My wife and I stopped at the Spa for the one night in July after attending a social event in the area. Parking was convenient and secure, the staff at reception were very efficient and welcoming and even our room - which we hadn't bothered to upgrade - was far better than we would normally expect for a standard room....

Stayed in The Royal Spa overnight for work purpose and I was really pleased with the hotel. It had a nice royal antique feel to it and the location was quiet and peaceful. The staff were very friendly and very welcoming and made time to answer my general questions about Tunbridge Wells. The rooms were small, but still spacious and... More

Our daughter and now son-in-law decided to get married at The Spa. From the first meeting with the coordinator until the day of the wedding everything ran very smoothly. My daughter and I stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. There was a wedding on the day we arrived and... More

Stayed here overnight on business. It's a beautiful hotel with real old world charm. The room was beautifully laid out and made the most of the small space. The bathroom was spotless, air con was effective and the bed was really comfy. Staff throughout the hotel were very pleasant and said hello as you passed them. My meal in the... More

Wonderful quaint little hotel. The rooms are small, clean and very comfortable. The staff were helpful and professional. The bar serves a cappuccino that rivals anything you will be served in Italy. And the prices are more then reasonable. I'd go back.

I'll keep this snappy-ish, as I could go on and on Check in: They can't find my booking, so I give the young lady the reservation number. She informs me I was booked for the previous day. So I show her the booking request / confirmation, which clearly showed I was correct. She apologises and informs me she can sort... More

However we would once again reiterate the importance of raising any issues with the Duty Manager. If we are not made aware of issues, we cannot address them. We are sorry that your card was not pre-authorised... More

The Spa Hotel has increased the price for 3 course Sunday Lunch and coffee to £34. On the last two visits the restaurant was almost empty. Although the food is good they have increased the price too much and customers are going elsewhere. Sorry to say probably our last visit.

As I was travelling alone on business and unable to find a Premier Inn locally, this was in the right place at the right time. Looked very nice on the web site etc.... so booked it. Then I reviewed the hotels very elaborate menu and found it to be really expensive (e.g 8oz steak £36!), with little choice of "normal"... More
