We stayed at Smith & Western, Tunbridge Wells for 4 nights from 18th - 22nd August and it was brilliant! The bedrooms and bathrooms were first class....spotlessly clean The American theme was so different it really added a special feel to our stay. The staff were very sweet and helpful. Breakfast was very relaxed with a great choice of menu.... More

We stayed in the Smith & Western on Friday 22 August. We absolutely loved it! The rooms were lovely and so nicely decorated, the bed was so comfy and the shower was excellent. We would definitely come back here if we ever return to the area. The staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Thank you for... More

When our friends told us they'd booked us in to this hotel, I must admit that my heart sank a little. "It'll be tacky" I thought. How wrong can you be ? Sited on the south side of Tunbridge Wells, within walking distance of The Pantiles, this small hotel does have a western theme but as others have stated on... More

I found these on booking.com and had never heard of them. Must say will use them again. The rooms were very clean and presentable. The theme was not over the top, in fact quite tasteful. The staff were very helpful when I had a problem with the coffee machine in my room. I rang down and someone came up straight... More

Two couples stayed here in August. The room are names after a cowboy / indian theme. They were comfortable, clean and had the normal hotel extras you do not get at a premier inn. If you're going to book I suggest you get a room at the back overlooking the carpark as the front is on a busy roundabout. It’s... More

From the outside, the hotel/restaurant looks amazing - something out of a film! We checked in at the bar and stayed in one of the 9 rooms - all named after tribes. Dan was very helpful and showed us the room and was very informative for the whole weekend. We only came down for a random weekend just to get... More

My family and I were so impressed with this place. The decor was fun, but what really made it remarkable was how far the staff went to make our stay comfortable and fun. Over a beer at the bar, the friendly bartenders discovered we hadn't tried crumpets yet-something they considered quintessentially English. The next morning, a platter of crumpets came... More

Not expecting too much from a 'Western Theme' hotel in Tunbridge Wells we went with friends for a quick overnight break. From the outside the building is very imposing and the western theme wears well on the old station. Plenty of free parking at the rear, which is always welcome. Inside the first thing you notice is it's saloon style... More

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
