Fantastic accommodation fantastic staff. Very accompanying with help to and from venue our Christmas party at Detling show ground they arranged for the back gate to open for it to be easier for us to get there and back. The accommodation was clean and fresh. Breakfast was nice. Meeting the other residents was a nice touch. Was easy to find.

What a fabulous find, right on our doorstep too. Enjoyed our stay so much, we booked an extra night. Breakfast was tasty too :-) Recommend, recommend, recommend!! A summer visit looks like it could be interesting... Lots of rambling to be done. All amenities were available including WiFi. Hosts were lovely and very accommodating.

Tucked away off the main roads so extremely quiet. Made to feel very welcome and breakfast was lovely. There was a variety of cereals, juice followed by a cooked breakfast. Will be returning regularly as very close to spires Alexandra. Prefer this to the big hotels

My wife and I needed somewhere to stay near Maidstone for a night before visiting friends and the usual chain hotels that we normally use were all full or described as noisey, which we did not want having just had a stressful day at a funeral. Searching Trip Advisor I came across this place which was highly recommended. I am... More

Wonderful welcome to a beautiful building. We had an upstairs room and therefore had wonderful beams from the building. Room was comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast was very good especially the sausages. We will use this again if we are down that way again.

'This is a lovely house in a quiet place a little off \'the beaten track\' in the Kent countryside.. The room was very comfortable, the host welcoming and despite the heavy rain I slept very well.' I had a very good dinner in a nearby pub restaurant as they recommended.

Despite arriving early, the lady got our room ready so we could go in before we left for the festival which was much appreciated. She found out details of the route there too so we didn't make the mistake of walking into Maidstone which was uphill on the way back! The room was beautiful with a beamed ceiling, very comfortable... More
