Detling Coachhouse offers the best of everything; a great location, easy access to main roads but very quiet, a very warm welcome, beautifully clean rooms and a very good choice of breakfasts. An all round great package!

My wife and I booked easily over the internet and found the Coach House easily from the directions given. We were warmly welcomed, without undue fuss, and enjoyed a good and quiet night's sleep, followed by a wonderful breakfast.

We decided to book two nights at Detling Coach house following the reviews on Trip Advisor, and have not been disappointed. Perfect base to explore the local area. Very clean, and has all you need in the room. We arrived un-prepared - no bottle opener and no device charger. Emma was most helpful, and more than happy to supply both...

The detling coachouse is a good place to stay, the breakfast is very good and will fill you up. However, I was in a downstairs room and it was a bit noisy because you could hear everyone outside the door. This was a big problem if people came in when you were trying to sleep. There was also loud noises...

I stayed here on business and will definitely book again next time. Fantastic location, comfy beds. The owners couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast was great. The only problem I had was a moron Guest complaining about anything. Stuart

I booked on the basis of positive reviews, sadly my experience wasn't positive at all. On arrival at 8.10pm, hardly late. I was checked in by a lady who looked like I'd women her and wasn't happy about it. The noise from a shower pump above kept me awake and my own shower was a pathetic dribble (I was later...

This was my first experience at a Bed and breakfast and I'm glad it was here. The room was amazingly pristine and cleaned everyday. Coffee and tea including in the room.

Fantastic room with rustic decor, good sized TV, extremely nice bed. Wash facilities were top notch. Location is incredibly quiet yet close enough to Maidstone for it to be convenient. The hosts are lovely and very much let you do your own thing. Breakfast was good, with a wide range to choose from.
