Rock House: About Us
Due to COVID19 we are currently closed to the public. We are completing our rewire and refurbishment
Depending on government guidelines over the next few weeks we will be open to KeyWorkers and those needing to re-locate because of the virus. Please contact us for further details.
We are a 10 minute walk from Maidstone town centre, Maidstone West train station and a short bus ride from Maidstone Hospital. The bus stops just outside the hotel for easy access.
Rock House is a traditional B&B and has been under new management since March 2015. We are constantly improving the service that we provide our guests and always welcome feedback via our website, e-mail or Trip Advisor. We have a small, friendly team of staff, making Rock House feel like home.
The School Era
The Victorian section of the building was once a school. It was founded in 1918 as the Co-educational Junior Technical School for Boys and the Junior Commercial School for Girls. The school was based at two sites in Maidstone town centre: Faith Street and Tonbridge Road. The school was known in short as the Maidstone Technical School. By the 1950s the school had outgrown these two sites and a new site was found at Oakwood Park, further along on the Tonbridge Road. Rock House has served as a B&B for the last 30 years.
Rock House has a lovely garden behind our breakfast room, sporting a magnificent magnolia tree, the perfect location for reading a book or chatting with friends in the sun. All our roome are equipped with under the counter fridges and there is a communal micrwave located in the dining room. Complimentary tea and coffee is available in all our rooms as well as shower gel, shampoo etc. We also stock a selection of toiletries to cover those forgotten items!
We now offer a selection of home cooked, hot meals in the evening and the option of Sausage or Bacon sandwiches to take away after breakfast.
