Absolutely disgusting room was filthy, bed bases looked like they had been rescued from a canal, clean sheets though, carpet disgracefully filthy, strong smell of damp so bad couldn't sleep, windows filthy, I don't know where they got the photos from they put on website or it was just this room. It was so bad we slept in the car.... More

Looks nice from the outside with nice garden area......shame about inside. The chalet type room we had smelt strongly of stale cigarettes, the room decor was very tired and the headboards.....well they were filthy.... I've seen better thrown down the tip ! I would not recommend this establishment at any cost. It wasn't dirt cheap price wise either. Breakfast was... More

I had builders down to do some work for me & as they traveled from out of town I decided to have them stay at The Moorings Hotel.. BIG MISTAKE!! The whole experience of this hotel from start to finish was horrendous! The 2 builders checked in and said the hotel room was completely disgusting with unclean sheets, mould, dirty... More

Well, first things first. Sevenoaks is an affluent area. Commuter links to London, very close to Canterbury and numerous other popular places. You WILL NOT find a place as cheap as The Moorings round here and for the price they charge you should expect very little. I actually stayed here for 3 months whilst working in Sevenoaks. Yes, the rooms... More

Damp, filth,mould on the ceiling,stained carpet. Not sure if sheets had been changed. In the bathroom, mould on wall tiles,hairs around plug hole, deep staining to the toilet bowl. Smell of damp really hits you on entering the hotel. Grim. I never stayed.

I would not leave my dog here!! Seriously!!! I wouldn't. I booked this hotel knowing it wasn't 'brilliant'. But I never expected it to be so 'hostile' and dirty. Check in was awkward. Not really interested ...but he escorted me to my room. My goodness... What he showed me was the worst room I have ever had the mis fortune... More

Drove up and thought it was quite pretty. Looking for somewhere for my guests to stay as I am getting married locally. Walked in with my fiancé and sister, owner was in mid conversation with two gentlemen, looked at me like I just walked in on him getting out of the shower. Asked if they had the day I wanted...

I had a nightmare at this Hotel too.....I rang the owner twice from Malta where I live to request a ground floor room as I was on crutches after breaking my leg. When we arrived the so called downstairs room was the farthest away from reception as you could have got! plus there were steps, which meant my husband and... More

Dirty, noisy, unpleasant staff, misleading bookings (when is a breakfast not included? When we "upgrade" you to a double because we don't have an available single despite accepting a booking over a month earlier so expect you to pay for your previously included breakfast (1 sausage, 2 pieces of bacon, 4 mushrooms and 1 egg - all cold)) As a...
