Overnight business stay

Posted 06-Aug-2014
Hotel is OK for the night. A conference venue situated in an old stately home. No A/C so the rooms got very hot so slept with the windows open which didn't really make much of a difference. Bed was lumpy and rather uncomfortable. Bathroom shower filled up with water in the tray so didn't like that too much. Only had breakfast, sparse buffet and hot food was OK nothing special. Disappointed that poached eggs arrived hard.

Nice hotel if in business in Maidstone

Posted 05-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: It would be nice if there was a fridge in the room, but may be I ask too much. A bit variation in the restaurant menu
Nice hotel, good value for money, near Maidstone city centre, nice rooms, with free wi fi, free breakfast and free parking Try to book the rooms that have been renovated.

Pros: Room was clean and well presented, staff were friendly and helpful
Cons: The food needs to improve, it was often over cooked and the scrambled egg at breakfast was awful
Food was poorly cooked and there was too much noise from the events

Not a Hotel

Posted 23-Jun-2014
Pros: Room was comfortable but the only power points were behind an immovable desk and required high levels of contortion to free up plug from lamp
Cons: Menu, layout ( access bedrooms via conference rooms), better connectivity & more power points
Location: Near to town
This is a conference centre, not a hotel, very limited choice of food, no healthy options. Poor Wi-FI & phone signal

Adequate hotel

Adequate. Strange atmosphere because there were offices upstairs. More a conference centre than somewhere for a romantic getaway. Room was clean. Fried breakfast was stodgy, continental choice appeared better. Price was very reasonable.

More a Wedding/Conference Hotel

Posted 24-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful but wasnt overly impressed with our evening meal. Room was nice and clean with good clean bathroom, but just shower no bath. Generally feeling walking too and from our room, hotel was more of a conference centre as no real facilities for guests to enjoy. Breakfast was good, plentiful and nice choice. Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our brief stay, but probably would not stay again.

A fine house on beautiful woodlands and grounds

Posted 17-Apr-2014
Pros: Location, service and food.
Cons: Toilet was in severe need of a good dose of bleach. There was no fresh fruit in the restaurant and this was, I believe, a first in my experience.
Location: Don't know. I had a tight schedule and did not explore the area.
We recently spent 2 days in this wonderful location. The original building is beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant and bedrooms appear to have been added in an ad hoc fashion. To access the bedrooms one has to go through the bar and restaurant. A wrong turn at the top of the stairs & you walk into what looks like an IT/Office training centre. The bedroom was basic but adequate. We were far too hot in bed even though w3e turned the heat off. The duvet was too warm & there was no lighter alternative available. We opened the window but the external noise made it impossible to sleep.
