Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I stayed to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary after marrying at the cave last year and found the entire stay to be absolutely perfect. To begin with, our standard room was upgraded to a suite which was beautiful and the hand-written note from Megan and the team was a lovely touch, we even had a view of the marque from our balcony to remind us of our reception a year ago. The firepit tasting menu was incredible (especially the pork and voodoo shrimp!) and the ambience like no other restaurant in Kent and the cowgirl breakfast was delicious like always. We even managed a trip to the spa this time around and loved the decor and being able to order drinks! Overall, our stay was incredible and we cannot wait to revisit. We have both said visiting the cave is equivalent to a weekend away as there is so much to do and you really feel you’ve been transported to a luxurious escape. Thank you so much to Megan and the entire team for making our stay so amazing. We really would recommend the Cave to anybody, they really know how to make you feel special.

This hotel is stunning, the rooms are immaculate…. but the bed in our room was way too soft. As a result me and my wife had a terrible nights sleep. Despite this, the hotel is beautiful and the staff couldn’t do enough for us; hence not a completely negative review.

Dear Nick G Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback regarding your visit. I am sorry to hear that you find the bed too soft, our mattresses are from a UK company Harrison & Spinks that was recognised by The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, Britain’s most prestigious business accolade. I am so pleased to read that you enjoyed the hotel décor and how friendly the staff was, the team will be very proud to know their hard work and efforts have not gone unnoticed.

As soon as you drive down the long driveway you know that this is such a special place already. We arrived around 3ish (your rooms aren’t guaranteed until 3 but they’ll do all they can to accommodate especially if you let them know in advance, and you can arrive earlier and grab drinks food play golf or chill in their pool area) We quickly grabbed a drink to chill after a day full of driving and working, and then we checked in. Staff on check in were so very friendly and helpful. Welcome drink was so kind too and a great touch. We went up to our room and it was beautiful. We stayed in a signature suite, it was specious, very clean and lovely decor and mood lighting. Had a lovely fireplace in the middle of the room and a couple of very large smart tvs which connect to Apple TV for music etc. Mini fridge is very well stocked. I can only describe the bed as sleeping on a cloud. It was so comfy and I need to find out how I can get my hands on the pillows as they were unreal. Sheets were the softest we’ve ever felt. If you want to sleep well, book here. We were booked in for dinner at 7.30 at fire pit (which is the most amazing restaurant, I have done a separate review on this) after eating we was going to go back to the Korean cowgirl for a drink at the bar (where we went earlier and it was beautiful) but we decided to go for a swim instead for something a bit different. The pool areas open until around midnight, it was empty when we went at night. Had a steam room and sauna and very large jacuzzi, it was really relaxing. You can order drinks around there on iPads but we didn’t really feel the need to. Was such a lovely night, and then the next morning we had a lovely breakfast. Was insane. You can arrange breakfast in bed easily however we decided to go down to the restaurant. I’ve been full up all day after that, it was lovely. The only downside is that the time went too quickly!! But we’ve made memories to last a lifetime.

The bedding & bed at the cave is something I have never experienced before, I’ve stayed in hotels in Mayfair and nothing compares to the cave. The food, service and ambience is just exquisite. Alex especially was extremely attentive, nothing was too much. The arrival drink was a lovely added touch, We will definitely be returning.

Extremely upset and feel so disappointed , walked in and got upgraded ! Very greatful for that , got to the beautiful spa ! Hot tub very Lukewarm so got back to the room to Warm up no hot water this is around 6pm call down and got told no hot water waiting on a plumber that’s fine later try having a shower again and still no hot water so called again told to Wait again so I did had a dinner reservation for 9pm so held out longer went and spoke to reception and the lovely receptionist told me it wouldn’t be longer so I told her I was considering leaving as I needed to wash (for the main reason I am a woman and I unfortunately have my time of the month and felt very unclean and wanted to shower so I could feel nice to go out to dinner , she asked us to stay go for dinner and would be on when we got back ! Guess what no hot water still ! On a side note there was a power cut that got fixed straight away ! This morning Ive lived in hope that there would be some kind of hot water but no once again I feel rotten ! So we have checked out and asked if there was any chance of any compensation as were two 20 year olds that have saved very hard to spend the night as it’s our anniversary! I feel that my age has gone against me so I’ve been offered £70 off my food bill last night and that’s it ! I did not take this as There was no complaints about the food at all it was amazing the hotel’s amazing but sandra the receptionist really made me feel like a child ! I’ve asked to speak to the manager and I’ve gotten no where ! I am really hoping the manger sees this and is kind enough to contact me personally Thankyou

Dear Beckinsale Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback regarding your visit. Whilst it is never easy to receive negative feedback, it is always appreciated as it ensures the issues you encountered are never repeated. Unfortunately we had issues with one of our boilers originated by several power cuts due to the storm "Isha" that brought loads of destruction to the whole ok UK. Our maintenance team have done all in their power to resolve the issues as soon as possible, and the reception manager Sandra dealt with the situation and removed 35% of your bill. Please do not hesitate to contact myself directly on sergio.gomes@cavehotels.com should there be any more you wish to discuss directly and I would certainly be thrilled to look forward in our conversation in order that a satisfactory resolution can be reached. Warm wishes Sergio Gomes

By far the most luxurious , stunning hotel I’ve ever stayed in , not just the decor but the atmosphere and the overall vibe of the hotel is so comfortable and welcoming All staff members that we met went above and beyond with their customer service and are a true asset to their team. Ruyman In the firepit especially stood out to us as he was so bubbly and friendly and gave us a good laugh. Sergio is always so welcoming and always looks the part too . The food itself is insane and enough reason to come back. The whole show that was put on for for New Years worked brilliantly and was for sure, a night to remember with good company. Will never not get bored of staying at the cave.
