We had a one night break on Groupon - so that we could revisit where we first started married life back in the 60's at Ashford. The room was clean and overlooked the village green. Unfortunately there seemed to be a bit of merriment going on outside in the evening but with the window shut we were able to watch... More

Spent just one night in the hotel. Clean, comfortable and an excellent English breakfast. The log fire in the bar was fantastic. Central location for sightseeing. Lots of military history in the surrounding areas.

After reading the bad experiences have had at this hotel we were a bit worried about our stay last Saturday. However, we was pleasantly surprised! We actually found this hotel on Wowcher and only paid £20 a night for the room. This place is lovely. The staff cannot do enough for you. Yes, the rooms are basic. But what more... More

I booked the castle for me and my partner for valentines night, I didn't know what to expect as I've never stayed in a pub/hotel combination before. My surprise was certainly a pleasant one, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and our needs were catered for at every instance. The rooms were very clean and the bed so comfortable,... More

We stayed one night using a Wowcher voucher. Our initial impression of The Castle was quite good.The pub looked really nice from the outside in a lovely location.On entering the bar was warm and cosy,and we were shown to our room by a friendly welcoming lady.That was where it all went wrong! Our twin room was dirty and tatty.There were... More

Stayed there for just the one night and we were abit apprehensive about the stay because of previous reviews. However we were not disappointed. The room was fantastic aswell as the staff & the food was amazing! Recommend the King burger highly 👌.

Booked as a romantic weekend away. On arrival staff didn't take any details. Outside room were mattresses covered in sheets to apparently hide? On entering room, the smell was breath taking! Damp!!!! Toilet was very dirty. And again the smell was terrible, could not leave door open, smell gassed room! Wardrobe knobs fell off . No light bulbs in lamp.... More

We stayed at the Castle for one night, en-route to France. We were a little apprehensive about our stay as we had read recent reviews. Whilst the 'pub' may not be a premier inn, it had its quirky surprises. We were greeted by welcoming staff who were more than happy to explain breakfast times and evening meal times. Our Saltwood...

We stayed at the Castle for two nights as we were going to a wedding at nearby Lympne Castle. We won't be staying here again and could not recommend it. First the positives - The Castle is in a brilliant location being adjacent to the village green in Saltwood which is a lovely village. The pub part inside is warm... More

Thank you for your extensive review, you have made some valid points which have been rectified. What I don't understand is that you stayed with us for 2 nights and with the severity of your review why was I nor a member of staff approached at all to rectify certain matters? Our staff have a rating on booking.com of 8.7... More

For the price we weren't expecting great things, clean and comfortable would have been fine. However there are certain things that I expect from any hotel: Decent towels - we got paper thin towels which felt like cardboard Toiletries as advertised - the soap dispenser in the shower was empty (bit late to be doing anything about that when already...

The cleaner whilst hoovering left the door propped open, she has been admonished for this. We have today (7/1/14) had a visit from the fire safety officer where all our risk assessments etc were checked with no problems. This was clearly a one off and had you reported it would have been dealt with straight away. The yard clearly suffered... More
