Wow. We were here last weekend as guests at a wedding. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left things could not have been better. The location was easy to find, the grounds immaculate and the room was spotless. A very important thing for my wife is cleanliness so we weren't let down. The wedding was really good,... More

Stayed here for our anniversary, and our double room was ok but the bathroom had hair everywhere and the mirror was dirty, as was one of the towels, really grossed me out. Came back to the hotel at 10.20 to find no one manning the bar, no response to the bell in the bar nor in reception. TV in the... More

everything about this hotel was just what we were looking for. an out of the way location, cosy and classic room, it has charm and character. we had a four poster bed in room 11 and it was lovely. I'm an insomniac and even I slept well! the only down point I can think of is that being a vegetarian... More

Enjoyed a really lovely wedding here where the highlight was definitely the food. It was a cut above the usual plastic chicken - really nicely cooked and presented. The grounds are stunning; the room felt a tad dated, but was actually very comfortable and breakfast was also very good. Your guests will love you for booking your wedding here!

What a lovely hotel, wanted a nice hotel near Canterbury as we had family over from Australia, they have travelled all over the world and this is the best hotel they have ever stayed in, character, charm, service and price, it will take a lot of beating, some will have better facilities, but as a total package this is just...

I recently went to a wedding here. The rooms were immaculate and the food was amazing with the perfect portion size. The staff on hand were discreet and quickly knew to hover near my husband with the canapés. Apart from that I never noticed them flitting around making sure everything was flowing - experts clearly! Only down side was that... More

We had at our wedding at this venue on the 27.04.2014, we found the whole experience from the booking of the venue until the end of our wedding day absolutely fantastic. The wedding co-ordinator (Hayley) was absolutely brilliant, she catered for all our needs and always kept us informed of any developments. I could not rate the service that she... More
