You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Dental Surgeries

Roseacre Cottage Dental Practice

111 Ashford Rd, Bearsted, Maidstone ME14 4BT, UK – 01622 730548

Roseacre have been looking after my teeth since I was a child. I'm delighted with the results from the braces I had as a teenager. I didn't like it at the time but now as an adult, I have a beautiful smile and no overhang. I really recommend them. They're so kind and make you feel calm when you're anxious about visiting the dentist.

I have recommended this dentist to friends and family living in the area. The staff are kind and caring. In particular the dentist's attention to keeping up to date professionally is outstanding always offering the most up to date effective treatments.

Fresh Dental Care

6 Tolherst Court, Turkey Mill, Maidstone ME14 5SF, UK – 01622 761067

Excellent dentist with helpful and friendly staff. You are put at ease from the moment you walk in to the spacious, comfortable and relaxing waiting room. The surgery itself is also well designed, clean and free of clutter. Dr Spry is very skilled and carried the work out painlessly. He is also very patient, explains everything clearly and gives very helpful advice.

After a self imposed absence it was so reFRESHing to return and be made so welcome. David was excellent and not only made me feel relaxed and comfortable but also took time to explain all my options. After such a long time away it is good to know my dental care is in such good hands and I'm almost looking forward to my next visit!

Dr Christopher J Godsmark

BMI The Somerfield Hospital

63-77 London Rd, Maidstone ME16 0DU, UK – 01622 208000

I had my gallbladder out on Thursday by Dr Haythem Ali. Checked in a 7:30am and by 8:30am had seen Dr Ali, the anaethetist and 2 nurses. I was third in and went to theatre at 10:40am. Surgery went well and I was looked after fantastically for the rest of the day. Could not fault the care atall or the surgery, despite being very nervous I felt so at ease. A special thank you to a lovely nurse who gave me a cuddle and walked me to theatre and stayed with me until I was asleep. Would go here again in a heartbeat. Thank you all.

My husband went in for a total knee replacement operation. We could not fault the experience from seeing the consultant, going for pre-op and then the operation. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and really cared about him. The food was lovely and with free drinks 24/7 for visitors, and free parking we could not fault it.

KIMS Hospital

Newnham Ct Way, Weavering, Maidstone ME14 5FT, UK – 01622 237500

I have to commend the staff of this hospital. I had to have to steroid injections in my spine due to a long-standing issue that has seen me off work for four months. Right from the minute I walked in, to the moment they wheeled me out in a wheelchair (I could walk, but wasn't allowed to), they showed the utmost levels of professionalism (from the anaesthetist moving my operation back because I had sucked a mint in the time I wasn't supposed to have even a lick of water), to the nurses that took me out of my operation, and tended to me afterwards, making sure I was able to leave as quickly as possible, It's all sorted. I love this kind of professionalism. The facilities are excellent, and the staff know exactly what they are doing!

Members of my family said that all the staff they met at the hospital were kind, helpful and friendly. They said that Mr. Simon Ellis was the perfect person with whom to have an appointment - very approachable, gave very clear explanations as to the medical situation, and constantly seemed to be aware of and sensitive to the needs of the patient. Thank you very much.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

St Mary and All Saints Church Boxley

The St, Maidstone ME14, UK – 01634 842508

A wonderfully maintained Norman square towered Church in the heart of Kent.

The beautiful church of St. Mary and All Saints lies on the easterly border of Boxley, with the North Downs as back-drop and surrounding grassed graveyard lending tranquillity to its aspect. The building’s grey stone and flint walls contrast pleasingly with burnt orange coloured tiles while the tower rises up from its central position. Really easy to park up and visit with far reaching views to The Downs and right next door to the pub.

All Saints Church

Mill St, Maidstone ME15 6YE, UK – 01622 843298

Very beautiful place. I really like this small town and with its historical houses and streets. The city offer a wide range of shop bar and restaurants. They also have a nice mall. Very nice place to visit to spend some good time. The cathédrale is quite expensive to visit... During the holiday season it's very crowded. Choose the right time to visit it.

A large and ancient parish church notable for its grand Perpendicular architecture. The churchyard too, overlooking the River Medway, is well worth the stay.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Maidstone

Wildwood

37-41 Earl St, Maidstone ME14 1PF, UK – 01622 755339

Very classy atmosphere, nice seating areas as well as a bar. Menu has variety and food is fresh and tastes lovely. Nice place to go for birthdays, anniversaries or an evening out with family/ friends. Bathrooms are kept very well and are spacious. Only reason for 4 stars is that in several times I have visited, I have been served by the same rude waiter everytime. Others are polite and friendly, and give excellent service, but unfortunately not all of them have interpersonal skills

Really nice ambience, friendly service, great menu and lovely food. All made much better by the 50% off food voucher (valid Mon and Tues only at the time of writing, check the offers section of their website for current deal).

Prezzo

45 Earl St, Maidstone ME14 1PD, UK – 01622 677499

Visited in December 2017: Whilst the waitress was polite and friendly, the service was average. After we ordered our food the waitress asked us once how the food was within 1 minute of being given the plates, so none of the group had had a chance to take a bite (due to us gossiping.) We didn't see anyone until the end of the meal when we asked for the bill, however this wasn't a major issue as the food was fine. Wouldn't have minded if it was busy as this was two weeks before Christmas, but the restaurant was near enough empty.

A restaurant willing to accommodate fussy eaters and large groups. Lovely food and a good atmosphere.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

Pad's Hill, Maidstone ME15 6AT, UK – 01622 687813

Had the Lunch time buffet. Very good value for your money. Pizza was nice and fresh. Plenty of variety in the Salad trays as well.

Absolutely excellent food and service. Always ready to help me as I'm disabled so getting help with an accessible seat and if my daughter isn't with me (very rarely) they'll also help me get my drinks and salad bits as I struggle with the steps. Food is always of excellent standard and the restaurant is always clean.

The grounds are excellent and provide the children with multiple activities and outside adventure. My daughter became very confident and settled in such a short time and now asks to go everyday!

Fledgelings Nursery

Penhurst Cl, Weavering, Maidstone ME14 5BT, UK – 07783 573885

Both my children attended Fledgelings and they were very happy at the nursery. The staff are very friendly and professional. I would thoroughly recommend it.
