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.

We had dinner tonight, food was excellent, great flavor and hot. Our server was Rose and she was the very best. She was spot on with service and there with any questions and help. Great young lady, she will go a long ways in what...ever career she picks.More

The room was spacious, clean and well furnished, modrrn amenities with some pasttime character. Toiletries provided were of quality, as were the pod coffee, teas and chocolates in the room. There may have been fruit but the delicious chocolates fill my memory. The staff were...all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was worth the price of the room alone - almost! Fabulous and with an extensive choice and everything freshly prepared. I will always stay here when I visit Kingston.More

My family and I stayed at The Queen's over the Christmas holiday and we could not have felt more at home in this charming pub, dinning room and 10-bedroom boutique hotel. The breakfast spread in the morning always set us up for the day ahead...with the full English my sons' preferred choice. Eleanor, Anna, Jay, Felix, Holly and Sylvia were such warm, friendly hosts and never skimped on looked after us even during the busy festive period. The team was very flexible in accommodating us and were instrumental in extending our stay when we needed to. May I also add checking in and checking out was a breeze, The Queen's Head team are super-responsive on email, and we provided us with parking for our rental car. All in all, a delightful stay.More

We stayed and ate here on a Monday night, so it was understandably quiet (but not dead either). Staff on check in were great and the room was comfortable and clean but may be a little tired in places (had some Victorian characteristics in places)....For dinner I had the fish pie ( made in a Jamie Oliver style), which was the best I’ve ever had in a pub. It’s worth going just for that! Service was great, food was lovely. Slightly annoyingly the chalk boards were advertising a third off real ale and wine on Monday nights, which did not make its way on to the bill. When I asked, the discount was applied even though apparently we had ordered the wrong sort of wine ?? (Discount doesn’t apply to bottles of wine that we also serve by the glass - my bad, I should have checked before ordering our bottle rather than just reading the boards). Breakfast was also extremely good. Overall very enjoyable and good value for money. We will definitely stay again. Did I mention the Fish Pie ?!!More

Went today for a Sunday Roast with the family. Amazing food, HUGE portions and great service along with a lovely ambience. I had the roast chicken, you get a whole leg and breast. Our daughter had the beef and said it was the best meat...she’d ever eaten and my husband had the pork, which he demolished without saying a word through his meal. All in all, a lovely afternoon with delicious foodMore

Visited this pub for Sunday lunch, we were amazed by the quality of the food and level of service, we were looked after by Eleanor who couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful, it was a really pleasurable experience. Looking forward to the next visit.

What a lovely experience from check in to check out! This place is a little gem! Needed somewhere to stay near a wedding we were going to at Hampton Court. We were really looked after as soon as we arrived. The decor is so cool...and the ambiance is spot on. Lovely, helpful staff, amazing breakfast & coffee, cute comfy, spotlessly clean room with lovely touches like artisan choccies, coffee machine/teas/water included in the room rate and AND a mini bottle of fizz and bottle of beer in the mini bar! (Fresh milk in a mini glass bottle too). Lovely shower and toiletries, easy parking, such a comfy bed. Great value for money!More

We stayed here for a weekend so we could visit Kew gardens and Hampton Court Palace. Its difficult for me to rate this place because most was great but some not so good. On arriving here we were greeted and checked in by a very...friendly young man, he offered to take our bags when he showed us to our rooms. He explained how to work everything like the coffee machine and the great air conditioning which was a god send due to the hot weather. He was very knowledgeable of the area and took the time to talk to us. The breakfasts were delicious and we were served by a young girl on 2 of the morning who she was very pleasant and helpful. On our last morning a young man served our breakfast. The beds were comfortable with lovely crisp clean sheets. The shower was great with plenty hot water and lovely white fluffy towels. Toiletries are shared so I didn't use them. The free mini bar was an added bonus. The room had everything you needed for a short stay (Hair dryer-Iron-Ironing Board and a safe) Now the negatives: No shelf in the bathroom to put anything but we could live with that. Although the inside of the shower was clean the skirting around the shower and bathroom was very dirty with a lot of dust. The carpet was filthy so we kept our shoes on. I dropped a sweet that rolled under the bed and because I couldn't access it I pulled the bed and OMG! there was about 10 years of dust and debris under the bed - I was gob smacked! The difference in colour was unbelievable. What a let down by housekeeping! Its a good job it was our last morning or else it would have put me off staying. Management need to be aware of this and housekeeping trained to do their job better or given more time to do a better job. The manager did not check us out or I would have mentioned it to him, the guy who served our breakfast checked us out. We stayed in room 6More

Stayed for one night for an event in Kingston. Absolutely fantastic stay, room had everything we needed and more. Spotlessly clean, beautiful decor and complementary drinks in the mini fridge. We had lunch and a beautiful breakfast the next morning. The staff were so friendly...and welcoming, they really are a credit to the place. It felt like a home from home. Will definitely be back.

We have stayed at the Queens Head on several occasions and each visit never disappoints. The rooms are lovely, great shower and very comfortable bed. A nice touch this time was complimentary drinks including a bottle of beer and Prosecco as well as tea and...coffee in our room. The breakfast is very good which includes a full English and a lot of other hot breakfast options as well as cereal and buffet options. The Manager Stuart and his staff all work hard to make you feel welcome. Thanks again, we will return.More

We stayed here for two nights and had a fabulous stay. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. The complimentary beer and wine was a nice extra, as were the good quality teabags, coffee bags and chocolates. Lovely large shower and top notch shower, shampoos...etc provided. The breakfast choice was good and we actually ate her 3 times (lunch and two dinners), the food was so good. Helpful pleasant staff, what more could you want. Room to rear of pub for 3 vehicles, although space limited if you have a larger type car. We will definitely return to the Queens Head if we are up this way again. Really good value for money given location.More
