Countryside location just outside Tonbridge with free parking. Good sized bedrooms with shower and a quiet nights sleep. Good pub restaurant food on site, but nothing much else around within walking distance. No lift to the rooms.

We ate here with the kids for lunch last Tues. Excellent food, massive portions. Service excellent. Toilets (which is a big thing for us ladies) were imnaculate. You will love it here. We will become repeated guests!

Our 2nd visit wasn't quite as successful as the first. Same bedroom, bed still wonderfully comfortable, bathroom great, but didn't appreciate the early Sunday morning noise from the room upstairs. I understand from another review that this was probably staff getting up for work. The noise then transferred downstairs - lots of movement and coughing! It wouldn't stop me staying... More

Great meal in restaurant, friendly & efficient service. Room 5 was lovely, huge bath & shower. Very comfortable & spotless. Did not have breakfast had to go early. Staff live above room 5, so some noise after pub closed till 3am. Would book another room next time.

Stayed last Saturday the 9th November. We had also booked a table for 10. Food was good and the service was too. The staff are very friendly. We often eat here and like it a lot. Room 5 was a decent size and the bathroom is clean and modern. The only bum note was when we went down for breakfast... More

The Carpenters Arms is not cheap but the room and service were excellent. When I needed a wireless connection the staff were helpful, they were very flexible with meal times and they were in no hurry to get us out of the hotel on Saturday morning. Was a very relaxing stay. The atmosphere is the bar and restaurant was friendly... More

Booked in as part of a party for a family funeral. Meal was okay but lacked those little touches the price charged should have included. Ordered pint of cider, waited 15 mins, then went to the bar and got it myself. Paid the £70 a room charged but bar shut at 11 o clock, no difference for residents. My wife... More

We stayed here recently for a couple of nights, as our friends were getting married in the area. We had a double room, which was lovely and clean, but quite small (it was room #1). I just felt that £95 for a small double room was slightly expensive, especially as breakfast wasn't included. It also annoyed me slightly that the... More

Great place, lovely staff. We stayed overnight for a wedding nearby and it was a good choice. We checked in early to get to the church on time, and staff were accommodating. Room was on the small side, but the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on! Clean and recently refurbished, with lovely en-suite. Breakfast the next day was lovely,... More

This hotel is very near Tonbridge and less than 30 mins drive to Tunbridge Wells and in our view a nicer place to stay if travelling by car. There is plenty of parking, the rooms are newly decorated, there are plenty of outside tables both in front of the hotel and in the terrace garden at the rear and a... More
