    For our needs excellent choice - touring the area good access to local attractions of Kent. Close to Maidstone which has good choice of resturants if you do not wish to eat in the hotel. Our 2 night family visit to the area was for a Football Match at Gillingham, then to visit Dover Castle, Leeds Castle and Rochester. Ideal for that purpose. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    Nothing we did not like regarding Hotel.

    morning alarm call was forgotten,would like to see a small drink's bar and have enough tea/coffee/milk for the evenings' in

    Good Breakfast. Pleasant, helpful staff. Large bedroom.

    We partly booked this hotel because we thought it had an in-house gym. In fact, the gym facilities are in the middle of town.

  • Older travelers

    The price of the food, and the noise form other persons late at night and the early hours, with doors banging and people talking (started at about 0425hrs and lasted until 0540hrs).

    Hotel staff were pleasant enough. Night porter at the door so you can return anytime you want. Great value for money and only just over a mile Into maidstone town.

    Like other people say the walls in this hotel are paper thin,heard most of what next door was doing VIA thumps,bumps and laughing. no lifts in the hotel.

    Fantastic meal in restaurant, Desserts a bit slow, but they rectified it by not charging and waitress was lovely

    Bed(Mattress a little uncomfortable) and could do with being replaced. other than that ok

    The staff were pleasant and helpful. The restaurant food was good. The beds comfortable.

    The hotel looks and feels rather tired and old fashioned. There are no lifts so carrying up the luggage was hard work. Our room and bathroom were also in need of a face lift. There was evidence of mould in the bathroom, otherwise the rooms were clean.

  • Older travelers

    I was impressed with the speed that a complaint was delt with,and put right without any fuss.

    nice layout room reasonable and comfortable

    tricky location but got to grips with it in the end

  • Older travelers
    3.8

    The bar meal was ok.

    The plumbing was not working properly in the bathroom - shower barely a dribble and toilet cistern took half an hour to fill. When I reported it to the staff they just said thank you for telling us and did not even apologise or offer a reduction. The walls between rooms are thin and the couple in the next room were having a nasty argument at 2am which woke me up.

    It was a beautiful hotel the staff very polite and we really enjoyed our stay
