My family visited for Christmas drinks last night and it was awful. Considering we went at 6 and it was pretty empty the place was a mess. The bar was sticky and covered in glasses. We were then told there was a table with sofas that we could sit at but that it needed cleaning. But no one came to...

Booked here for 1 night whilst attending a function at nearby Penshurst Place. Looks great from outside, great parking facilities which is nice to have. Was welcomed straight away by the gentleman behind the bar. He showed us to our room personally. The room was very dated but some might call that character. It certainly wasn't as nice as the...

I stayed just one night after flying in from the US. Exhausted and just wanted a quiet room with a comfy bed and a nice bathroom. 3 for 3... especially the bed! My only regret was not sampling the selection of beers.

an expensive mistake! Poor food and indifferent service. Minced venison with pasta, very third rate for the price charged. Stale bread. Ice creams arrived semi melted. Plum crumble was like solid rock. Obviously reheated in microwave and inedible. Kitchen obviously understaffed as we waited ages for food and waitress never came near us to apologise or explain why.

The things that stood out for us were the staff and the service, both poor. I know smiling is not essential but they are also free - unfortunately we did not see one from 'any' of the 4...

My wife and I had a fantastic weekend staying at the Leicester Arms. My room was spacious and the bathroom was luxurious. Best of all, the breakfast was one of the finest I have ever had! In addition, the service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

Situated in a pretty village near die picturesque Penshurst Place this old inn is a nice hotel to stop on the way to Dover right in the middle of Kent. The place has been lovely restored and the rooms were clean and prettily furnished. Our room was right at the top of the building and very comfy with a modern...
