I first stayed at the sister Hotel (Kings Langley) nearly 9 years ago in early November when I decided to stop on after a conference and sought alternative accomodation , rather than stop on at the over-priced and not very impressive hotel which our group had booked into.
I found the K L by chance after walking up Westcliff Rd. . I was well impressed with the value for money that the hotel offered and spent an enjoyable 3 days there. Three years ago , I decided to re-visit Bournemouth at short notice for a holiday and on telephoning the Kings Langley, was dismayed to be told that it was full. However, I was offered The Riviera and have been stopping there for a fortnight in september ever since.For the last two years , I have also booked in over christmas and new year and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The hotel gives excellent value, the rooms are kept spotlessly clean and the food is far better than some five star hotels I have dined in. John and his family run the hotel in a very relaxed and friendly manner which permeates down to all the staff. This also engenders a sense of friendliness and cameraderie amongst the guests, several of whom have been visiting for many years.I have seen a review on here that says this is a hotel for old people. I would say that undeniably quite a few older people stop there but when they first started going they were 20 , 30 or even 40 years younger, so actually they have grown old together and grown old with the hotel.I will be visiting the Kings Langley for 6 days quite soon and am already booked in to stop at The Rivieria in September and over Christmas and the new year
