Spent 3 nights here with my elderly mum. We had separate rooms booked, and mum was allocated a ground floor room with a walk in shower and I had a room with a bath as requested.
We had a lovely welcome when we checked in, and were shown to our respective rooms that were close to each other. King size beds, well appointed and spotless. We had booked on a dinner, B&B basis, and the food was superb. A great dinner menu, I had the pork belly on the first night, and it was probably one of the best I'd had, not too fatty, and plenty of meat, all with fresh veg. I opted for the liver and bacon the next night, and was not disappointed. Very generous portions, and piping hot. Breakfast had the usual choices, plenty of cereals and fresh fruits, and a very good choice of a cooked breakfast to follow. All the staff were chatty, smiling, and so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.Sorry, I don't know all the names of the staff, but we thank you all for making us so welcome. I had a couple of maintenance issues with my room in as much as a side table lamp didn't work, and the taps on he bath kept dripping, but both these faults were rectified asap, and there is even a maintenance sheet in the room to fill out if you do discover a problem. There is a lovely bar area and lounge as well as the large dining area. We expressed interest in holding a future function at the hotel, and were shown around by the lovely Chris, who also cooks a mean breakfast by the way! He really looked after us, showing us the facilities, and Jason the owner went through our options and we were so impressed that we booked up there and then for a future family event. The hotel is ideally situated for visiting the Kent countryside, or coast, there is ample parking and the hotel is in stunning grounds. Jason and his team are working hard on further refurbishments to constantly improve the hotel decor but whatever work is going on did not interfere with the day to day running of the hotel and as guests we were not aware of any disruptions and were not inconvenienced in any way.
We had a fantastic stay, and plan to return in the spring we enjoyed it so much. I had the last laugh though, mum bought 6 sausages and 6 free range eggs from the hotel when we left, only when I dropped her home, I forgot they were in the boot, so now I've got them! Thank you everyone, you made our stay so memorable, looking forward to seeing you all again soon. less
