Most of the staff where very friendly. The bar and restaurant area was nice and clean. Our room was number one, spacious room but needed some work. Grouting needs doing in the bathroom, and rusty rack in bathroom needs replacing. Bed was comfy but duvet cover had a rip in down one of the seams. Pillows very flat and tired.... More

I stayed here with my family for a wedding and could not have found everybody more helpful with directions and parking. We did not book the breakfast with the room but decided we would have one the next day and it caused no problem at all. Check out was effortless as well. I was very pleased I chose this hotel...

We and our friends stayed one night in the ground floor rooms in this slightly run down Hotel.Which at £95.00 per night is overpriced. Firstly I would say one good thing, the staff were friendly and very helpful. The bar and restaurant were clean modern and bright. But our stay was let down by the shabby room. Both our rooms...

This hotel was recommended by locals after we had a car accident. The room was good sized and the staff could not have been nicer. We were also very pleased to see that they had a good restaurant as it was pouring outside. Gabriel at the desk was so helpful when we needed to arrange for transportation to Tunbridge Wells...

Wednesday 16 September 2015 We have just had an evening meal in the restaurant. Starters stuffed mushroom's followed by sirloin steak. Mushrooms very tasty. Steak cooked as requested. Just the right portion and well presented. Service very efficient. Waitress very pleasant and attentive. Can safely say we would eat here again and would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to... More

Staff are great. Cute outdoor eating area. The room we were accommodated in, not so great. Cups and saucers not washed from previous guests. Carpet not vacuumed. Somebody's used band aid in the bottom of the shower. It's the lack of attention to detail that was a disappointment.
