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.

A Country Retreat

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest. Thank you for review, I am overall pleased that your stay was good, but upset that on your arrival you were not dealt with as smoothly as the rest of our guests. We are fully aware, particularly on reception, about GDPR, and I am really quite sure that the receptionist did not read out over 40 names to you. Sometimes guests are booked under other names and with wrong spellings and in some cases spoken differently to how they are written, its very difficult for the receptionist to deal with on occassions. The cottages we have only just taken over as part of the hotel on 4th June and due to this they are not on our usual booking system programme and this will not occur until beginning of July. This may have been the issue and I can only apologise for this. There are a couple of issues that are arising from the cottages, which are being looked at, but we are not aware of these issues at reception that you mentioned, so will investigate these now. I am pleased that you did enjoy your stay and that the weather was much better in the following few days. Thanks again for your comments


10/06/2019 Resort50081792383,

The hotel room that I was allocated (although booking well in advance) was not fit for purpose. It was damp, smelly, in a terrible state of repair eg paint and plaster peeling from walls, dirty, cobwe... more

Dear Guest Well you really have it in for us dont you. Second review on 2 separate sites. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, but that room IS completely fit for purpose as it has been in use for many weeks before your stay and it was used by other guests the night we moved you to the other room with NO ISSUES. It may have taken you 4 attempts to get moved on the 2nd night, (Not that I think that is correct at all) but you asked on your first night and were told we could not move you as we were fully booked - there were NO ROOMS AVAILABLE ON ANY WEBSITES - AND WE DO NOT USE TRIP ADVISOR AS A BOOKING COMPANY. However we could on the second night - which we did, and low and behold you did not review the other room you had. It was brought to my attention by the housekeeper how rude your were, which I had dealt with previously at reception, but my staff do not have to take that from anyone. I wish now when you said you were leaving that I had not bothered to find you an alternative room, I should have just let you go and although you probably would still have written a bad review, at least we would have had a pleasant guest on the second evening. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, but my reviews from the weekend have been all positive and yours seems to be the only negative. Odd that ??? Anyone if your coming back to the area, I hope you find other accommodation for yourself, as you would not be welcome back here.
