It is tastefully decorated and very clean with all the extras that you would need. It is close to the center of town but also quiet and a short drive to all the treats that Kent has to offer. We had a wonderful stay.

The owners are very welcoming but not obtrusive and "Bodger" the small dog was a delight and that is from a non-doggy person. The only slight drawback which loses 1 star was that from our viewpoint there was no garden to sit out in, but Roland was in the process of rectifying this.
