Good Hotel Guide Review
Double-moated 13th-century Hever Castle, the childhood home of ill-fated Anne Boleyn, is now home to a sumptuous B&B. Bedrooms are in two Tudor-style Edwardian additions, the Aster and Anne Boleyn wings. Each room blends Tudor-inspired features and comforts fit for a queen: a gold-coloured chaise longue, a four-poster, spoiling toiletries in a decadent bathroom of limestone or marble. Moulded ceilings, grand chimney pieces and rich tapestries heighten the grandeur. Breakfast, a lavish affair, is served in each wing’s own dining room. Residents are granted complimentary open-hours access to the castle and grounds and, after hours, to the peaceful gardens. A beautiful courtyard has wild flower plantings and outdoor furniture.
