Lovely spacious room, tastefully done also spotlessly clean, comfy bed,... More

We stayed for just one night at the Dog and Bear in Lenham and found it a lovely place to stay. The room was comfortable and looked like it had been recently re-furbished. It was a little bit on the warm side but we were there during the hottest weekend of the year so probably not a lot that good... More

Room was ok but lacked finishing touches, not a full set of toiletries in the bathroom luckily we has bought all our own stuff or we would have had to ask at reception for shampoo etc and after a long day...
