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

stayed here 2 nights, booked into first room only to find a pair of socks in the basket with the hairdryer!! Not the best start really. The table in the room rocked when you put anything on it,so that was poor,as was the dirty cup and saucer in the room. However the reception lady was very nice and put us... More

We were not disappointed when we stepped inside this lovely building, situated in a nice village and perfect for visiting Penshurst Place literally a 2 minute walk. We received a warm welcome from two members of staff, one who showed us to our room. We had everything we needed for a weekend stay although there is no wardrobe or drawers... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. I stayed there on a particularly busy weekend and there were a few things that did annoy me. My room was not made up on the Saturday so when I came back to the hotel that evening I had to get into an unmade bed. I was also only provided with a hand towel in... More

Loved our stay here. We arrived on a cold wintery evening and sat in the bar next to an open fire. Dinner was great and service was good. The room was beautiful and finished to such a high standard. Complimentary water, toiletries and a wide range of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Room was equipped with a hair dryer and... More

Lovely welcome, stylish rooms, great atmosphere,yummy breakfast. Staff seemed overworked. Tables in bar needed a wipe mid afternoon, room needed dusting on ledges and behind headboard, and there was rubbish under the bed. Sort out the little things and this will be a fantastic little place to stay.

Sadly still no staff training. A greeting? a goodbye? a smile? some knowledge of looking after beer- That said the food is great and so is the situation. Nearly a Year on so lets see some improvement.

We risked it because we hadn't visited since it changed hands, but oh my word have they done a fabulous job! The decor is charming, lavish without being overbearing. The food is delicious and nthe service amazing; nothing was... More

This is the second lunch we have had. We noticed no menu changes or daily specials since the last visit, which was a shame. My husband ordered the same thing! It was not as good as the first experience. Chips were frozen, steak tough and overall served cold. My steak burger was served in an untoasted bun and was average.... More
