“Fab place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

Purpose made b&b in the heart of Leeds village a few minutes walk from the local pub which has excellent food. Kent house has been designed to be quiet having the on suites at the front & bedrooms at the tear to reduce traffic noise. All the linen & bedding wher clean with a fresh smell, the rooms overlook rolling feilds. The room we had had a Juliet balcony lovely on a warm sunny day. There is a choice of breakfast from full English to continental,with plenty of filter coffee.
Which was locally sourced even the eggs are from the owners fre range chickens. Well worth a stay A+++

I stayed here with my partner during April 13 just for the one night. The b and b is well kept, very clean but lacks things that make it stand out from the rest. On arrival with only one foot in the door we were asked to come straight away and give our breakfast orders. Which I find most out of order and spoils your stay, the whole place was very quiet as well, so they were not rushed. I had already requested soya milk when booked, and this was provided. However a asked if it was possible for something vegetarian, maybe sausages and next morning I was given rather greasy hash browns which I detest. The only thing I really liked was baked beans, and these were forgotten until I asked. The boxes of cereals were left in their boxes and the whole breakfast experience was rushed and very Spartan. On the plus side although we had the cheapest room, it was nice, although again it lacked all the things for a nice stay like cheap radox shower gel just for men ! how about me ! and no extra shampoo or soap or anything. And no loo roll holder. Iwas also concerned about how far the windows opened, incase of needing to escape from fire. The lady is charge is very polite and just could be a touch more welcoming.

Stayed here for two nights while exploring places such as Canterbury, Dover, Great Dixter, Sissinghurst, Bodiam Castle, etc. in Kent. The room was sizeable, the bathroom was big. I always think a room should have two chairs for seating, this room only had one chair. The view from the room was garden area. Breakfast was real good.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the first floor, not ground.

Upon arrival we were very warmly welcomed by the landlady of the house.
The B&B is very clean and comfortable and as they keep hens, the breakfast eggs are as fresh as can be.
They don't do evening food but the pub just a few minutes down the road is perfect with warm atmosphere, good food and very nice staff.
Travelling north after a late ferry from France, this B&B is ideally situated for a good night's rest before moving up.

We had a wonderful recent stay at this B and B.Fabulous peaceful room and absolutely lovely hosts. The owners couldn't do more to make our stay any better even kindly gave us a lift into the village. The breakfast was also fantastic. We will definitely stay here again. A real credit to the owners. Thanks for having us!

We stayed here for 4 nights and were delighted by the service we received. Our "French" room was luxurious and wonderfully warm, when the temperature outside was extremely low. It was welcoming to come back to after days out at Leeds Castle, Bodiam, Scotney, Sissinghurst and Ightham Mote. Karen and Steve gave us a warm welcome and excellent breakfasts. The bed linen smelled of roses! Very highly recommended! Thank you, Karen and Steve. Jean and Derek Frary, Bristol.

Room Tip: We had room 5 - looked out over garden and fields.

We booked a room at Kent House for an overnight stay whilst visiting family in Kent. Having had mixed experiences with other B&Bs in the past, we couldn't have been more pleased with Kent House. The room was exceptional; tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean, with a comfortable king-size bed. I don't normally sleep too well in unfamiliar beds, but had no problems drifting off here! The bathroom was huge, bigger than some actual hotel rooms I've stayed in, with a lovely, large walk-in shower. The location couldn't have been better either, set in the quiet Kent countryside, yet only 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Maidstone. The morning breakfast was also excellent (usually the sign of a good-quality B&B), and set us up very well for the day ahead. The owner, Karen, couldn't have been more accommodating either. Overall, a fantastic B&B, which we will definitely use again when we need to stay in the area. All this for the same price as a typical "budget" hotel, it's a no-brainer really.

Room Tip: The ground floor patio room 2 is recommended, it is huge, and has use of a small terrace area outsid...
