Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs), Guest Houses, Inns and Pubs in  KENT

If you travel solo, you know how difficult and annoying it can be. Single supplements, being given the worst table in the restaurant, being made to feel like an outcast just because you're travelling alone - these things can ruin your trip. Fortunately, hospitality providers are wising up and more and more are making efforts to cater for the independent traveller, whether travelling for leisure or business. In this section we list establishments where single travellers are made welcome.
