Had a lovely stay in the Kingsley recently.
We booked a king size room, which I'd highly recommend! The room was clean and very spacious, the bathroom was among the nicest I've seen! Air con was a great help.
Two very minor areas for improvement we felt was firstly the service (both reception who didn't follow upon queries or answer phone and pace of waiting staff) and secondly price of the food in the restaurant didn't reflect what you got. Also on our first morning nobody explained the breakfast routine to us, so we didn't realise that the cereal and pastries were in a different area and there was confusion around tea,coffee and toast which meant we usually didn't get it until after we finished our fry.
The pool is lovely and very clean.
It's a great base for exploring. The price we got including breakfast was very competitive compared to other hotels in the area that didn't include breakfast. (This is what swayed me to stay!)
I'd definitely recommend it and stay again.
