    We stayed for a weekend in April. Good location, excellent service, food and accommodation. Staff very attentive and could not have been more helpful. Bed was so comfortable that we asked the housekeeper who supplied their pillows and ordered 5 for ourselves on the internet! River runs by the side of the hotel with nice walk down to the quay for boat trips etc.
    Only downside is parking which can be difficult, best if you phone ahead and get directions to their car park.

    An excellent value Christmas package delivered by attentive staff. Comfortable if not over large room on third floor (Bronze). Three very pleasant and relaxing nights with access to good walks to work off the excellent food. We will return!

    I recently visited Kings for dinner followed by drinks, the food was fantastic as was the service.

    I would particularly recommend a trip to the bar for after dinner cocktails. The barman, James, provided particularly good service and was clearly very knowledgeable; based upon our favorite tipples, he served up perfectly delicious and unusual cocktails.

    We will be back!

    Just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Kings Hotel, Christchurch. Lovely position.
    All staff very welcoming and efficient, especially Neil and George in the restaurant - well done young men. All meals were excellent and for a change you did not need to have a bank loan to buy a decent glass or bottle of wine.
    Our room was on the third floor but quite quirky, very clean and comfortable - the lift rides are to be remembered.

    Will return again without reservations.

    Stayed here with husband for a night away for a belated Valentines treat.
    Christchurch is a nice little town and the location of the hotel is great, right opposite the ruins.
    I took advice from previous reviews and requested a room facing the rear of the hotel without an interconnecting door, got exactly what we asked for. Beautiful decoration and furniture, the best mattress topper and bedding ever, loved it so much made enquiries to get one for my own bed.
    Amazing cocktails and great food in the restaurant. Booked the inclusive of dinner rate and without desserts the allocated £25 pp was done.
    The rate also included a spa treatment at the Harbour Hotel Spa, a wonderful almost 2 hours of hot stone massage (upgraded the included time). We've stayed here previously and once again a fantastic experience.
    The rooms are bigger at the Kings than the Harbour hotel, similar decor, but we had a bath that was better than just a shower.
    Only negative was the parking, bit tricky to find, but once we found it got a space at the rear of the hotel no problem.
    I will definately be returning here.

    Room Tip: Get a room at the back of the hotel to avoid any road noise.
