A very enjoyable stay in Tunbridge Wells, the hotel was very nice, staff very friendly and the food in the restaurant was fantastic, our room was clean a bit on the small side, our only complaint was the mattress on the bed, this was passed it's best.

We returned to stay after a few years as the location is close to friends. The rooms were ok - beds not that comfortable, noisy (to be expected near a busy road) and the wifi was very frustrating but we are told it is due to be upgraded soon. We've always loved the restaurant and had great service by Ellie...

It was clean and modern couple of niggles with the maintenance but a good sized reasonably priced room, it wasn't noisy and was next to the main road. The T.V could...

We had a nice room, good service and good food with plenty of choice, and reasonable prices. The location was convenient. We went there to visit the local National trust properties, Sissinghurst Castle, Knole, Ightam Mote, and Hever Castle

The service from the staff was excellent. The room was a nice size. The ensuite smelt of urine and had some marks up the wall that looked as if something had been spilt but not cleaned up. The window did not shut properly and the secondary double glazing was not enough to keep the noise out. Breakfast was continental and...

Stayed overnight as a couple, inexpensive double room at front of building overlooking green. Comfortable and clean room, small but with high ceiling and nice tv, very hot on arrival soon sorted by turning radiator off! Good clean shower/wc ensuite.

Had a lovely lunch with my husband. The food was presented nicely but even though we were the only 2 people in the restaurant area it took longer than would normally wait for food. One of the waitresses was incredibly short when I asked about having my remaining food to takeaway but the other staff were friendly and happy to...

We stopped off here for a light lunch which was pretty disappointing given the cost so probably wouldn't return. To be fair the member of bar staff who took our order was warm and friendly but she must have finished her shift as we didn't see her again and the bar appeared unmanned afterwards. The sticky platter we ordered was...
