The scene was set during checkin. I had to pay in advance but couldn't be given by receipt until the morning - I never did get to the bottom of this. I was given a newly refurbished room in the Coach Inn which I was assured was very nice. Unfortunately it was the hottest day of the year and the... More

We stayed in a newly refurbished room at £150 per night but the room was small, lacked any sound proofing so you heard any noise made by other guests, the coffee machine was over complicated to use and the hotel only supplied one drink and had no replacements. The bathroom although well fitted lacked face cloths, a soap dish, the... More

Approached the hotel and from outside it looks lovely, old coaching inn with lovely old windows and architecture. Inside at the reception and bar area was also nice, and I believe this part has recently been refurbished as part of the whole refurb plan. I was put in the coach inn a building behind the main hotel which is separated... More

Conveniently located with good secure car park. Warm welcome from enthusiastic receptionist, then came the walk to my room - really tatty carpets, scraped walls it did not look good. My room however was modern and clean with all you needed for a nights stay. Returning later I visited the bar and again found excellent staff. All in all this... More

The location in the Old part of Sevenoaks High Street is excellent with good parking available. We Booked for afternoon Tea and was totally surprised not only by the ample quantity of beautifully prepared sandwiches of Ham & Mustard, Smoked salmon, Coronation Chicken plus egg and cheese but also excellent home made pastries and scones with the obligatory cream and...

Would stay the staff were very friendly though a tad stretched at breakfast! Location good but value for money poor if you do happen to... More

Lovely hotel we stayed in the newly refurbished rooms in the coach house and they are great, nicely decorated with coffee machine, flat screen and good interior design. We heard some rooms are badly dated so ensured we paid a bit more to stay in a nice room! Really nice fry up too! Would definitely recommend this hotel beautiful!

Spent a couple of nights here when working in the area. I normally go for the Premier Inn option as I know what I'm going to get, but glad I took a punt on this lovely little place. Just yards from Knole it's a pretty and historic building that serves decent food and really excellent breakfasts. The staff are charming... More

I stayed in a single room for 2 nights midweek. The room overlooked the road and I thought that I may be bothered by traffic noise. However the noise from the room above me was much greater. It should be emphasized that was not the fault of the occupants. It was due to the total absence of sound insulation and... More

This hotel has gone from good to bad to worse than bad, but finally the new owners are putting heart and soul back into one of Sevenoaks's oldest buildings. We often drink in the bar and the other night decided to try the restaurant, one part of the hotel that until recently has been sadly forgotten. The new Chef, Sam,... More
