I stayed here on business and will definitely book again next time. Fantastic location, comfy beds. The owners couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast was great. The only problem I had was a moron Guest complaining about anything. Stuart

I booked on the basis of positive reviews, sadly my experience wasn't positive at all. On arrival at 8.10pm, hardly late. I was checked in by a lady who looked like I'd women her and wasn't happy about it. The noise from a shower pump above kept me awake and my own shower was a pathetic dribble (I was later...

Fantastic room with rustic decor, good sized TV, extremely nice bed. Wash facilities were top notch. Location is incredibly quiet yet close enough to Maidstone for it to be convenient. The hosts are lovely and very much let you do your own thing. Breakfast was good, with a wide range to choose from.

What a fabulous find, right on our doorstep too. Enjoyed our stay so much, we booked an extra night. Breakfast was tasty too :-) Recommend, recommend, recommend!! A summer visit looks like it could be interesting... Lots of rambling to be done. All amenities were available including WiFi. Hosts were lovely and very accommodating.
