The hotel was fantastic, the room was lovely, location was great and the food was superb. All of the staff were extremely friendly and made me feel very welcome. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and it is very children friendly

This is a beautiful hotel! Great food, great staff and lovely rooms! The shower in the bathroom is one of the best compared to other hotels i've stayed in! Only downside is, as a business woman travelling alone it would be nice to have the option of room service as it can be quite uncomfortable sitting in a restaurant on... More

We decided to meet here as a 'central' point from our respective start points. The route was good, and car parking easy, on visiting it was clear that the Carpenters Arms was a popular place with locals and visitors alike. The food was warm, served promptly and of a very high standard and with the warm and friendly reception I'd... More

Stayed here for one night on the 27th Dec as we were visiting family nearby, what a lovely pub and restaurant. The rooms are exceptionally high quality and so clean. The service was very warm and friendly, with little log fires all round the pub. Breakfast in the morning was marvellous, wish we were staying longer. Thank you to all... More

The Carpenters Arms is a popular pub with nice, friendly staff, good food and good beer. The rooms are modern and very nicely furnished, with simple clean décor. It is very comfortable. Although it is located on a country lane, it is well-used so if you sleep with the window open you may notice some traffic passing. One improvement which... More

Gorgeous pub set down a quiet road in a picturesque village. What a good start. Plenty of parking, friendly helpful staff and a beautiful room with a large en suite. May I rave about the shower ? Huge, lovely and with the on/off controls outside the screen. Genius. Good food, log burning stove, decent price (for the SE), breakfast well... More

We were overwhelmed by the staff at this very smart pub. We arrived late due to traffic and a four hour drive and we could not have been made any more welcome. Our supper was cooked at the end of the day and was superb the staff met us and made us feel so pleased that we had chosen to... More

Had pigeon and lime jelly that just melted in my mouth I was in heaven. it was ambient and busy but laid out in such a way and the right catch of clientele that didn't overpower our conversation. we couldn't hear a word anyone else was saying. they're getting it right in this tightly run ship

And I have a nice home. I've been staying at the Carpenters Arms every month or so for awhile now when I've had business in Tonbridge. I am generally wary of pubs pretending to be hotels, or pubs pretending to be gastro pubs for that matter. The Carpenters Arms is a revelation. The rooms have a real boutique hotel feel,... More
