    convenient position for town and church. Very pleasant staff. An all round comfortable stay with excellant food

    The top floor room was larger than expected with a beautiful bathroom but very hot.

    Breakfast was nice, particularly Haddock. Our room was big enough and clean

    Interiors are nothing more than modern furnished flats in London, less than the standards of hotels...

    The hotel was well situated in nice town and looked very nice, the hotel was clean. Staff were fiendly and helpfull.

    We were given a double room on the top floor but the room became very warm and could have done with air conditioning. Was told by staff to use fans provided but this was not good enough...

    Lovely view over the bowling green and the Priory; and modern, comfortable bar and restaurant.

    Noisy at night because of traffic and Friday night revellers!

    We requested to be able to get into our room for 1pm ( Grand Prix ! ) and was very pleased when our request was granted, the staff were so very helpful and very pleasent. We decided to have dinner in the hotel and was very impressed with both presentation and quality of the food.the room was lovely and one of the nicest bathrooms I have seen in a hotel !

    The only thing I found slightly inconvenient was the parking but we did find the car spaces behind the hotel eventually.

    We actually stayed at the Kings in Castle Street Christchurch the sister hotel to the Kings Harbour. The hotel has the most wonderful decor so it must have recently been refurbished. The staff were very nice and efficient also the breakfast (freshly cooked) was lovely. We weren't really there long enough - arrived about 8.30pm and left about 8.30am to appreciate it's full potential.

    Finding the car park at the rear of the hotel is a bit tricky especially trying to fight your way around Christchurch in the traffic - you need to know where you are going.

  • Older travelers

    Exellant stay, staff available at all times and always courteous. Dining room and food was exellant.

  • Single
    9.2

    My room was large, beautifully decorated and clean. The bed was very comfortable with high quality linens. The bathroom was very modern and spotless. Breakfast was very nice.

    The shower was tricky to figure out. The beautiful bedside lighting was inadequate for reading. Usage of the in-room phone was horribly expensive and there was no mention about what the costs might be in the hotel information packet (as there is in other hotels). I didn't realize I was going through the hotel phone system to make my calls. In other hotels I have stayed in, a direct dial phone does not go through the hotel and the costs are minimal..

    The rooms were beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Wonderful fittings without being ostentatious. Comfortable bed (new), good lighting, lots of space, quiet, good service. Nothing too much trouble

    Only that the car parking was inadequate and free wifi was not working for the duration of our stay. There was also no wired hifi despite claims that this was available

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The room was well furnished and very pleasant Breackfast was first class with very nice waitress All the staff were very friendly

    Thev car parking

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Comfortable room, excellent staff. Standard of decor, fittings etc very high and well maintained. Central location suits exploration of town and region.

    Parking is limited and overflow is on small piece of land across the road. I was able to use hotel's car park at rear which was fine, but I heard other guests who were less happy with overflow parking. However reviews made this clear and it came as no surprise.
