A very nice stay in Tunbridge Wells

Cons: The only downside was dinner and breakfast took their time coming but saying that they were worth the wait.
Lovely one night stay at the Royal Wells. Had a very clean and comfortable superior Double room on the third floor, over looking the pleasant views to the rear. Friendly and helpful staff were alway at hand when required. The bar had some quality ales on tap and the breakfast room was very nice, buzzing and light, a real feature of the hotel in our opinion. Would certainly recommend the Royal Wells.

Very comfortable hotel.

Pros: Felt up to date as well as retaining enough original features.
Nice decor, modern but with beautiful old exterior and still felt characterful inside.

started out great

Pros: Everything apart from the dirty bed !
Cons: Employ somebody capable of replacing bedding
Location: Perfect for High Rocks Wedding venue
We arrived and were very impressed. The room was lovely and had all the things that a lot of hotels miss..a mirror near a plug, toilet brush, books and bits making it homely, lovely........ Then we went to get in the bed...the sheet had come off of the corner exposing the heavily stained mattress cover which must have been obvious to whoever made the bed, it was disgusting (I have photos). The man on reception was very quick to respond but the offer of covering it up with another sheet wasn't really acceptable. He did remove the cover and replaced the sheets. So disappointing as I would have rated this hotel as perfect but would now not book again. A silly let down by one member of staff who will ruin the hotels reputation. Our comment was being passed to the manager but we have as yet, almost a week on not heard anything, we really thought there should have been a mention about it the following morning.
