My husband and I stayed for four nights at Birling House to attend our niece's wedding in nearby Penshurst Place. Our room was well equipped and the beds extremely comfortable - the bathroom was very modern and everything you could possibly want was readily available. Bob was very welcoming and friendly and his breakfasts were varied, plentiful and delicious with... More

Family weddings can be wonderful or stressful - I am so pleased that yours was the latter! At such a grand location as Penshust Place, set in some of Kents lovliest countryside, I am so pleased that all went perfectly. My guests certainly seem pleased with my membership of the Kent Breakfast scheme, living here there are plenty of excellent... More

I cannot fault this delightful bed & breakfast. We needed somewhere at the last minute and we were so lucky to find this little gem. The hospitality shown to us from the moment we arrived was just what we needed. The rooms are very comfortable (the bedding was a dream) and the Kent breakfast was perfect. Thank you Bob.

I really appreciate you taking time out to write a review and especially your encouraging comments. Different guests, visiting for a variety of reasons, need different things from their chosen B+B, sometimes it is just a calm environment with all the basics catered for. I do hope you will return here soon. Bob More

I have visited tonbridge regularly for part of my degree and have stayed at Birling house every time. My stay has always been made very welcoming and lovely. The rooms are comfortable and cosy with everything provided that you may need. The traditional English breakfasts are lovely. This is the nicest B and B that I have stayed in and... More

We recently stayed at Birling House when we were visiting family and we both agreed that this was probably the best B & B we had stayed in. The house itself is lovely, a real country cottage with flowers round the door with a beautiful garden. Inside there is a spacious guest sitting room and a lovely light dining area... More

Birling House is an excellent choice and we were glad to have found it. The owner, Bob, is friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is just what we wanted; lovely setting and a great locally sourced breakfast. The pub down the road is excellent too and we really appreciated the loan of a torch to guide our short walk there.

Thank you so much for a great review! I am very lucky to have such an excellent pub / restaurant just around the corner - I will pass on to them your comments.

There is no exaggeration in all the excellent reviews on this site. My brother and I were visiting our elderly mother and found this a very comfortable stay.

What a great couple of nights my sister and I had staying at Birling House. Bob was a perfect hoast who helped us with local history.

I really enjoyed playing a part in your trip down memory lane - especially the research into hop farms of the 60s. How perfect that you were able to trace and visit your family haunts - especially the old hoppers huts at our local farm. Obviously a trip to the Dovecote Inn, a real Kentish pub, made for an excellent... More
