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!

This is a real budget hotel. If you just want to get your head down and be near to the station then this might do for you. The room itself was clean, but the common areas were very scruffy. No hair drier by the way and full fat milk, which I think is yucky in tea. The breakfast was freshly... More

All the bad reviews are absolutely perfectly described, there was damp and mould spores absolutely everywhere, the damp was so bad that within 15 minutes of been in there I could feel it in my lungs and my breathing was effected (I'm a perfectly healthy 33 year old man with no asthma eg). there was dead bugs all over the...

I stayed here with my daughter. We were given a twin room in the attic which was up the main staircase and then further on up on another staircase which was so steep that it frightened the life out of me! Surely this must be against health and safety regulations as if a fire had broken out I saw no... More

Staff were not very welcoming. The carparking spaces were very small, difficult to park our small car. Wi-fi was advertised as "free" but the proprieter asked for 5 pounds in exchange for the password. The room was small and the ensuite as small as they come. Heard every footfall in the room above and there were sounds of a laundry... More

Stayed here whilst working locally. It is close to town (if you drive ... really big Hill). 2 second walk from train station. Check in was quick and receptionist showed us to our rooms and actually put us in rooms closer to each other. The rooms were basic but small. We were out the back which resembled butlins chalets. But... More

generally dilapidated, with argumentative individual in reception. room décor was generally poor. the worst aspect was the lack of light with a fairly large room being lit by one tiny low energy lamp, the other 2 bulbs were either removed or broken. similarly one dim bedside light out of 2 worked. mercifully the chair provided just about fitted the en...
