“We had a great time!”
Reviewed 12 June 2011

Our room was clean, tidy & spacious. Jules and TIm were fantastic hosts and even gave us a bottle of bubbly to celebrate our first anniversary which was totally unexpected but very thoughtful and very much appreciated. They really did go over and above to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible.
The bar meal was very tasty, very reasonably priced and of good portion size. Breakfast lived up to expectations, again being of good portion size, excellent quality and with properly poached eggs!
All the staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed June 2011, travelled as a couple

Glad you enjoyed the stay (and the bubbly). Look forward to hearing the CD when it is made an really enjoyed the impromptu jam session we had with you and some of the other guests for the Bungay Bash.

We had a lovely 1 night stay here, our room was very nicely decorated, all bright white linen, and clean bathroom - the hosts were really friendly and we had a long chat in the bar - the bar food was great - Jules' sticky toffee tart was dreamy - but very deadly if you're trying to loose weight! We were quite miffed we'd eaten at the function we'd attended that night - could have had a lovely meal at the bar - I know that this hotel has had bad ratings, but I think this couple are really doing their best to turn it around - we will definitely stay here again - I hope they go from strength to strength and that they have great success with the Kings Head and the Queens Jules!!!

Room Tip: Very central, easy to find

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting family.
The owners Tim & Jules were fantastic, friendly and hardworking. I had read reviews dated before November when they took over and was somewhat unsure as to what we would find. I have to say that it does not sound like the same place. As said Jules and Tim are friendly, helpful and work really hard. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was lovely. It is a very old building and they are improving it as fast as they can.
They made our stay fun and enjoyable and really can't do enough for you. If I could think of any suggestions to make it even nicer, it would be maybe to have a bottle of still water in the room as we forgot to take up water and as the building is so old we were reluctant to drink water from the bathroom tap as unsure if it was mains water.
We would definitely stay again and wish them all the best as they deserve to do well.

12 of us stayed here for a family wedding, so basically took over the place. Tim & Julie were very generous in looking after us all, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were clean, comfortable & well presented, although some showers could do with up grading. Breakfast was very enjoyable but no marmalade on the tables! Hosts restoration of this ancient building is well on its way.

Glad you all enjoyed your stay. We have noted the comment on marmalade - this is now a standard part of the breakfast menu. Full refit of the showers may take a little longer but we are refreshing the shower heads to make sure they are as as good as possible

We were welcomed with a kind smile and friendly conversation. The owners went way beyond the call of duty to meet our needs. The hotel is really clean and I would definitely recommend staying there. Breakfast was really tasty. The owners are really dedicated to making your stay a happy one. Next time we are in that part of the country we will definitely be staying at the Kings Head Hotel. Tim and Julie - lovely to meet you and thanks for a lovely stay from Sharon & Hugh xx

We stayed here for the Bungay Marathon - hosts not only printed out maps to help us get to the marathon staging area, but cooked us an "off-menu" pasta dinner, out of hours per our specific preferences, also added porridge to the breakfast menu as a special request... They allowed us to extend check-out time to be able to use the shower and even took us to the train station, allowing us to enjoy some chill-out time in the bar before we left!

Despite there being a live music event on our nights stay, this in no way impeded sleep - in fact I had one of the better nights rest I've had in a while! The owners seem to be doing their utmost to develop and improve the pub/hotel on a budget and within listed building requirements. I would happily stay here again and gladly recommend it to friends and family.
