Tucked away in its own quiet corner of Kent, situated just on the outskirts of Royal Tunbridge Wells, close to Pembury, this serene hotel is actually built into an old Georgian oasthouse. Furbished with a sensitive eye for blending the modern to the traditional, with superb photo-opportunities, outdoor space and a gorgeous pond, it offers idyllic surroundings for your big day.

The hotel has 84 luxury bedrooms, to which all your wedding guests are entitled at a generous group-rate discount! With a highly-regarded in-house catering team, experienced events coordination and planning outfit to ensure the smooth running of your wedding, and a wide range of cost-effective packages, this venue is more than worthy of your serious consideration.


Converted from an historic Georgian oasthouse, this building certainly has a great deal of history. Oasthouses were used to dry hops before they were added to the beer brewing process, for which purpose indeed this one would have been used too!

Kent is well known for its proliferation of oasthouses, thanks to its ideal soil for cultivating the hops combined with easy access to ample supplies of suitable wood; in fact, the oldest surviving UK example is just down the road from the hotel in Cranbrook.


Parkside Suite

This room, located in the newest extension to the building, is a modern, fresh and bright space with French doors which lead out into its own private courtyard. The Parkside Suite can cater for a minimum of 50 wedding guests and a maximum of 130.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 130 Guests
Formal Reception Capacity - 130 Guests

    We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception here and it was so lovely! We had a fabulous time! The staff were all very helpful and accommodating. Everything we requested was attended to and the day worked out just the way we wanted it to. Many thanks to Sophie, our event manager and Ian who made our day run very smoothly from start to finish. Very happy couple.

    My wife and I got married on Friday 9th Sept and it was amazing! We dealt with Sophie who was in communication the whole way through and made the process very easy and stress free (no matter how many emails/questions I asked). We had Ian on the night of our wedding who was amazing - he even joined us for a cuppa at the end of the night during a small political debate haha! The suite we got was brilliant! All in all we loved having our reception at Mercure and would 100% recommend!

  • Melanie and Andrew - 17/10/2016

    In the run up we dealt with Sophie who was a very helpful advisor in various matters. The day was wonderful and the room decorated beautifully, we had our drinks and canepes in the courtyard area where there was room for younger guests to play. The toast master was excellent and announced guests for our line up brilliantly and tried to keep the day moving well. Our bridal suite was lovely, 2 separate rooms. The venue suited us perfectly as there were rooms for guests to stay in and it was near the church we held our ceremony in. Thank you all at the Mercure for your help and making our day so special.
