Ideally situated if you are working or visiting Maidstone area. Peace and quiet in beautiful tranquil surroundings. Stayed in same ground floor room as my first visit in 2013. Wifi signal good but mobile signal varies depending on network. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. I would highly recommend this establishment.

We stayed three nights. On the positive side, the B&B was very clean and the garden was quite lovely. The breakfast was forgettable - a bar with several cereals, coffee, yoghurt, bread and toaster, but tea was self-serve in bags, jams were cheap ones in little plastic containers of the sort found in diners, and muffins were commercial and still...

Thank you for your email. We feel a little annoyed by this couple. In the UK our rooms are not massive compared to big flash , modern hotels. It is in a converted Coachhouse in the Kent countryside and it is designed to be homely and space is at a premium. This couple from USA are obviously use to large... More

A lovely house with a beautiful garden. Room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. Owners very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were fantastic. The place is a bit isolated so you will need to drive to go out for dinner etc especially as the local cabs are very expensive. Lovely place to stay and would recommend... More

Room, staff and breakfast was excellent. We asked the lady to put our wine in the fridge and she was generally very helpful. Our only criticism is that to actually find a place to eat we had to cross an extremely busy dual highway to get to Detling. It took us 5 minutes to get across this road, queuing behind... More

This is an excellent and friendly B&B in beautiful surroundings. We stayed for one night as we had tickets to see Jools Holland at Maidstone studios. The owner gave us all of the information we needed to find where we were going and where we could eat near the studio beforehand. The B&B itself is lovely and clean and provides... More

The down side, four year advanced booking for the Kent shows. Slots are limited, so had to decamp on occasions to other places :-( On business...nice to get back to something like home, I live in the countryside up north. Breakfast...and hey hotels provide continental, not a fry up. The price of a full English makes your eyes water, this... More

This is a great place to stay. Clean, friendly and comfortable with easy access to the M2 and M20, it is a great place to base yourself if, like me, you are working in the area. As I stayed from January until April duinng the week, I can attest to how homely The Coach House is! There are plenty of... More

Nicely appointed room in good location for walking the North Downs Way. Quiet and comfortable with good quality breakfast. Host very helpful and made a welcome cup of tea on arrival. Good to have a bit of saving on the usual double room cost for a single person
