"Quick getaway break"

Jessecat1, Essex, United Kingdom 22/09/2020

Just back from a couple of nights staying at this hotel. We've had a lovely time, every staff member that we came across was friendly, welcoming & so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, they're a credit to the hotel. We arrived early at 11.30am, thought it was worth asking if it was possible to check in early to which we could (usual time is 3pm), just had to wait 30 minutes. We were offered refreshments & shown to the lovely little lounge area to sit & wait. We had booked a Superior King Room but were upgraded to a Super King Suite on check in. Fabulous amount of space. The decor was a tad tired but everything was very CLEAN which is what matters. We later found out from staff that rooms are slowly being redecorated. It's a nice layout, lots of individual rooms spread about the ‘grounds', most, if not all with their own front door which is quite a plus in the current Covid times, less communal hallways etc. We had paid for breakfast when booking. This was served in the main dining room or you could collect it & take it back to your room. We opted to sit in the dining room. The tables were all a nice distance apart, there were plenty of hand gel stations on offer. Everything was individually wrapped for hygiene. There was plenty of choice, both continental & cooked English. We helped ourselves to the continental but the cooked breakfast was served by the staff & you can freely state how much of everything you'd like on your plate. They currently have a reduced main menu on offer, but still a good variety of choice. We ate there on our first night, the food was lovely, fresh & hot - thoroughly enjoyed it. On the second night we drove 5 minutes into Faversham which is a lovely little town. We enjoyed a nice pre-dinner drink in the sunshine on the cobbled street outside the Bear Inn followed by a nice meal in Ask. We were lucky I suppose that it wasn't too busy while we were there so not a lot of ‘people dodging' was necessary & the staff were not rushed so had time to talk & answer questions etc. The hotel is situated 5 minutes drive from the M2 so easy to get to. There's plenty to see & do in the surrounding area making it an ideal base. We just cannot fault the whole experience. With the lovely staff & eventually all rooms redecorated this hotel will be a hard one to beat. A big thank you to everyone that made our stay so enjoyable, we'll be back again I'm sure!

As the title states. I can confirm, it truly is. I can't fully put into words my gratitude to Janet and the rest of the girls for their Hospitality over the last few days. You are all an absolute credit to the owner. You really can't beat a hotel with such a personal touch. I will have no hesitation in booking here again the next time I'm In Faversham and highly recommend this gem to anyone looking for a hotel in this area. Thank you.

Last weekend we had another lovely two night break at our favourite hotel...Judd's Folly. We have spent a lot of great weekends here over the past year, one of the times was just before lockdown (21-23 March). We had booked various restaurants and all cancelled on us at the last minute! The team looked after us all weekend, bringing our breakfasts, lunches and dinners to our room (abiding by the Covid rules). They couldn't do enough for us and made, what could have been a nightmare, very enjoyable. This time we introduced our closest friends to the experience. Well...Jason, Chris, Jan and the rest of the lovely team didn't disappoint...as our friends were just as enamoured with the place and people as we are! The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are lovely and there's a good choice (fruit, cereal, cooked and pastries). We had a lovely lunch there this time (for the first time) and it was delicious! However, in my opinion, the whole ‘home from home' feel of the hotel makes it. I have stayed in many hotels, and come back to Judd's Folly time after time! We are already looking forward to our next stay, and our friends said they are going to book independently for weekends in the future too! Thank you for all your hard work, it's appreciated and shows.

"Not a good place to stay"

User 13/09/2020

Started off with being booked into a Family room when we had paid for a superior king room. Was given the excuse that the hotel had a wedding that had been booked a year, was then moved to a superior king room ! Room lovely however the bathroom was filthy - mildew on the walls, a lovely free standing bath that the taps were not fixed properly and leak so you have a dripping sound all night long, a shower curtain that won't go around the bath as the shower head is in the wrong place, the fixing for the shower head is broken so you cut yourself on the sharp screw that protrudes, cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and absolute filth behind the free standing bath (clearly not been cleaned for a long time) and this during a time where the hotel policy is that you must vacate your room for 6 hours if you want it cleaned during your stay (due to covid). Then outside the room (I know its harder to clean an outside area) huge cobwebs that have clearly been there sometime. Will not return !!

Jason Wolverson, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review - I am sorry there were a few issues with your bathroom that you photographed, but that you loved the bedroom, but took no photos of. There was a sight mix up with the room, as you had been given a family room in error, but this was rectified as soon as you made us aware. This was nothing to do with the wedding, apart from the fact you made us aware as the wedding was arriving, and we arranged your move as soon as the guests had been temperature checked in to the building. With regards to the bathroom, we will investigate your comments, had we known at the time, we could have dealt with them, instead of not by finding them out on the website after you have posted and we have no knowledge. You stayed for 2 nights and did not bring this to our attention - COVID rules means the occupied room can not be serviced unless an amount of time is available. This is why we ask you to request room servicing the night prior, or when collecting fresh supplies from reception, when you could have mentioned the cleaning issue. Cobwebs, I am not going to answer to, these can appear within minutes, we are located in 5 acres of countryside and when guests leave doors open these do occur. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay.

