After searching on the net for a Hotel in Bungay I came across the Kings Head and Queens Jules. The home website made it look a perfect choice for a pleasant place to stay overnight while seeing "Pure Floyd" at the Fisher Theatre. At £85.00 including breakfast I thought that this was acceptable for a Saturday night and the picture of the rooms on the website convinced me that I had made a good choice. After all they claim to have been on Channel 4 "Four in a bed"
O how very wrong I was! As soon as I entered the Pub/Hotel I knew I had made a terrible mistake. The décor was tired and looked neglected and the stench coming from winding stairs to the 3rd floor room was very off putting to say the least ! The owner said that the drains were blocked. Once in the room it was nothing like the pictures on the web site and that smell was following us into the room. The owners answer was "I can put some bleach down the drains"
We left and were very lucky to get the last room at The Castle Inn just down the road. What a difference! very clean and friendly and the room was amazing, So if I were you give the Kings head a miss and go for the Castle Inn you wont be sorry !!
