We were fortunate to be offered the Smallhythe room on Saturday evening. Duane was amazing and nothing was to much trouble. The room was gorgeous and spotlessly clean. Becky in the evening was delightful and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant. Breakfast was gorgeous and cooked to order. I cannot think of one negative thing to say. It...

7 people for Boxing Day lunch. Great food,fantastic service and a lovely cosy relaxed atmosphere. We could not have asked for more. 2 of us are vegetarians and did not really fancy the sound of the set veg meal. When we asked beforehand if it could be changed it was no issue at all and the alternative was absolutely spot...

Just got back from 2 night break over the new year. Great time away for 3 couples - lovely rooms, very well looked after with good food and drink. Really good live band on NYE and the atmosphere was very buzzy and good fun. Highly recommend.

From the moment we checked in we were made to feel very welcome. The room was very big and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was good and the staff very attentive. Will definitely try a return stay.

Stayed here for a night with friends on New Year's Eve. The Biddendum room was unexpectedly large and comfortable and had some thoughtful touches such as current magazines (always a good plus) and sweets and cookies. The bathroom was clean and functional. White Company toiletries are nice and I would happily stay here again.

We stayed at the White Lion just after Christmas for a night. We're fairly local and have been to tenterden loads of times before but, to be honest, never went in to the white lion as it looks shabby from the outside. This may be a lesson to us not to judge a book by its cover but also a...

This used to be a lovely pub but it has been redecorated badly and the service for food is appalling, an hour wait for a pizza is not good, especially when the place was half empty. It is such a shame as it was a favourite place of ours, I think that the manager has been changed for the worst,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Following a stunning recent refurbishment the White Lion Hotel now gracefully combines ‘olde world’ charms with a contemporary look and feel. All of the rooms (including family and superior rooms) have been delightfully re-furbished to provide guests with flat screen TVs displaying over 40 digital channels, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities and new luxurious beds and bedding. Guests can also make use of the function and conference facilities, complimentary WiFi and the restaurant, serving quality fresh food sourced from the best suppliers. The pub remains the heart and soul of the White Lion Hotel and food is our specialty. The enhanced environment, combined with a fantastic new fresh food offer, allows guests to enjoy either a meal in our bar, or for more of an occasion dine in our restaurant. Diners and drinkers alike can also enjoy one of our many real ales or wines selected from around the world. The town itself has been described as ‘the Jewel of the Weald’, with wide tree lined streets, historic buildings, inns and a host of specialist shops. Out and about there are picture postcard villages to explore, manor houses and gardens, and of course, Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of parkland. ... more   less
