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...

Situated in a pleasant village the hotel serves very good food. Both dinner and breakfast was freshly cooked, tasty with good sized portions. Travelling with our dogs, we found the staff to be very helpful, extremely accommodating and friendly. We were able to dine with the dogs in the bar. Our room was located on the ground floor in an...

A great little hotel in a fantastic old village. A little of the beaten track but well worth a visit - forget the premier inn or the holiday inn, we need more of these quality private hotels. The staff are good, the restaurant serves delicious food and the bar (pub) is great. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable.... More
