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

My stay was to attend / perform at a wedding in the spectacular grounds and hall of Penshurst place, so the location of the hotel could be better, unless you want to sleep in the graveyard or the church. I do have to agree with some of the other reviewers regarding the absence of furniture in the rooms but of... More

A lovely hotel in Kent. Could not fault the service, in particular the hotel manager. Very atmospheric dinning room overlooking the fields. There were not many people in the dinning room, but it was nice that all the tables had their candles lit, and lovely food. Agree with earlier comment, no wardrobe or draws, but there were coat hangers and... More

We booked a 2 day stay here and it was excellent. The room was lovely and the 3 course meal on our second evening was faultless. The staff were very obliging and Gemma in particular was a star, looking after us so well & gave us lots of useful information. We would certainly stay here again.
