Excellent . Very friendly and welcoming. Rooms were very clean and fresh. Breakfast was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We stayed as 3 couples as we were attending a wedding at Cooling castle . Everyone enjoyed their stay. The beds were really comfortable. They couldn't do enough to help. The kitchen was clean and you are able to...

The help your self breakfast was "continental". The croissants were stale. Poor standard to say the least. Shower packed up at first attempt to use it. Dead spider on the carpet. Toilet seat loose. I honestly can't recommend this place.

Kevin F, Owner at Orchard Cottage, responded to this review

The gentleman was informed some time prior to arrival that unfortunately both owners of Orchard B&B had to temporarily step away from running the accommodation as my wife had been diagnosed with cancer and I was caring for her full time during her chemotherapy treatment. We had decided to try to honour existing bookings as, for example, the nearest available...

My parents have stayed here several times when they have visited from Cornwall. The proprietors are friendly and very welcoming. The rooms are well decorated and immaculate. You have a lounge area where you can relax and a kitchen fully equipped also. I'd highly recommend.

We stayed at Orchard Cottage prior to our daughters wedding at Cooling Barn. This is a fabulous place to stay and so so friendly. You get the feeling that you have gone from home to home. The rooms are of the highest quality and comfort. If we are ever in the area again then this is the place we would...

A party of six of us stayed overnight at Orchard Cottage whilst attending a wedding at Knowle Country House and what a wonderful find it was. We did not expect the high standard of accommodation and attention to detail. Kevin was so welcoming and showed us around the property when we arrived. The rooms were very clean with lovely bedding...

I was a little apprehensive as only stayed at a B & B once before and was not impressed. I need not have worried Orchard Cottage is perfect. We had room 1 which is a lovely double room with ensuite facilities. It had everything we could wish for and more and also use of a self-contained kitchen. I have stayed...

This bed and breakfast offers completely self contained accommodation. It's very well run by Kevin & Sue. It's very clean and comfortable. Perfectly placed for our daughters wedding at Cooling Castle Barn. Orchard B&B offers a brilliant package for brides on their big day. Very highly recommended.

A group of us stayed at Orchard Cottage while we explored Chatham and Canterbury. The rooms were very comfortable and Kevin and Sue made us feel very welcome - like being at home. What more can we say. Oh, and a delicious breakfast!
