“Nice Central Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Stayed 2 nights at the Kilford Arms on a voucher. Overall it was near the Castle and shops and did not need the car to get around. The rooms are clean and basic. Had breakfast on the 2 mornings which was cold. Staff on the second morning did not seem interested in the customers. The evening meal was nice but not a great choice on the menu. Reception staff on check in were very polite.

I stayed here one night (14/04/2014). Room was clean and useful for my needs (a place to sleep after a day of sightseeing). Was a little strange getting to the room after 11:00, which is the only real reason I didn't score higher (plus it's not a four seasons). I wasn't looking for a high end hotel, just a clean, quiet, safe place to sleep for the night that wasn't going to break the bank. And for that the Kilford Arms fit the bill.

Hotel was fine except for window wouldn't close night clubs near by went on till 6:30am.
The white oak restaurant was little to be desired. Table not wiped. Veg microwaved (I'd say) they stay open till 9:30pm but start setting the tables around us for breakfast while we where eating. Clattering cups and saucers. We asked for a glass of wine. One red one white. Waiter gave us a mini bottle of each and said if we didn't want those ones he'll get another. Chef popping in and out of hotel in uniform. He was not impressed as I sent back the cauliflower because I can't eat cheese. It wasn't on the menu.

We (2 Adults + 2 Kids) stayed in the Kilford Arms recently for 2 nights. It is an excellently located hotel with great friendly staff. The Train Station is 5 minutes away & all the other tourist locations are close by.
