“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012 via mobile

We had a lovely quiet room, staff were excellent and the continental breakfast had many options including being able to boil yourself an egg. Great location to see many historic places in Kent.

A bit of a surprise packet - what appears to be an old English style country pub has very nice accommodation at the rear. We had two lovely quiet, well furnished rooms overlooking a rear grassed area - the whole thing was a bit surreal and looked like we were in Scandinavia or somewhere. Very clean, good meals in the pub. Appears a family run business.

Room Tip: No lift, so if you have any issues dragging a heavy suitcase up the stairs, ask for something on the...

I have stayed at the Camden Arms on several occassions and always look forward to a return visit. This is a small family run hotel attached to a pub serving real ales and home cooked food. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and are always spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly and welcoming and always helpful but above all the service is consistently good. The owners have been in the hospitality industry for many years and their experience shows in delivering excellent down to earth but high quality accommodation and food. Welcoming bar, good beer, fantastic food - not "pub grub" - with something for every taste and budget. The beds are fantastic - I sleep better here than I do at home!There are many hotels in the Tunbridge Wells area that cost a lot more and deliver a lot less than the Camden Arms! Wholeheartedly recommend!

a cold continental breakfast with the option of boiling your own egg. smoked salmon is on the menu but this was on the buffet table in a ramikin - not even enough for one person let alone every one in the hotel. For a cooked breakfast you need to pay and extra £7.50.
The price for the cheapest room is £98! The rooms are small and freezing cold, also a long walk down lots of corridors to an annex at the back. Not really staying in a nice olde worlde pub as you would expect.
The staff however are very nice and the pub itself is good with log fires and a nice atmosphere. If the room was £60-70 with breakfast it would be worth it.

Lovely accomodation, very easy to find and good location. Our room was quiet, loved the bed and bedding made our sleep very comfortable.We chose the continental breakfast and had a vast choice. Excellent quality food.
The staff were very attentive and friendly.
We ate dinner one evening along with a few other people (possibly locals) a good sign.
A good choice of dishes on the menu.

We were just a short drive from Tunbridge Wells so good for shopping etc.

On our second morning there the hot water wasn't on so we couldn't shower.
On telling the staff we were informed a plumber was already at the hotel (9am) fixing the boiler. Fruit baskets were taken up to guests to apologise.
These things hapen and it would not stop us from booking a stay there in the future all in all a very pleasent stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room at the back so it was very quiet. The location of the Hotel was quiet anyway.
