Information for Benenden Hospital Patients

Bressenden is on the same road as Benenden Hospital and two minutes away from it by car. Hospital patients can benefit from special arrangements that are not available via the online booking channels and must contact me directly via the contact form.

To cater for the needs of hospital patients and their partners or hospital staff, I can offer a one-night stay with a £15 discount on the standard room rate. This discounted rate is for bed without breakfast, as the hospital’s excellent restaurant offers cooked breakfasts, hot meals, snacks and beverages. Bressenden provides tea- and coffee-making facilities in the bedroom, and guests may bring snacks to eat in the guest kitchen. If, however, you would like to stay for two nights with breakfast at Bressenden, the normal room rate will apply and you can use the online booking system. I regret that one-night stays at full price with breakfast included are not available.

Note that the special deal for one-night accommodation without breakfast is only available for hospital patients and their partners. If guests have booked for two nights as a precautionary measure and then find that they no longer need to stay for a second night, they will not be charged for their second night, but the £15 discount they would have enjoyed for their first night will now act as a cancellation fee for the unwanted second night.

If you try to use the booking widget to book just one night, your chosen room or night’s accommodation will be shown as sold out or unavailable. This does not necessarily mean that I cannot accommodate you. Please enquire via the contact form.


If you do not have your own transport, you will have to hire a taxi to get to the hospital. Please ensure that you book a taxi well in advance of your stay. This is particularly important for early morning hospital appointments. If you try to book a taxi on a Sunday night to get you to hospital for a 7 a.m. appointment on the next day, you will not succeed. We cannot drive you to the hospital as we are neither licensed nor insured to provide taxi services to paying guests. Although the hospital is nearby, the road is not safe to walk along. (A few taxi services are listed in the Guest information page.)
