          Individual guest reviews

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The quality of the room service food in the evening.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            It was such a relaxing place with a great ambience. We felt very comfortable and the staff were most helpful. One of the best we have stayed at for the price paid.

          • Couple
            5.4

            The staff were excellent - very friendly and efficient. The grounds were beautiful. We ate breakfast there on two mornings and it was good.

            Chilston Park is one of those places which looks very impressive as you pull up in the car but once you get to your room it is very disappointing. (Obviously I can only comment on the rooms we stayed in, maybe we were unlucky). The public rooms, for example the dining room where we ate breakfast, are splendid, but the rooms (of which we saw two as we had to be moved) are in need of some tlc.

            Excellent location, beautiful manor. Lovely room

            We went to the local pub for dinner, which is cousier and not as pricy, one glass of wine is over 7 pounds. Hotel needs to check why people go elsewhere for dinner.

          • Couple
            5.0

            The restaurant and lounges of this hotel are beautiful. The hotel is surrounded by a lovely garden. The breakfast was good.

            The hotel is situated right next to the m20 so that you can hear the cars driving past when you are sitting in the beautiful garden. The furniture in our room was quite old and a bit shabby. The service in the restaurant was incredibly slow. On the weekend we had to wait up to 45 minutes to be served some tea and toast.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Excellent dinner, excellent service by Caylee, other staff a bit hit and miss.

            Breakfast was only lukewarm.

          • Couple
            8.2

            lovely place to stay, booked the executive room, on arrival was told got a free upgrade to a junior suite, it was fantastic for a romantic weekend away.

          • Couple
            5.4

            The hotel itself is a beautiful mansion house and outbuildings with richly decorated public areas. It is situated beside a lake in a countryside location which is pleasant.

            Walking in one direction I had to stop because the lake had flooded the road. The price per room of 100 pounds seemed unfair for what I considered to be a 2-3 star room inside a 4 star hotel. I was there for a wedding and the best rate they offered the guests was more than inline prices! Criminal. The important things were good such as the bed and the bathroom but no minibar swimming pool or gym. Drab decor and quirkiness made the room feel poor value. The Staff buckled under pressure at breakfast which was totally shambolic. They did not know who was arriving and leaving, settings were not refreshed quickly enough, orders were missed or late, the toast came out cold..the list goes on.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Comfortable rooms. Reasonable wifi access. Excellent breakfast service

            Dinner menu restrictive and very expensive, patchy service. Over run by wedding guests many days.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            as the location and hotel was very good, we had a terrible night sleep due to a very old mattress, i did state my concerns to reception who were going to inform the cleaning staff to be honest i dont think the mattress will change

          • Single
            8.2

            The grandeur, though I stayed in the cottage so didn't get to see that carried through as it was separate from the mansion

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Location

            Waiting until 9.15 for a table we pre booked for 8.30, then not receiving our main course until 10.15pm. Sat dwon for breakfast at 9.45am, didnt receive it until 10.40am. Shocking service

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The room was amazing and the staff very friendly.

            The public areas with the exception of the restaurant felt a little cramped. There wasn't really anywhere to sit and relax without having other guests in very close proximity.

          • Couple
            8.8

            It was beautiful hotel with friendly helpful staff, and a yummy breakfast xxx

            The only one thing I can think of is don't order the cheese platter , we ordered lots of room service and it was lovley but , two of the cheeses were vile n put us off eating anything else thar night( and I normally eat all cheeses blue any) but that is the only thing to moan about, other than that was beautiful xxx

          • Older travelers

            This former stately home is beautifully furnished and in an excellent position for Ashford International Station and Dover. Lovely gardens and very friendly staff.

            The noise from the motorway was very audible. Our bedroom, though beautifully furnished, did not have any drawers so that for a 3 night stay this was difficult as we had to live out of our suitcase. Our room had a problem with plumbing but hopefully that is being sorted out. Lighting was very poor despite the elegant fittings. The bedside lights were useless for reading in bed as they were so low, and the main light had energy friendly but useless bulbs so that we never could see properly. But I would certainly recommend a visit to this hotel.
