The staff really are excellent. I have rarely encountered such hardworking friendly and competent people. Rooms are excellent in a period railway building in beautiful Tunbridge Wells with a themed restaurant where the food really matches the hype plus I get to hear my favourite country music.

Came down to tunbridge wells with work, and two I was travelling with had already booked their rooms from recommendations from colleagues. Apprehensive at first, but nothing to worry about. The theme is very tasteful, and the rooms were immaculate! Tassimo machines in the room are a stroke of genius, and with pods sugar and milk all provided free of... More

We booked a weekend at this hotel rather last minute, and so had no real expectations about the hotel, so we were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Obviously being western themed it will not be to everyone's taste, but, the decor in the restaurant aside, it... More

This is a themed "country and western" hotel that delivers on service and quality. You have to like or tolerate the constant country and western music that is played, but don't let that put you off. The hotel is nicely presented inside and the rooms are excellently equipped and comfortable. All the staff are friendly, smile and most helpful. I... More

We went there again for lunch on 10/12/2014. The restaurant and the bar were decorated with Christmas trees and lights which blended very well with the cowboy theme the place is renowned for. The service as usual was first class and the food was prepared with care was of a very high standard.The menue is extensive with a mixture of... More

I stayed here with a colleague on a business trip as the premier inn nearby was more expensive. I got a B&B deal for £75 so took a chance on a "different" hotel from my normal stay. You enter into a saloon type entrance and straight on to the bar area to check in. It feels like a saloon bar,... More

We weren’t sure what to expect when we booked a night at Smith & Western. We knew there was a ‘wild west’ theme, and were worried that it might be horribly tacky. However we were pleasantly surprised, as the whole place – restaurant and hotel – had been cleverly decorated throughout with interesting artefacts and it all seemed perfectly in... More

Great Western themed restaurant and hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms very clean and modern. They have a proper coffee machine in the room that makes a quality filter coffee instead of the more common nasty little sachets of instant. I couldn't fault the room, everything you need is there in the room ready- no phoning... More