"Nice 5 Day Break"

Robwalkrail, Derby, United Kingdom 11/09/2020

We booked this hotel a few days before our short break to Kent having had our trip abroad cancelled. Two adults and a 17 year old. This is a nice hotel on the edge of Faversham and I have to say, what a nice place it is and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Our room was a family room with a double and single bed. The bathroom was a shower rather than a bath but this is what we prefer anyway. The room was very clean but it should be noted that these are not cleaned during the stay due to Covid. The room had a TV, Wifi and tea making facilities. The breakfast was great - had a full English one day but plenty of other choice also such as cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc. During the five night stay, we also had two evening meals in the hotel which again were very good. Would definately recommend and would stay there again if I was in the area. Keep up the good work Judds Folly.

Jason Wolverson, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Many thanks for your review - its really good to hear you you enjoyed your stay and appreciate all the effort that is going into making your stay as relaxing as possible even with a few changes and procedures we have had to put in for the Pandemi. Your comments on cleanliness and staff are very much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you again soon

We stayed at this hotel for two nights when we had a family funeral at the end of august. The room was a family room- lovely and clean and setting really pretty and idyllic. Donna, who worked on reception and in the restaurant was simply brilliant, so helpful and accommodating to myself and my partner and son (arranging for us to have a room we loved, getting us in quick for early dinner, two nights in a row) and my family members checking in later on the second evening after the funeral (sandwiches when the kitchen was closing) and space in the lounge to chat. The burgers in the restaurant were yummy, best I've eaten in a long time and the breakfast each morning had a great selection as well as a fab full English. Value for money and definitely worth a visit!

"Good stay!"

A lovely, understated hotel with friendly and helpful staff. They clearly have a talented chef and the restaurant is well worth a visit! Good Covid safety compliance in place. Would definitely recommend!

66laurad66, Essex, United Kingdom 26/08/2020

Just returned from a great stay at Judds Folly. The room was ready early and check in was quick. Parked right outside our room which was very helpful. A great deal of thought has gone into covid safety especially in eating areas making meal times enjoyable. Breakfast was superb and a lovely selection on offer. Our room was small for 2 adults and a child and I would have liked a bath too instead of just a shower but it was fine for a short stay. It was a bonus to have French doors leading to ourside area with table and chairs to sit and admire the wonderful view. Check out was easy & quick. Jason, Chris and the team were so helpful and friendly would definitely return

Had a very emjoyable short stay at Judds Folly. Staff are all very welcoming and had plenty of time for their guests - nothing was too much trouble. Covid rules have been dealt with in a very thoughtful way so that the experience felt almost normal. Beautiful surroundings. Rooms were small for two adults and one child, but were ok for a short stay. Must mention the breakfast, was really delicious!

rhellis, Epsom, United Kingdom 25/08/2020

Came for a late booked weekend away and we were impressed by the friendly staff as well as the clean and comfortable room. Has the feel of a family run hotel here they really care about the guests. Would recommend for anyone wanting a break in the Kent countryside

"A Family Lunch, An Overnight Stay and Two Large Dogs"

Bossmatt, Ascot, United Kingdom 23/08/2020

We attended a long and boozy recent Saturdaylunch with family in Faversham and my wife and I and our two rather large Greyhounds needed a room for the night before driving back home the following day. All the town centre hotels have a bad doggy policy but Judd's Folly have a good doggy policy with just a very reasonable £3 per room room supplement. There is a very pleasant casual atmosphere at JF with very personable and helpful staff. This is a very honest hotel. With all the obligatory Covid rules and guidelines everywhere, they really have tried to keep a business as usual feeling to the place but as with everything right now, nothing is normal. I particularly liked the written explanation at reception regarding bar and food times as being "ish". Management, you have our greatest sympathy and you're doing a great job! In the evening we had a couple of drinks sitting in the garden and then a light meal inside as it was getting chilly. Great service with good humour from 'behind the screens' and a first class Club Sandwhich! We had a room on the ground floor (It looks like all the rooms are on the ground floor) with an entrance from its own little decked and fenced patio area which, incidentally, we were able to park right in front of. The room was well decorated and modern as was the bathroom. All facilities included (I think I even saw an iron?). Of note was the most enormous (and very comfortable) bed which the Greyhounds absolutely LOVED. The bed was actually so big that there wasn't a lot of room left for the dogs beds - no matter, that really was our problem and we did manage - much to their disgust at being (eventually) turfed off! The full English was very well executed and enjoyed in the garden and checkout with all the add ons was ridiculously good value for money! Verdict - Would love to return! (perhaps without the hounds).

