About the hotel
The Kings Head is a traditional Inn built in 1622 on the west side of Lower Bridge Street. The name refers to when King Charles stayed at the nearby Gamul House during the English Civil War. Originally it was the town house for Peter the Clerk, the administrator of Chester Castle.
It initially contained a section of the Chester Rows, but these were enclosed during the alterations made between the 15th and early 17th centuries. It is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building. With its deep history comes many tales of ghosts and sprits. Paranormal teams have carried out studies within the Inn for a number of years and believe there is up to thirteen sprits trapped within our walls. Since buying the business in March 2012 thousands of pounds has been spent trying to bring the Ye Olde Kings Head back to its former glory. In November 2012, the property had an extensive refurbishment throughout the bar and restaurant areas, every en-suite bathroom was also replaced and redecorated to a high standard keeping to the traditionally character of the building. So, why not sit back unwind and soak up the friendly atmosphere whilst savouring your favourite drink in front of one of our open fires; indulge in our freshly prepared meals all cooked in house to order from award winning locally sourced supplies cooked to traditionally British pub classics with a modern twist.

Tired, old fashioned boozer with rooms
Sorry owners, but you need to take a good look at the opposition.
Your building is beautiful and could be a premium destination, but at the moment it's a tired old English boozer with tatty carpets, bad decor, and a general feeling of neglect. The staff try but they are scruffy. Not even a 2 star experience.
Beautiful bedding in rooms, very comfortable bed.
Stayed early in the week, had to change rooms to the back of the hotel as my husband is a very light sleeper and the building in on a main road could be a problem for some people staying at the weekend as they have live music on. Due to the age of the building the windows are single glazed and yes ok other reviews mention the shower isn't powerful but it's not as bad as some are making out. Stayed 2nights breakfast on1st morning was overdone, beautifully cooked second!!!!. Very friendly staff. Would stay again lots of character
in the building very quirky after staying in lots of corporate hotels would choose character everytime..
