Four of us booked a table for an evening meal. The hotel has parking, so we parked and went in through the main hotel reception. The receptionist was on the phone, so we waited, but she gave no sign to indicate that she would be with us, so we walked through towards the restaurant. Two waitresses were standing across the...

Friendly staff, spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds. Common rooms also comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was buffet style and if anything had run out we had only to ask and it was brought to our table. Would definitely use again

Breakfasts ruined the break. One miserable plump English waitress in attendance., Laminated tables, Filthy carpet. Hot trays were empty, and dried out with no lids. No cold meats or cheese. Large plates dirty and cold. Coffee not hot, no table cloths or sugar on table. AND after complaining, no reply or even apology from manager. The evening waiting staff and...

Nice, recently refurbished hotel. Right on the market square, there is a car park at the rear, but I normally use the big public one out front. It's £1 6pm to 8am. Nice tasteful rooms, of a good size. Nice comfy lounges. Negatives, for me - no real ale in the bar. Buffet breakfast, which I hate.. overdone fried eggs...

Stayed in room 214, directly above the ball room loud music still going now at 5 past midnight. Perhaps hotel should think if guest not at the party don't put them in a room above the ballroom. Not happy as no one on reception to complain to. Never will I stay here again!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of King's Lynn old town and overlooking the historic market place, the Duke's Head is perfect for discovering what Norfolk has to offer to the business and leisure traveller. Since Georgian times, this impressive classical building has welcomed visitors including Princess Victoria and Sir Robert Walpole (generally considered to be the first Prime Minister of Great Britain) in considerable comfort and style.Its location overlooking the ancient market place in the centre of King's Lynn would have denoted its importance in a town peppered with fine historic buildings. The Duke's Head is located walking distance away from King's Lynn station, nightlife, restaurants, bars and leisure club. Kings Lynn is serviced by regular trains to London and serves as an ideal location for discovering Norfolk. North Norfolk is an ideal tourist destination. Whether you enjoy the lively atmosphere and entertainment offered by traditional seaside resorts, the tranquility of the small fishing villages, which spring to life at high tide, you can't help but be impressed by the beautiful coastline and the fascinating history of its towns. The Hotel has recently benefited from a 3 million pound refurbishment. ... more   less
