Hotel Tour – Kings Head Hotel Cirencester


On my recent trip to Cirencester, U.K. for the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International match, I was spoiled with a night’s stay at the Kings Head Hotel and it was nothing short of wonderful.

After a full afternoon of polo at the Cirencester Park Polo Club, the Kings Head Hotel invited me for dinner and I invited my UK family Sam and Tom along. We had a very yummy 3-course meal, Sam and I went for salads and the sea bream, whilst Tom opted for the tomato soup and steak. We all shared desserts.

UK Family, Sam and Tom are like an extra set of parents or siblings, they take such good care of me <3


Delicious Sea Bream

Apple tart and ice cream

As the two of them had a bit of a journey back home I was really happy to just walk up a flight of stairs and find my Indulgence Room ready for me to get comfy in.

A complimentary bottle of rose and welcoming macaroons were definitely the way to my heart.

Next morning I had the tough choice of deciding whether to take a bath or a shower as both were quite magnificent. Then down to the restaurant for a breakfast buffet with all the treats and a freshly made omelette to boot.

Memyself and I enjoying brekkie. Only downside to this staycation was that I didn’t have any of my friends there to share it with.

After breakfast I had a little tour of the hotel seeing all the fascinatingly old parts of it, cellars and old hallways, which nowadays turn into magical dining and party rooms. The King’s Head Hotel was recently renovated, the renovation took 7 years as they kept uncovering parts of the original Inn from around 1550 (read more of the history of the hotel here)

Back in the day this was the bar and the barrels would be rolled down those stairs

If these walls could talk… I imagine some extraordinary parties have been held here.

The Kings Head Hotel is believed to have been a clothier back in 1550

The hotel is full of cozy little nooks and interesting things to look at, the perfect place for a relaxing stay.

Fun Fact: on the bannister in the hotel there are little heads, at the bottom of the stairs it is a child, and with each step he grows, to at the top be the fully bearded king in the King’s Head Hotel logo.

After several delicious meals and an amazing night’s sleep, I can definitely recommend the King’s Head Hotel in Cirencester, for anyone going to watch polo or just looking for a great place in the Cotswolds. And Cirencester is a lovely little village to spend a day roaming around and finding hidden gems.

Thank you, King’s Head Hotel for inviting me to spend a night in the hotel after watching the King’s Head Hotel Ladies International Match.

*they have not asked me to review the hotel, these are my own reflections and opinions.
