Just back from two night stay. Super staff, welcome, food and comfort. Bed linen, duvets, pillows, towels and toiletries of high standard. Would recommend rooms at rear of hotel as quieter due to busy High Street. On arrival was disappointed to encounter overflowing bins at side of hotel. However, at breakfast, young Harry - great young man - explained the...

My husband and I had a joint afternoon tea party to celebrate our Birthdays with family and friends . The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. The Library is a delightful room for a celebration and the staff worked closely with us to make the afternoon a sucess. I would recommend this venue for a celebration. Viv Gardner

My wife and I stayed for the night before she had a driving experience at Brands Hatch which is less than 15 minutes drive away.

The arrival for us wasn't great as receptionist kept us waiting whilst on a phone call, then mixed up our rooms, which may of been a shame as I believe the rooms we had booked were rooms at the back, by the time the mix up was alerted we had already settled into the rooms. We all had a really...

My partner and I just wanted a treat, a night away , good food, comfortable accommodation with a touch of luxury and peaceful surroundings but not a million miles away from home.

The Castle Hotel is a lovely little pub/restaurant with seven bedrooms upstairs and very welcoming staff. The room I stayed in was small, but perfect for one person (you'd struggle with two people given the size of the room and bathroom). The breakfast in the morning is wonderful, and all produce seems to be locally sourced which is a plus....

Our kids took us here for a celebratory Sunday lunch for my wife's birthday - 6 adults and a 5 year old. There is a nice, slightly quirky ambience to the place which seemed very pleasant and our 13.30 pre-booked table was ready and waiting for us. Things started going adrift when I ordered a pint to be told it...

Very welcoming staff, excellent food with some unusual menu items like African babooti, local beer. Great room with quirky ensuite featuring original fireplace. Quiet pub downstairs so good nights sleep. Only marked down one star as mattress felt worn on one side so felt like sleeping on a slope but after a long day in London didn't really bother me....

Eat a delicious full English breakfast with sausages from Normans Butchers next door!

Then later when you have visited the many local attractions come back and dine on a light but always tasty lunch, afternoon tea or scrumptious evening meal. Eat in our busy restaurant or alfresco on the sun terrace. alternatively choose one of our comfy chesterfields in the attractive bar area.
