The reception of this hotel leads to a bar and sitting area, which are nicely decorated. The building is impressive and the grounds are well kept. Initial impressions are positive, however sadly the rooms are then very disappointing. Our room was in the attic. It was clean, but very tired. The bathroom was poor. This could be a lovely hotel,...

I stayed in room 306 and everything was worn out, even the curtains had been eaten away. If it wasn't for the fact that I was there for business purposes, booked by the company, I would have left. The floorboards in the room above are so creaky you have to get up when they arise, in my case 06:30. It... More

I say surprisingly as reading other TA reviews gave me certain misgivings. However from an initial phone call to check I wouldn't be in one of the 'attic' rooms, to the pleasant welcome (and it was almost midnight) to the well-appointed room - all was good. It was a very short stay, but a pleasant one. My only qualm was... More

Shockingly tatty hotel. First room we were shown in attic was smelly unbelievably shabby and with a bathroom from the 1920's. Room we ended up in , in the equally tatty annexe, not much bètter and freezing. Great shame as the bar and dning room look perfectly presentable and the staff were fine. Needs a very major overhaul. To be... More

I got put in a single room in the roof, it was very narrow and pretty shabby. The reception area and bar are fine and have been updated, its a pitty all the rooms haven't. Sevenoaks is nice but don't think I'd stay here again.

We stayed in the executive suite for one night. It is a really big room, well heated too. I thought the carpets were a little stained but when you have a couple of cheap car mats to wipe your feet on, I suppose it won't stay clean for long. It certainly isn't enough to put us off though, as we... More

Checking in a nightmare, apparently my booking was cancelled, (by booking.com?) 'luckily' they had a spare room. Stayed two nights in a claustrophobic attic room. Peeling wallpaper, sloped ceilings, rattling wooden windows, old springy mattress. Poor value for money. Website states iron & hairdryer in the rooms but I had to go to reception for these, (phone in the room... More
