We stayed at the hotel on Friday and Saturday night.
We arrived mid day on Friday and on check in, the chap on reception must have read my booking comments requesting a quiet room (which I had forgotten about having pre booked a month before online), as we had a room at the back of the hotel.
The room itself was quite compact, but functional and served its purpose perfectly. We did visit in the middle of a heatwave, and the room temperature was crazy hot with no air conditioning, but a visits to reception to request a desk fan for the room helped a great deal.
I suspect some of the rooms we passed next to fire doors and on corridors with wobbly creaky floors would be a bit noisy, but we were delighted with our quiet room.
The facilites were great - the lesuire club with the pool and jacuzzi were a fantasic releif after a day on our feet at the war and peace revival.
As part of our online booking package, we had a complimentary meal in the restaurant on Friday night. The food was good quality and the service brilliant - attentive but not intrusive.
This was repeated for breakfast buffets on both days - a simple but comprehensive buffet with attentive service.
The hotel is easy to find from the road, and in terms of local attraction, we wanted to visit the war and peace military show at Folkstone, which was 20 mins away, and Leeds castle was an easy 1/2 mile walk from the hotel.
So overall - a reasonable hotel made into a great one by the staff. Rooms can be hot.
