Most importantly the duty manager was an absolute star! She made really all effort to make us welcome and was very efficient indeed! A service with a smile and personal touch that you can not find very often anymore. The room was excellent apart from our little problem in the night everything was brilliant. Plumbing! The radiator in the bathroom was banging all night which limited our sleep to a couple of hours max and unfortunately marked an otherwise superb stay down.
I enjoyed the spacious room and large bathroom. It was very romantic and warm.
The room was a very good size and so were the on suite facilities.friendliness of all staff was good The bedroom carpet needed to be cleaned or changed
The decor; comfortable bed A smell of smoke permeating from the bar beneath the room.
Room was very nice good size & very friendly staff I think it was a bit over priced £90.00 seems a bit expencive for a pub. Breakfast the fresh cooked was good but continental a tad tight hardlt anything.
Breakfast - Room was of a reasonable size Reception - appeared 'phased' by situation including dog which property's web-site said were welcomed at no extra charge and this was found not to be the case! Room, although reasonably contemporary was beginning to suffer from the usual British disease of lack of maintenance and care!
A very good location in the park area. the food was excellent and the staff where very helpful. No would use this hotel again.
Property in very good condition & clean Book a double room online, on arrival find that there was only a twin available
Within walking distance to the venue where our function was. We were told that the room was one of their luxury rooms, not sure where that idea came frrom. Carpets up the stairs and in the room were very dirty, room size ok, old sash window that was permanately open, mind you it was so very hot and stuffy in the room all night that we would not have wanted in closed. Room passable certainly not luxury!
Friendly helpfull staff. Good food. Parking could be a problem.
location and parking I have now stayed in four English Inns and they vary in service.I had to take my luggage up two flights of stairs no assistance was offered.The remote did not work.No heating in the morning so it was very cold.This hotel is o.k. if you get a cheap deal but not full price.
Attractive rooms, nice friendly staff, good food and beautiful surrounding countryside. The bed mattress was a little uncomfortable
Friendly atmosphere Bar shuts at 11pm on Sat! Also no high chairs for children
Well located the village was very interesting, lots of interesting if very expensive shops.Very good dinner in hotel
Good central location in the town. Very good on-site parking. We felt very safe. Good bit of general wear and tear; peeling wallpaper, broken and detached bathroom tiles, rotting window sills. Price may have been fair for the location but certainly more than I would expect to pay for the general condition of the place.
Young staff at breakfast service were delightful The Hotel was a disgrace and I was ashamed for England and I have sent a letter of complaint to your customer service - Old English Inns Head Office @Bury St Edmunds. This hotel is idealy situated in a beautiful Village in the Garden of Kent and would posibly have many visitors from Chartwell and Hever Castle and it was sad - paintwork shabby, ceiling paper falling down, carpets and curtains were grubby, furniture chipped and dusty etc etc. Also no security at all after 11pm - you have to go round the back door entrance, dimly lit and let yourself in, inside badly lit and no directions to main reception area or staircase. I found this so sad and would never stay there again - after living in Kent for over 20 years - I would never recommend it either to anbody and also I found the Saturday morning reception area rather off putting, as a dog was also there to greet me, office area was very scruffy and untidy - I could go on but have not enough time.
Our room was quite dark with no main light. A bulb had also gone in the ensuite which resulted in a dark bathroom. The decor could do with a freshen up as walls skirtings and window frames all showed signs of tiredness.
The friendly staff
One of the best breakfasts that I have had at a hotel or B&B Room decoration was a little 'tired'
The staff were nice and friendly & service for breakfast good. There was no one on reception and at one point had problem getting one of our group into room, but luckily one other persons key fit, so could have done with someone on reception to save headache.
