Your wedding is supposed to be a magical and oe of the best days of you life, my wedding day was far different! It all started when me and my husband booked the inn on the lake as our venue: 1. They lost £450.00 that paid to the hotel in cash so we couldn't prove otherwise (when the hotel manager... More

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my belated reply. I was truly astonished when I first noticed your review about the hotel. As I explained to you during our last meeting before your wedding, the £450.00 was accidently not paid, which at the time, you did agree, in front of myself and my colleague. When we had... More

We stay at this hotel quite a lot, as we have family in this area. We enjoy the breakfast. Always plenty to eat. We always pay for a twin bed room, which is basic but also ok for our needs. We are having a lakeside view at Christmas. Some of the rooms need updating although are fine for our needs.

Set right on the side of the motorway, this is the kind of place that you stay for one night and leave in the morning. A sort of Travelodge with marginally bigger rooms. The Inn on the lake does the job, it's a bed and a breakfast, and parking. If you're unlucky, like me, there will be a noisy wedding... More

We booked an over night stay with a Coach company Diamond Holidays to the Tall Ships Festival in London last weekend. Incidentally it was our second time with Diamond holidays (the first time it was a coach holiday for a week in Scotland a few months ago) and on both the occasions when we got to the hotels, we were...

I found this place as needing to be in the area the next morning. Check in was very easy and friendly. Rooms are a bit tired and fixtures a bit dated but it's fine for a night. Have a nice view of the lake although can currently hear the band playing louder than the TV as a wedding party going... More

Stayed here for 1 night on route to Dover ferry. Rooms were quite big with lovely view over the Lake and large patio style doors. Check inn was superb as they got us into the room early after arriving very early. Fixtures and fittings a bit tired but didn't cause a problem. As we were having to leave before a... More

After reading mixed reviews of the inn on the lake. I am Pleased to say all staff were friendly and hotel which has been refurbished turned out to be a pleasant surprise. We had a lakeside room with a quiet efficient celling fan to cool us down during the hot weather. The ducks were an added attraction if you like... More

The only good thing about this hotel is that the beds are comfortable. We stayed the night of my daughter's wedding, also at the hotel. She paid for the guests rooms and they took the money twice, which is a regular occurrence from what we have been told. The receptionist was very rude about it. They ripped her off for... More

Stayed here on way back from France and found it to be a well appointed hotel. Rooms were of a good size although a bit of updating of the décor would be nice but still it was clean .The food in the restaurant and bar was really reasonable and breakfast was good. The area was good to visit with Chatham... More
