As a female traveller on my own, I stay here for business purposes about once every couple of months. The staff are just lovely (particularly Eve who always manages a smile and chat in the morning and who couldn't be more helpful), the food is delicious and the rooms are all of a high standard (even the single one). The only one slight niggle is that there can be a bit of road noise, but nothing that ear plugs won't solve if you are happy to wear them. All in all though this is a great hotel to stay in as a group, couple or on your own - the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the bar very non threatening (for a single traveller). Wifi is available downstairs but coverage is patchy upstairs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A warm welcome, fine home cooked fare and traditional rural hospitality await you ... The King's Head free house is a traditional Four Star Georgian coaching inn situated in the historic downland village of Hursley, just south of Winchester in Hampshire. We offer a warm welcome and traditional rural hospitality to rival all other inns and hotels in Winchester. The village of Hursley is most well known for its strong associations with the family of Oliver Cromwell; it is for this reason that it is believed The King's Head originally gained its name. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and cheerful environment for locals and visitors alike in which to enjoy locally sourced ales, fine wines, home-cooked food, or even a night or two in one of our carefully restored hotel rooms. 'There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or Inn' Samuel Johnson ... more less
