We have just returned after staying at the Dog & Bear Hotel in Lenham. Our stay was first class, the super king bedroom was clean and modern, but with some lovely character features. Food was excellent both evening meal and breakfast and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall a great experience. Lenham by the way is a very... More

This was a lovely hotel that mixed it's 17th century heritage with modern day life really well. When we arrived Brian was expecting us, which was an excellent start to our stay. The food was of the highest quality and staff really friendly. The room had the old world look about it but had all the mod cons. Really nice... More

From the moment we walked into the hotel we were made welcome. The staff were very helpful. The food was very good and plentiful. The room was a good size and kept beautifully clean. We shared the hotel with guests from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

Booked this hotel as it accepts dogs, the hotel itself is very pleasant and a convenient location for my requirements. I was marginally disappointed with the room as I had anticipated a room based on the images on the website. I personally slept terribly as I found the bed uncomfortable, although my partner slept well. We had a small garden... More

We stayed at the Dog & Bear Hotel in Lenham for Valentine's weekend. We had a lovely time. The hotel is well situated in a lovely village setting. Food was fantastic, and rooms were really lovely. The staff cannot do enough for you. Would go back if in the area.

Can't recommend this enough! Lovely village too, we will definitely return to this fab hotel that was great value for money. You won't be disappointed, we... More

Stayed many time at the Dog & Bear. Brian and Anne can never do enough for you! Rooms are great, breakfast excellent and the bar well stocked with well kept beer. My fussy parents who normally live in Spain stayed there too when visiting for our wedding and if you can impress them then you are doing very well! You... More

We only stayed for one night but would have happily stayed longer if we'd had the time. Room was a good size, nicely decorated, well equipped and clean.The breakfast was tasty and there was plenty of it, if fact too much for me but not my husband who ate my bacon. The staff were all very friendly and the pub... More

We stayed here two nights and had a very nice stay. The room was clean and cozy. The hostess and staff were very kind. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough. We would definitely recommend it!

Stayed the one night on our way to Dover. Couldn't fault anything. Staff very pleasant and excellent food. Room was spot on and the general ambience made it a most pleasant, albeit short, stay. Will certainly stay again when going to Dover.
