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.

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...

Absolutely herendous, do not stay here, dirty cold and bad staff and owners are rude. They let commuters hire the car park out to commuters during the day so you can't park when you finish work, don't stay here.

If you have ever wondered where John Cleese got his inspiration from to create Fawlty Towers, look no further than The Moorings. None of the previous reviews are exaggerated, it IS that bad! Unfriendly staff, who look like refugees, a room which is cleaned about once a month, I found food in the drawers ( honestly! ), there was rust... More
