Leeds Castle Awarded AA Unique B&B of the Year

Leeds Castle in Kent is delighted to have won the title of AA Unique Bed and Breakfast 2017. The award, voted for by AA Inspectors who inspect and rate over 2000 B&Bs throughout the United Kingdom, was presented at the annual AA awards ceremony held at the London Landmark Hotel.

The 16th century Maiden’s Tower at Leeds Castle, offers five stunning bedrooms with breath-taking views of the surrounding tranquil waters of the moat and glorious grounds.

Head of Hospitality at Leeds Castle, Debbie Matthews said:

“ I am delighted that the Maiden’s Tower has won the title of AA Unique Bed and Breakfast of the Year 2017. The team here are passionate about providing a memorable stay to our guests and this accolade is a testament to their cheerful and polite approach. Whether welcoming guests on arrival, serving them breakfast or looking after the cleanliness of their bedrooms.

We could not have asked for more than to know the AA, as a well-beloved institution, recognises our service as being unique and special. This award is the result of a fantastic team effort by our dedicated staff from housekeepers to chefs, waitresses and receptionists, not forgetting the behind the scenes support from gardeners and ground team to maintenance and security.”

Each of the five luxury en-suite Maiden’s Tower bedrooms, named after the medieval queens who owned Leeds Castle, are beautifully decorated in period style with stunning views and opulent bathrooms. An overnight stay at the Maiden’s Tower includes a full English or continental breakfast, made with fresh local produce, served in the 17th Century oak-beamed Fairfax Restaurant the following morning.

Currently, guests who stay on a Sunday night are offered a free hawk walk with the Castle Falconers while midweek guests are offered a complimentary punt around the moat giving them a unique angle to view the historic Castle.