Another great stay in Ospringe. Second time being in hotel staff brilliant breakfast was great and well situated for my needs. I think I could honestly stay beers on every visit to Faversham. I arrived early after a 4 hour drive and had room cleaned for me so could relax early before going out. Youv3 got my vote thank you 10/10

Carriecomments, Kent, United Kingdom 18/08/2020

Took my friend here for her birthday weekend. They should currently not be open due to diminished standards across the board. Check-in took over 15mins, they couldn't find the couple in front of us booking. We were kept outside and then a torrential downpour soaked us. No apologies or thanks for waiting. No welcome at all in fact. Temperature was taken with a digital reader. There were signs all over the hotel regarding Covid and to be kind to their staff due to only 4 staff working at a time. On our way to the room there was heavy rain water coming in via a working light fitting in the hallway. Very dangerous. Room number 35, supposedly a superior twin room. Large room but awkwardly laid out. The room was not clean. After all the Covid warning posters and our temperatures being checked, there were toenails on the carpet and hairs of different colours on the carpet and in the bathroom. It was disgusting. Loo roll holder fell off in my hand and the lights in shower weren't working. The smell from the toilet was vile and the shower unit needed a good cleaning. I felt dirtier coming out of the shower than going in. Everything reported to the management immediately, no apologies. The man merely mentioned that they had nothing but compliments from other guests. My friend suggested they move us to a new room but that was a no. She then suggested that they should at least offer us a drink while our room was being recleaned by a very disgruntled member of staff. He obliged and we received a drink in the bar. The cleanliness of the bar didn't fill us with confidence as the whole time we sat there, there was no wiping down taking place or glasses being removed from the tables. I suggested to my friend at that point that we should leave. She suggested that we should check the room and see how we feel. The room was cleaned although not to a high standard, but the toenails were gone. We were complimented a bottle of wine begrudgingly by the same disgruntled member of staff. I am appalled at the level of cleanliness and of customer service this hotel is offering. They simply should not be open. Smaller, privately run hotels are getting this return to normality right, why can't Judd Folly's? I begrudgingly paid the £143 for the two nights stay. I will never return and I will never recommend this hotel.

Jason Wolverson, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your comments. Not to be unexpected from you as you were quite rude on departure. I am sorry it rained, as much as I would like to govern the skies, it is not in my ability. It was the heaviest rainfall we have had for many years, we were not expecting the roof to leak like it did, but it was made safe as soon as reported. As it says on all out websites the hotel not being fully open. I am not going to speak about staff, our staff work hard to please customers and that is why we always score high in those areas. The signs do NOT read 4 staff at any time, it is 4 customers at any time. This is one of the issues, the hotel business across the country has not returned to a normal, which you were obviously expecting. We did apologies for the room and as you said it was dealt with. Your friend said, I expect a drink to make us feel better, yes begrudgingly it was given, but we like the chance to offer, instead of being demanded on, then when a bottle of wine was taken to your room, you snatched it out of the staffs hand, without even a thank you. We do get things wrong on occasions and we deal with them accordingly. I will back up the fact that we do have more favourable comments on our Covid 19 policy, so we will continue running as we are. I really think that you started of on a bad note and it just ran along for the whole stay. We have stayed open for the whole of the panademic to keep our family business afloat, we apologise for the issues you had. I checked you out on the morning, knew the complaint was coming, so it was not to be unexpected, some guests you can read before they arrive and unfortunately you were one one them. I hindsight it would have better if you left, but I am sure you will find accommodation more to your liking elsewhere. Wishing you all the best for the future and stay safe.

Wonderful staff and lovely rural location. I upgraded to a garden courtyard room which was superb. Perfect base for running/ biking and days out in Whitstable, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. Nothing was too much to trouble. Thank you to Jason and his team for a very relaxing 5 days. Special thanks to lovely Paul for fixing the temporary issue with the shower.

This is quite a quirky hotel set in a stunning location. The rooms are based around a lovely courtyard and was very clean and comfortable. We were able to park immediately outside our room. The bar area is very comfortable and prices reasonable for hotel. The breakfast was very good and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would fully recommend this hotel

First of all I would like to thank the staff at Judd's folly for all the hard work for my now wife's and my wedding. The hotel is spectacular, set in beautiful scenery and so well decorated! From the outset Jason and his team are nothing but helpful and nothing is too small or big! The attention to detail was something spectacular even with a very fussy bride. The food was fantastic from a very good catering team which could cater for even the fussy of people! The rooms are very reasonable priced, fantastic and very comfortable. The staff are so cheerful even after a long day! All I can say is thank you from both of us! Samantha and Darryl

Judds Folly hotel is set far back from the main road in beautiful countryside. The room clean and well appointed and contained the following items. A TV, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, mineral water and biscuits, an iron and ironing board, a heated shower rail and a bible. Sadly the iron wasn't that good.The shower, however, was excellent. The main feature of the room was the king size bed. It was very impressive indeed. The hotel has free, fast wifi and is dog friendly.The staff were absolutely top notch. The included breakfast were delicious and the one evening meal we ate at the hotel was also excellent. The biscuit situation was interesting. We stayed for five nights. On the first and second nights there were Border Biscuits, on the third and fourth nights there were Biscoff biscuits and on the fifth night there were no biscuits. Biscuits aside, however, this is an luxurious and well run hotel and is an excellent place to stay.

