I was in London on business and booked this for its location. I love the character of the building and the staff were fantastic. So welcoming and conscientious. The food was great from the evening meal to the lovely breakfast.

Very quaint pub/B&B. Room was facing the street, not too noisy and could see many deer crossing the street in the early morning. Breakfast was ample with a nice variety. Would definitely stay here again.

We arrived very early in the Morning from Heathrow.( Around 8.30am) The girl at reception was very helpful and explained that our room was still occupied but it would be ready as soon as they could get in to make up the room. They took our bags and put them in storage until we got back from visiting Hampton court... More

I've stayed here every few weeks for the last 5 months and stayed in several rooms. It is a very beautiful historical building and with it comes the quirks like uneven floors, narrow passages etc. which is all completely fine and part of the fabric. But...it is in dire need of a lick of paint and a general refresh upstairs... More

The Kings Arms is a 300 year old inn located on the Northern edge of Hampton Court Palace. The building is steeped in history and in parts of it date back to 1658. Originally built as a ‘house of disrepute’ for the soldiers garrisoned at Hampton Court Palace but now a great place to drink, eat or stay. If I... More

Not much food available when we arrived on a Sunday evening but I expect they had had a busy day being next to the Palace. Not very busy and I think they need to up their offering to survive in the current market although I'm sure they do a roaring trade during the day.

We did a tour of Hampton Court Palace and decided to look at the maze and use that exit. Just outside the exit we found the Kings Arms hotel and decided to have lunch this hotel had many original features for classic English pub. Staff were very helpful and friendly the food for a pub was fantastic but I must... More
