We had lunch in the main Lakes restaurant. As Xmas is coming we decided to go for the Xmas special. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. The service is excellent. The food is very well presented and looked and tasted amazing. I can't wait to eat there again.

Had been given a Red Letter day experience of a one night Rural Hotel Escape for two for my 60th birthday. We chose Hempstead House as our hotel of choice and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We had arrived early and although our room wasn't...

As the review title says this is the best hotel I've stayed in and I will definately be returning. The room I stayed in was very spacious, well laid out and clean. The gym was fine for a 45 minute work out and there was a swimming pool which I didn't use unfortunately but looked great. What I really like...

Had a fantastic night a few weekends ago. The RLSS Kent Branch definitely found a beautiful place to hold their annual dinner and dance. Good selection of meal choices for their planned 3 course meals. Wait staff were very professional and friendly. The experience was superb and I can see why this is a very good choice for events.

I booked my room, a standard double room for 2 people, and was so excited. I got a really good deal, what I thought was a deal until checkout I was faced with an extra £40 charge! The bill simple stayed £37.80 for extra bed. So I queried this and she said the double room had been booked for 1...

We pre-ordered our food as in a birthday group. Unfortunately out of the 4 steaks ordered mine was awful - very very tough. I had asked for it to be cooked medium but was well done to inedible. It was of varying thickness compared with the other steaks which probably didn't help. Strangely the only veg on all the plates...

We have just spent 3 days and nights at Hempstead House. We came down to Kent to attend the funeral of my Mum aged 96. We could not have chosen a better hotel to stay at , warm cosy, welcoming, friendly, spotlessly clean just to mention a few things. Each evening we dined in the Lakes Restaurant , the service...

Me and my partner stayed here following a shopping trip to different locations. The hotel it's self was very clean and the staff were very friendly. On the downside we stayed in a double room i found the bed really small, there was also a noise throughout the night which I could only describe as a hoover noise. We didn't...
