Certificate of Excellence
The Blazing Donkey is a 22 bedroom country hotel located near to Sandwich in Kent. The hotel boasts its own acclaimed restaurant, and has a cosy bar with inglenook and stunning garden with terrace for guests to enjoy. The hotel is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Richard and Sherry Martin. The accommodation at the hotel is arranged in a courtyard and each of the well appointed en suite rooms enjoys rural views. The rooms have flat screen TVs and baths with showers. Parking for guests is free. The hotel enjoys a very mixed patronage, from leisure break visitors, business travellers, golfers and wedding guests. The hotel is one of Kent's most popular special occasion venues, and with good reason as the facilities are as extensive as the surroundings are beautiful. The hotel's restaurant produces a regularly changing menu inspired mainly from locally sourced produce. Lunch and dinner are served daily. Visitors can also enjoy morning coffees and afternoon cream teas.