Held my Sons and Daughter in Laws wedding here on Thursday. Absolutely perfect. All the staff so attentive and nothing but praise for the food and service. The brides and grooms room was lovely and they could access from the rear. Our room was also great. Only word of caution be aware there are lots of stairs. But there are rooms available without. However our friends had a disabled access room and reported it also was excellent and again staff were so helpful. The reception room looked lovely again they were so helpful. We supplied table decorations which again staff put out. Our numbers were small 40/80 and it worked brilliantly disco supplied by the hotel. Couldn't recommend more. Plan to return for a meal and afternoon tea in the future

We had our wedding here on Friday 14th and what can I say, it was amazing. They made everything look amazing and they took all the stress out of the wedding. My wedding was defently outstanding value, the food was amazing. I couldn't have been happier with the entire wedding and it will defently be a wedding I'll remember. I can't thank Jason, Jan, Gill and everyone else for all they did. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, they all helped towards the day being perfect and running smoothly. All of my guests were saying how great the wedding, food and the rooms were and they'll all be coming back. I'd definitely recommend The Judd's Folly to anyone whether it be for a wedding, a night away or a meal.

Our son will be getting married in the area next year so we visited the wedding venue and as we had also made a block booking at Judd's Folly we booked Sunday lunch there so that we could have a look at the accommodation. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and I think the lady was called Jan who showed us round and opened up several rooms so that we could get a good idea of what was available. Lunch was wonderful and all requests such as extra gravy etc were willingly supplied. There was a lovely friendly feel to the place and it's set in beautiful surroundings. The visit put our minds at rest and we know that we and our guests will be well looked after. Just need good weather in July now!

My now wife stayed at the hotel the evening before and has a meal which she said was really nice. Nothing was too much trouble, jason and jan really pulled out all the stops to make sure our day ran smoothly. The room was set up beautifully, the food was great and the rest of the team be it at the bar or at breakfast the next morning were so friendly and welcoming. Thank you so much for making our day a special and memorable one! We will be coming back soon for a meal and we look forward to seeing you all again!.

Val9401, Maidstone, United Kingdom 02/10/2019

Spent 3 nights here with my elderly mum. We had separate rooms booked, and mum was allocated a ground floor room with a walk in shower and I had a room with a bath as requested. We had a lovely welcome when we checked in, and were shown to our respective rooms that were close to each other. King size beds, well appointed and spotless. We had booked on a dinner, B&B basis, and the food was superb. A great dinner menu, I had the pork belly on the first night, and it was probably one of the best I'd had, not too fatty, and plenty of meat, all with fresh veg. I opted for the liver and bacon the next night, and was not disappointed. Very generous portions, and piping hot. Breakfast had the usual choices, plenty of cereals and fresh fruits, and a very good choice of a cooked breakfast to follow. All the staff were chatty, smiling, and so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.Sorry, I don't know all the names of the staff, but we thank you all for making us so welcome. I had a couple of maintenance issues with my room in as much as a side table lamp didn't work, and the taps on he bath kept dripping, but both these faults were rectified asap, and there is even a maintenance sheet in the room to fill out if you do discover a problem. There is a lovely bar area and lounge as well as the large dining area. We expressed interest in holding a future function at the hotel, and were shown around by the lovely Chris, who also cooks a mean breakfast by the way! He really looked after us, showing us the facilities, and Jason the owner went through our options and we were so impressed that we booked up there and then for a future family event. The hotel is ideally situated for visiting the Kent countryside, or coast, there is ample parking and the hotel is in stunning grounds. Jason and his team are working hard on further refurbishments to constantly improve the hotel decor but whatever work is going on did not interfere with the day to day running of the hotel and as guests we were not aware of any disruptions and were not inconvenienced in any way. We had a fantastic stay, and plan to return in the spring we enjoyed it so much. I had the last laugh though, mum bought 6 sausages and 6 free range eggs from the hotel when we left, only when I dropped her home, I forgot they were in the boot, so now I've got them! Thank you everyone, you made our stay so memorable, looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Stayed for one night for wedding in town. Was able to check in early, and even better, the room was ready (had been warned it might not be, which wasn't a problem). Room was comfortable, nice big bed, large TV (yippee), all clean. Plenty of tea and coffee stuff and a bottle of water. Slept well, and breakfast was lovely, the sausages were excellent. Hotel is in a lovely location and the rates seem very reasonable. Would happily stay again.

