Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is More something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived.

We had afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly....or should I say two half glasses at that cost £14 the poor quality of the afternoon tea at a cost of £30 dumbfounded and disappointed is an understatement so £45 spent how can they serve such a shameful portion daylight robbery!!

I have stayed here a few times previously and when we arrived there was a sign saying they had a new management team and by God did we know it. They were very unhelpful and didn't care that our stay was ruined by everything in our room falling apart, we paid extra for a deluxe ro

I've booked a room with someone for 14th July - 3 guests with parking and breakfast. Accidentally deleted my confirmation and can't remember who I'm booked with. Is it you? Thanks. Sue McCarthy
Sorry I'm not the Marquis !

How do you actually get to speak to someone at this hotel? We have a Buyagift voucher for a gourmet weekend which we cannot book online but every time we ring the hotel it goes straight to answerphone. I have tried every day for a week and left messages but no one has got back to me.
Hi we had the same problem which is very frustrating!! Called in the morning and finally somebody answered! worth the visit if you get the chance to book!

Canterbury is a short drive away as is an excellent outlet centre at Ashford. Slightly further away but worth the drive is Bluewater.

"Rooms facing the main road can be a bit noisy but it has double glazing which cuts the noise down a lot. No real issue."
"Did not stay over, only ate lunch."
"Make a request at the time of booking not when you arrive"
"All rooms would be quiet."
"All rooms are described as luxury but would suggest you ask to see the room you have booked - our room felt a little claustrophobic."
