This hotel was booked for us as members of a wedding group. It is very convenient and the staff are pleasant. However our room was small, with a low ceiling and a tiny, poor quality, mouldy shower cubicle, with a sluggish drain. This was promptly cleaned when we complained. The bed was comfortable and linen and towels fresh and clean,... More

Our double room with sofa was very comfortable for our B&B stay. The bar staff were friendly as were the restaurant staff. Breakfast was satisfying and our one evening meal experience was most enjoyable. There was no loud music, and the furnishings and decor were quaintly tasteful with a transport emphasis. A great thing for us was the location of... More

You were one of many happy Gills fans in the bar. At least they were happy until they read your review and all of them to a man are appalled by your words against a much loved and respected barmaid . Firstly you were not here at 5.45 as the train did not arrive until 5.52. Not sure how you... More

A pleasant surprise for a last minute booking!! I visited The Shepherd Neame Brewery on a business trip, which was booked very last minute. The thought of staying across the road to the railway station was daunting....But I must say the hospitable welcome from the very friendly staff to the comfortable room and great shower (not to mention tea and...

I stayed here with my husband on what must be one of the busiest Saturdays on the calendar. We arrived around 5pm and were greeted by a member of bar staff who checked us in and showed us to our room. The greeting was very friendly and professional and our room was very pleasant indeed with lots of original features.... More

Stayed one night as we were going out to dinner with friends. Arrived approx 2.30 and was met by a very friendly lady working behind the bar, she took us straight upto our room. Lovely and clean, nice sheets, good size room and even better, tea, coffee and biscuits, so we could make ourselves a drink. Went for a walk... More

Recently stayed at this hotel and it was not a very pleasant experience. The manager/owner was one of the most unhelpful rude person I have met ! The rooom was over heated,(no control over the radiator) so we had to sleep with the window open. The bathroom had no blinds or curtains only net curtains with a direct veiw out... More

All hoteliers will know there are bookings that should never have happened and this was one of them. The question of the spare bed was 100 per cent the guests mistake. The booking notes clearly show no demand for that extra bed because the bride who booked the rooms stated that she was OK for the beds to be pushed... More

I must first say I primarily chose this hotel for the price and the exceptionally brilliant location for the station (ignore the map, the station is literally across the road from the station entrance!), and it was my first proper visit apart from a change of trains to Faversham. After arriving by bus from Canterbury (the number 3 bus from... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October. Friendly welcome and room was all we needed. Although a little dated and tired looking the room was clean with great storage and the bed really comfortable. There was plenty of tea, coffee hot chocolate etc and these were filled daily.and the free WiFi was excellent. A bit of an issue with the... More
