About the hotel
"Nestled amongst some of the prettiest villages in Kent, Innkeeper’s Lodge Southborough offers characterful yet convenient accommodation in the Royal Tunbridge Wells area. Dating back to 1728, this beautifully restored lodge is a lovely place to unwind – whether you’re attending a conference at the Camden Centre or simply enjoying the best of what the Garden of England has to offer. Grab a seat on the pub’s terrace and you might even catch a game of cricket on the picturesque Southborough green.
Inside, you’ll find both period charm and modern luxury aplenty. There are 14 comfy rooms a cosy, stylish pub serving fresh, seasonal food and top-drawer drinks. Southborough, a bustling little town with a 75-acre common, is a perfect base for exploring nearby attractions. There’s Groombridge Place, a moated manor house with a secret garden, and museum devoted to the works of Sherlock Holmes creator, Arthur Conan Doyle. Equally worth exploring are the 125 acres of beautiful gardens around Hever Castle, or the English wines at Lamberhurst Vineyards. "

A curate's egg - very good in places
There were 11 of us playing a golf match at nearby Nizels.
The first thing to say is that the Hand & Sceptre is what you are looking for and not Innkeeper's Lodge which is the name of the chain. It is on the left hand side of the road at the entrance to Southborough travelling south. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean as is the whole hotel. The bar/lounge area and restaurant are both nice places to sit and there is an outside terrace. It was the hottest day of the year so this was used. The meals that we all had were good to very good and no complaints. So far , so good but it is by the side of the feed road into Tunbridge Wells and there is some traffic. I was in room 12 on the top floor and although there was triple glazing I could still hear the traffic noise early in the morning. It didn't bother me but it might bother others. The shower was very weak. It was one of those which you stand under and the pressure simply wasn't up to it. I was able to wash rather than shower. There is free wi-fi but the signal is a bit like the water pressure. I gave up. When I paid for the meal, the waitress had to take the card machine to a different part of the room to get a signal. We enjoyed our stay here and the staff were helpful. We paid £67.50 which is a little more than a Premier Inn but the communal areas were much better and the restaurant was hugely better (but more expensive)
