We were there for an Annual Reunion and the function took place in this Hotel. The Downstairs lounges and the dining area were fine. The ball room which was the function room was freezing cold the whole time we were there and the bed rooms and the food were just not up to scratch. The staff was moderately friendly and...

On business and hotel was comfortable but nothing more. Conference room was small and a bit uncomfortable. Bedroom was nice, food okay but not specials. Staff very busy and not over interested in needs of residents in my opinion. Good location for central Kings Lynn.

This hotel has a great history behind it and is clearly a gem in the town. I found the services at the check-in desk on arrival were not the sharpest I've ever experienced with blame being put on "the system" - presumably the computer one. Also, directions to my room (No.16) were perfunctory and no assistance offered with luggage. I...

Met a colleague for lunch in the lounge area which was private and comfortable. Ordered a light lunch of sandwiches which turned out to be very substantial and equally very enjoyable. Excellent waitress service.

We only stayed for one night, but found the hotel excellent. The room was a good size and had a good shower. The hotel is well placed for walking round the town. The breakfast was very good and cooked to order.

Having never been to Kings Lynn before we chose it to celebrate our 15 years since meeting anniversary. The hotel was easy to find, though it was confusing parking at the back and then having to go down a side alley to the front for reception. First impressions, friendly and helpful staff. We had lunch in the bar while waiting...

Went with friends for a drink in the cocktail bar. We got there at about 10pm, wasn't busy. The barman took over 15 minutes to service us our drinks, then kept telling us he had to Finnish at 11pm. They lost our custom as we went elsewhere for another drink. Beautiful place shame about the staff.

An absolutely beautiful hotel with many of it's original features particularly the staircase which looked lovely. There are plenty of nice areas to sit and have a drink in the hotel and the bar is good. We had booked a Classic Double which was nicely decorated and the wardrobe was huge. The hotels position in Kings Lynn is excellent. The...

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
