You could say the Burlington is an example of faded grandeur - with its beautiful stained glass windows - but that would be unkind. OK, the plumbing is a little antiquated but the beds are comfortable and the rooms clean and tidy. I opted for an internet pay-up-front deal without breakfast but on the second day gave in and paid... More

I booked this hotel on a recommendation from the owner of the coach company who took 30 of us on a long weekend trip to Kent. I am so glad that I did. All the staff we met during our 2 nights at the Burlington could not have been more helpful. The hotel is welcoming and the place is kept... More

The staff from reception to dining room were exceptional. I have to mention Andy the Restaurant Maitre'D, what a treasure ?. He was so accommodating and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. All public areas were kept clean etc. The Manager?could have been a bit more pleasant. The only time I saw him become a little bit animated was when... More

We booked this as a last minute getaway. The hotel was lovely and clean. Reception staff were very welcoming and the room was a good size. The only criticism would be because there was a wedding on at the hotel we couldn't use the restaurant so had to find an alternative for dinner, after dinner we thought we would try... More

Stayed here few weeks ago for two nights bed and breakfast. This is a lovely old style hotel with a piano in the foyer and wood paneling around. Rooms were very comfortable indeed. Free wifi . Lovely english breakfast. Also just metres off the front and 15mins walk into the town centre. Smashing hotel

My wife and I were married at this hotel in July, with a reception afterwards. Many of our guests stayed there for the weekend. The Functions Manager changed during the planning, but the handover was seamless. Heidi planned our wedding and reception meticulously, and helped to guide us through what was a very busy weekend. Some early confusion over our... More
