Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Rowhill Grange, a 19th-century manor house set within nine acres of peaceful gardens, provides an ideal base for a luxurious country retreat less than an hour from London by car or train.The Times praises this "striking" hotel, with its winding hallways and smart interior, for its "marvellous" spa and "tranquil" surroundings. This 4-star property is also listed in The Times's Cool Hotel Guide and has hosted Hugh Jackman and Jude Law.

Despite its leafy setting in the Kent countryside, Rowhill Grange is 20 miles from central London and was once the home of a former Lord Mayor of London. Explore the countryside of the Garden of England with a trip to Hall Place and gardens, a Grade I-listed Tudor mansion set within 65 acres of landscaped gardens, which is five miles away. Danson House, a restored Georgian property in parkland with gardens and a boating lake, is just over six miles away. Alternatively, the hotel is surrounded by a number of golf courses and Bluewater Shopping Centre and Brands Hatch racing circuit are both 15 minutes' drive away.

Be sure to make time for some relaxation at the impressive, four-bubble-rated spa, which The Good Spa Guide describes as "a little self-contained world of serenity". Listed by The Independent as one of the most soothing spas in the South East, Utopia Spa has 19 treatment rooms, a Jacuzzi, a steam room, a spa pool, a gym and a swimming pool. For gourmet fine dining, head to the 2-AA-Rosette RG's restaurant or, for a more informal setting, to the Elements Bar & Lounge. In warmer weather, the outdoor terrace is ideal for a spot of afternoon tea.

The AA Hotel Guide 2015 praises the hotel's "stylishly and individually decorated" bedrooms. Upgrade to a Luxury Room for more space and a Victorian-style bath tub or power shower.

Other Comments: Daughter unable to use spa or get to use any treatment as she was just under 16 so my wife and daughter had to cancel and return home. Very upsetting for the both.
Brent Aug 12, 2015 Maidstone, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: The Utopia Spa was a great experience but also loved the luxury room. Beautiful furnishings, drapes I wanted to take home and the four poster bed was luxurious.
Janet Aug 02, 2015 London, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Very good staff.
Other Comments: Just too expensive, especially drinks.
A Jul 28, 2015 Chippenham, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Relaxing break. A nice, clean and modern refurbished room.
Other Comments: Gym equipment ok, but very old. Breakfast portions rather small. Spa area small and minimal seating. Adding a service charge to the bar bill left a bad taste and seemed a bit much given the amount of money we had spent.

Other Comments: The luxury room was amazing with its added extras.
Victoria Jul 27, 2015 rainham, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: We loved absolutely everything. We were upgraded to a lovely room, every member of staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The location and setting were ideal. The Hotel was really nice, the food was excellent, and I asked our waiter to send my complements to the Chef. We used the spa and swimming pool. All in all, it was the perfect break for my wife and myself. We will go back again.
Other Comments: The only comment my wife made was that the cheese on the cheeseboard was cold and should have been room temperature to go with her Port.
Kevin Jul 08, 2015 Mayland, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Spacious luxury room. Food in restaurant was excellent and staff were extremely efficient and attentive. Lovely spa on two floors.
Other Comments: Dover room (in annexe) was stiflingly warm with no air-con so needed to keep windows open for some air. Window, although small, let light in during the night as only had shutters fitted and no drapes therefore with too warm environment a good night's sleep was not possible.