I stayed here over the weekend with 11 other friends as we were attending a wedding in Faversham, what a wonderful stay we had. The hotel is very near to the town with lovely views and ample parking. When I checked in I was politely greeted by Darcy who was so helpful as there had been a query with my booking, she quickly resolved this and gave me a coffee whilst I waited, I was then shown to my room by the manager who was equally as helpful and kind, the room was very clean, nice comfy bed, great pillows, fantastic shower, great tv, iron, tea & coffee making facilities, I've stayed in many a 4 star hotel that does not give this quality! When we returned from the wedding we bought a drink at a very well stocked bar, lovely staff and although they were closing for the night nothing was too much trouble. I had a very good nights sleep, woke up feeling refreshed! Again love the pillows! We went for breakfast, buffet style with so much to offer from cereal, fruit, lots of different breads, fresh coffee, juices and lovely cooked breakfast, So much choice, love the sausages, for those who are lactose intolerant or gluten intolerant there was a choice. I will definitely go back, friendly staff, lovely rooms and great food, keep up the good work! I'll definitely be back! Thank you x

"Dissapointing room"

Goodstone64, London, United Kingdom 06/09/2019

Forth year running we have stayed at this hotel for the hop festival weekend. The rooms have previously been average but generally in need of refurbishment. This year we were put in Fir Cottage, not the room that had been booked for us. The strong smell of damp was immediately noticeable in the lounge/kitchen area, plus a large stain on the ceiling. There was spilt congealed milk in the fridge plus the remains of nan bread. The bathroom mirror was covered in toothpaste splashes. At various times over the weekend a loud persistent buzzing noise occurred. We believe it was the water heater. It woke us at 6.30am and was still going when we returned from breakfast. I was told there was no other room available for us to move into. Staff were very helpful and the included breakfast was good. On checkout I did raise the issues again and was given a small discount and was advised the owner would contact me. Five days later I am still waiting to hear.

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. You were advised that I was away on holiday until 9th September, so I would not reply within 5 days as you left on 2nd September. Please be advised you did book a cottage, to keep your price down as you wanted all 4 to be in the same cottage and as you were a regular you already received a reduced price. The cottage has been examined and there was a leak of water in the kitchen, which has been rectified. We only took over the cottages in June this year and work is needed on some of them to bring them up to the hotel standard of rooms, but they are at reduced prices to compensate for this. You were also given a discount of 50% on your last night, although we could have moved you as we did have alternative accommodation available. As you have been for the past 4 years you have previously been happy with your rooms otherwise you would have not kept returning. Obviously next year you will be looking for somewhere else to stay which I totally appreciate, so I wish you all the best in finding alternative accommodation.

We arrived Saturday for the faversham hop festival and were met by a lovely lady in reception who was very accommodating of our needs and like to thank you. We were in room 21 which was a great little room overlooking the courtyard. Be aware not ideal for people who have restricted movement as 2 flights of narrow stairs to get to the room. That been said I would ask for this room again as it suited our needs. We would definitely return and would like to thank all staff. We only ate in the restaurant once and had chicken tikka masala and lasagna which both were lovely. We did actually declined breakfast as we were told it would cost £14.95 each a little overpriced I think. Easy enough walk into faversham town of around 1.8 miles and only took around 35 minutes ideal for hop festival and we hopefully shall return.

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear guest. Thank you so much for your positive comments it great to hear you enjoyed yourself at the hotel over the hop festival and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

"Great hotel to discover Kent and for a side-trip to London"

rplass, Karlstadt, Germany 19/08/2019

The place is in a quiet location just outside of Faversham, it is ideally located for tours in Kent and for a trip to London, as there is a direct train which takes you to London St. Pancras or Victoria in just over an hour. When you travel off-peak the tickets are very reasonable. The hotel itself is well-kept, only the shower was hard to figure out how it works.

"Disappointing "

RAD86travels, Solihull, United Kingdom 09/08/2019

For such a beautiful setting I was disappointed with the room. An un-mopped bathroom floor, a spider and its cobweb in the shower and an unclean basin just made it feel no one had stayed in there or cleaned it in a good while. It was a suite for 2, but only one towel, one water and one pack of biscuits...for the price of the room I didnt expect to have to share a towel. The fan was a nice touch especially when it's been so warm, and the wine was an extra I hadn't expected. But I'd trade that in for a quick clean before we came!

"Accessibility"

khill759864, Farnham, United Kingdom 09/08/2019

Felt a little dated and run down, but clean and comfortable, with friendly, helpful staff, and good food and a lovely setting (and bed!) Only problem was accessibility for me and my manual wheelchair. I had been assured that the room I booked was accessible, but it patently wasn't, from the step up to it, to the small bathroom that my wheelchair couldn't squeeze into. I managed with help, but it was undignified and difficult, and potentially dangerous. I don't like to complain, but in this case I believe it is justified.

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest I am pleased you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel and found the staff, food and cleanliness good. Although I understand your comment on the accessibility, (I am not sure why your manual wheelchair does not fit into the bathroom when it has been used as a manual wheelchair users for the past 8 years), which I have already written to you on a different review to clarify that the staff had not picked up your details ,meaning that the ramp and shower seat which we did have but they forgot to put in the room for which I apologised, I feel that you comments on being dated and run down are quite offensive. We are privately run hotel set in a mix of building from 1680s to 1980s we are not ultra modern as that would not fit in with the surrounding or building in the slightest. Everyone's taste is different and we will never be a new modern place, but we do offer all the modern facilities required nowadays We have noted your comments and will look into additional aids for disabilities.

