beautiful bed & breakfast

Unique 15th Century Bed and breakfast with 17 beautifully presented rooms.  There’s a cosy library, licensed bar and bright & airy conservatory.  On-site parking is available.

Centrally located & only two minutes from the City Centre and train station, this historic property is a short walk from the Cathedral, the Marlowe Theatre, restaurants and shops.

The main-house has nine beautiful boutique-style themed rooms, all uniquely furnished and with an abundance of amenities.

On the original site of the 15th Century stables there are a further eight tastefully furnished bedrooms with space outside for individual seating in the summer.

Honesty Bar

The unique ‘honesty bar’, library and a comfy lounge with eclectic decor and quirky furnishings create an interesting talking point and add to the friendly atmosphere that prevails here. Enjoy a glass of local Kentish beer and a game of chess or amuse yourself with one of the other board games readily available.


Breakfast must be pre-booked and is served between 08:00 – 10:00.  It can be enjoyed either in our wood-panelled Quadrant room or on the terrace in warmer weather.  Guests can choose from a selection of fresh fruit, juices, cereals, pastries, yogurts and preserves, followed by a freshly cooked Kentish breakfast using local produce such as homemade sausages and free-range farm eggs which is hugely popular and a great way to start the day. Vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements are also well catered for.

The Garden

The heritage garden is a little oasis of calm, with a gazebo, arbour for relaxing and enjoying the mild Kentish weather.  There are plenty of deckchairs and garden seating available for guests to enjoy thoughout the summer months.

The property is steeped in history; as well as the recent discovery of a Roman skeleton and other Roman artifacts, an extremely rare Astrolabe Quadrant dating from 1388 was unearthed during 2005 renovations. It was described as ‘one of the greatest discoveries of its kind in the world’ and is currently on permanent exhibition at the British Museum.
