I had wanted to stay near Llangennith for a few nights with my son so I booked into the Kings head.
The rooms were good quality and comfortable.

The down side was the cleanliness of the rooms - there was more sand on the floor than on the beach when we arrived. I got hold of a brush the next day and the amount of sand and animal hairs brushed up was horrible.
The staff were not a happy bunch and we only met one member of staff that had any customer skills.
The food in the Kings head Inn was not good. The food arrived three quarters of an hour after ordering on the first night and was greasy. They had run out of ketchup and just said sorry.

The breakfasts for the three mornings, we suffered it, consisted of over done and crispy egg, bacon like leather, tasteless sausages, cold beans and greasy mushrooms. My son tried something different every day to try to find something edible - sausage sandwiches - tasteless and greasy, Scrambled egg - looked like a leather egg pat.
We also shared the eating room with a menagerie of cats and dogs.

So thanks to them for spoiling a few days and taking a lot of money for such poor unclean and miserable a time.

Room Tip: Don't stay there unless you want a holiday with your pet.

An amazing room, under floor heating and lovely fittings etc the pub could do with updating but the food is really nice with a big choice. Very light room with big window and a shower room to die for. Great location for walking and was told I can bring the dog next time to.

I would say its a little expensive for what it is, not so much the room the Pub and the car park need attendance

This was the first time I had been down to the King's Head after rave reviews from friends. The room was incredible, the bathroom was something I'd expect to be paying a lot more for!! Super clean and very homely. The receptionist was really friendly and the staff the next morning at breakfast were all too willing to help. We had supper in the pub,I had the thai green curry and would honestly go and stay there again just for that. Overall a friendly place, delicious food and a definite new favorite. Thank you all for your warm welcome.

Dear EDavies508,
Thank you for the fabulous review. The Green Thai Curry is delicious, you will have to come back on curry night (Every Tuesday) when we have over 10 home-made curries on offer.
Hope to see you again soon,
All @ The Kings Head

I arranged a 2 night Living Social stay 3 couples to celebrate my 66th birthday. We all were very impressed with the quality of our Deluxe rooms all of which were a good size, clean & well furnished.
Breakfasts were excellent with a very good choice. We ate in the pub on both nights & again the quality & portions of food was excellent. Food was complimented with a great choice of ales & wines. Locally produced Gower Gold beer was superb.
Staff were all very pleasant & accomodating.
A great location with good, honest service & offerings.
Thoroughly recommend

This was the first time that we'd taken our dog with us on a holiday break - and when looking for a 'dog friendly' hotel my concern was that we would find one with rooms like kennels, with flagstone floors and smelling like wet animals!

How wrong was I!

Nothing could be further from the truth as far as the Kings Head is concerned. The 'pet rooms' with their en suite bathrooms are large, airy, warm, spotlessly clean and - with their super king giant beds - simply splendid. They are also set a little to the rear of the pub - so no noise.

The welcome and ongoing friendliness is outstanding and the food - locally sourced and produced - is first class pub fare plus.

Whatever your purpose for a visit to the Gower - stay here. Cannot recommend highly enough, this is a gem of a find and a perfect base from which to explore the area....with staff and locals only too keen to get the best from your stay.

Our first visit - but it won't be our last,
