We were greeted by our host, Bob, who, we felt, went the extra mile. Our room and bathroom were exceptionally clean and well decorated and furnished. Bob escorted us down to the local Pub, The Dove Cote Inn, where we had a fantastic meal. Breakfast was wonderful and we could not have asked for more. Unfortunately, we only stayed the... More

Do not miss this one. It is well worth the 4 star rating and even more. Bob is a great host and is so considerate and helpful with all the local area. The rooms are so comfortable and so well furnished. You will love it Maureen and Don

Thank you so much for such a great review! I had volunteered to be a "Gamesmaker" at the Olympics and Paralympics, and had not intended to open my B+B during this period. In agreement with Oren we worked out a plan for the week to suit his family needs and my shifts at the Olympic Park. It worked out brilliantly... More

Four of us stayed with Bob for the Jubilee weekend, he is the most amazing, helpful and friendly host and nothing is too much trouble.The cottage is spotlessly clean,and the rooms are well furnished and very comfortable. Thank you Bob for making us so welcome. Will highly recommend this B & B to anyone. Anthea, John, Neville, Yvonne

We needed accommodation for 2 nights to attend a wedding on 5 June. I am a native of Kent and my husband and I usually stay with relatives, but on this occasion they had a houseful of other wedding guests so we discovered Birling House on the internet and have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I think we all were lifted by the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, both national and local, plus the breakfast table chatter with our Californian guests was great fun. Thank you so much for such kind words - come back soon! Bob More

Bob made us very welcome with a lovely pot of tea on arrival (the first of many - despite there being really good facilities in the room), he gave us some really helpful advice on where to eat and places of local interest, all of which we were most impressed with. We had a very comfortable stay and the breakfasts... More

Thank you very much for your kind words, the weather could have spoiled your weekend but a sample of Kent's attractions, a great local pub, and an "international" mix of guests at breakfast made it good for all. Come back soon - the weather must improve! Bob More

Bob is an incredibly friendly, caring and of course helpful host. We stayed at Birling House 2 nights so we could be close by Pembury college and yet enjoy the best of the surounding countryside.

We stayed at Birling House just before Christmas and Bob could not have done more to make us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble, from the welcoming cup of tea on arrival, to booking our dinner reservation for the evening. We slept in the double room which was extremely comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was also excellent. Thank... More
