We stayed for one night at the King's Head to attend a party in the local area. We made a mistake with the booking, but Jules and Tim sorted it out for us and could not have been more friendly or hospitable. The room was spotlessly clean and we had a really comfortable night's stay. The breakfast is excellent. We would happily recommend the hotel and will be back.
Stayed August 2011, with family.

We stayed for two nights at the King's Head to attend a wedding in the local area. New Owners Jules and Tim went far beyond the call of duty to make us welcome and could not have been more friendly or hospitable. The rooms are basic, but spotlessly clean and contain everything needed for a comfortable night's stay. The breakfast is excellent - plenty of choice and plenty of it! This place is excellent value for money and the beds were very comfortable indeed. It is clear that Tim and Jules have embarked on some refurbisment works and we had no doubts that this wonderful old Inn is enjoying their care and attention to detail. We would happily recommend this place to anyone needing a bed in this area. (and the pies - quite, quite marvellous pies!!)

Room Tip: Try for a room at the front of the Inn as there is sometimes entertainment at the back which might be noisy.

Thank you for your kind words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Just a shame you missed our upgrade which has added flat screen freeview TVs in all rooms with a dvd library guests can borrow from.

Our first impression was to turn the car around and go home due to what looked like an under-age bar behind the hotel. We decided to give it a chance but not sure we would go again.

Good Points:
The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us - the food was good and the portions generous.

Bad Points:
The room was OK. Felt it wasn't worth what we paid. We were shocked when we found out the rooms had been refurbished as we felt ours was dated and a bit grubby in places.

The fire exit was through a bedroom and our room was connected to what appeared to be a communal toilet - we heard several people using the bathroom due to an inch wide gap in the connecting door.

Verdict:
All in all, a good effort but a long way to go.

Julie and Tim went above and beyond for us under very difficult circumstances. The rooms were comfortable, I would recommend them to anyone who wants to be in the area. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Julie's homemade soup was wonderful. I definitely would stay there again. Barbara from Ontario, Canada

We are sorry the stay did not live up to your expectations - especially that you felt the room was grubby. We do have discos or karaoke every friday night as we are one of the few sources of entertainment in Bungay and the surrounding area - however we do ensure all attendees are at least 18 and that they are well behaved. We are aware of the issue of noise from the duty manager's flat toilet in the room and have taken steps to make sure this does not disturb guests.

A group of us had booked so that we could attend a school reunion, and I want to say thanks to Tim and Julie for the work that you put in to make us welcome.

I had a single room on the top floor (The Billy Moss room), and although the carpet and furniture could do with replacing sometime soon, the room was spotlessly clean - it couldn't be faulted, not a spec of dust or grime anywhere. I would have liked to have had a towel rail for the shower too. My bed was very comfortable and I would have been very happy to sleep there for another night - not always the case with hotel beds.

There was a good welcome pack in the room - perhaps the addition of a pen would be helpful for guests to fill in their breakfast order form and guest feedback questionnaire? Since the rooms also have individual names, perhaps add a sheet to the pack explaining who the characters that the rooms are named after?

The food was great (lunch and breakfast); although the lunch menu is a little limited it is good quality. Plenty of choice for breakfast, and well cooked. To get to the nit-picking detail, a good butcher's sausage would have made the breakfast even better, but what was provided was perfectly acceptable as fas as I was concerned.

If I am in town again, I would be more than happy to stay there again and I'm happy to recommend this to anyone looking for excellent value accommodation. Tim and Julie have only been there since Nov 2010, and anyone reading reviews really ought to disregard anything written before then.

Thank you for your kind comments. The ideas about a pen and background on the name of each room have been taken on board as have another guests comments about bottled water in each room. We are glad you enjoyed the stay and hope to see you again at the next reunion.
