Standard rooms cramped and smaller than I would expect from a Mercure. The privilege rooms are much better.

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Kenneth S 26/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

I have recently used this hotel twice in September and January. On both occasions, management upgraded me to a privilege room, but in the case of my September stay, I arrived early in the small hours of the day booked. At this time, no privilege room was available, so I I had to either take a standard room, or wait up to 6 hours for someone to check out. However, they allowed me the early check in without extra charge. I observed that many clients criticise this hotel for being overheated. I have to agree with this, at least as far as the standard rooms are concerned. I believe that this hotel was built at a time when UK winters were much colder, and building techniqyus would have been geared towards heat conservation, especially as this hotel seems to cater for a large number of older infirm clients. The high room temperature in the standard rooms is likely to be a problem for computer users. HDDs do not like heat. The restaurant is very good, although I seem to remember that the service was a bit erratic during my September 2021 visit. If anything is wrong with your dinner or is service, make sure to make the staff aware of this. You will probably get a free glass of wine or some other concession. The hotel is very near to Leeds Castle, which I think is, or is very near to the birthplace of Anne Bolyn.

Overall, this was a good experience. The stay was excellent and the staff on site were very friendly. The only reason I gave this an 8 rather than 10 is that, try as I may, it was near impossible to actually speak to someone on the phone at the hotel, prior to my stay. other than that, would totally recommend to anyone.

A welcome stopover after being delayed by 4 hours with Eurotunnel. The bar food menu was very welcome as we arrived too late for the restaurant meal we had booked and paid for. The hotel kindly took that into account on our final bill.Our only complaint was the repeated problems with our room key card.

lycallanan 24/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

This is a really lovely place to stay to get away from it all. The rooms are nice and clean, staff very friendly. We had a massage as part of the package but this can be booked separately and we would highly recommend. The swimming pool/jacuzzi/sauna were great. There was a large selection of breakfast including cereals/fresh fruit/cooked which you helped yourself to, however the cooked breakfast was ok if a little overcooked. Just a 20 minute walk into the nearest village (Hollingbourne). Leeds Castle is also a 20 minute walk (however do take torches, there is a path but it gets very dark). Will go back again though.

Had a spa experience out of this world the girls were amazing and catered for all our needs. We have been before only to use the beauty department tbh rooms were lovely but breakfast was over cooked and sausage and bacon was poor quality. The eggs were hard. However the cold buffet was of a more acceptable standard I would only give the breakfast a 4, hotel 8 girls in the spa 10plus!

We spent a 2 night break at the hotel. Room was spotlessly clean although a little dated. Staff were very pleasent and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent and piping hot to the table. The sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool were great and staff very helpful. We are going back for 2 nights in December it was so good.

Awful night Noise from the next room all night and nothing was done about it

tjak146 17/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

I and my partner booked a relax spa package to give ourselves a much need rest. My part a nurse with the Intensive care unit at a nhs trust planned to spoil her a little and felt a weekend away after 3 consecutive night shifts was a needed break. We arrived and were checked into our room. We went to bed after dinner only to be woken up at about 2am with so much noise coming from outside from a group that were talking, singing and chanting sport songs. Unknowing to me they have been checked in to the room next to our room. The noise continued into the room and this time they were shouting banging on the adjacent door between the room and drumming on whatever they could lay their hands on. Reported to the reception and nothing was done. I was left with a migraine and had no sleep all night This is my worst experience ever.
