Who'd A Thought It

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I had a 2 night stay . It really was wonderful. The rooms are all unique , very different and set in very peaceful surrounds. The service levels were all very high and always provided in a very friendly and efficient manner. The pub is a unique mix of an old established English country pub and a very funky , chic champagne bar and restaurant. I have never seen anything like it before and it really works. The owners, are a very friendly family who have had the pub for about 40 years and who are all active in the management of the rooms, food and bar. I only had breakfast there and it was great - full English with full choices of extras. Overall good value for money.

Quick tip when setting your sat nav for the pub, as it really is in the middle of the Kent countryside, make sure to set it via Lenham which is only about 5 minutes down the road. If not you run the risk of being directed through some really tiny and almost unpassable lanes, very pretty but difficult to navigate

Room Tip: all the rooms are different so be clear as to which room you would like

Just spent 1 night here in a suit. Fairly pricey room but the food and drink were reasonably priced and exceptional quality and more than made up for the room rate. Saturday night they have a live singer who was great, restaurant busy with a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast great quality but not much choice would have liked some fruit and felt it should have been served in the restaurant not the bar area as this was the last thing you did before checking out and was not anywhere near the experience of the evening before which was exceptional. Staff very friendly and helpful nothing too much trouble All in all great experience and would like to go again without a doubt for food and hopefully another stopover.

I stayed here after working late and that this hotel is far and above 4 stars. Location is beautiful kent countryside. Great old pub with excellent food. The owner has a wonderful champagne collection and a outside wine knowledge. The rooms are named after types of champagne. They are all individual with style. I stayed in the pommery suite. This was a man size room with mucho browns but tastefully done. Robes walk in shower. Double bath tub. Sky TV, I could go on. My view is if you stay in kent and don't stay here your a fool.

What more could you ask for, stayed in bar all day and felt so special, had dinner, best meal I've ever had the level of skill involved in all aspects was outstanding for the area. Would expect this level of service in London and beyond can't wait to try Dom Ruinart

I stayed here for one night as it was handy for a client visit the next day. On arrival I was quite impressed by the standard of the bedroom as it seemed to be well appointed however looks can be deceptive. The bed was uncomfortable and upon close inspection there were some dubious looking stains on the linen. Worse still the level of sound insulation was so poor that you could clearly hear the traffic noise from the adjacent road. As I am a light sleeper I spent most of the night listening to the noise vehicles driving up and down the road. In the morning I was not in a hurry which is a good thing as the chef does not turn up to prepare breakfast until quarter to ten!

Room Tip: As far away from the road as possible
