A hidden gem surrounded by parkland in Kent.

Set in three acres of open parkland with a tree-lined drive, Sure Hotel by Best Western Judd's Folly is a scenic getaway in peaceful surroundings. You'll find us in Syndale Park, a country retreat on the outskirts of the Kent market town of Faversham. We're only a 15-minute drive from historic Canterbury and Whitstable Castle, and within easy reach of the Channel Tunnel.

Our tastefully-decorated boutique accommodation mixes modern flair with traditional fittings dating back to the original building of 1680. We have 26 individually-styled bedrooms, many of which enjoy beautiful views of the parkland and are located on the ground floor, with direct access to the car park. For an extra touch of luxury, we have deluxe rooms and suites. Each room is bright and airy, with Freeview TV, a hospitality tray and free WiFi.

So whether you're here on a leisure break or business trip, you'll appreciate our comfortable rooms and great food and drink.

For such a beautiful setting I was disappointed with the room. An un-mopped bathroom floor, a spider and its cobweb in the shower and an unclean basin just made it feel no one had stayed in there or c... more

Dear Guest I am pleased you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel and found the staff, food and cleanliness good. Although I understand your comment on the accessibility, (I am not sure why your manual wheelchair does not fit into the bathroom when it has been used as a manual wheelchair users for the past 8 years), which I have already written to you on a different review to clarify that the staff had not picked up your details ,meaning that the ramp and shower seat which we did have but they forgot to put in the room for which I apologised, I feel that you comments on being dated and run down are quite offensive. We are privately run hotel set in a mix of building from 1680s to 1980s we are not ultra modern as that would not fit in with the surrounding or building in the slightest. Everyone's taste is different and we will never be a new modern place, but we do offer all the modern facilities required nowadays We have noted your comments and will look into additional aids for disabilities.

Dear Guest - Thank you for your review, I am pleased you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel. I am sorry about your steak, this was picked up by the staff and chef and agree it was very tough, we have been in contact with the suppliers concerning this. With regards to toiletries in rooms, we have been putting the same size and amount of toiletries in the rooms for the past 9 years that we have owned the hotel, without any issue, however in the past 2 weeks, we have a couple of comments along the same lines, so we will endeavour to source a larger size. Many thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again in the future.
