Nice enough hotel and good stay, certainly not a 4 star hotel. View from the grounds of the back of the hotel makes it look run down. The rooms were ridiculously hot and the smallest fan was for 3 people. No where to keep anything cool, including no ice machine, which would be very handy when you have small child. Especially as we were staying in a family room The good sides was the breakfast, the leisure facilities and the modern dining area. The bad sides was the room facilities, the rundown parts of the hotel and some of the staff who work in the restaurant who were very rude. 3 stars.

Trying to improve

Pros: Friendly staff and its postion near rhe motorway.
Cons: Decor
Location: It is very close to the motorway so a good place to stay if going to Europe
We had a great stay. The staff are helpful. TheGeat Danes is being refurbished and will be much better when complete.

I booked 3 rooms for one night. I one colleague had already checked in. I arrived with my other colleague and checked in. Rception staff didn't tell us which way to go. First we headed towards the bar...were advised to go the other direction, went past reception, asked which way we should go, and were pointed in direction of the lift. We found the layout confusing and kept going up and down the lift and floors. I feel Reception staff could have done more to help us. We were forced to tell reception staff our mind about the poor service.

comfortable country hotel

Pros: Design and layout, not tacky.
Cons: Reduce bar prices to a sensible level.
Location: Just outside Maidstone, close to junction 7 of the M20 motorway. Near Leeds Castle.
Stayed one night for the Fools & Three Courses dinner. Very good, loads of free car parking. Large comfortable and clean room. Person on reception desk helped carry bags up to room. Had a great evening. Bar prices are very steep. (£10 for a large glass of wine - Dec 2017)
