What should and could be a good small hotel was spoilt by poorly trained staff. The tone was set on arrival when our presence was ignored by a manager who instead of welcoming us and checking us in shoved a registration form in front of a member of the bar staff and brusquely instructed her what to do. She was clearly embarrassed and apologised to us later. What followed was bar staff who were unable to make the prominently advertised cocktails and one staff member who did not know what a shandy was. Despite going in to the dining room at the reserved time we had to ask for menus, then ask to order. We were in the restaurant over two hours without any explanation. When at last retiring to the bar we were told it was closing st 10.20!!!!! We protested and got a drink but I believe it then closed at 11. Not much of a service for residents.
Our room at the front suffered from early morning street noise on the Friday but was quieter on the Saturday.
Chipping Camden is a nice little town and the Kings is a pleasant hotel with issues that could so easily be remedied
