Nice place for a short stay. Good value, quiet yet close to main road, good breakfast. Our bedroom was small but adequate for short stay. En suite bathroom, plumbing needs attention. Tea/ coffee facilities in room. No evening meal available but pub food not far away. Off road parking, free wifi.

Really well located just off the main road - walking distance to Kent Showground or easy drive to Leeds Castle and Maidstone centre. Private parking, free Wi-Fi and seating provided in the well-kept gardens which is the perfect picnic spot. The welcome was very friendly and the breakfast was cooked fresh to order with continental also available. The bed in... More

'We stayed as we were attending a concert at Detling. Our room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It had a large bathroom with a good shower. We were made a coffee on arrival which was a really nice touch. Would definitely stay here again.'

A friend and i stayed here last night, having been to an event at the Kent Showground which is literally a few feet away. Despite its proximity to the showground the area is very quiet and is truly beautiful. The garden is beautiful with a lovely pond and water features. The only drawback of this is that its a fair...

Thanks for your great review. All mattresses have a protector, not sure why you didn't have one. Also we have started using higher quality jams. Thanks again. More

A lovely little B&B right on the doorstep of the Kent Showground in Detling. All of the staff I bumped into were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was of good quality, with a reasonable selection of cooked items as well as a Nespresso machine, cereal fruit and juices. It is only a small property but I didn't have any... More

Off the main road down a quiet lane and you find the Coach House. The hot drink and biscuit on arrival is a nice touch also being able to select your breakfast time is a nice change. Breakfasts are very tasty and a good size. The area around is good for quiet walks but you will need a car to... More

Needed a good (and in budget) night's stay for a business trip, and was recommended Detling House by a customer. Upon turning up, I was not disappointed. The house is lovely, olde-worldly and in lovely settings. I was treated warmly, and shown to my room. I was then bought a cup of tea to my room whilst I settled in,... More

Dear BeerMonster. We are very sorry you had cold water but now and again the newly installed pump will need a reset. This is simply turning on and off at the plug and that will reset the pump.
