“"great food, rooms and service"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

I stayed for two nights recently. I chose to stay in Berkhamsted as I was visiting friends and family in London but did not wish to stay in the city. I was recommended to try the Kings Arms by friends who had stayed in the past. The room was perfect, it had great character, nice and spacious with a good en-suite. The breakfast menu had a great variety and I ended up having the scrambled egg with smoked salmon on toast option. Incredible! I also stayed for dinner on my second night and was very pleased with what I got! The menu was varied and the portions were spot on. I had lamb and it was just right. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. All in all it was a great stay and is hard to fault. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will almost certainly be staying there in the future.

A good base for us to do the Berkamstead Half Marathon.
The hotel was very accommodating with early check-ins and late check-outs. Service was friendly and food was done well.
Only complaint was the noise as there was a function that ran until late into the night.
All in all, a good stay.

Room Tip: A second floor room may be better on a weekend to get away from the noise.

Stayed two nights. Staff friendly and pleasant. Risotto superb. Caesar salad had all the right ingredients not necessarily in the right order. Dressing very gloopy. Breakfast good. The rooms are large and characterful though those on the front are noisy due to wetherspoons next door - late night music and early morning deliveries, with no concessions to times. Better soundproofing would help.

Room Tip: Don't go for the rooms facing the high street

had a meal in there tonight. As I am first time customer let me say WOW, I was treated more like a guest in a friends home than a customer in a restaurant. Service was great and the food was excellent. The bone marrow starter was melt in your mouth. Have never seen that on a menu and just loved it. I am even contemplating booking a table for mothers day. Will defiantly be back to sample more of this establishments delights. The staff are a delight and a credit.

Went to the restaurant last night for the first time with 4 friends. Service very prompt and efficient and food well cooked, hot and appetising. Only downside - it gets very noisy later in the evening as it fills up - so not a good venue for a romantic meal a deux! Great for a gathering of friends though - we'll definitely go again.
