The Marquis at Alkham

Traveller (215)
Room & Suite (75)
Dining (12)


Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived.

I have stayed here a few times previously and when we arrived there was a sign saying they had a new management team and by God did we know it. They were very unhelpful and didn't care that our stay was ruined by everything in our room falling apart, we paid extra for a deluxe

We stayed one night at this lovely hotel in order to go to a nearby wedding at the old Kent barn. Staff were so helpful and friendly and helped us book a cab for the wedding. The room was clean and lovely and bathroom had an amazing stand alone bath! I had breakfast by myself

Canterbury is a short drive away as is an excellent outlet centre at Ashford. Slightly further away but worth the drive is Bluewater.

"Ask for a room with air conditioning if it's warm"
"Rooms facing the main road can be a bit noisy but it has double glazing which cuts the noise down a lot. No real issue."
"Did not stay over, only ate lunch."
"Make a request at the time of booking not when you arrive"
"All rooms would be quiet."
