very nice though and breakfast was good, though served in the Pizza place next door. Won’t be staying here again.
