The room and general facilities were very good but the food was hit and miss. We ate at the Pavilion restaurant and to be honest the food and service was nothing special. The buffet breakfast was disappointing whereas the cooked breakfast was superb and one of the best I've had. Overall the room was clean and well provided for but there were stains on the carpet and one of the taps was broken. So overall good housekeeping but in need of some updating.

We spent two nights at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was beautifully prepared and presented. If we return to Kent for another break we will definitely stay here.
Forgot to mention the pool - loved it!

"Lovely hotel close to wedding venue (The Orangery)"
We only had one night at this hotel which was a shame as it was a lovely place and plenty of facilities. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very quiet. Staff at reception were friendly and efficient. We would highly recommend it to others for a stay in the area and for them to spend a couple of nights!
We have stayed in this hotel about 10 times and it never disappoints. Excellent value for money bearing in mind that it's only 2 miles from the town. Price included full English breakfast plus full use of the gym,pool etc. There's a really nice river side walk to maidstone which takes about 30-40 minutes.
This was my first visit to Kent and I came on a business trip. My hotel requirements are: a clean and comfortable room, a bar and restaurant, and a fitness room. The room was small, but otherwise fine. The bar had a choice of three draft beers and virtually anything else you could want. There's a pub within walking distance (The Crown and Rose -or vice versa). If I return, I'll check it out. The restaurant was exceptional. I ate there four nights and wasn't disappointed. The "catch of the day" featured local fresh fish (Halibut and sea bass when I was there). The breakfast buffet was also good. Tips were included if you charge to your room. I wish they had told me. The fitness room is a converted squash court. The equipment was worn and dated. It lacked cardio equipment. A treadmill or recumbent bike would have boon nice. I went for morning walks. The sidewalks are rather narrow, but it's in an interesting village.
