                Relaxing stay. We enjoyed the leisure facilities-Also the proximity to the castle.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Only stayed for one night - no problems, good rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff, nice pool

                Long walk to rooms, for us no problem, but could be for some.

              • Single
                5.4

                Dinner and breakfast were excellent. Great location if you want to visit Leeds Castle. The room were very clean

                Too umporsonal for me, felt like a room number. Would have been nice to know that at Hollingbourne station, no cab are available to take you to the hotel.. Walked for 30 mns with pouring rain. Corridors and public area looked very tired and quite dated

              • Family with children
                6.6

                Breakfast was good.

                The room we stayed in stunk of chlorine. The toilet was hard to flush. Tv was too small for the size of the room. Only one towel in the bathroom and one set of pillows on the bed, instead of having to find them in the cupboard it's best to have them out and ready to use. Cost of movies is way too expensive.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The grounds - with weeping willow trees over a (muddy) pond. Ability to sit and drink outside, enjoy the evening air. Swimming pool - lovely and clean changing rooms

                The price of drink in the bar!

              • Family with children
                6.0

                Easy acces to m20 and Kent hinterland.

                We stayed during the weekend in this hotel that,unfortunately, was the venue of two weddingparties. Drunken en noisy weddingguests, slamming doors when returning to their rooms, kept us up all night. Despite complaints staff did not manage to correct this situation. When adressing our complaints next day to hotel management, we were offered apologies and a discount on the room rate.

              • Single
                8.2

                location - close to J8 of M20

                noisy neighbour - TV on until 3AM. Room too hot

              • Group of friends
                3.8

                breakfast, polite people serving it. Just next to the Leeds Castle

                There is no lobby, dirty rooms, extremely small, not the one advertised. I would rather try a B&B.

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                The food deal was very good value for money

                We felt the room could have done with a coat of paint, as the skirting board had black marks on it in places, and some of the walls had marks on it and some of the paint was starting to flake off of the cove above the t v. As we said above the food was very good there was a problem with the meat was being carved right next to the vegetarian dish and so some of the meat was falling off in to the said dish, and there was a long waiting to get served. With a little bit of forward planning i e moving some of the dishes around so the chef was only carving the meat things could move along much quicker, the same applies to the breakfast with the position of the toaster. These are only small things that would make a lot of difference in the speed of serving the customers and keeping them happy.

              • Couple
                8.2

                Hotel is clean and reasonably priced. Excellent location for Leeds Castle. Food is rather expensive though.

                As I said above, the food is expensive. And our room was a long long way from the lift!

              • Single
                5.8

                One thin bed sheet on top of a mattress protector ruined the nights sleep for me, it was like sleeping on a shower curtain. Every other hotel I've stayed in manages

              • Single
                8.8

                The grounds.

                The room was very hot, as the windows could only be opened 3ins.the gap between the end of the bed and shelf was very narrow.

              • Single
                7.8

                As a regular hotel user for business, this was the best bed and bedding I have experienced for a long time. Like being in my own bed

              • Single
                8.0

                The Grounds

                Restaurant meals slightly over priced compared to other hotels chains of similar standard.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                good hotel. location suited our needs.walking distance to leeds castle.great breakfast.we would definately use this hotel again.

                although we never had the heating on in our room, the rest of the public areas in the hotel did so it was very hot.
