Dog & Bear Hotel, Maidstone
Good room, great food
Nice hotel. The bed was not the most comfortable but the room and bathroom were nice. Restaurant was good for dinner and the breakfast was wonderful.

A pub with rooms
The room was small. We had a room on the first floor on the front over the pub entrance and even though the road was pretty quiet, the pub was not. Also, patrons from the pub stood on the pavement in front of the pub to smoke so the non-smoking rooms filled with smoke anyway. The weather was very warm while we were there which meant we had to have our window open as there were no fans available. On the positive side, breakfast was well done and the staff, for the most part, were friendly and helpful. We would probably not stay there again.

Med-sized pub/hotel
The hotel was refurbished not oo long ago - but the first signs of time passed snice then are there. Otherwise, it is nice - own car park at th eback o fthe hotel, pub breakfast (with options going beyond full english breakfast) and lunch/dinner available if needed. Might be a bit problematic for larger groups to sit together (unless prearranged), but very comforatble seatng for 6 people. Room amenities are abundant. The only minor caveates are the shower - which is fixed overhead (making it much tougher for small kids) and two separate taps for hot/cold water.
