Chilston Park Hotel


Over the years Chilston Park Hotel has been home to eminent politicians, writers, lords and viscounts and today it is renowned as one of the best hotels in Kent.

A classic British country house hotel in Kent with style and charm to spare. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this four red star hotel is its unique styling, enhanced by antiques, some as old as the 17th century manor house.

Set back from tree-lined lanes, the manor house at Chilston Park sits in 22 acres of Kentish parkland, making it a spectacular Ashford wedding venue featuring a two AA Rosette restaurant. The Grade I listed hotel offers a wide variety of unique feature bedrooms, from Mews Classic double rooms to the Manor House Master Suites.

Chilston Park Hotel, the luxury hotel in Kent, offers the ideal setting for a countryside break, a romantic wedding or an inspiring meeting venue close to London. Not only that, Chilston Park's afternoon tea is an unmissable experience when staying in Kent. You can even book a dog friendly break, should you wish to bring your canine companion along too.

Whether you are planning your first visit to Chilston Park Hotel or are one of our many returning guests, we encourage you to treat the house as your own. So relax and enjoy these historic surroundings and allow us to deliver the high standards of guest care we pride ourselves upon.
