The Duke's Head Hotel overlooks King's Lynn's bustling Tuesday Market Place, which is lined with handsome buildings dating from the 14th century. The hotel occupies an imposing Georgian property with a distinctive powder-blue façade, and is within a 5-minute walk of the shops and restaurants in the contemporary Vancouver Quarter, the banks of the River Great Ouse and Lynn Museum, which details West Norfolk's history. The cathedral city of Ely is around 50 minutes' drive, while both Norwich and Cambridge, with its ancient university, are around 70 minutes' drive from the hotel.

Traditional meets modern in the hotel's interior, which is finished with wood panelling, period portraits and gilt-framed mirrors. Guests can order snacks and cocktails in the buzzy bar with its plush banquettes, dine on classic British fare in the elegant restaurant which has wooden floors, smart leather seating and a terrace area, or relax with afternoon tea.

The hotel's 78 guestrooms are "smartly decorated" (The AA) in soft neutral tones. All include free Wi-Fi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Higher tariff rooms add bigger beds with oversized headboards and some come with sitting areas, richly patterned fabrics and period-style furnishings. There is also a suite with a living area, and an apartment offering a kitchen and a town-view terrace. Room service is available.

We have stayed here many times before and had always found it a pleasant stay.

We upgraded to a classic room however the room was overlooking the kitchen extractor fans. Which were quite noisy. We asked for another room but was told all the classic rooms were taken. We settled for a standard room which was in a better location . To be honest there was not a lot of difference . The difference was in the bathroom in the classic was slightly bigger. Also we were not told about the parking charge when we booked the room.

Staff in restaurant not brilliant, service a bit lack lustre, had to ask for things that should be provided (e.g. cutlery, the wine, glasses). Very pleasant and polite staff, just not trained.

Was unhappy that the hotel charges £10 a day for parking- took the edge off an otherwise great deal.
