    Hello P. Brown, We are located in St Andrews, Scotland, just around the corner from the Old Course. I believe Maidstone is in the south of England, and it's far away from our hotel! Kind Regards, Carmen

    We have a deluxe room which can have 3 single beds and a pull out or a king, single and pullout depending on your needs. Remember it is also the best rate when you book direct with the hotel.
