A modern hotel set in the Kent countryside, next to Leeds Castle just 5 miles from Maidstone and 1 hour from London. Over 600 square metres of exhibition space, with a choice of 14 meeting rooms suitable for all kinds of corporate events from conferences, presentations and training sessions, to team building days, board meetings and gala dinners.
The biggest function room is the Heart of Kent Suite, having a private entrance and reception area, a fixed sound system and a dance floor. This room accommodates 600 delegates in theatre style, or 400 for dinner, and can be divided into three smaller rooms - the Southdown, Weald and Northdown, each holding a maximum of 150 people; combine two of these rooms to give capacity for 400 in theatre style and 200 for a banquet. The Hollingbourne also seats 150 guests in theatre style, with Park View being slightly smaller holding 120 in theatre style or 90 for a banquet. TEC West and The County Room are ideal for training sessions, accommodating 50 delegates, and for smaller pow wows, board meetings and think tanks, The Medway seats 30 in theatre style or 24 in boardroom configuration. The Ashford, Bearsted, Canterbury and Rochester all hold a maximum of 20 people, and finally, the TEC North is perfect for very discreet meetings and interviews, seating 6. Some rooms are wheelchair accessible, some are air conditioned, and some have views over the attractive gardens – you may even spot peacocks strolling around!
