Information for Benenden Hospital Patients

Bressenden is on the same road as Benenden Hospital and two minutes away from it by car. Hospital patients or their partners who want to stay for only night should contact me directly via the contact  page. The booking form will only work for stays of two nights or more.

Breakfast will not be provided to guests who stay for only one night 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.

Note that single-night stays are only available for hospital patients and their partners or carers. This “no breakfast” deal incorporates the right to cancel at any time without penalty. You may also cancel a second night’s stay without incurring cancellation fees if you find that your second night is not needed. However, if you have booked a normal two-night stay with breakfast included and then decide not to stay for the second night, our normal charges will apply as per our standard cancellation policy.

We regret not being able to offer discounted rates to Benenden patients for one-night stays. This is due to the extra workload/laundry involved and the high volume of penalty-free cancellations at short notice, arising from postponed surgical procedures etc.

If you try to use the booking widget and your chosen room or night’s accommodation is 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.)
