Very nice restaurant
Nice location, in the middle of rural Kent though still 20-25 minutes from Maidstone
Cons: Not really geared for business travellers.
Breakfast is after 0930! You are offered continental breakfast in your room if you have to leave before 0930.
Not easy to find, especially late at night, when my mobile sat nav stopped working as there was no reception and there was no single soul awake to ask for instructions.
I suggested to the owner to alert future customers at time of confirmation of booking, with emphatic fonts e.g. capitals or bold that this may be the case, so to make alternative preparations e.g. print the map or download off line map.
Do not take me wrong, overall it is a nice B&B with some very fancy rooms. Very nice for a romantic weekend/getaway!
