“helpful staff well run”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

on arriving at the kings head it did look a little run down from the outside but once inside this was forgotten> very warm welcome from whom i think was the owner(not wearing a hotel shirt).
i was shown to my room which was lovely flat screen telly lovely huge bed and free wi fi.
i could have had a party in the bathroom it was that big.
dinner was fab lovely bottle of shiraz. and we had a good laugh with the girls behind the bar
breakfast was lovely cooked and served by the owner who made us feel at home
shame it was only one night

Room Tip: amazing beer garden such a sun trap

Booked into this hotel,online booking pictures looked good enough,Got there and first impressions when i pulled up were bad didint want to leave my car there let alone stay there,walked in and got looked at like we were aliens??Got shown to our room and from the moment the door was open i knew i was not going to stay here let alone sleep here,We both decided after 20 minutes to leave,Checked out with no charge,my girlfriend advised the lady who dealt with us that the room was very dirty and in a bad way,also mentioned that the pictures don't do the place any justice and the lady replied that they were pictures off the honeymoon suite,Poor advertising and False.Wouldn't recommened this place to anyone.Sorry but people need to be aware.

Room Tip: Not this one!!!

My partner and I stayed in the Kings Head Hotel because we had a band gig in the memorial hall. We booked in and decided to order lunch for ourselves and our 3 year old daughter. What was served up was great home cooked food. Plentiful and very well done. The staff also asked my daughter what she would like to eat despite what was on the menu. Our room had plenty of space and was very clean and comfortable. Another band member had had an absolutely marvelous room that was very well decorated and huge.... I think it was the bridal suite. Breakfast was also very good. All in all a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay :-)

Room Tip: Go for the bridal suite if you can !! :-D

Booked this hotel for a one night stay for a function in Dereham. The room was a very good size and clean with a large bathroom. There was plenty of storage in the room free WiFi and TV.
There was noise from the bar downstairs but that stopped at 10.30 when the bar shut. Some road noise as no double glazing but not too bad. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pub had a great garden and free parking very close to the centre of Dereham. Breakfast was good with choice of full English if you wanted it. The pub is in need of considerable TLC but if you look past that good value.

Myself and a friend called into the pub For a drink after watching a show in the new memorial hall up the road.
The 2 bar staff that where working (chatting to each other) seemed annoyed that we had disturbed their conversation and wanted a drink!
We both ordered a wine....... Very expensive...... And tasted sour.
I had one sip and my friend drank hers.
2 hours later my friend was sick, and continued to be sick for hours all through the night.
This could have been a coincidence?!
Either way, we will NOT be going back there.

Stayed at the hotel during a business trip. I was given a twin room (not a double as requested), which was located in the outhouse/extension next to the rear car park. The room suffered from a terrible draft, because there was a 2 inch gap between the floor and the bottom of the door. Also I had much difficulty locking/unlocking this.
Checked the beds - one bed had a duvet with a damp mark underneath - so I used this to stop the draft from coming into my room. The other bed was fine. Room was cold, despite turning the radiator to full and one of the windows looked like something from a Turkish prison.

I didn't use the shower as it needed a good clean - had quite a bit of mildew growing in it. Hotel was full so couldn't relocate and was only there for one night, so stuck it out. Overall, the whole room could really good do with a refurb as it was tired looking and looked like it was something from 1989.

Staff were very friendly though, the bar had a nice atmosphere and the food was very good too - all freshly cooked.

Wouldn't stay here again, because of the above points - but would come again for a drink and something to eat.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the outhouse buildings/annex next to the back carpark.

We arrived on a bank holiday Friday night and were checked in by very friendly and efficient staff. We had dinner in the bar that night which was very nice, again with great service. A good selection of wines by the glass and a couple of real ales to chose from. Breakfast was fresh, tasty and again served by friendly staff. One of our party asked if there were any yoghurts but there were not. When we left the dining room the waitress said she would pop out and get some later that day so we could have them the following morning. Breakfast the second morning was again fine but the one member of staff seemed a bit rushed off her feet.
It was therefore a shame that the room left a few things to be desired. On first appearance, it was clean and well appointed, if a little on the small side. The bed however was a small double which took some getting used to, the room was very warm and there was quite a lot of noise from the street at times through the night. As other reviews have mentioned, there is a nightclub nearby but this is no fault of the hotel.
There was also only one cup provided for the room's tea & coffee and the shower head was not fixed to the wall so you had to hold it above your head.
That said, our friends said there rooms were more spacious and comfortable so I think we had maybe got the short straw.
All in all, a nice hotel with great, friendly staff
