Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

Booked this hotel as it accepts dogs, the hotel itself is very pleasant and a convenient location for my requirements. I was marginally disappointed with the room as I had anticipated a room based on the images on the website. I personally slept terribly as I found the bed uncomfortable, although my partner slept well. We had a small garden immediately outside the patio doors from the room which was excellent with the dog in tow. Breakfast was swift and lovely. Service was good at all times.

Stayed February 2014, travelled on business

We stayed at the Dog & Bear Hotel in Lenham for Valentine's weekend. We had a lovely time. The hotel is well situated in a lovely village setting. Food was fantastic, and rooms were really lovely. The staff cannot do enough for you. Would go back if in the area.

Just returned from a lovely stay in this charming hotel. The owners could not do enough for us and Sunday lunch was excellent as was breakfast. The breakfast was huge, enough for four people. Can't recommend this enough! Lovely village too, we will definitely return to this fab hotel that was great value for money. You won't be disappointed, we chose the four poster room and it was worth the little bit extra. The bathroom was lovely too, everything seemed new, I think it must have had a recent refurbishment.

Stayed many time at the Dog & Bear. Brian and Anne can never do enough for you! Rooms are great, breakfast excellent and the bar well stocked with well kept beer. My fussy parents who normally live in Spain stayed there too when visiting for our wedding and if you can impress them then you are doing very well! You always get a warm welcome and the restaurant is excellent. Great place if you fancy a pint or fancy watching a match in the bar.

We only stayed for one night but would have happily stayed longer if we'd had the time. Room was a good size, nicely decorated, well equipped and clean.The breakfast was tasty and there was plenty of it, if fact too much for me but not my husband who ate my bacon. The staff were all very friendly and the pub area had a good "vibe". We really enjoyed our stay and thought it was good value for money. We would definitely consider staying there again.

We stayed here two nights and had a very nice stay. The room was clean and cozy. The hostess and staff were very kind. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough. We would definitely recommend it!

Stayed the one night on our way to Dover. Couldn't fault anything. Staff very pleasant and excellent food. Room was spot on and the general ambience made it a most pleasant, albeit short, stay. Will certainly stay again when going to Dover.

Room Tip: I doubt if there is a bad room in this establishment. We got one overlooking the courtyard and it wa...
