BEST WESTERN Rose And Crown Hotel

125 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DD, UK – 0844 387 6206

Check In was friendly and efficient. The room is a little tired and the single bed isn't very comfortable. The shower pressure wasn't great but beyond those minor issues the room has everything you need. Quite comfortable enough for a few nights. The bathroom accessories are good quality and bottled water is provided. Breakfast is cooked to order and very good. Plus a basic continental buffet. No fresh fruit but all the other things.

Friendly relaxed hotel in a pleasant location. I enjoyed my stay. Suggest hotel management take keeping fire doors closed a little more seriously - better safe than sorry; otherwise all good.

Premier Inn Tonbridge North

Hilden Manor, London Road, Tonbridge TN10 3AN, UK – 0871 527 9098

As you would expect from a premier Inn the room are the same as any other in the country. Clean and tidy, staff are probably the friendliest I've come across at a premier Inn. Shout out to the beautiful lady in reception. Be warned it is right next to a busy road so opening a window is a preference most wouldn't like. But that said the rooms have no air conditioning so if like me the room was too hot it's extremely difficult to cool down. That is my only negative of the place.

I've been here many times as we like to visit Riverhill Himalayan Gardens. The rooms are always good as the bathrooms exceptional. Breakfast is great with plenty to choose from. The pub next door, where you eat, is smaller than your average beefeater but the garden is large. No play area for the kiddies. They have recently installed a fence around the garden, which is a welcome addition, as the garden is next to a busy road. Always recommend this place.

Riding Schools & Equestrian Centres

Riding Farm Equestrian Centre

Riding Lane, Hildenborough, Tonbridge TN11 9LN, UK – 01732 838717

A first class equestrian centre with fantastic facilities. The instructors are BHS trained and absolutely amazing. They cover all disciplines and hold many clinics and events. The staff work extremely hard, caring for the horses and ponies, looking after clients. It's a very friendly yard, catering for complete beginners to competitors; people go out of their way to help. Whether you're looking to buy a horse, stable your horse there, or take lessons I couldn't recommend Riding Farm highly enough!

Great equestrian centre and lots to offer! I've been here for 2 years now and purchased my boy from Sally after a very short loan! I've had great support with my boy and our development at riding farm from Sally and the team and even had the chance to experience our first couple of hunts last year! I have also been extremely lucky to have had further private training and coaching from James Gosling over the past year and cannot recommend his lessons enough. Not only has he taught me XC (which I never thought I'd do), he has built both mine and my horses confidence in jumping, brought us both on and even taken us off of site on days out for training and competing! Vary caring and considerate and one of the best coaches I have had the joy to be taught by. Very flexible as to lessons and worth every penny. �
