“Nice place with room for improvement”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed at room 1. This room is very noisy. You can literally hear conversations upstairs and every foot step. The bathroom could have been cleaner. Stores and restaurants are far. All in all a nice place but it has room for improvement.

Stayed August 2014, travelled solo

Thank you for your review, unfortunate the room you booked had'nt finished being cleaned due to you arriving very early requesting you just wanted to leave your bags and go, which you failed to do.
It was unfortunate for you, sorry if there was a noisy family above you normally we don't have a problem.

As for an evening meal or food shops, there are plenty of places to eat local to us The George Inn being one of them 5mins away in our village The Dirty Habbit pub and Restaurant 10 mins The Windmill even closer both in Hollingbourne, and at the top of our lane is a convenience store which sells about everything.

My husband took me here as a surprise for my 30th birthday. Really beautiful, spotless rooms, peaceful setting and an amazing breakfast! Loved spending the weekend here and cant wait to return soon! We stayed in room 5 which has the most amazing roll top bath-missing that already!

Stayed here for 2 nights, and thoroughly recommend it. Our ground floor room was spacious and well appointed, with double doors leading to a patio. The bed was very comfortable, and ensuite was modern and roomy, with good shower. Breakfast was continental or cooked.

Our hostess recommended The George pub for meals - it was an easy 10 minute walk away, and was ideal. Kent House is also an ideal place to stay if you intend to visit Leeds Castle, as it's just a short drive away.

Just returned from a 3 night stay - excellent modern small 5 bedroom B&B with nice views and a patio area to the rear lawned garden. Good breakfast home cooked to order - similar cost to the main chain hotel which may have more facilities but you have a large bedroom than most and individual decor and fittings in each room. Nice lounge area and dining room. Would rate this as 4 star B&B. Village location just 5 minutes away from the motorway. A good alternative to rooms in Leeds castle courtyard where we stayed last year for a similar price.
The only improvement on the breakfast would be to offer grapefruit as a choice to cereal starter and grapefruit or applejuice as an alternative to orange juice with the English breakfast (Continental breakfast is also available a an alternative)

Room Tip: Pay a little extra fro the rear top room 5 which has a tub bath as well as a seperate double shower

Only able to stay one night. It was a last minute booking and the owner was very helpful and accommodating for a late night arrival. Room was clean, modern with a generous en- suite. Breakfast was good and was served in a lovely bright annexe. Nice location overall.
Bed was very comfortable and has a great nights sleep.

Using the old TV reference as we were staying in Maidstone to go to the studios for "Later with Jools..."
Ideally placed with great hosts....lovely room and good traditional full breakfast!
We would definitely recommend Kent House..
