Booked 1 night. Arrived around 6pm check on was quick. We had room 12 which led down some back stairs into the pub garden and some walks for dog. Very handy for taking the dog out. Had dinner which was lovely. Our dog wAs welcomed into the restaurant (my dog actually sat on a chair as she is small - i was a bit concerned this would not be allowed but the waitress said it was fine). Room 12 overlooks the front road but not a problem as quiet area. There is a door which links to the next room this was locked. We could hear next door chatting and other people banging around upstairs but this stopped around 11 and did not stop us from sleeping. Tv wAs fine with lots of channels. Shower but a decent power, wAs a little worn around seals but for £75 a night I would not complain. Toiletries included. Breakfast was nice and plentiful and again our dog was welcomed. Lovely waitress. If in the area would stay again. Visited broadstairs around 40 mins away and whitstable around 15 mns away. Most beaches don't allow dogs on 10-6 check on website.

Nice old coaching inn with a very genial staff and good food. Our fish was fresh and perfectly cooked and served with a smile. Well worth a visit if you're in this neck of the woods.
The interior of the pub is characterful, obviously with tons of history and actually is a very good place to stay, as it's a stone's throw from Faversham. L

Our booking agent cancelled our hotel at the last minute meaning we had to find accommodation at short notice. The only convenient hotel was this Inn, close to to our venue. As a short term overnight stop all I can say is it was a room. As it goes it would not have passed a detailed scrutiny. Barely basic, but a bed, nonetheless.

Why do todays hotels use bad lighting now . It was impossible to read a magazine in room no,2 and as for the shower plus wet floor we gave up after 2 nights it was a disgrace again with bad lighting, Food and service was good and the fact I had to go to hospital during the evening with toothache when I returned having missed dinner we were given a plate of fresh sandwiches, Unable to open windows in this hot weather. Pity really this hotel has so much character bit the bad lighting really lets it down.

We stayed in a twin room for one night. It was, frankly, awful. The room itself was long and thin, necessitating the beds being placed at opposite ends. The other furniture is best described as functional - a table, dining room chair, wardrobe and two bedside tables - and a very basic, cheap, television.

The mattresses were cheap and the bed frames both creaked loudly, such that turning over in bed invariably woke the other occupant. The room was at the front of the building and brightly lit all night by virtue of the fact that the curtains, when closed, had large gaps at the top and sides. In the early hours of the morning, sleep being impossible, we used towels, the bedspread and pillows to try and block out the light.

The bathroom was clean enough, but the shower consisted of plastic curtains over the bath and a handheld shower attachment. How much effort and cost would it take to fit a shower holder to the wall to enable people to have a decent shower?

The walls were thin and we could clearly hear people in the next room. Traffic noise was loud.

Despite the fire exit door being left open all night, the corridor area outside the room smelled like a cat's litter tray badly in need of changing.

Breakfast was acceptable (and our server was pleasant) apart from the fact the bacon had been pre-cooked and had the consistency of leather.

If we had seen this room before booking, we would had gone elsewhere. It appears other people have raised concerns about the standard of accommodation in some rooms, especially the handheld shower, but nothing has been done to address these problems - despite responses from the management stating issues have been "majorly" addressed.

Some people have clearly enjoyed their stay at this establishment, but we do begrudge the £90.90 we were charged for this awful experience.

Room tip: Make sure you view and are happy with the room before booking.
