We had been to the Innkeepers Lodge at Maidstone and made the first and only complaint about our stay. We were offered 2 complimentary nights anywhere by the chain and chose Maidstone as it is close to elderly Father in law. We weren't expecting much but as it's a long journey booked 3 nights (2 of which were free). It... More

Stayed for one night in the family room in Mid August 2013. Staff were most welcoming and friendly, the family room is huge, clean, comfortable and is more like a small suite, with armchairs, table and two dressing tables. The breakfast room was lovely, bright, and everything a plenty. I opted for the cooked breakfast and it was good size... More

I stayed here for 2 nights for work in the Maidstone area. It is a 5 min walk from Maidstone East train station, so good location. The hotel is above the pub/restaurant, but as I stayed mid-week it wasn't very noisy. The building itself is very nice and the best things about it are by far the excellent quality of... More

Stayed here on New Years Eve. Staff are, without exception, brilliant. They made us feel so welcome - I do hope Vintage inns are aware, and appreciate, what an asset these people are. I couldn't pick one out as they were all outstanding. This is a wonderful old building of military origin - Georgian I would guess. They have retained... More

Stayed here for one night on business because it is an easy 300 metres from Maidstone East station. Spacious room with a good tea tray but no toiletries, although they do offer a service if you have forgotten anything. Bear in mind this is a pub so quite noisy until closing time and the outside lighting remains on which is... More

If you are looking for a decent room for a short stay in Maidstone this lodge offers a good option. The pub is a Vintage Inn part of the Mitchell and Butler empire. Food is decent, well prepared pub classics. They do have real ale, but last time I visited the selection was poor - go to the Flower Pot... More

A very good deal on the room, £30 for the night was cheap, although if you are asked for in excess of £45 go to a premier inn! I have eaten in vintage inns before, and the standard is low, but this one failed even by the normal poor standards. Starter, "field mushrooms on walnut bread" consisted of three small... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Built in 1797 to house the officers' quarters of the Invicta Barracks, this distinctive lodge is one of the most welcoming hotels in Maidstone. Rather than repelling Napoleonic troops it now serves as relaxing budget accommodation for short breaks and business travel, and is ideally placed for exploring Kent or nearby towns like Chatham and East Malling.The colonial-style building offers 12 comfy rooms and a cosy pub, where you can unwind with a pint of cask ale and some freshly cooked, seasonally inspired food.Maidstone is Kent's business heart, but there's plenty to see and do besides attending an event at the East Malling Conference Centre. It's best known as home to the beautiful Leeds Castle, with its 500 acres of scenic parkland and popular golf course, but you could also enjoy the town's theatres, bars or busy shopping centre. Or you could explore the area via water, taking a canoe along the River Medway or a more leisurely boat trip on the Allington Belle or Kentish Lady. ... more   less
