We stayed here for a wedding near by at Cooling Castle. Firstly, it is ideally placed for attending a wedding here, the location is great. As for the B&B itself, I have never stayed at a more helpful place - they even went out to buy a non-slip shower mat for the shower as I had a bad knee and was a bit unsteady on my feet. The host went above and beyond for us, asking our preferences for the ample continental breakfast and giving us advice on places to go nearby.

Stayed with a friend for a wedding. Facilities clean, spacious and property beautifully presented. Excellent kitchen and conservatory (shared) and excellent service. Lovely area to walk and visit. Continental breakfast (serve yourself in the kitchen) had everything I needed - except Marmite (lol)? Would stay again if in the area.

I and a friend recently attended a Wedding Reception at nearby Cooling Castle Barn and needed a twin room for one night. Orchard Cottage is first class for cleanliness, comfort and they think of everything you may need. And extremely pleasant people to make one's stay even better.

Stayed here the first two weeks in December on a business trip. Firstly the accommodation is outstanding, very spacious rooms and comfortable! The highlight of the property is the showers, better than most hotels! There is plenty of parking too. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating, and had a lot of nice chat's with them during my stay. The location of the property is in a quiet village, however it is suitably located for any one who wishes to explore Kent. Also only a 10 mins drive to the town of Rochester with easy access to London (35 mins on the train, and trains every 20 mins to Victoria Station). Highly recommended and I would certainly return!

Outstanding. Journeyed South for a family wedding and thoroughly enjoyed our time and stay here. Stayed for three nights with two young children and seven adults. Private and peaceful, clean and tidy. Accommodating, friendly and helpful owners. A perfect stay, thank you Push.
