Nice location, lovely grounds (if a little untidy). Room OK but bathroom very out-dated. Service mostly good & friendly if a little inexperienced. Very understaffed in evening. Restaurant experience a disaster! Steak sent back because overcooked and monkfish dish returned TWICE as totally dry and inedible!! Got a partial refund when challenged but staff quite abrupt at the time. Overall... More

Lovely family run hotel in beautiful surroundings. Room was nice, clean and airy with everything you need in it. Bathroom was very clean with all the traditional little toiletries (something you no longer see in the big chains). Food in the restaurant was lovely, freshly made to order and hot. Breakfast was lovely and plenty. Hayley and staff were fantastic,... More

Came as a couple for one night. Beautiful hotel with stunning clean rooms. Four poster bed was amazing. Room was spacious with nice clean bathroom. Hotel staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough to help us. Grounds were beautiful. Would come again and recommend.

Great evening meals...Great Breakfast...Great surroundings. Well priced bar. Everyone at the Hotel made us feel very special and assisted in giving us the Fairy Tale Wedding that people dream of. We were very fortunately... More

This is a nice hotel set a few miles outside of Canterbury. The staff were very pleasant, we did not dine there in the evening but the breakfast was very good. The bedroom was spacious and we had a 4 poster bed which was comfortable but was a "built in" unit rather than an authentic 4 poster. The bathroom was... More

We stayed here for my sons graduation. I has asked for quiet rooms but I also wanted the two rooms to be near each other. We had rooms 16 & 17 they were next door to each other down a little private landing. Absolutely perfect. Rooms were dual aspect and nicely appointed. My sons room (17) had a little patch... More

We stayed here for a single night during June. Typical english manor house style hotel. A bit run down, but full of character. The double room we had was small but nicely decorated. The double bed was particularly narrow 1.4 mtr. The bathroom was similarly small. The staff was friendly and helpful with the luggage. You can enjoy a nice... More
