I'm sorry but when there is so much competition for your business it is just not acceptable to provide what this hotel would describe as "pillows". A good pillow is essential to a good nights sleep and I am afraid the four provided to me were simply appalling, there is just no excuse for it, just poor standards. A bar... More

The food was ok it was very reasonable but just adequate.It is a wonderful place if you are interested in motor racing but as it does not appeal to us we found... More

I stayed here for two nights in August whilst working nearby and I had an enjoyable time. My room was to a good standard apart from the high pressure shower and the very thin curtain which meant a flood and raised tiles that smelt damp. I ordered room service both nights and it was really nice food although I ordered... More

Reception staff were great, considering the hotel was near enough at capacity they had time for us and even managed to swap one of the rooms from a double to a twin. The health club manager was also great, big smile and patiently explained everything even though it was late on a Friday evening. Considering this is a 3* the... More

My partner and I stayed here recently as members of a coach party. It was a very hot spell of weather, and our first problem was that there was a heated towel rail in the bathroom contributing to the already overheated atmosphere. There was no air conditioning in the room, so this made it quite uncomfortable. When we asked if... More

Stayed with a large group touring Nat Trust properties.When we arrived, the noise from Brand's Hatch was deafening and we could not close the window because the room had no air con and was stifling.To their credit, they did move us to a better room with air con which made sleeping more bearable but it was still noisy. The decor... More

Older hotel nicely refurbished. Has lounge bar with food, sports bar & restaurant. Room was very spacious with nice bathroom and big soaker tub, heated towel rail. Mini fridge, kettle and goodies. There is no lift so struggled with suitcase. One would not want to have heavy luggage or racing equipment. The hotel is right beside the race track, a... More
