We enjoyed out stay at the Kings Hotel HUGELY. The best thing about it, which made us feel it was the best hotel we had ever stayed in, was the friendliness of the staff, and the way they made us feel they genuinely cared about how much we enjoyed staying in the hotel. We noticed several staff in the restaurant taking time to talk to an elderly lady dining on her own. Every single member of staff was wonderful - so welcoming and the service was superb. Our room was huge, light and airy with two massive sash windows - and big sitting area - a bit noisy from the road with traffic lights outside - but the room and bathroom were so pleasant it made up for it. On our fishing experience trip, tea and cupcakes was part of the deal but we asked for sandwiches instead and were given wonderful platefuls - with chips. It was a great start to a fabulous holiday. We felt thoroughly spoilt - so well looked after on the fishing trip - great fun going out with Alex and Jamie the skipper and fellow guests - followed by fizz and hot soup, then Alex's wonderful demonstration, and loads of tastes of our mackerel and pollock cooked in different ways, a wonderful spread for lunch with wine, just for us. The tasting menu in the evening was incredible - a shame we couldn't do it justice after our fabulous lunch - even after a snooze and a great walk - what an amazing place Christchurch is - so many unexpected things to see and even the locals seem extra friendly. Thanks to Lucasz and Alex and all the staff for a memorable stay.
