Dog and Bear Hotel Lenham - Relaxing stay
Great place for overnight stop over. Bar and restaurant were excellent, with good food and ale to chose from. Internet in the rooms was hit and miss, but for a change it was nice not to have it

Very Good8.0
The room was nice and comfortable had all the standard amenities. The server from the restaurant staff could be improved. Slow to clear tables and had to ask about the service for breakfast not forthcoming with helpful information.

Dog & Bear Hotel
Good location but needs a refurb
I have stayed at the Dog and Bear a few times over the last few years while visiting Kent. The hotel is located in Lenham and is within a short distance of the M20. The hotel is around 15 minutes walk from Lenham railway station which has a direct connection to London Victoria. The hotel staff are friendly and the food is good with a varied menu. On the downside, the decor is starting to age and getting shabby in places. While the rooms are generally clean, maintenance has been limited and this is particularly noticeable in the bathrooms. The hotel has a dog friendly policy, both in the bar and the rooms. This has its pros an cons depending on your point of view. It is helpful for those with dogs but as there is no separation, anyone with a dog allergy may struggle. Overall it was a satisfactory stay but given that the rooms would benefit from a refurbishment, I would probably consider other options should I need to stay in the area again.
