Stayed for a couple of nights in April 2014, in the Clover room. Room is a good size and is clean, but three main downsides. First, it sounded like it was next to a large water softener/water pump/water treatment room, which makes a pretty loud and constant humming noise which makes it very difficult to sleep. Also, the bed slats were incredibly creaky, meaning any attempt to move on the bed is met with a loud creaking noise and does not allow for a good night's sleep. Last, the TV is exceptionally small given the size of the room. It's placed so high up as to almost make it pointless to watch. Altogether, it did make me wonder how it achieves a 4 star rating.
That said, the rest of it is great - very friendly and knowledgeable staff, incredible food in the pub and in a quiet but accessible location near the M20. Would recommend visiting for lunch but not to stay over.
