“The best all round..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2008

Stayed for one night and found everything excellent. Quiet room ensured a good-night's sleep. Booked for dinner, the pub was very busy, but the staff were extemely effecient, helpful and friendly. Our full English breakfast the next morning was one of the best we have had at any hotel. A very convenient stopover about 5 minutes off J7 of the M20 for those making for channel crossings.

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Black Horse Inn, Maidstone, Kent. The food, location, staff and accommodation were all excellent, we had no complaints at all and will return at a later date. If you are looking for a peaceful country location just a few minutes from the M20 then this is it, it is also a few minutes drive from Maidstone and Leeds Castle. 10 out of 10, the full breakfast is amazing and keeps you going all day. If you stay on a Monday or Tuesday night the 3 course menu for £12.95 is excellent but I advise you to book which ever night you stay because the restaurant is always full.

Stayed March 2008
