Pros: Bedroom clean and nicely decorated, bed very comfortable. Location good.
Cons: The service in the restaurant and general housekeeping
Food good service in restaurant poor. Shower room not cleaned, toiletries not replenished and why would you be provided with bath salts when the room does not have a bath?

Really nice hotel with one or two improvements could be amazing bar and restaraunt really nice! Rooms big a fresh but shower in the bath was very poor, bathrooom was freezing cold due to wall fan which wasn't working also bathroom was not very clean on arrival. Room was close to a lift so late at night could hear people using it due to rather loud voice information in lift. These were all minor faults on what's a lovely place! Really good bed good food and drink and amazing staff. Onsite parking

Pros: Restaurant selection and quality of food lovely.
Cons: Faster lift
Location: I needed to work at Search press so it was close.
Few complaints. Radiator not working. Man came to fix but still not working. Used portable heater in wardrobe. Large Crack in hand basin. Few bits of litter in room e.g. Silver confetti, tiny tissue on floor in bathroom . Breakfast a bit slow coming. Despite these things it is a very pleasant hotel.

Very poor experience

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: Dinner was good with good staff
Cons: Warn people booking a room that crap head banging music will be played all evening. and sack the maintenance team.
Room had toilet seat hanging off, loo holder hanging off and curtain hanging off. Some reduction was made for evening dinner due to the rubbish thumping music played until 11pm. A very disappointing stay, would avoid the hotel for my next visit it Tunbridge Wells

Friendly staff. Good sized room with excellent view. Clean and well decorated. Home from home comfort. Corridors smelt musty and unpleasant but ròom was fine. Brasserie service not good and food served cold. Puddings very late. Not enough staff although restaurant not busy so maybe kitchen to blame. A shame. Perhaps managing a wedding at the same time prioritised kitchen. Needs to be sorted out though. Otherwise a good stay and a good night's sleep.
