      The traffic noise was loud. The shower was cold and only luke warm intermittently. The chair at the desk was very uncomfortable so it made it difficult to work of an evening.

      breakfast. Nice staff. Deco in lobby restaurant, nice garden.

      I do not really mean to complain, but seriously the power of the light bulbs in the rooms is ridiculous and it makes the rooms horribly unfriendly, esp with the black. In fact there is almost no light. Also, another thing the company you work with is not reliable and does not forward the emails to you I never got any answer about a parcel I wanted to receive and in the end I had to call.

      Please refer to my comments in my letter handed to your receptionist on my departure

      The staff are very friendly and helpful. Although an old traditional building from the outside the interior has been modernised and is very contempary . The rooms are very clean and comfortable especially the beds.! I enjoyed my stay there and in comparison to other hotels in the same area which I have previously stayed in I would say this one is by far the best.

      I would have liked a kettle in the room with tea and coffee facilities - this is available from the bar 24hrs a day at an extra cost.

      Inconveninet parking faciclities, not able to connect to wifi

      The location was perfect for us and the service from the staff was excellent. The accommodation was as expected for a hotel in this price structure.

      A few niggles really. firstly parking could have been better although we were able to park opposite over night for free. Secondly a lack of hot water all the time which meant very short showers. Thirdly the lack of choice in a 5 channel tv and finally no wifi in the bedroom we stayed in.

      Good location and excellent shower in bathroom. Staff first rate.

      Rooms very basic

      The staff were very professional and polite, always willing to help or give directions to interesting places nothing seemed to much trouble for them. The hotel was clean and smart a nice feature was the small garden were we sat to relax with a wine after our days outing.We would stay here again and will reccommend this to our friends.

      It is just a few minutes walk to Tunbridge Wells train station and close to the Royal Day Spa.

      No sound proofing. You can hear the banging of the fire doors everytime it closes when people pass through it. The footsteps of the occupants above the room where we stayed can be heard loudly. The carpet in the room we stayed in has stains and those in the corridor, they look worn and needs changing. The stairs leading to the gym stinks strongly of stale urine perhaps the toilet along there needs to be aired now and again.

      Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Room was clean and adequate for an overnight stay. Good location. It is exactly what it calls itself 'Smart and Simple'. Keep this in mind and you will not be disappointed.

      Parking is poor. Shower room was very small. Only one pillow each although I'm sure if we'd asked we could have had more!

      The name says it all - Smart and Simple. The garden was a bonus.

      Liked the decor & relaxed atmosphere. Very helpful staff.

      Would have liked a cooked breakfast.
