A great experience for our overnight stay at this pub situated on Tenterden High Street. Simply park in the car park behind the pub and grab a pass from the check in desk. Every staff member we dealt with was very friendly and polite and cheerful. The room was comfortable with pleasant décor. We had a pizza from the imported... More

I've been staying here for the past decade when visiting England. It has changed hands twice in that time, as has the décor, which is now rather trendy. I usually stay in the same, en-suite room which is spacious, having a super kingsize bed, tables and armchairs. A table for my workstation with tea and fresh coffee making facilities. The... More

perhaps I shouldn't give such positive reviews - the White Lion has been fully booked the last few times I've been in the area and I've had to stay in the London Beach instead. it's a lovely inn with individual rooms decorated to a high standard. the food is good and the continental breakfast is limited but good quality. refreshments...

We stayed overnight as we were visiting a local vineyard, the room was nicely done & was clean, the food was ok, but unfortunately the service was very slow. At breakfast one fellow guest even went into the kitchen to see if anyone was about. They did explain that they were short staffed, which didn't appear to be the case... More

We both enjoyed our stay at the White Lion. Car park at the back of hotel, friendly welcome and great unusual room. Wifi connected quickly. Lovely stroll alone the quaint high street, where there are plenty of shops. Booked a table for an evening meal which was delicious, service good. Would certainly stay again.

As my wife and I arrived at the White Lion for our one night b&b the rain was coming down in stair-rods (if there are such things these days). Cold and wet, and having left our car in the car park round the back, we rang the bell in reception. From that point, everything improved. We were given a warm... More

This is a lovely pub with nice rooms, friendly staff, super local ales and comfortable ambiance. Our super king-size bed was wonderfully comfortable with plump (but not too much so) pillows and additional cushions, soft duvet, good quality linen and individual throws. The soft robes, fresh ground coffee and home baked biscuits were excellent touches and fresh milk was available... More

Planning a weekend in Kent needed to book a hotel. Didn't really matter where I booked but wanted somewhere inexpensive clean and easy to get to. Found The White Lion on the Internet, checked it out on trip advisor. The rooms were small modern but pretty basic. No hairdryer tissues or even shower cap although the toiletries were The White...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Some of our rooms on the 2nd floor do have lower ceilings and wherever possible we try to accommodate guests accordingly, although not always possible on internet bookings. I'm sorry you didn't manage to find the hairdryer - they are kept in drawstring bags in the drawer/basket. Hopefully if you... More

My friends and I, had a really enjoyable stay at White Lion. The place is really smart, and presentable with lots of style and pride. They have made a really good effort with the rooms, and they have done a brilliant job. Breakfast very nice, and enjoyed all the small treats that made a big difference- its the little things!...
