The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms

A gem on the Dorset coast is how The Kings Arms in Christchurch has been described; every reason to book this boutique hotel for business meetings and events for up to 200 delegates. From conferences, awards ceremonies, product launches and training sessions to team building days, board meetings, networking receptions and private dining, this is superb.

The Kings Arms is a perfect blend of traditional character and creative contemporary style. The ambience is relaxed, the setting is a beautiful Georgian building overlooking a bowling green, the River Avon and romantic priory ruins. No wonder it’s a favourite for weddings. Of the 4 event spaces, the biggest is the Pavilion, holding 200 guests for drinks, 120 in theatre style and 90 for a banquet. The Upper Priory is also good for dining, with room for 96 in rounds, or it seats 80 delegates in theatre style and 28 in U-shape. Hire the Private Dining Room for receptions for 45, dining for 36 and board meetings for 18, or the Lower Priory for dinners or cocktails for 60.

The bowling green can be booked for events, or choose activities like ‘Catch it, Cook it, Eat it’ fishing trips, and cocktail masterclasses. In-house chefs cater for events big and small, AV equipment can be arranged to suit your requirements, and you’ll have the services of a dedicated events co-ordinator.

Most of the 20 bedrooms have lovely views; there’s a restaurant and bar, and guests have complimentary use of the spa and gym at a neighbouring hotel just a 5 minute drive away.

With free parking for all guests, the Kings Arms is 5 minutes by car from Christchurch train station, 2 hours from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Bournemouth Airport.
