Close attention has been paid to decor in every detail.You really are stepping back in time to a more genteel era.

Words fail to describe the experience of staying here. It is a trip back into history by time machine. Wonderful in every way. Queen Victoria herself would have felt completely at home here. Yet Harold provided a faultless service and a wonderful breakfast appropriate to 2016. An experience NOT to be missed.

We spent two nights here and could have spent all our time in the house taking in all the Victoriana, especially the historic phots of Queen Victoria's family. Both days on returning we were treated to tea in the garden with the lightest Victoria sponge we have ever tasted. We had a delectable dinner cooked by Harold on the second... More

This was our second visit to the Victorian B&B and it was still just as amazing as the first time. We stayed in the King Room which was so ornate and luxurious. The roll top bath and stained glass windows in the shower, along with the most polite looking toilet I've ever seen were really special. This was our wedding... More

My wife and I wanted to find some-where to stay in Tunbridge Wells as we were going to a wedding in the area. The "Victorian Bed and Breakfast" has been lovingly restored and refurbished to what is probably now beyond its former glory. My jaw dropped in amazement as we were welcomed into the property by Harold who runs everything... More

We spent two nights in this amazing tribute to Queen Victoria and her family! The decor of this magnificently restored mansion is tasteful, original, elegant, and very comfortable. Breakfast is wonderfully cooked and presented in a beautiful dining room which is true to the period! Afternoon tea is enjoyable, and this activity adds so much to the atmosphere. The garden...

Spent one night here as a couple in early July-16. Beautiful B&B run by a delightful host. Lovely old world charm and service (and big bonus of no TV in rooms!). Centrally located, parking off street. Lovely old world rooms, a step back to simpler times. Nice breakfast with an interesting and engaged group of fellow guests. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently spent four nights in this B & B. We were delighted with everything! The room was a generous size, the bathroom was large with beautiful fixtures and the king size bed was so comfortable with crisp, clean linens.

This property must have been a labour of love for the proprietor and it certainly shows. I could have spent a day just admiring the period details. It's everything you'd want from a B & B ; welcoming, relaxed, clean and a convenient location for the centre of town. All with the added bonus of being an interesting place to... More

Built in 1861, the house in leafy Tunbridge Wells has never been as Victorian as it is now.
