I'm guessing that Best Western have taken over what was previously a run-down independent hotel and are renovating it. The renovated areas are very nice; the older parts are - as other reviewers have said - a bit dated. However, the delightful, friendly staff and excellent location more than make up for the odd bit of flock wallpaper.
My only real criticism is the breakfast which is a bit limited if you don't want a fry-up (the grim "luxury muesli" is at least 90% sugar) and which inexplicably has to be eaten in a screened off, gloomy area of the dining room so that the nice tables near the windows can be laid up for dinner. I'd have thought that the intervening 10 hours would have left enough time to re-lay the tables post-breakfast. That apart, I really enjoyed my stay and would certainly use the New Kent again.
