I normally stay in holiday inns or premier inns in the week around the country with work, but this is far better!! It was recommended to me by the salon owner I was meeting the following day. I booked in easily over the phone and got a good rate. Check in lady was pleasant and the hotel beautiful. Nice history... More

I get the feeling this is a hotel trying to rebrand itself and its appearance but needs to walk before it can run. Charging £75+ a night I would expect much more for the price. Location is mired by the construction work (not hotels fault). Ample parking. Check-in was quick albeit a little more information would be helpful such as... More

My husband and myself sent 2 nights at hotel. The only fault I had was that I was in a wheelchair and we had to go through 4 double doors wasn't the easiest room to get to, but.. The room was lovely bit small for my wheelchair but ok. Breakfast was lovely and the staff

What a lovely Valentines Evening event, the 4 course meal was beautifully cooked and presented and the lady singer was just perfect for the occasion. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the executive rooms, although not massive had everything you could need for an overnight stop...the ensuite shower room was bright and clean with a really efficient...

This place is dirt cheap. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for - a really badly managed hotel, although the staff try to be as helpful as they can. Don't expect rolling acres of parkland the website suggests, this hotel is almost surrounded by badly designed schools and massive KCC construction works.

Beautiful old building. My dad informed me it used to be an asylum, but that didn't deter us. For our young family of five they gave us two adjoining rooms, with a small foldaway camp bed for the little one (age 4). The only thing the rooms really lacked was a little bar fridge. The TV remote didn't work which... More

I stayed at Oakwood House for a one night business trip in January 2015. The hotel was very clean as was the room. The reception was speedy and efficient by pleasant staff. The room was compact but more than adequate for a one night business stay. It was very clean and the bathroom although small was very clean. The work... More

I'm currently working in Maidstone on a contract and found Oakwood via a booking website. At £45 b&b it looked good value and I wasn't disappointed. Although finding the place in the dark was a challenge depending on what entrance you use to access the campus. There are educational establishments on what I can only describe as a campus but...
