“The worst B& B in Kent”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The landlord and landlady have no real interested in real customer service the room was not cleaned properly, the bedding was dirty and obviously had not been changed since the last occupant.
The Breakfast was very poor cheap booker concentrated orange juice,no sausages ( I had to buy my own!) toast was not toasted at all!
I did have a pack lunch one day and when I asked for an apple this was refused!
The beer was consistently off and the evening meal was a microwaved thing very inedible!
Please steer clear of this B & B FROM HELL!

The King George V is a great little pub and the accommodation is superb. We booked a room after seeing the pub's website and it just doesn't do the place justice. You never know what you are going to get when you stay at an independently run hotel/B&B/pub, but this was superb. Quirky place with loads of characters. Rooms very clean and furnished to a high standard - we had a four poster bed, which was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!

There's a little communial area before the stairs to the bedrooms, which again is well equipped with a TV, books, games etc. This was a real surprise and was great for us as we had friends also staying in another room so we could have a chat and a few drinks together before going out and again when we got in!

Breakfast the next day was a full English and they even had vegetarian sausages! Lovely, lovely people. Highly recommend this pub. Will stay again definitely.

Room Tip: Go for the four poster bed - it's well worth the £5 extra!

The King George V is a B&B with a lot going for it. The pub is great with a great choice of beers and the breakfasts are excellent, The location is quiet and has a pleasant park opposite and there are no problems parking. The rooms are full of character and furnished to a high standard.

Room Tip: Because of the age of the pub, the stairs to the bedrooms are steep and narrow and may prove difficu...

The KGV is a traditional pub in a 17th century building. The rooms are clean and functional, if somewhat somewhat low (~ 6') on the second (third for North Americans) floor. The ale and food in the pub are excellent, especially the breakfast. The shower room on the middle floor is wonderfully large and extremely well appointed. There is en-suite accommodation for several of the rooms, just not the one in which I stayed

A warning: As well as the low ceilings on the top floor, the stairs are extremely steep - not for those with even a mild mobility impairment.
