    Extremely good for everything - convenient for public transport, good location to feeling nature, excellent tastes of foods, very kind and nice staffs. I cannot find any fault except no elevator there to carry my heavy luggage.More

    Hello P. Brown, We are located in St Andrews, Scotland, just around the corner from the Old Course. I believe Maidstone is in the south of England, and it's far away from our hotel! Kind Regards, Carmen

    We have a deluxe room which can have 3 single beds and a pull out or a king, single and pullout depending on your needs. Remember it is also the best rate when you book direct with the hotel.
