“Will be going back soon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stayed one night in March, wished it was for longer, the room was very clean and comfortable, the food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly especially Nicky who was lovely and could not do enough for us, we will definitely be returning.

Just spent a night at the Smith & Western and what a great little place! Location isn't terribly exciting on arrival but when you get orientated, it is actually very near the Pantiles and local parks. Loved the room which was very comfortable and the bathroom worked brilliantly too. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful and youthful which was very endearing. We're a couple of 40 somethings and really enjoyed the funny themed hotel which wasn't necessarily what we look for normally but it was perfect for our night stay and for our friends to bring over their kids to eat. Would definitely recommend as reasonable value for money. Big pluses were staff friendliness, nice room and good brekkie (accompanied by Dolly Parton which we liked!) Thanks a lot.

Room Tip: We stayed in Apache overlooking Sainsbury's car park which was quiet.

Only an overnight stopover but great fun. Our room was spotless and really bright. We stayed in a room called Sioux next time it could be Cheyanne! Staff most welcoming and attentive.Decided to eat out for dinner, probably a mistake because on our return there was a queue for tables.know better next time, yes we will return.Baz N12

Just arrived back from our fourth stay at The Smith & Western, Tunbridge Wells and everything was perfect. If you love all things American like we do you will love this place. The whole hotel is themed around the wild west and country music is played non stop. The bedrooms are all named after Native American tribes and are spotlessly clean and super comfortable. The on-site restaurant is fantastic too and our food was cooked to perfection. In the restaurant there are 'bus boys' who tidy tables and we watched amazed as one dropped a plate on the floor with some uneaten food on it.....within seconds another bus boy had arrived and picked up the plate....seconds later another bus boy arrived with a dustpan and brush and swept up the food....seconds later another bus boy arrived with some spray and a cloth and thoroughly cleaned the area where the food was spilt, Within half a minute of the plate being dropped you would never have known it had happened unless you were there to watch it. Fabulous work by some very under-rated staff. Of course the waiters and bar staff are equally adept at their jobs and make your stay a real joy. Go along and give it a try you'll have some Rootin' Tootin' Fun.....

Room Tip: The buckets of 8 beers give you quite a saving over 8 individual bottles.

A themed Western restaurant with rooms. A very clean and comfortable bedroom with super shower. Typical American food dinner menu, and an unusual breakfast choice, all freshly cooked. A novel hotel that may be a fun break with children.

Amazing hotel, super clean, super great service and food. Extremely good value and included breakfast is excellent, cooked fresh fresh and very nice. Only slight issue pillows in bedrooms a little firm for our liking, but room great and bathroom great. Stayed in town to eat at Thachery's...when in town again will book here again. Just such great value and service.

Stayed for two nights.Check in is at the bar in the restaurant that has a great western decor.All the staff we dealt with during our stay were very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. There are 9 hotel rooms all with Indian tribe names. The room and ensuite were spotless, the bed very comfortable and the room well provisioned. Only observation was for all the classy looks of the coffee maker the coffee and hot chocolate drinks were not the best we have had.
Would highly recommend this hotel which is very well positioned for a stroll through The Pantiles and into Tunbridge Wells center.
Ate in the restaurant one night and again staff were great and the food much as you would expect from an american themed diner. The breakfasts were fine and plentiful and having steak and eggs for breakfast was right up my street.
