Additionally, your accommodation may have great historic resonance itself, with many of Kent's hotels housed in castles, old manor houses and half-timbered buildings from the 17th Century or earlier. Whether your Kent historic hotel is in a city centre mansion or a medieval farmhouse in the countryside, this will add a certain frisson to your stay. Cities like Dover and Canterbury are so ancient that historic hotels are often the norm and you may well find yourself staying in one without especially intending to!
