Later With Jools Holland is filmed at The Maidstone Studios on New Cut Road which is in a suburban area of Maidstone some distance from the town centre.

Using the TripAdvisor hotel map, geographically the Hilton is the nearest hotel though by looking at Google Maps Streetview you can see even from here this is probably not a route you'd want to walk. So I suppose it depends on whether you want to stay in the town centre or are happy with being in an out of town hotel such as the Hilton or the Marriott Tudor Park for convenience if driving to the studios.

Maidstone town centre has a lot of pubs, bars and clubs but does not have a classy reputation. As to where to hang with the celebs, probably the studios themselves!

I'd imagine, if they're friendly with him and there's rooms available, the slebs will stay at his house, Cooling Castle, nearby. Or, they'd be limo'd in and then stay in a London hotel, or just fly straight home again. You'll be in the audience anyway, so by definition, you'll already have been hanging out with them.

Rumour round these parts is that whatever slebs don't make it back to London, stay at the Tudor Park ( a Marriott hotel). I wouldn't count on any slebs staying, but it's a good comfortable hotel, although a 2-3 mile distance from the Maidstone Studio's . The Hilton is in walking distance, but locally regarded as a good buisness hotel rather than a luxury retreat .
