About

#1 of 9 B&Bs / Inns in Tenterden
Travellers' Choice
Centrally situated on Tenterden’s historic High Street, The White Lion gracefully combines “olde world” charms with a contemporary look and feel. All the ensuite accommodation, which includes both Family and Superior rooms, has been delightfully appointed to provide guests with flat screen TVs with Freeview digital channels, hairdryers, Nespresso coffee machine, towelling robes and luxurious beds and bed linen. The pub remains the heart and soul of the White Lion and we regularly feature live music in the bar at weekends. The buzzing environment combined with an ever-changing fresh food offer, allows guests to enjoy a meal from the same menu in our bar or for more of an occasion dine in our restaurant. An expansive range of real ales and wines, served in the bar, are selected from our local vineyard and brewery and also from around the world. A large terrace area, popular with both diners and drinkers alike, spills out onto the bustling High Street

What a lovely hotel! Everything about our stay was lovely. The staff were welcoming, the room was immaculately clean and decorated beautifully. And the finishing touches like bottled water in the rooms, HUGE fluffy towels and White Company toiletries really made our short stay feel so indulgent 😊

We stayed here as it was close to the venue for a family wedding. Lovely hotel - rooms were comfortable and clean (we had a lovely double, our daughter a comfortable twin). Rooms were well equipped and well stocked with water (still and sparkling) tea and even a nespresso machine and capsules. Staff were absolutely lovely and very accommodating throughout our stay (for instance, making sure we could sit near other family members for breakfast. Breakfast was good - lots to choose from and well prepared. Poached eggs were a little overdone for my taste. Only minor faults I could find were that the room was very warm, even with the fan provided and I would have liked some biscuits in the room but that’s all. It was a lovely location - we enjoyed exploring the town too.

3 of us recently visited the White Lion for a night. Very pleased with the individual rooms as this made a big difference from the standard corporate hotels. Little extras in the bedroom were also much appreciated. Breakfast, cooked to order, was very good and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Spoilt lunch by asking for money before eat. I refused and manager was unanding but male bar staff member said next time you will have to pay before and every drink you have seperately. Wont be coming back again as business puts money before customers!

Good Morning We are sorry to read of your disappointment during your recent visit with us I'm afraid its our policy if you eat or/and drink on the patio area of the hotel, although everyone is served at the table due to the new ways with covid, guests are asked to pay in advance, just the same as when bar service is allowed Regards The Management Team
