Stayed for one Saturday night in February whilst playing at a charity event and the first view of the hotel in bright sunshine was quite a wow. Lovely looking country hotel in its own spacious grounds yet within 30 minute walk (mainly on cycle path through fields) to Canterbury. Full of history and hidden secrets, good gardens with plenty of seating areas to watch the birdlife. Nicely decorated with the charm of a well in the dining room (glassed over!). Our stay was a little marred by the fact our reservation of a large room had been lost, and the hotel was full. However, the staff did all they could to accommodate us (at lower costs) in a very small double, and we subsequently received a magnanimous offer from David of a free stay in future. Breakfast was a delight - cooked to order rather than laid out to fester - and perfect proper hot toast rather than the limp stuff to be found elsewhere. It is also well set up for weddings and conferences. I hope the new business venturs are successful because charming and competitive hotels like this one are hard to find.
