Trains and flights out of china

A travel blog entry by carolineandkent

In order to get china visa, the consulate needs to have confirmation as to how we arrive and depart. We have now booked and paid for our flights from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur and the 4 train journeys from Moscow to Beijing. Once visas for Russia and China are in our passports we will book hotels for Russia, Mongolia and China for the 3 of us and then Kent and I will plan our hotels and onward travel from KL to Singapore, Borneo, Brunei and ...

... more than her (3 to me, 1 to her). It was another long walk! From there we came up to Maidstone (County Town of Kent), which is the home of Kent County Constabulary, (as was), but now Kent Police. Managed to get a washing done (eventually), which is great, not so smelly! Had dinner at a nice pub and have come back to the Hotel to sleep, which Andy has managed to do before me ...

London again

A travel blog entry by nicoll

This is the last leg of our holidays and it is very sad! We caught the Eurostar from Calais this morning at 10am, and arrived at 9.57am in London. I love it when the time difference means we arrive before we leave! We are staying at Greenwich because accommodation is at a premium. Apparently there is something on at Wimbledon which has caused an influx of visitors to London. Most inconsiderate! But the apartment is lovely, ...

... Finally I opened the door and apologized for the interruption, but told them I was looking for some information about the church and the burials in the cemetery since I am a descendant of one of the early church members. They asked my name and remarked that that Boorman is a well known name in this area. They gave me the name of a lady who is the local historian and drew a map of the way to her farm a couple of miles away. The didn't have ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Chilston Park Hotel Maidstone

    Nice setting - let down on a few fronts

    from

    We stayed here on Saturday night after a last minute booking on the Friday; as a result we got a great rate (£80per night for the room). The house itself is very beautiful, and the grounds stunning.

    Could do better

    from

    Good value for money (via laterooms ( 90pnpr))

    nice old hotel, nice grounds, but the little things let it down.

    Bedrooms, whilst clean were stuffy no fan (no ac) so windows open..to hear. the background noise from the M20 and the Eurostar.

    Dirty windows in the dining area.

    small room no views from the window.

    Staff clothes were not clean.

    Flowers were dead and in dirty water.

    Food was ok.

    Large plasma tv. was broken, and replacement tv. had no remote control.

    Breakfast finished at 9:30

    The staff were always polite,

    Wonderful Hotel with simply the best service and food!

    from

    My partner and I stayed at Chilston Park through a recomendation of a close friend. We couldnt believe how good the service was. We were greeted inthe car park just like you would in a London 5 star hotel. We felt very special.

    The whole place was lovely and in the evening the drawing room was candle lit which gave a fantastic atmosphere. We dined in the restaurant and can honestly say the food was remarkable as was Sebastian our waiter.

    It will be along time before this memory passes by.

    There was a wedding on at the hotel but it was managed in a way so that it did not effect any other guests.

    Fantastic hotel in wonderful grounds. will stay again.

    Letting the standards slip

    from

    My husband and were married here 3 years ago and it was perfect. Since then we have been back four times. The staff are friendly but the turnover is high except for June who is wounderful and has been there for years and ensures that any private party or wedding runs smoothly and to perfection. On this occasion we booked an overnight stay and specifically booked the main house, which we confirmed two weeks in advance. On arrival they had booked us into the stable block and not the main house. Luckily they had a room that had just been refurbished, only the 42" plasma screen didn't work and the telephone didn't work which we didn't mind too much but wished we'd been told.

    Almost but not quite

    from

    Only classic rooms available which should have been fine if it had been a true 4 star hotel as it proclaims. Small room (which they tried to make look bigger with a large mirror at the foot of the bed) with no air conditioning and no extractor fan in the bathroom meant all mirrors fogged up (including the big mirror in the main room). Rooms were not soundproofed in any way and conversations (and other noises!!!) were clearly heard. Weddings lasting till after midnight and 3am nocturnal activities of our neighbours meant that we didn't get much sleep on the Sat night, so you can imagine we did not make the 10am Sunday breakfast ? what 4 star hotel finishes breakfast service at 10am on a Sunday??

    Great Restaurant

    from

    A great restaurant in a peaceful setting. Prices are very reasonable, the food was tasty and I loved sitting in their drawing room with the open fire after lunch. Good place for a special lunch or dinner.

    Disappointed

    from

    I booked a Superior Four Poster room to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. After reading a review on this site about a 'noisy room' and knowing that my wife is a light sleeper, I requested that we be allocated a quiet room and confirmed this with an e-mail.

    On entering our room I discovered that we had the noisy room and saw the kitchens extractor fans outside our window. I was told that these fans are not switched off at night so we decided to take our money and go home. Avoid Room Treen! and the one below it....

    The staff when we arrived were very helpful but couldn't move us because the hotel was full.

    Lovely, relaxing place

    from

    My boyfriend booked this hotel over the easter bank holiday for us, on a deal of dinner bed and breakfast, and we had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the shared space (lounge etc..) was intimate but big enough to accomodate everyone. They added in loads of nice touches, like bucks fizz on arrival, hot cross buns, and housekeeping even came round with a lindt chocolate bunny!! The real rabbits are very cute and tame- if you're a softee, almost worth a trip just to see them!

    Pre-Christmas chillout!

    from

    I booked four rooms at the hotel for a weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday with 6 of my closest girlfriends. I cannot put into words just how marvellous a weekend we had.

    Better to eat at than stay in?

    from

    Stayed here in June 2004. It is nicely set in countryside with lakes, thus had both rabbits (which were very used to the human company) and ducks and other waterfowl. Lots of car parking space, as this is a popular venue for weddings and there some of these were being celebrated while we were there. They did not really disturb us, but we had asked for a quiet room. On the subject of rooms - some of these are 'themed'. We had 'Safari'. It had two crudely made four-poster beds that were solid to sleep on. The view was across a flat roof to another wall. It was not as good as it should have been for the price. It was reasonably large. I cannot speak too highly of the quality of the food and the care of the restaurant staff. They were good. Down sides - there were too many trays of food left too long in corridors and the room we were in just did not appeal. The latter is a matter of personal taste, though. Good wine list and if the food does not have quite what you wanted it is worth asking. Sunday breakfast was a disappointment after the pleasure of Saturdays, though, with a buffet in a separate room, the fruit juice with ice cubes in it and the food midly warm to cold. Really handy for Leeds Castle and the lovely little garden and house at Stoneacre.
