Spent one night there. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the food is gorgeous. It's a beautiful location. The rooms, although a short walk away from where you eat, are very clean, modern and comfortable. All lovely. Only one thing, the walls between the cabins are not brilliantly sound-proofed. If you have noisy neighbours you might find it... More

My husband and i visited this hotel for a mini honeymoon. When we got there at 11am we were told we couldnt book in until 3pm, we spoke to the reception staff and explained we had travelled a long way, they were realy kind and sorted us out a room after 15 mins. The room was lovely, very clean and... More

The pub itself is very welcoming with friendly and polite staff, hop ranks on the ceiling are very quaint touch. The food served here is just gorgeous, always a varied menu and served to the... More

I stayed here with my daughter & granddaughter first night in & last night out on a weektrip to the UK. The inn has an "olde worlde" appearance, with hop ranks on the ceilings, and a solid, good kitchen. The room we booked was for 3 persons - added bed adequate. Clean and neat, with outdated geese-ornaments. All the staff... More

We live locally & will always recommend The Black Horse at Thurnham. A good roast dinner in a restaurant is hard to find but we never leave here disappointed. There is always good selection of specials on offer & the staff are always welcoming & aim to please. Would definately recommend.

Stayed here in early August 2014 with a group of friends for an event at the nearby events centre. The accommodation is in a series of connected small chalet rooms in the steeply sloping gardens. We had ones at the bottom of the hill, in the trees. It was very peaceful and pleasant. Dinner and breakfast were back up the... More

Stayed here for my cousins wedding. A beautiful venue, to spend time with family and friends. We stayed here with our dog for the night, which was perfect, the rooms are in small blocks like a complex and ideal for a short break. The room was clean and had everything you could possibly need. There was tea/coffee making facilities, nice... More
