Unfortunately a mix up in hotel bookings for a nearby wedding, forced us to pay 90 pounds to stay in this horrible hotel. I cannot impress enough how ugly the 'decor' is, how dirty the room, cramped the bathroom, and bad the service. I notice that other reviewers feel the same. How have they not renovated? Or improved service? Why... More

On arrival after several minutes wait the manager appeared and was exceptionally brusque towards my wife in front of another guest. Shown to our room which appeared, on the surface, fine. However, upon closer inspection the room was filthy, a rusty shower rail, shaver light not working, broken flush on the toilet, hot tap on hand basin was faulty with... More

The reason I put 2 stars instead of 1 was because the sheets were clean & bed was actually comfortable!!!!! There was no carpet which was probably a good thing and the floor was ok. It also looked like the room had been recently painted as there was paint on the curtains! What infuriated us was that the owner/manager is... More

Ok - so Sevenoaks doesn't have hotels - what it does have is its very own Fawlty Towers in the form of this hotel, except you can't really call this a hotel. It's dreadful. The owner is incredibly rude and can't make a decision. For the price the accommodation is appalling and not particularly clean. It certainly is very dated... More

Was booked in here for 4 nights by my company in July and arrived about 1930. Looked quite pretty from outside so I went in. Must say that the receptionist wasn't as rude as others have found but that is where complements end. I was shown to one of the chalets in the garden, linked to road through open gate.... More

Please do not make the mistake I made by ignoring the bad reviews. After 1 night I tried to find something else but unfortunately everywhere close by was full. The carpets dirty and covered with stains. Skirting boards and dado rails had about an inch of dust (although later on they were cleaned) toilet flush lever did not work, you... More

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
