We had room One on the first floor in this old 18th century hotel. The hotel is showing its age but that is part of the charm of this Georgian town house hotel. In contrast to the keen young staff, the building and especially the floorboards creaked .. a lot..
Room One is large, clean, modernised to a small but comfortable degree with a 4 poster bed , comfortable sitting area with settes and large bath / bathroom. It is also situated directly above the bars, and so is quite noisy on Friday and Saturday nights. The hotel itself, is situated prominately at the corner of the main traffic entrance and exit to the attractive Wimborne town square. This just adds to the noise level. However discounting this, we had a really enjoyable time here, and Wimborne town is a joy of small shops and local pubs / eateries.
Breakfast was hugely enjoyable with the usual cerals, morning goods and fruit, but all other items were freshly cooked to order. Very good selection including kippers. The breakfast / dining room was well managed on both mornings by exceptionally good and well organised ladies.
Our evening meal for both nights was in the hotel restaurant. Nice laid back atmosphere with attractive choices and good wine selection. Great beer choice available as you would expect from this chain. Restaurant service was good and cheerful. Food equally welcoming, and good value.
The Kings Head is an really enjoyable stay, although as I previously mentioned, it is showing its age. If you are looking for slick uber modern fixtures and fittings, with night life until breakfast: you are in the wrong town and hotel. Wimborne oozes charm, and so does the Kings Head. It also has the advantage of being well run, and staff who are interested in their guests. We will definately be back.