Stayed here overnight. Had a courtyard room next to reception. Ate lunch of sandwiches, salad and crisps on arrival, very nice. Hotel booked us a taxi into faversham. Breakfast was very good value and very good food. Rooms were clean with tea, coffee and water facilities in room. Reasonably comfortable bed but didn't have a brilliant sleep due to an inconsiderate neighbour who left tv on quite loud for most of the night. We would use this hotel again.

"Ideal out of town retreat"

rturne314803, Manchester, United Kingdom 29/07/2019

We were a family of four staying for two nights whilst attending a family funeral, and Judds Folly turned out to be an ideal choice for the occasion, situated in private grounds on the outskirts of town. The staff were very nice, and very helpful The rooms were clean, and comfortable, although my single bed had a twanging spring when I turned over, which was not a problem. I cannot comment about the food, as we met other family members and friends in town where we ate. All in all, a nice clean hotel in a nice country setting, which was ideal for our purpose.

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Many thanks for your review, I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and many thanks for the comments on the staff, which is always appreciated. Look forward to welcoming you all again under maybe better circumstances.

Lucy M, Manchester, United Kingdom 27/07/2019

I stayed at Judd's Folly for a couple of nights with family. I had booked a family room but we were given an entire two bedroom cottage which was a welcome surprise. The rooms were clean and the bed's comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. They even provided my 5 year old with a quick lunch when we hadn't realised lunch needs to be booked in advance. As a minor point the toiletries provided were very scant for our stay (one toilet roll for 3 people for 2 nights and one tiny tube of shampoo, shower gel etc and no hand soap so we had to use the shampoo to wash our hands!) Luckily we had brought some of our own. We ate one evening meal at the restaurant. My meal was lovely but my son had an inedible steak. They were happy to change it for a different meal but unfortunately he wasn't keen on it so he ended up with very little dinner and it meant we were there for hours. The setting is beautiful. My youngest appreciated the small playground on site and I thought this was a nice touch. Over all though this was a very pleasant place to stay.

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest - Thank you for your review, I am pleased you overall enjoyed your stay at the hotel. I am sorry about your steak, this was picked up by the staff and chef and agree it was very tough, we have been in contact with the suppliers concerning this. With regards to toiletries in rooms, we have been putting the same size and amount of toiletries in the rooms for the past 9 years that we have owned the hotel, without any issue, however in the past 2 weeks, we have a couple of comments along the same lines, so we will endeavour to source a larger size. Many thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again in the future.

"Terrible House Keeping"

User 26/07/2019

It was a one night stay over and all that I expected was a little cleanliness which it didn't have. The bathroom was filthy. House keeping had squirted the blue stuff around the toilet bowl, failing to remove the faeces from the toilet seat and bowl. I'll leave it to your imagination what the shower cubicle was like ! Had laid on top of the bed for a while before going out for dinner so initially thought that's why the bed linen didn't seem fresh when getting into bed later, In hindsight I don't think the bed linen was fresh and don't want to mention that again because it makes me want to scratch. A really nice location. There was a reasonable varied choice for breakfast, it was ok if you don't mind tinned mushrooms, very wet scrambled egg, murdered fried egg and bacon. Was grateful for cereal and yoghurt. Would I use the place again ? Definitely not !

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest I have made contact with you privately and await your reply on the name of the booking and date of your stay. Once I have received this, I will respond accordingly. But I can assure you that ALL of our bedding is fresh Egyptian Cotton changed for every guest stay. We DO NOT Use Tinned Mushrooms and our eggs and bacon are cooked from scratch, throughout the morning. If the Toilet had been so bad, why did you not report it? I await you communication Hotel Owner

"A Country Retreat"

alikavner, Coventry, United Kingdom 19/06/2019

After a fraught journey in torrential rain we arrived at reception only to find they had no evidence of our reservation( Booked with Booking.com ) This was frustrating as we were already late .We were required to wait at Reception for around 15 mins while the receptionist read out a list of guests staying and telling us we were not booked . Maybe GDPR has not reached this establishment. A complimentary drink would have gone some way to easing this while we were waiting. Accommodation suited to our needs was available however . We had booked into a two bed cottage and it was clean ,comfortable and well equipped. The main light in the double bedroom was not working. Spare bulbs were found but sadly this did not resolve this. I was pleased to see a plug socket adjacent to a mirror which is a necessity for most women.Unfortunately the mirror was positioned beside the wardrobe and hence the light was obliterated which is a shame. We had a really comfortable nights sleep with nice bed linen and towels provided were large and fluffy . Breakfast at 20% discount was plentiful and delicious especially the eggs and sausages .

