A evening out in Maidstone required an overnight stay. Having trawled the internet for a half decent hotel and a decent price the Grange Moor stood out from the others. The price for room + B&B was better than the prices for a stay without Breakfast at the close by Travelodge and Premier.
Small reception area with pleasant helpful staff was a good start. Room we had was on the first floor. Corridors leading to rooms may not be the most up to date but they are clean. Room doors could do with modernising and are not aesthetically pleasing. The Room itself was a little on the small side but it was well equipped with TV, tea and coffee making facilities and adequate storage space. The bathroom was, again, a touch small but was modern, clean and suitable equipped. Room was warm and radiators had individual thermostats so it was it was nice to have the room as warm or as cold as you liked.
We decided to have an evening meal in the hotel before venturing out in to Maidstone centre. The menu was varied and well priced, as was the drinks list. All food is freshly prepared and cooked and I have to say was of a better standard than I had expected. Portion size was more than adequate and the service extremely good. The bar itself could do with a bit of an overhaul but I am possibly picking a bit really.
Breakfast was decent. There is a 'help yourself' section for cereals, tea, coffee, fruit juice, yogurt, fruits etc and a full cooked breakfast upon request. Breakfast is served from 8 - 9.30 but feel this should probably be extended to 10am especially as weekends. We ventured down just before 9am is was reasonably quiet but when we left at 9.25 the room was packed and things got a bit hectic.
All in all a pleasant stay, service very indeed, some modernising wouldn't go a miss. Adequate parking for everyone, a bonus at any hotel. Good location which is about 10 minutes walk from Maidstone central.
