“Very very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

Super location with beautiful garden. Back to nature. Rooms very clean and fresh - a little small. Bed comfy. Very large bathroom -- though lacks a shower. Good to have a bath though instead.
Great breakfast. Very welcome cup of tea on arrival -- well appreciated.

WiFi very good inside building.

Super value for money. I tend to stay in good hotels so comparison is hard. I guess I missed my shower and I never think about if there would be a shower these days!

Room Tip: Check to see if the other rooms have showers. Mine was the double twin.

Thank you for your kind words, we like to take any critisism constructively and in view of your opinions on the shower situation we have now added a proper shower to this room , all are rooms now have either a shower or both a shower and a bath and are en-suite

This B&B is clean, has a very good hospitality and gave us the feeling of being home.
It looks lovely inside and outside and has a nice garden. Camera protection around and in the house so it feels very safe.
The tippical English breakfast is good. they even had ham and cheese at breakfast! So if you don't want a cooked breakfast, they have a lot of choice. We will visit this B&B again. I am sure!
We booked 3 rooms so we have seen half of the B&B.

A very lovely and quiet place!
Rooms very clean and comfortable. The B&B is well situated near main roads and motorways but at the same time in the middle of the countryside!
Really nice and welcoming people.
I really recommend this place!

I often stay at the Detling Coach House when I`m working in the area. Really friendly family. I`m always made to feel welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and I always feel well rested after a good night`s sleep. The breakfast is brilliant !!!! I look forward to it every time I stay there.

Have just returned from walking the Kent part of the North Downs & stayed 2 nights in Detling. The family was most accommodating & helpful, nothing was too much trouble & we were served the best cooked breakfast on our tour. We can really recommend this overnight stop.

Rooms excellent, Great Breakfast and ideal location for Maidstone. Peaceful grounds. As a business customer (contracting in Maidstone) I have stayed at Detling for about 8 weeks (mon to fri) and this shows how much I like the place.
