I strongly encourage anyone booking to get a room with a view of the lake as it provided such a serene, tranquil and idyllic setting for a lovely room with a fantastic four poster bed at such a reasonable price too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The area around the hotel was very scenic for a long walk through various trails.

Thé hôtel is conveniently located if travelling and you need a stop on the A2. We were in a room which was quiet over looking the lake and the road could not be heard. The room was fantastic for a family of 5. 30mins drive to Greenwich and about 15 minutes to Bluewater. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely return. The only improvements we can suggest is a Kingsize bed as my husband is 6’4 and grab handles for the shower/bathroom. And the local See Ho pub has excellent food and well worth a visit. We were booked for 2 nights but wanted to stay longer. We will return.
