3 night business stay.
The owner, Mr Stables collected us from the train station, he was really helpful & nothing was too much trouble.
Location is ideal ,easy walking distance to town centre for shops, pubs & eating out.
Our rooms were spotless & well thought out in terms of amenities & services, the WI FI was faster than mine @ home.
Breakfast was punctual & top quality.
I would not stay anywhere else locally now I've found this place, particularly as it's keenly priced too.

Me and two collegues stayed here for three nights and thought it was a wonderful B&B. The owner was so kind and accomadating, the rooms were clean, tidy and very well decorated, it felt more like being in a boutique hotel than a B&B. it is close enough to the center of Grantham so that you can easily go out for the evening but not so close that you have to deal with noise from drunken pub goers. The breakfast was superd especially the sausages and i feel lucky to have found such a nice place to stay while working in the area. I think it would also be a lovely place to stay for a romantic weekend with a partner. Definatly recomend it and definatly will go again if i am in that area. The website does not do it justice and the rooms are incredibly good value!!! Happy travels. x

The owner was very friendly and, overall, the standard of cleanliness was high BUT for a 4-star establishment I do not expect to have a plastic tub of butter spread on the breakfast table, complete with crumbs from where other guests had stuck their knives into the tub (let's hope they hadn't licked their knives, beforehand!). This wasn't a one-off, it was every morning, and I found this quite unhygienic and stopped using it. I would also suggest decanting the supermarket 'basic brand' items into other containers, as these also do not reflect the quality one expects from a 4-star guest house?

Room Tip: Ask the provider for a discount, they can only say no and they might just say 'yes' if they...

We stayed for three nights at The Kingston and found the whole experience to be very relaxed, friendly and informal. Our room was clean and well furnished with plenty of storage space. The location is great with all amenities within a few minutes walk. Would recomend as a base for seeing the area.
