Shabby chic shouldn't be code for grubby
We booked a 'superior room' and found that paintwork was scuffed and ceiling had filler marks as though decoration was waiting to happen.
Very dusty skirtings and wooden furniture, dust in the bath. The bar restaurant looked nice but because our room was grubby we chose not to eat there. Disappointing.
I Can't Believe The Reviews Here
Before making my booking I read the reviews from previous guests, and they were very favourable, however, my initial thoughts on arrival was that the setting was nice, but on entrance to the room I was a little disappointed, although it seemed okayish.
However, the bathroom didn’t look or feel particularly clean. There were limescale marks all over and a lack of shine to any of the chrome work, mould on the bath sealant , and tiles, as well as some strange marks in the bath, to be honest, I felt the bath needed replacing. In the morning I went to use the kettle only to find this was not only half full with someone else's old water, but it was also filled with horrible powdery limescale and this was apparent on the outside too. BUT, when I went to pour the boing water into the cup, the steam from the back of the lid shot up my hand and burnt me, not seriously, but alarming and a little sore for a while. The kettle needs replacing ASAP before someone has a serious accident. I also felt a warning sign for hot water beside the bath taps to be appropriate as the water from this is a scolding temperature. The management response was to find somewhere else to stay!. Food was okay though.
The White Horse Inn
Stay ok but breakfast for the price was rubbish.

The White Horse Inn
Accommodation was standard.
Couldn't fault the hotel as a whole but unfortunately they lack customer service skills. Seemed blunt and unwelcoming!
The room was a little tired
Good old fashioned homely inn!!!
The White Horse is a great location as a base to visit historic Kent.
The bar and restaurant are top quality and together with the helpful friendly staff our stay was excellent. The rooms are very clean and even though this a very old inn the owners have made the best of the space - maybe some new furniture would improve this even more. We would not hesitate to stay here again - our party of five people all loved it.
Really quaint old inn.
Roaring fire, nice beer and a good looking restaurant (although we had already eaten on route). Very relaxed and friendly feel and very child friendly. Nice room, very well furnished.
Only downsides are that room is on front of inn and road a little noisy. Also room is a little cramped for a family of 4.
Characterful Inn in a pleasant village
We stopped over Xmas eve and Xmas Day.
The White Horse is a characterful Kent Inn offering accommodation as well as dining in the restaurant bar area. The dining experience was very pleasant with a reasonable menu price, good food, reasonable prices and pleasant surroundings, including an open fire. Our room was adequate and warm, but, like so many we see, was spoilt by a lack of some basic maintenance and attention to detail, with (for example) loose shower fittings. a non functioning fan in bathroom (which dripped water) and incredibly ugly wiring to the TV. For these reasons we would recommend the White Horse Inn as a place to eat, but hesitate to recommend it as a place to stay.
