Many thanks for your great review. There is certainly plenty of atmosphere on warm evenings during the summer months out on the patio area. We have live music frequently on Friday and Saturday nights and more chilled out sessions some Sunday afternoons. We hope to see you soon Kind regards The Management Team More

My friend and I stayed here for 6 days. I had seen the photos on the web and the rooms were even better in person. Often the pictures of the hotel rooms look great on the web but smaller or shabbier in person. The decor is so pleasant, the staff is extremely hard working and willing to please and the... More

We have just recently moved to the area within the last couple of weeks and are still trying to find our bearings but quickly discovered that Tenterden is our closest town and my son and I had a wander round last Monday looking at the various menus on offer before he decided that the pizza here sounded "amazing!!".

This was a fab trip away! Freshly ground coffee with a cafetière, white company goodies and freshly made biscuits- it was all the personal touches that made this stay great. Really friendly staff, brilliant value pizza deal on the Monday night. Definitely worth going for one of the bigger rooms, ours was beautiful! Parking fine and breakfast lovely.

We are rather confused by your comments as you were advised there was a band playing in the bar on check in and offered an alternative room at the rear of the hotel. Your response was " it's ok, we are not the type to complain on a website"! As we weren't full on this particular evening, there were plenty... More
