About the hotel

The Woolpack Inn is located in the Garden of England Just off the A28 between Ashford and Canterbury is the chocolate box village of Chilham, where you can find a real gem; the 600 year old Woolpack Inn is nestled at the bottom of the hill leading in the shadow of the Norman castle. With its vast oak beams and inglenook fireplaces it offers a glimpse into hospitality of yesteryear. The inn is said to be haunted by the Grey lady, a friendly ghost who wanders the main building.

Visitors can choose to relax in the cosy bar, the restaurant with its glorious bay window and country lane views or the patio courtyard where they will find the olive tree which has been in situ since the inn was built. Parking is not a problem with availability for 25 cars to the rear of the hotel and space enough to accommodate a coach. The Woolpack provides a great stop-over destination being just 30 minutes from the channel tunnel and Ashford International. The Inn boasts a home-cooked menu with many of the ingredients being sourced locally. Fish comes off the boat in the morning and often is on the plate by lunch service. Simple, honest food seems to be the order of the day. Local mushroom sautéed in garlic butter, finished with stilton and cream and presented on a garlic ciabatta, real home-made steak & Spitfire Ale pie, and homemade strawberry shortcake give a hint of the homely fayre on offer. The Woolpack Inn has 14 bedrooms, including two four poster rooms with rugs, roll-top baths and views to match. The double rooms are modestly priced at £60. The room are located in an old stable block, across, garage and the main building and are all tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the Inn. Three have access to a small, private garden area- a great plus for families or an opportunity to just sit and unwind. The family-run Woolpack combines a fantastic location and great hospitality to make a memorable trip, a must on any visit to the South East

An unexpected upgrade to a four poster bed, excellent food served in restaurant, clean and friendly, would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding in every way

If you're lucky enough to find this charming place called Chilham then as you enter the street you will be met by a most marvellous hotel called the Woolpack.

We stayed on Tuesday for one of the best times ever in all of our travelling years, it was so impressive that we returned again and extended our stay on Thursday. We were greeted with great hospitality by a young lady named Isabella who is second to none at her many jobs at the hotel. We enjoyed a few drinks by the fabulous open fire when we arrived. Our room number 5 was simply exquisite, spotlessly clean, full of old original character spacious and extraordinarily comfortable. We dined in the restaurant on our first evening, we were bowled over by the food which was absolutely superb. We could write many pages about the quality, hospitality, surroundings, decor, service, cleanliness, friendliness and comfort of the Woolpack and the enchanting hamlet of Chilham, however we'd like to keep it a secret all for ourselves. Make a point of going there and staying at the Woolpack, you'll be delighted that you did. We'd rate it 10/10 easily ☺
