It's not surprising that this little B&B has such a consistently excellent record on Trip Advisor ! You couldn't get much more central than this location in T Wells, the rooms are tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable and the hosts are extremely open and friendly. There's only one room available, so do ensure to book ahead :) If you are... More

What a wonderful place to stay and the hosts were so friendly and helpful mixing some adopted kiwi warmth with good old fashioned English hospitality. The quality of the decor, furnishings and bathroom was better than some 5* hotels we have stayed. Breakfast was a delight and like home from home. The little courtyard garden was a wonderful sight from... More

This is a gem, we had a gorgeous one night break and it was the perfect b and b. Clean, comfortable, stylish and friendly, our hosts were marvellous and interesting to chat too.. about life down under. Everything is on the doorstep of cafes and shops and they helpfully told us where to park overnight…we wanted for nothing in the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Rose House last weekend. It was just what we needed and more. Jan and Tony were wonderful hosts. It was such a friendly and relaxing atmosphere making us feel at home. The bed was super comfy and location was great. Thank you!

Stayed here on business for 2 nights in March. Wonderful room, kind and friendly hosts, lovely breakfast...could not ask for more. Gave a lovely feel to my whole trip to Tunbridge Wells. Beautiful house to stay in, and a brilliant location in the middle of everything but down a quiet street.

We chose this B&B because of the outstanding reviews - and they are right. Elegant, welcoming, friendly, spotless, central, peaceful are all appropriate. Delightful hosts. Freshly cooked and delicious 'full English'. Exactly what a B&B should be like.

(Belated review due to the length of time overseas) I had the pleasure of staying at Rose House, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent from the 30th October through to the 3rd November, 2014 and I wished I could have spent my entire holiday at this Guest House, with no exaggeration. In all my trips to the U.K. and reflecting upon each... More

We spent a few nights at Rose House in October 2014 whilst in town for my sisters wedding. It was a beautiful b&b with wonderful hosts to match (Jan & Tony)! The room was large (with a comfortable bed and a very nice modern bathroom) and we were treated to a delicious cooked breakfast each morning by Jan. The b&b... More
