We stayed one night as we were in town for a wedding. Great hotel and fantastic service. The wedding was at an upscale hotel nearby and boy were we glad we stayed here. Would highly recommend this place if you can see past the cowboy theme!!

We just had a lovely night at Smith and west. The rooms are perfect, its one of the few hotels where everything is well designed and just works. The decor is nice, within the boundaries of a wild west theme. The shower works, which is seldom the case in many hotels. The rooms are very well laid out and the... More

This is really fantastic value for a short stay. Lovely staff, great breakfast and a really good double bedded room. The bedroom has a generous sized bathroom with a power shower and a bonus for me - a mini tassimo for an Americano, in the morning. Everything spotless at the Smith and Western and if you are around in the... More

The attention to detail to make the Western theme interesting and funny was great. The food was delicious and the helpings were generous. The bedrooms were very clean and neat and again had the western theme. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff.

I stayed here while attending a friend's wedding in Wadhurst. Was a bit concerned about the American cowboy theme before arriving, but in fact it was well done and not overdone. The staff were super-friendly, the room (Mohawk) was spacious enough and very clean, and the breakfast was more than enough. It's in a great location (bus stop next door... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and will certainly be returning. Was made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. The rooms were absolutely lovely, we stayed in the Comanche room, couldn't fault it at all. Had a fabulous meal there in the evening and the breakfast was amazing too. Can't wait to return

The man who showed us up to our room was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very clean and modern. Overall customer service was amazing and we loved the theme. Cocktails were very well presented and we loved happy hour (5-7pm). All staff were so welcoming and could not have been more accommodating, we felt... More

Took my partner (or should that be pardner?) here for a night away in Tunbridge Wells. I thought the theme might be a bit of a laugh and I was right. On arrival we made our way through the bar/restaurant past the employees decked out in obligatory stetsons and silver tipped collared shirts. my heart did sink a little a... More

For kitsch value cannot be beaten, how much cheesy wild west theme can you take? Having said that, spacious clean rooms with spotless en suite and great shower. Just a few mins walk from the Pantiles and plenty of car parking. Downside was the complete absence of service at Sunday breakfast (guests wondering around looking for a waiter) and towels... More

Great Western themed hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, Fantastic room, shower and food. Will be staying again when in the south. Hopefully they will make some up north! Very close to the town centre with good transport links
