This was our hotel for 2 nights whilst having our wedding reception in the Tenterden working men's club. The family friendly atmosphere was a joy, the room was clean and homely. All in all a great stay....

A friend and I wanted a snack on Sunday lunch time (most of the restaurants and pubs were doing Sunday lunch) we went to the White Lion and decided to have just a starter each, and both were excellent.

We stayed here on an overnight stay in September. The room was truly beautiful, set in a unique building. The little extras in the room, a treat from the chef and sweets, added to the overall charm.

We were so lucky to find availability fairly last minute after a cancellation. A one night stopover, at first the price seemed high at £110 for a B&B with only continental breakfast. But the room we had was just lovely with some gorgeous extras, lovely decor. We felt really at home immediately. The staff were so friendly and helpful too....

We arranged a last minute overnight stay, so took the last room available. It was the family room on the top floor which was comfortable and well equipped.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Following a stunning recent refurbishment the White Lion Hotel now gracefully combines ‘olde world’ charms with a contemporary look and feel. All of the rooms (including family and superior rooms) have been delightfully re-furbished to provide guests with flat screen TVs displaying over 40 digital channels, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities and new luxurious beds and bedding. Guests can also make use of the function and conference facilities, complimentary WiFi and the restaurant, serving quality fresh food sourced from the best suppliers. The pub remains the heart and soul of the White Lion Hotel and food is our specialty. The enhanced environment, combined with a fantastic new fresh food offer, allows guests to enjoy either a meal in our bar, or for more of an occasion dine in our restaurant. Diners and drinkers alike can also enjoy one of our many real ales or wines selected from around the world. The town itself has been described as ‘the Jewel of the Weald’, with wide tree lined streets, historic buildings, inns and a host of specialist shops. Out and about there are picture postcard villages to explore, manor houses and gardens, and of course, Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of parkland. ... more   less
