Great hotel

Welcoming, friendly staff. Everywhere clean comfortable.

Filthy, smelly and uninhabitable room

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Anonymous Business - 20/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was filthy with dirt marks all over the walls, stained bedding, uneven floors, multiple strips of wallpaper were peeling off the wall, there was mould growing in bathroom with a ceiling light not fixed well in the shower and paint was flacking off the ceiling. There was a rather large and rather sharp chip out of the bathroom sink and there was a horrendous smell in the room. I had to ask to change rooms as it was uninhabitable. The second room was not much better. Yet again there were chips out of the sink, the shower was cracked and the window didn’t shut which meant the room was freezing cold at night and infested with spiders. Breakfast was very disappointing with stale and cold food. Would not stay at this hotel again, certainly not worth the large price tag.

Lauren Couples - 11/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed in the hotel for one night due to a family wedding which was taking place at the hotel. The venue was perfect for the wedding and everything was well covered and set out by the staff. However, the hotel room itself was a let down. The pillows were hard, the room was dusty and the bathroom was dirty.

short pool open times and shared with swim lessons

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Sadly we were quite disappointed. Although the swimming pool opening times were mentioned on the website, it’s still surprising the short window that you can actually use the pool. Only evening sessions when we stayed and there were private children’s swim lessons going on at the same time taking up half the pool. This was not advertised anywhere when we booked and we were turned away by the swim teacher quite rudely even though the receptionist said we could use the pool. The pool was also excessively filled with chlorine. Such a shame because it could be a nice pool, but felt ripped off by the setup. The hotel is ok and the restaurant staff were very good and friendly. But it does feel like the hotel would benefit from being updated with a refurbishment. So all in all disappointed and feel coned and ripped off by the pool setup. But thank you to the restaurant staff who made us feel very welcome.

Value for money stay

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Janet R. Families - 06/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed on the 2nights bnb +1nights dinner deal. Provided a good base for seeing local family. Pluses: spacious room , comfortable bed , good bathroom. Perfectly satisfactory breakfast. Great swim in a nice pool ( with none else but us in.) Not quite so good; decor in room Much in need of improvement, shabby and rundown, pencil marks on walls corridor decor also in need of upgrade. (Had seen better days.) Dinner although adequate and plenty of it was uninspiring, bar meals food, burgers etc. We had gammon steak that was a bit overcooked and dry. Was it chefs night off Sunday, or is there an issue about getting staff? Have stayed in quite a few Mercure and dinner menu has always been better, even on the set meal But overall given the deal rate it was reasonable value for money and we had a pleasant weekend

Great staff, terrible hotel.

Mr R. G. Friends - 05/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I wanted to let you know how deeply disappointed and rather angry I was with the condition of the rooms in this hotel. I have never had the pleasure of paying £150 a night to say in such an awful room. The bathroom was Mouldy with cracked soap dishes, rusty screws and corroded fittings. The room was fitted out with furniture that looked like it had come out of a skip. The carpet was threadbare and the wallpaper was coming of the walls, not to mention the holes. The lack of a room safe was also noted as was the lack of proper water glasses or even bottled water. The one thing that I found impressive were your staff, they were a credit to you. They could not be more attentive or Pleasant and nothing was to much trouble. I have taken pictures of all the above issues, If you wish to view them I would be happy the forward them to you via email. I do hope you can address these problems as I will be coming to the area more and more in future

Sam Couples - 05/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived for a nights stay. There was no hearing in the hotel and it felt cold as soon as we entered reception. The room was cold but once we turned in the heater it warmed up. There was a wedding that night - the service in the restaurant was extremely slow - 40 minutes before starter arrived. The another good Hal hour before main meal arrived. Dining room was very cold. The staff were lovely particularly Ernest who was very helpful. The food was adequate but felt we could have made a better meal at home. Beds were comfortable and the pool was lovely. From the outside the hotel looks lovely, but once inside it’s more of a conference hotel! Tunbridge wells is a lovely place but sadly wouldn’t book this hotel again.

Graham J. Families - 04/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We have stayed here before - hotel a little more tired than previously, staff were friendly but a little distracted. Hotel itself was being painted, room was very warm when we arrived, elements were poor e.g. shower wouldn't get warm, floor tiles cracked. We had very noisy neighbours upstairs at One O'Clock in the morning.

Good stay, but off the beaten track

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

wurldwarker 28/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Great staff, nice hotel but the pool was only open to guests between 6pm and 8pm which is a strange time as guests are either yet to return or are preparing to go out for dinner. Surely 7am to 9am would be a better 2 hour slot for a pre-breakfast swim. Also, no safe pedestrian access off the site, we had to walk down the roadway when going out at night. But all the staff were great, helpful and friendly.
