Very good and not very expensive hotel. Really good food, exceptional breakfast. Perfect location if you are visiting Leeds Castle, its only 5 minutes walk. After long day you can relax in the pool however it gets busy on weekends.

There is no air-conditioning in bedrooms also only rails and shelves for your clothes - obviously geared up for the business traveller and one nighters, Also our room was near the extractor fans and was very noisy and didn't stop until about midnight, Food was O.K. but not fantasti but the staff were excellent. I was disappointed because I had... More

Dominic, where were you on Tuesday evening?. No your were not helpful. Perhaps if you had been on duty, you might, just might have improved the situation. But obviously, like so many in your hotel,responsibility in the concern of someone else. I was in room 153 the bathroom was a tragic reminder or 1960s conversion

Hotel is in need of some refurbishment. There was no lift in our part of the hotel. The carpets in the corridors were nearly threadbare in places. Poor service in the restaurant lead us to leave without being offered dessert or coffee.

Dear Franco Thank you for your review. I am sorry we did not deliver our usual restaurant service. The 5 rooms in the manor house are reached via the original staircase. These rooms were used by the Beatles back in the 60's during filming nearby for the 'Magical Mystery Tour'. They are large spacious rooms, quiet and favorite with regulars,... More

The hotel looked enticing on a summers afternoon. That's where the idyll ended. Having driven over a 1000 miles from Italy to get here, I was so looking forward to spending time in a gracious hotel. My room did not have air conditioning although all the public did( I suppose for the staff) In order to stay somewhat cooler during... More

We stayed at the hotel on Friday and Saturday night. We arrived mid day on Friday and on check in, the chap on reception must have read my booking comments requesting a quiet room (which I had forgotten about having pre booked a month before online), as we had a room at the back of the hotel. The room itself... More

It was the second time we have stopped at this location, as the first time was fine. The hotel room we were given was very small and very poor layout (a lot smaller compared to even a Travel Inn ?) and was so hot and airless as to be unbearable to stop in the room for even a few minutes... More

Dear KGRandP Thank you for your review and your ongoing custom. We really do value all your comments, ideas and suggestions.
