I wanted to book somewhere special to celebrate our 40th WA. Having eaten lunch at the restaurant a while back, I knew that the Leicestershire Arms Hotel would be the place for that, and rooms available meant we would not have to worry about the drink driving. Really comfy bed, with lovely soft sheets, excellent bath/shower and tea coffee making... More

From the road the Leicester Arms looks like a fairly small and quaint affair. Once you go in it gets better and better! From the saddles hanging in the bar, the big sofas in the lounge, big restaurant and garden this place keeps on giving. Lovely people, great food, beautiful village.

An extremely difficult experience to book, fortunately, their sister pub helped me with a booking. Thanks Matthew. Interesting enough the person on the phone who... More

Great location and a fabulous building. 5mins from the stunning Penshurst Place and Gardens. A real delight on a summers day. Room was very nice, well appointed and clean and a very comfortable bed. Patio area in the garden allows a drink in the open on a nice evening and is a nice addition. Didn't eat in the restaurant this... More

Stayed one night with my hubby and we were very impressed. Gorgeous old building in beautiful village setting, very friendly team, exceptionally delicious food and lovely bedroom. Plenty of places to visit locally, what's not to like?!

My niece had her wedding party here last Saturday (11th April) and it was fantastic. the hotel was closed to the public for the day. The food was excellent, served hot and very well cooked, a feat in itself, especially when catering for 90 guest all sitting at the same time, congratulations to the chef and his team! I advise...

My wife and 8 year old son stayed here for one night in a family room (room 8) for a rare night away. What can I say, there are not enough superlatives to describe how brilliant this hotel is. The setting is picture perfect, the surrounding countryside and walks are stunning, our room was clean and very comfortable with a... More

Lovely place , great food, appalling service. Arrived for dinner restaurant half full. Long wait to get a drink and menu, when drinks arrived the waiter spilt the beer on the table and then the wine when he was pouring it, he made no attempt to clear it up (I eventually did it myself) . Ordered the food , the... More

Our room was not made up when we came back to the hotel at the end of the day and we had to ask the staff to do... More
