“The best hotel we've stayed in by far!”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

We've stayed here a few times now and each time the accommodation, staff, food, and service has been first class.

We stayed last week as a birthday treat from my husband, and we were lucky enough to stay in the feature cottage suite which is huge, with a lovely shower/wet room and a beautiful bath, sofa, king-size bed and chaise longe in the main room.

When we got there our room wasn't quite ready as we arrived just before 3pm but we were more than happy to have a wander around the village - but we were treated to a free drink of our choice in the bar, which is quiet and cosy. A brilliant start!!

Our package included dinner, which was just gorgeous - we both agreed it was the best meal we have had in a long time.

The room was so comfy and cosy, as well as being luxurious - we slept like logs! Breakfast was delicious and the chef was accommodating with our requests.

The staff were all so helpful and friendly, service at dinner and breakfast was very efficient which made the stay ever better.

We will be back!!!! :-)-

Have eaten in the main restaurant which is obviously more formal than the bar, however, I prefer eating in the bar as it has a cosy feel about it. The food is very good, and atmosphere is great. The waiters are professional, one in particular (Josh) is friendly and excellent. Will definately go back as I am fairly local and love eating in Chipping Campden and so this is one place to frequent time and time again.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in December 2012 whilst on mini moon via an internet deal on secret escapes. On arrival, there appeared to be no where to park but the hotel has a separate parking area for patrons at the rear. Our standard double was cosy and little snug but we did have a king sized bed. Our room faced the high street but we experienced no disturbance by way of traffic noise. Be aware of deliveries to hotel early if you do like to sleep. As the building is listed all windows are single glazed so we kept the curtains closed to keep the heat in. The curtains were also thick so no drafts. Bed comfy and very soft, sheets a very good quality cotton. As far as I could see, there were no lifts in the hotel so stairs only.

As part of our deal, we had a three course meal in the restaurant for one of our night's stay. Food was lovely and service prompt but we did eat early (6pm). Good selection of local produce but definitely check the menu first if dietary requirements apply. I'm not veggy but didn't see much in the way of non meat dishes. If eating here at weekends, booking is advisable as it got very busy when we were finishing and a few people were turned away as the restaurant was full booked. London prices apply here. Breakfast also great, good choice (both cooked and continental) together with good service in the same location as the restaurant.

As much as we had a great time here, I would recommend a deal if possible. On paying £262 for two people including welcome drink, three course meal on one night and two morning's breakfast, if normal rates had applied, our stay would have been about £450.

Room Tip: Note wheel chair access is limited and as the hotel is old, some floors are uneven, doorways low and...

We were really looking forward to our stay in Chipping Campden and the Kings Hotel looked ideal. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant on our 2nd night as we were at the RSC on the 1st evening.
The food is just excellent if a little slow in being served. Similarly the breakfast was lovely but a little chaotic in terms of service.
The senior staff need to provide a more mentoring role for the youngsters who are very willing but a little lacking in experience. Recruit a more experienced 'head waiter' type who can train on the job and provide a role model.

Room Tip: Choose a queen which we were upgraded to as we were booked in for 3 nights.

We decided to have dinner at this hotel whilst staying nearby in the town.
We were not disappointed. The ambience was lovely, staff friendly but not overbearing, food excellent. Thank you Chefs.
Should we visit the town in the future we out definitely stay here.

Booked in after the Kings was recommended to me, we were working at Campden BRI so made perfect sense as it was only five minutes away. Chipping Campden itself is beautiful, booking in was easy, staff were very friendly, the standard room I was in, was a little small but beautifully decorated and furnished, my colleagues room was as well done out but much larger, but that's the luck of the draw.

We also stayed at the hotel to eat as it was steak night which was very well cooked and reasonable priced. Breakfast was as you would expect, very well cooked and of very high quality. I would happily recommend the King hotel for business or pleasure.

We had a good stay here. Hotel's location is excellent in the centre of town. Stuff was welcoming. There is free private parking at the backyard of the hotel. One problem we had was with the water system of the bathtub, was possible to take a bath but couldn't take shower. The best thing was their restaurant. The food was excellent and the whole restaurant athmosphere was great. Because of the food I am going to overlook the shower problem and still give a full 5 star to this hotel. It is that good.
