Stayed here for the night before a trip to France. Arrived to empty reception desk, rang bell and had to walk round to kitchen and call out. Room was cold, window open and at front of building which is on main road. Only single glazing so very noisy all night. Carpets dirty, huge cobwebs in room, congealed hair in the... More

I needed an en suite room for one night in order to attend functions in Ashford and Wye, so the Croft was ideally situated. I decided to ignore bad reviews on this site and was very glad I did as they were grossly unfair. My single room was comfortable, clean, nicely decorated with an immaculate shower/toilet having Persil white towels... More

A great, clean, affordable accommodation which had everything I needed. The staff were polite snd the manager very helpful and approachable. I was only booked for one night but lengthened my stay here. Definitely have no reason to not recommend. I would choose The Croft again!

We booked in with serious delays and misunderstanding. The management is really not interested in doing his duties. I suggest that he take a people skills course ASAP and a health and safety course. Restaurant food is not good I'm sorry to say😦😦😦😦

I booked here as it was cheap & convenient. Big mistake! I was on a 7am flight & arrived at the croft "hotel" around 11am & the place was closed up with no answer at the door, we called to request an early check in or at least to drop our bags but were told maybe around 1pm. As much... More

Worst place I've ever stayed in. On arrival we had to collect keys from under the mat as there was nobody on reception, this was after calling the manager. The room was far from clean, there is a damp smell around the room. Also all the pillows on both beds had no pillow cases and the pillows were very stained.... More

We stayed here for a cheap accommodation with access to Brands Hatch, but it wasn't very cheap and the hotel is very tired. The staff were helpful enough, if not particularly enthusiastic. It is a friendly place, and the beds were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was pleasant enough, but expensive and instant coffee passed off as freshly brewed. However,... More

Room was very clean but lacking in the little touches like decent towels, chair by the desk/dressing table, spare pillow. Comfortable, king size bed but keep the windows closed if you're not used to traffic noise. Floor was laminate wood which was cold to the feet even on a hot July night. We thought we'd booked for bed & breakfast... More
