“Fantastic find in Beverley”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We booked The Kings Head as a last minute stop off on the way up to Durham for the Bank Holiday. We were really pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms and the bathroom. We also got a fantastic welcome from all the staff. We got 20% off our food bill for being residents and a very generous breakfast was included in the price. The free wifi was also fantastic. We left to go up to Durham on the Saturday morning and got a phone call half way there to say we'd left some clothes in the wardrobe, so agreed to stop by and collect them on the Monday. However when we arrived up in Durham we found the hotel we had booked so disappointing that we decided to stay in Durham only one night and returned to the Kings Head for the Sunday night. We were welcomed like old friends and again had a great room. One of the most impressive things was the staff were all quite young which gave a great energy to the place but they were all mature and professional enough to look after guests and make decisions. On both occasions we checked in our bags were taken to our room without having to ask. Our breakfasts were made exactly as we asked for them (I like my porridge quite stodgy). All of the staff were fantastic but I have to give special mention to Zac and Jessica, and also the lady with bobbed hair who looked after us at dinner (Charlie?). Some other reviews have mentioned the noise of the music going on quite late. It did (well it is a pub!!) but on neither night we stayed there did this stop us sleeping. In fact with the TV on in the bedroom we could hardly hear it. I would definitely stay in the Kings Head again if visiting Beverley. In fact it would persuade me to use Beverley as a stop off point in the future! Thank you so much to all the wonderful team for making us so welcome.

Thanks so much for the great review, I'm guessing that it was your "Pink Shirt"!and jacket that was left behind! It's no trouble to reunite you with it and I'm glad you could pick it up as it would have cost a fortune for us to post it!!
Thanks also for identifying the staff who helped make your stay so great. It's through feedback like this that we can reward and continue to make the team and business better.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon

We visited Beverley at the weekend with some friends and stayed at The Kings Head. We would definitely recommend this hotel/bar. The people who work here are really friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room we stayed in was lovely, clean and comfortable.
We ate in the bar at lunchtime and also had the breakfast the following morning. The food was really tasty and good value for money.
All in all an excellent experience and we would definitely stay here again if we were in Beverley.

Stayed overnight after the races very friendly and pleasant hotel. The staff were cheery and polite, the rooms big and clean and the breakfast was brill ! Only downside it was a little noisy ! But not too bad. Breakfast finished at 9 which was a little early for me. Would definitely stay there again !

Thanks for taking the time to review us. If you do (and I hope you do) stay with us again, we are happy to offer a slightly later breakfast. It's not a major problem for us to do this if we know in advance.

Best wishes

This was a last minute booking on a business trip and the pub was busy but the staff were friendly and went out of their way to make me welcome.

There is a slight issue with parking - the hotel only has 8 spaces at the rear for parking and this is shared between the 12 rooms and staff. There is plenty of parking out front but you need to pay and display.

The room itself was large and welcoming with a flat screen TV, comfy bed and ensuite bathroom.

There was the usual tea / coffee and biscuits provided along with a complimentary bottle of water.

The food in the bar was good and reasonably priced and the location (in the centre of Beverley) could not be faulted.

Due to the type of building (it's older rather than a modern purpose built hotel) the shower in the ensuite is set quite low and I couldn't stand under the shower without crouching and I'm only 6'0 tall.

If you're looking for a decent hotel at a reasonable price - look no further!! ;0)

Thanks for your review. You are right about the limited parking. We do try our best to get as many cars in there as possible but an earlier arrival is always advantageous. I'm guessing you stayed in room 4 with regard to the shower? You're right again, great room just a bit antiquated due to the old nature of the building and certainly not for tall people.

Hope to see you again soon

A large group of us stayed over two nights for a friend's wedding over May bank holiday. From the minute we arrived we got great service as we were checked in and shown to our room by Zac. Our rooms were nicely decorated and clean, and the bed was very comfortable.

We had booked to eat in the evening and they had given us a great table away from the main hustle and bustle of the pub and had even provided balloons which was a lovely touch! Our waitress Charlotte could not have done enough for us and that was the general feeling over the whole weekend. Very friendly and well trained staff!

At breakfast they took the time to remember that we had been to a wedding, asked us whether we had enjoyed it and sympathised with our hangovers!

I was also very impressed with the fact that all of your sandwiches could be served on gluten free bread! Something i am always looking for!
Thanks again for a great stay!

Thanks for your nice words and we are all really pleased you had a great time at your friends wedding. The gluten free bread is proving a real hit, many people order it because they like the taste rather than any allergies!!

Hope to see you again soon

Since recently moving to Beverley I have used The Kings Head WiFi to keep my online business alive, without it I'd have been really struggling! I've spent a good few hours sitting in the corner with my laptop and have been nothing but delighted with the food, drinks and level of service. Much appreciated!

Stayed here over the bank holiday weeken of 4th May 2014. Loved every minute of the place. We were welcomed at the reception desk with a speedy check-in, shown our rooms and designated a free parking place at the rear of the hotel.

The whole set-up and staff approach is fantastic, nothing is a hassle. Our room was great and overlooked the main square with very comfortable furnishings, power showered en-suite, wall mounted TV, kettle, hair dryer very comfy bed and lovely warm heating.

The fob attached to your key ring gives you a 20% discount on any meals purchased in the restraunt and the menu choice is plentful.

You have to vacate by 11am on departure but not before being served a very tasty breakfast of your choice with cereal, yogut, fruit, juice, tea or coffee.

Got to be the best priced hotel in Beverley.

We hope to return sooner rather than later. Big thankyou to all the staff.
