I organised a group of over 30 for a (June) weekend and everyone in the group gave it excellent reviews. The staff could not do more to look after us. Considering we were a large group and the hotel busy too, the food was very good, promptly served and plentiful with the breakfast spread / choice a special comment. Everyone commented on having a good room with the first class leisure facilities a distinct bonus.

The restaurant layout meant that as a group, we were both on our own and still part if the restaurant 'buzz'. Lovely gardens for pre-dinner drinks as well a really friendly lounge area.

Last year we stayed in a corporate hotel that was very good too but lacked the personal touch experienced here.

Well done and many thanks.

Room Tip: We stayed in the original part that had the character and perhaps quirkiness of the original house - no complaints at all.

As the Red Lion at Brede was fully booked and the Rainbow Trout at Broad Oak only serve Beef on their Sunday roast every 3 weeks for some bizarre reason! We thought we would try the Flackley Ash. I am put off when I pull up at a hotel entrance and find the front flower beds full of weeds... I guess I expect too much but the food was quite good for a Sunday Roast @ £9.95. If you don't mind mothers shouting across the conservatory for their daughters to come in from the garden for lunch because they are too lazy to get up from their table, being given the menus before we had even sat down, very loud people at other tables eating their roast with their fingers, the waiting staff laying the knife and fork around the wrong way (with arms full of tattoos ~ surely wear a long sleeve blouse?), being asked when ordering mineral water "do I want a half pint or a pint", watching torn and dirty curtains blowing out of the bedroom windows, asking to have coffee in the lounge but the waitress wlaked off before we could order and was never seen again, having to pay at reception on the way out where they could not find the bill anyway etc you will be fine. Then I had an argument with some guy at the carvery who thought it was quite alright to barge into the serving queue in front of me without asking because he was serving his daughter. I had to remind him he should be teaching his daughter some manners as well as himself ~ not that this is the fault of the hotel of course. Made a booking with the Red Lion for a couple of weeks time as soon as got home. I ask too much obviously!

A friend and I stayed 4 nights in a twin room with our dogs. The room was lovely, facing the garden with French windows and Juliet balcony. It was large and well furnished as was the bathroom. The beds were really comfortable and the shower excellent. We ate in each night and were so glad we did - the dinners were delicious as was the breakfast -large choice of freshly cooked food and of cereals, fruit, meats etc. The staff in the restaurant were attentive whilst unobtrusive and both there and in reception could not have been more pleasant and helpful. The pool is lovely and warm and clean. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. We very much hope to return and we have recommended to others.

One of the reasons for staying was the swimming pool - we weren't disappointed. The jacuzzi was clean and sauna and steam perfect and extremely clean.

The waiting staff, young and very friendly, wanted to impress; the front of desk staff on the Thursday were ok but Jenny the manager; head receptionist Chloe and Olivia the young waitress and another girl (sorry, forgot her name) were fab!

Room was pleasant although decor very different from home;,nets at windows and curtains to match 'feature' wallpaper; nevertheless immaculately clean. Would have been lovely to push the windows fully open to enjoy the May sun; felt slightly trapped! We had a twin room and my mattress was too soft ( goldilocks and the three bears) so they changed it for the next night!

The food portions were very generous; we found it impossible to finish them. The food was, I am sorry to say, the most disappointing part for me; most of the food extremely greasy and over-cooked, sorry Flackley but the greasy smell resonated even in the fresh tomatoes at breakfast.

Overall, if you want a super spot to sleep and swim, this is it!

Returning from a walk in Rye on a Sunday morning, we stopped by the Flackley Ash for a Cappuccino. They were accommodating (as they were about to set up for lunch) but the coffees were poor and had a very thin layer of froth. I would have expected MUCH better for £3.70 per cup. All told, 2 x coffees and a glass of coke for £8.50 was a disappointment.
