Dog & Bear Hotel
Wonderful hotel
Arrived into a lovely village and found the hotel very easily lovely large car park at the back of the hotel. Lovely warm welcome from the reception and shown where our room was and all the other amenities were. Lovely room very clean with a comfortable bed, nice bathroom and a lovely view over a fantastic courtyard with tables to have a nice drink. Breakfast was great with a fantastic selection and again very friendly staff. The restaurant was lovely and the food was fantastic it was one of the best burgers I have ever had. The bar staff were also very friendly. Only one negative were the chairs in the bar area were not very comfortable, but this would not stop us returning for another visit or recommend it to family and friends. Thank you again for a fantastic stay.

A quaint old hotel with modern comfort.
It was a wonderful, quaint old hotel with modern facilities yet maintaining the sense of tradition. The room was spacious and breakfast luxurious. Although it was some distance away from Canterbury the village of Lenham make the travel worth it. I would return to the hotel if the opportunity arises.
