We spent two nights here and could have spent all our time in the house taking in all the Victoriana, especially the historic phots of Queen Victoria's family. Both days on returning we were treated to tea in the garden with the lightest Victoria sponge we have ever tasted. We had a delectable dinner cooked by Harold on the second... More

This was our second visit to the Victorian B&B and it was still just as amazing as the first time. We stayed in the King Room which was so ornate and luxurious. The roll top bath and stained glass windows in the shower, along with the most polite looking toilet I've ever seen were really special. This was our wedding... More

My wife and I wanted to find some-where to stay in Tunbridge Wells as we were going to a wedding in the area. The "Victorian Bed and Breakfast" has been lovingly restored and refurbished to what is probably now beyond its former glory. My jaw dropped in amazement as we were welcomed into the property by Harold who runs everything... More

We spent two nights in this amazing tribute to Queen Victoria and her family! The decor of this magnificently restored mansion is tasteful, original, elegant, and very comfortable. Breakfast is wonderfully cooked and presented in a beautiful dining room which is true to the period! Afternoon tea is enjoyable, and this activity adds so much to the atmosphere. The garden...

Spent one night here as a couple in early July-16. Beautiful B&B run by a delightful host. Lovely old world charm and service (and big bonus of no TV in rooms!). Centrally located, parking off street. Lovely old world rooms, a step back to simpler times. Nice breakfast with an interesting and engaged group of fellow guests. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently spent four nights in this B & B. We were delighted with everything! The room was a generous size, the bathroom was large with beautiful fixtures and the king size bed was so comfortable with crisp, clean linens. Tea served in the garden and breakfast in the luxurious dining room were top notch. The location... More

This property must have been a labour of love for the proprietor and it certainly shows. I could have spent a day just admiring the period details. It's everything you'd want from a B & B ; welcoming, relaxed, clean and a convenient location for the centre of town. All with the added bonus of being an interesting place to... More

A step back in time, rooms beautifully decorated, greeted with afternoon tea with cake, a very relaxing feel to the house, if you enjoy history this is the B & B for you! A wonderful capture of history

Run by former butler Harold Brown, this B&B is beautifully appointed. Attention to detail is extraordinary. Fine linens, feather pillows and duvets, American style plumbing (up-to-the minute and brand new, unlike many British B&Bs). The house itself is an experience -almost a re-enactment of Victorian gracious living. Harold's collection is museum standard. Breakfast is included but dinner can be ordered.... More

Built in 1861, the house in leafy Tunbridge Wells has never been as Victorian as it is now. Deep colours, rich velvets, marble tables, authentic wallpapers, tasseled lamps, portraits of Queen Victoria, tea and Victoria sponge by the fire. Be prepared to take a serious step back in time. ... more   less
