Our first stay here was an unfortunate visit to Lenham for my Great Aunts Funeral, however the staff here were very welcoming and understanding. The room we stayed in this time wasn't the biggest room in the world but was big enough for me and my family ( the normal family room) it had and adequate bathroom with lots of... More

loved this place, nice pub food, good atmosphere and room very nice. All quite modern and clean, bed comfy. Good parking facilities at the back of pub so if you worry about safe parking this place is ok. Breakfast was exceptional, the food was of the highest quality and cooked to perfection. One of the best I've ever had and... More

The hotel room was nice however I stayed in Room 23 and the bed was awful!. The shower cubicle was very small, everytime I turned around I banged my elbow (I still have the bruises) it took at least 3 minutes for the shower to get hot then once it did it was too hot, turning it down only made...

Stayed regularly for work over the years. Always great staff, easy meals, and comfortable rooms. A nice village feel with the town square across the road. It has an Sunday market and a short stroll to country side and close to Ashford for international connections.

I used to live in Lenham 15 years ago and decided to call in yesterday Afternoon for a Sunday lunch. The pub was not particularly busy, but the football was on so I could keep an eye on the score. We ordered the 2 course Sunday roast for £14.50 which seemed good value. Unfortunately after 40 minutes still no sign... More

Good hotel, nice room. A bit noisy, you can hear People talking and the television in the adjacent room. But that didn't bother us too much. Nice pub, with great food. Relaxing atmosphere. Good parking space. Ideal for a short visit!

Loved this hotel. Picturesque setting fronting the village square, there was a market on the Sunday morning which was lovely - stalls selling plants, scented wax for burners, loose leaf teas, knitted items, honey, boot getter-offers and more. We chose this hotel because we wanted to take our dog and as a result he was welcome in the bar area... More

I stay here once a year and the place just gets better, a real pleasant atmospheric hotel in a proper village location . Once again the room was spotless and well appointed, the food was spot on and not wallet busting, bar area was lively with a great selection of lagers and real ales and again all the staff very...
