The perfect business hotel and stay in Kent’s countryside

Here at the Black Horse in Maidstone, we pride ourselves on quality of service for all.

In our unique semi-rural position we offer a welcome escape from modern day life. And yet we are only a short distance from major transport infrastructure with links far and wide.

This is particularly apt during the week, when we welcome a number of business guests to the Black Horse.

Many business customers have been staying with us for years – with others discovering us more recently. The broad cross-section of guests that we entertain leads to a diverse and buzzing atmosphere when you stay, dine or drink with us. Business guests often mingle with locals or guests on their travels, ramblers and those following routes along the Pilgrims way – creating an energy unique to this hamlet establishment. Not to mention, our bed and breakfast rates are very competitive.

As stated previously, our proximity to major road networks (and mainline trains from Bearsted) provides guests an ideal location to access large swathes of Kent, often using us as a base for the week. Whether you are heading down the M20 to Ashford, Folkestone or the continent on business, or in fact travelling via the M20 London bound towards the M25 and north Kent, the M2 connections are just up the road and access to the weald, mid-Kent and Medway are also within easy reach.

City or town centre accommodation serves its purpose and is ideal for many forms of business travel. But sometimes a change of pace and scenery does everyone the world of good – feedback from guests informs us that parking can be expensive in towns, or it may be that no car parking is provided. Congested traffic in the centre of towns can also start your day with unnecessary stress. Here at the Black Horse Inn, we offer free flexible parking on site, we can’t recall the last time congestion hit the Pilgrims way! As you serenely exit our site towards your desired location through the rolling hills and vineyards that surround us.

The feedback we obtain from our business guests is key and vital to the service that we provide, a previous blog highlighted our EV charging stations that many business guests now require and our desire to make these more accessible particularly in more rural locations.

Whether you visit this area frequently or are passing through we have options to make us your number one supplier of business accommodation.

Regular guests or those looking to host meetings or entertain clients have the option to set up an account with us, get in touch to find out more – 01622 737185 –

A different class of business travel, we look forward to welcoming you to the Black Horse Inn soon.

Our lodge, Primrose was lovely, great shower too. Our evening meal in the restaurant was spot on and waiting staff fantastic. This theme was carried on at breakfast, lovely being an understatement.

We will definitely go there again and recommend to friends.
