We stayed at the largest and the best room the hotel had. It was huge indeed and we didn't really need all the space for two. It was a different experience compared to typical white scandinavian hotel rooms. The room was lovely. We ate the tasting menu at the hotels restaurant, and it was excellent. Even our afternoon tea moment...

As always, the "make or break" for any hotel is the people who work there...everyone here gets a gold star - helpful, friendly and efficient. A special mention for Guy on reception...

This place is a "stone's throw" from Leeds Castle (Kent) described as, 'one of the most beautiful castles in the world'. We stayed for one night, dinner, bed and breakfast. We booked a suite, of which there are only three. However, it would be more accurate to describe our accommodation as "en-suite" - we were given the Queen Anne Suite...

We had a lovely afternoon at Chilston celebrating our good friends 25th wedding anniversary. Our personal waiter Joe made the day even more fun, he was very attentive and didn't mind us being slightly tipsy. Food was lovely and service was brilliant.

A beautiful hotel located in the Kent countryside. We had a very comfortable room and dined a la carte both nights. The food was excellent served in the Marble restaurant. All of the staff were very professional in the way they managed the guests, especially Joe & Zac. Will certainly return.

Great place for a business meeting. A nice country hotel which allows you space to concentrate. They don't have much in terms of technology, a basic TV and some poor lighting. However the food is good and service ok.

Stayed here as part of a wedding party in April. The rooms were fairly small but comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The wedding itself was very well organised and ran smoothly. The menu was good and well cooked. I would definitely return here for another stay.
