On arrival the hotel looked inviting, clearly sign posted and plenty of free parking space. Well sign posted to follow current restrictions, we were soon at the reception where we were greeted by very helpful and friendly staff. Our room was clean and decadent, a huge comfy bed and a lovely bathroom. We had use of the spa facilities in a booked time slot on arrival and the following morning, a wonderful jacuzzi and hydro pool and a swimming pool. We also used the sauna, there was also a steam room. The evening meal was tasty and well cooked and there was plenty to eat for breakfast, a continental and cooked. We really enjoyed our stay here, I hope to return again in the not too distant future!

Lovely hotel
Lovely family run hotel. The spa is absolutely amazing - gorgeous pool, fabulous steam room and great jacuzzi too. Worked well limited the numbers due to Covid with booked slots. Comfortable room and very pleasant bathroom. The food and wine in the Lakes restaurant was first class - our only slight criticism was that it seemed odd to have a second more casual restaurant, the Brasserie, serving the same dinner menu, when we were expecting perhaps some less formal menu options there as an alternative on our second night. Overall this is a great place to stay- we enjoyed exploring Faversham and Canterbury nearby - and it’s a lovely spot for a weekend break.

Liked: Cleanliness
The building and the grounds were beautiful, the room was well equipped but a bit tired. The staff were very friendly, however we were let down by the food (we had afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast) which was mediocre and the service while eating was extremely slow.