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest. Thank you for review, I am overall pleased that your stay was good, but upset that on your arrival you were not dealt with as smoothly as the rest of our guests. We are fully aware, particularly on reception, about GDPR, and I am really quite sure that the receptionist did not read out over 40 names to you. Sometimes guests are booked under other names and with wrong spellings and in some cases spoken differently to how they are written, its very difficult for the receptionist to deal with on occassions. The cottages we have only just taken over as part of the hotel on 4th June and due to this they are not on our usual booking system programme and this will not occur until beginning of July. This may have been the issue and I can only apologise for this. There are a couple of issues that are arising from the cottages, which are being looked at, but we are not aware of these issues at reception that you mentioned, so will investigate these now. I am pleased that you did enjoy your stay and that the weather was much better in the following few days. Thanks again for your comments

User 10/06/2019

The hotel room that I was allocated (although booking well in advance) was not fit for purpose. It was damp, smelly, in a terrible state of repair eg paint and plaster peeling from walls, dirty, cobwebs throughout. It took me approaching the hotel reception no less than 4 times to achieve a change of room as they proclaimed that they were fully booked. Although trip advisor informed me otherwise!

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest Well you really have it in for us dont you. Second review on 2 separate sites. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, but that room IS completely fit for purpose as it has been in use for many weeks before your stay and it was used by other guests the night we moved you to the other room with NO ISSUES. It may have taken you 4 attempts to get moved on the 2nd night, (Not that I think that is correct at all) but you asked on your first night and were told we could not move you as we were fully booked - there were NO ROOMS AVAILABLE ON ANY WEBSITES - AND WE DO NOT USE TRIP ADVISOR AS A BOOKING COMPANY. However we could on the second night - which we did, and low and behold you did not review the other room you had. It was brought to my attention by the housekeeper how rude your were, which I had dealt with previously at reception, but my staff do not have to take that from anyone. I wish now when you said you were leaving that I had not bothered to find you an alternative room, I should have just let you go and although you probably would still have written a bad review, at least we would have had a pleasant guest on the second evening. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, but my reviews from the weekend have been all positive and yours seems to be the only negative. Odd that ??? Anyone if your coming back to the area, I hope you find other accommodation for yourself, as you would not be welcome back here.

SharonDavis2, Staffordshire 07/06/2019

Stayed at Judd's Folly while visiting family. It's a bit isolated but quiet. Checked in early which wasn't a problem, the reservation seemed to be confused even though I'd received a phone call from the hotel to clarify my booking. Room 30 was pleasant enough, beds very comfy but the large shower head just wasn't suitable for the shower space in my opinion. The tea/coffee tray was in the bottom of the wardrobe. There was a Wedding going on so the bar was very busy but ok. Didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on food. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

This was an absolute gem of a hotel. Mixture of rooms from traditional to motel style. Rooms very comfortable and the setting is wonderful.

I held my 60th Birthday celebrations on Sunday 12th May. We had a three course Sunday lunch which was wonderful, plentiful and hot, (compliments to the chef) served by attentive staff. The tables looked lovely and everyone commented on how nice a venue it was. The sun shone and it was great that we could step outside from a private bar area to enjoy time with the family. Would highly recommend Judd's Folly for any event and we will be back. Thank you Jan and all the staff for looking after us so well.

I cannot fault the Judd's Folly Hotel for making a family celebration a very special occasion. Staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I have severe mobility problems, but this was no problem. The food, we had a barbeque, was delicious and plenty enough to go round our hundred plus guests. We returned the following morning to join some of our friends, who had stayed overnight, for breakfast which was amazingly good. A great variety of food and very reasonably priced. Thank you Judd's Folly Hotel for making our evening special and memorable.

"Crossed wires?"

User 11/05/2019

After checking in as a group the receptionist asked if we would like a packed lunch rather than a breakfast as we were leaving early the following morning. This was a nice thought which we presumed was an additional curtious gesture by the hotel. Packed lunches were brought out to us 20 minutes later. However on returning back to reception to greet a friend we were told that we weren't on a bed and breakfast rate and had to pay £8.95 this was a bit much for a sandwich,bottle of water, crisp and yogurt, coupled with our surprise as nobody alerted us to the cost before hand. The manager stepped forward in an abrupt manner and realising the mistake made a reduced offer of £5, while my colleagues and I were discussing the offer I had placed 2 bags on the reception however not wanting to wait he snatched them out of my hand and walked away. We were all disgusted at what occurred and handed them all back. later at 10pm we went to discuss the matter and unfortunately were told there was crossed wires and unfortunately that's how it is. we asked if we could speak with the manager/owner to clear the situation up unfortunately we were told he's not here and had left for the night earlier that evening however 10 minutes later he was seen in reception thus we must assume we were miss led by the receptionist. This whole situation was a mistake by the receptionists as friends of ours had paid a lesser amount and were on a bed and breakfast rate and so were offered a packed lunch. Which was also mistakenly given to us by the staff but then in hindsight were asked to pay. The customer service is very poor and below what would be expected in a reasonable situation as this was, mistakes made by the staff were quickly apportioned to us or regarded as crossed wires, there were no crossed wires on our part. Very disappointing! Throughout we were curtious and polite despite the lack of understanding of our situation created by the staff and manager/owner

