I was booked in here by another hotel that had accepted a booking from me but had, in error, ("Computer Glitch") sold the room twice. These things happen. I was told that the hotel was a 3 star and, as such, an equivalent to the hotel I should have been in. Entry into the car park was very difficult because... More

I most certainly should have taken the time to read the reviews prior to booking but on this occasion I had to book at relatively short notice and so I assumed that for £60 a night (bed only) the hotel would be basic but adequate as a base for getting in to London. How wrong could I be? The reception... More

Room 16 I opened the door I smelt the damp and then saw the rotten skirting boards. It was too late to find another hotel and I had paid up front. The brown carpet looked like modern art due to the spillages and stains.The bed was damp. The roller blind ,that wouldn't retract,covered a window so dirty that it looked... More

I could not have been more shocked at the state of this hotel. It was filthy, there was someone else's hair all over the shower, the sink was covered in black bits, there were stains on the carpet, the bottom of the bedsheets, and walls. Staff were rude, condescending and unhelpful. I ended up contesting the extortionate price of the... More

I should have read the three previous reviews before booking. I cannot fault these reviews. I agree entirely regarding the smell of the room added to by the ghastly freshener used to try and disguise it. It was small cramped and dirty. Window adjacent to a walk way was a security hazard. We couldn't face the breakfast and left.

We arrived at the Moorings expecting basic accommodation... It was certainly that! A lovely selection of mould in the rooms, used soap, black lace curtains, stains and dirt everywhere and an individual aroma in some rooms! The highlight of the trip was the mouse traps in the dining room and behind the bar... At least no mouse was attached to... More

As soon as we arrived at the hotel, the car park was full so there was nowhere to park the car. Bad start. Then we checked in and found out that breakfast was an additional £5 and the Wi-Fi was also an additional £5. Then we got to room 224. The room was boiling, cramped, smelt of mould, dirty, and...

The facility in conveniently located within walking distance of the Sevenoaks railroad station and a short ride into central London. However, that's the only positive I can take away from my stay at the Moorings.The hotel is not well cared for, plaster fallen from the ceilings, wall paper peeling off walls and paint chipping and the whole place needs a...

Not cheap at £80 a night, plus £5 breakfast, plus £2 parking. Room was dirty & mouldy with paper peeling off the walls. I was a female on my own and felt distinctly vulnerable. Ground floor room with men wandering past, peering in. Brealfast was a non starter. Stuck to self cooked toast when I saw Indian (owner?) with cigarette... More

I spoke to a very rude Indian man whilst requesting invoices and he called me stupid! Refused to refund the room after we made the incorrect booking. It was our mistake but he had over a week to rebook the room to someone else. Disgusting customer services. I would advise against booking!
