Lovely food and a pleasant stay
The accommodation was fine, if a little dated.
The only real drawback with the room was that the window didn't open. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant, friendly and helpful, and only slightly disorganised service at one evening meal prevented this from being rated higher.
The real plus was the food. We had a meal on the first evening, intending to eat elsewhere the second evening, but enjoyed it so much that we ended up eating in again on the second night. Breakfasts were very enjoyable too, with a good quality produce used. The beer was well-kept too.
Accommodation very good with plenty of storage space and comfortable bed.
Shower very efficient but very compact and not enough space for wet towels.
Beware the disco!!
I knew this was a Pub/Hotel so understood that there would be some noise into the room.
Unfortunately the family room we had was right outside the front door of the pub. It wasn't until we arrived that we found a disco which the barman then advised would be going until midnight. At 10 it wasn't to bad, but gradually the music got louder until we could have had our own disco in the room. The actual noise from the patrons was fine, hardly noticed them. Breakfast was good although not served until 8. Good place to stay for a weekday, but beware the weekend disco.
Was a very pleasant stay.
Only one negative which was access to the
Room was very dangerous. My dad had real problem with the stairs.
Only because they are far too narrow & had to walk sideways.
only place in town
Melksham is a bit of a cultural desert and The Kings Arms offers excellent food (lunch and dinner), although the cheesecake may be an acquired taste.
Accommodation was good - old fashioned but comfy and the breakfast great. Staff friendly and helpful. No noisy parties after closing time so a peaceful night's sleep.
good, clean, functional, friendly staff, wil return
Just what we wanted
A very nice, well decorated hotel and pub, looked after by pleasant and friendly people.
We were instantly made welcome. The decor played to the Kingly name and the breakfast was lovely. I would stay again.
getting a little older and wiser.
Arrived at 12 o clock room was ready and very warm which was good because it was cold and windy outside .
The breakfast was very good lots of choice. Will stay again.
Convenient for our needs,staff welcoming.
room negotiated up a steep staircase,needs to be pointed out on booking .Room had all that you would want.The bed was on the small side,the mattress. Had seen better days,poor in comparison with others.Breakfast offered a fair selection the cooking,this was scrambled and poached eggs was poor.
A Wonderful Welcome
Had the most wonderful weekend at the Kings Arms, the owners and staff are so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and spotless clean. The food was delicious. Top of my list for a weekend get away.