Jason W, Owner at Judd's Folly Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest. Thank your for your review. I was already aware of the situation as I had been on duty when the guests who booked direct checked in on Bed and Breakfast and I offered them the alternative to breakfast as they were leaving early. There was no issue with these guests. Your booking was made on a room only basis through booking.com As with all our guests on check in who book on room only they are offered a breakfast if they wished to add it to their accounts. You obviously(Persumed) it would be free. This is where your CROSSED WIRES comes into it. When you booked the rooms it clearly says ROOM ONLY. The packed lunches were prepared and you accepted them and you were very happy. Its only when the receptionist added to your accounts did you then say you though it was bed and breakfast. You then brought all the packed lunches back and said well we do not want them then. As a gesture of goodwill it was myself who offered them at £5.00 each to receive an aggressive message shouted from the other side of reception, Yes I did pick them up and remove them as neither myself or my staff should be spoke to in that manner. You were not mislead by the receptionist later in the evening, I had finished duty that night, but I can watch the hotel on CCTV cameras and saw all 6 of you stood at reception speaking to the receptionist on duty and I came round to see that all was ok, to be explained that you had accepted it was a crossed wires. albeit a few sarcastic comments thrown in from one of your party. If you had seen me then I would of quite happily spoken to you. As you have stated the other guest did book direct and had breakfast included therefore they were offered an alternative to breakfast. You were ROOM ONLY. These guests very very pleasant and we would happily welcome them back. Its always easy to blame the staff and management at the hotel, but there must be some responsibility that you have to take. Our customer service is always highly praised, so I am suprised that the staff did not deal with your issue in their normal professional manner. However, maybe there are a few issues that also added to packed lunch senario. 1) You parked your cars in a NO PARKING Signed Area and had to be asked to move them 2) YOUR Credit card was declined, so we had to contact Booking.com to get a new one, which was never received 3) You had to be asked to turn your reeving car engines of at 5.45am in the morning as it was disturbing other guests. It has already been reported to booking.com on these issues on your behaviour as a group. I am sorry that you think everything was everyone else's fault and we already know you will not be returning, so I wish you all the best for future bookings in the hope that you realise what basis you book your rooms on at other hotels.

Food was perfect - vegan and gluten free guests well catered for, we all had a fantastic time. Those of us that stayed the night thought the breakfast was lovely, fresh and full of great choices. Rooms were generous and clean. Dan and I will be back for our 1st anniversary! (Special thanks to Jason and Jan)

Ideal for a one night stay. All the staff made you very welcome. The restaurant was very quiet. The food was okay but could have been improved with a little effort. Some lemon and tartare sauce with the fish platter and some apple sauce with the roast belly pork would have completed the plate. Bedroom in court yard rooms was very comfortable but the internet was not available in the room.

One night stay after travelling from France, we had an interconnecting room. Arrival- we were quite late due to the ferry but this was no issue as Donna on reception checked us in straight away with no bother, we were shown our room and had a drink in the bar, Gill was very accommodating. Rooms- just lovely, exceptionally clean very well presented and spare toiletries and refreshments. We had an outside room which meant we didn't disturb hotel guests coming in late, gorgeous roll top bath in our room. Breakfast- room was busy but we were still seated straight away, plenty of choice hot, cold and continental. Jason (hotel manager) seated us and nothing was to much bother. Breakfast was lovely. Once checking out of our room we sat in the lounge area and encountered Jan another lovely helpful member of staff. Overall- Very pleasant stay with helpful staff aplenty. We would def stay here again in fact next visit is booked!

"Fabulous Afternoon Tea"

Pookies62, Faversham, United Kingdom 26/02/2019

A very good friend of mine bought prosecco afternoon for our group of four as a Christmas present and we took up this lovely idea on a Sunday in February. On arrival we were shown to the rear lounge which we had to ourselves and which was all laid out ready for us and we had the whole lounge to ourselves. Our glasses were filled as soon as we sat down and shortly after the tea arrived. The portions were very generous and we had an assortment of finger sandwiches with sausage rolls, quiche and cheese straws followed by scones with cream and jam and numerous small cakes including mini eclairs and macarons. The waitresses came back frequently to see if we needed anything and our tea pot was filled three times. Coffee was also available. We were not rushed at all and I'm sure we stayed much longer than we should have! Would definitely recommend Judd Folly as the afternoon tea was such good value for money and we will certainly be returning.

Stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our birthdays. Hotel itself is comfortable,clean and welcoming.Stayed in one of the outside rooms with parking directly in front of your room which was great. I use a wheelchair and I have never been anywhere where the staff have gone to so much trouble to make sure we were comfortable,even to setting us up our own table . We had afternoon tea for my birthday and I really appreciated the birthday card on the table ,a lovely touch. Food was very good ,everything fresh and very tasty. We ate in the restaurant,afternoon tea and breakfast and all were excellent. All of the staff were exceptional,very helpful,friendly and first class customer service. They consistently went beyond what was expected. Christopher thank you for all the attention we received from you. A first class stay !
