Chloe has the patience of a saint! Hate going to the hairdresser's, but this was a treat...feet up, head massage & cup of tea. Plus I'm really pleased with my hair. Chloe kept tweaking until I was happy. Thank you so much. Would recommend to all. Thank you

It was my first visit and I couldn’t have been more pleased. All of the staff were so welcoming and friendly and a big thank you to Sam who did an amazing job! Best salon in Maidstone by far.

True Colourz Hair Beauty Nails Salon

96 King St, Maidstone ME14 1BH, UK – 01622 688988

Had some "intimate waxing" done today and the therapist (Maria) was excellent. I've had this type of waxing done in other places and this was the least painful experience (and the cheapest if you don't count the student I had wax me) I have had, and a really good price too! The salon isn't your usual high end "piped music and aromatherapy scented atmosphere" But it was clean and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. All in all a good waxing experience and I will definitely be going back and recommend it if you just want a good job dome and aren't to bothered about the "frills". Having said that I was offered tea/coffee on arrival and that was nice :)

Had the whole family get hair cut. Great place. Welcoming and staff are really nice and friendly. Kids loved it.

Bookshops

Waterstones

24, Fremlin Walk Shopping Centre, 44 Fremlin Walk, Maidstone ME14 1QP, UK – 01622 682042

Great variety of well laid out books on several levels. Lifts and stairs to all floors. I usually go to Waterstones for the Coffee shop which has a really nice ambience as well as excellent coffee teas and drinks. Snacks as well. Good place to hang out and relax from consumerism. Do some paperwork or catch up with friends on the phone. Music is good. Staff are friendly and efficient and the place is clean. Plenty of parking in the multistorey. Would recommend.

Great bookshop as expected. Bought two books. Job done

WHSmith

38-42 Week St, Maidstone ME14 1RP, UK – 01622 692590

Too much different stuff in this place. Are you a post office, a book store or food shop? Confusing for man. Bought a 50p bottle of diet coke though so happy days.

Good for books general stationary. Ink cartridges for printers books & school stuff

Oxfam

34 Gabriel's Hill, Maidstone ME15 6JJ, UK

Always a great place for picking up a decent book or two at a reasonable price. Has a great selection of SF books, romance, art, music, movies, history, DVDs etc. Friendly staff as well. Quite a turnover of books so grab it if you see a favourite book as it is likely to be gone by your next visit (I have learnt that at my cost many a time). Probably the best secondhand book shop in Maidstone (though some of the others are not bad either)

Great for second hand books and not too expensive.

needed to order a rear light cluster ford didn't have in stock. It only took two days for them to organise delivery from another branch so I had time to replace it before the boss returned from holiday. :)

Great people who work there help you out

Inta Motorcycle Services Ltd

99-107 Upper Stone St, Maidstone ME15 6HE, UK – 01622 688727

Brilliant service from the team at Inta. Went to get front tyre changed, then after bike wouldn't start. Austin arranged for one of his delivery drivers to drop me back home as I had no other way of getting back. They kept bike and gave full service as per my request and solved why bike wouldn't start (Intermittent fault with fuel pump) then dropped bike back off for me. Great service from a team that went above and beyond. Will defiantly be using again.

I have a problem with my motorcycle light and the staff at Inta Motorcycles were helpful, full of explanation and good advice and I will be having some new lights fitted there (when they arrive from Amazon). Also, once I have passed my Modules 1 & 2, I will be purchasing my biker bike from them as they are a company that are helpful and good value for money. The selection of bikes available are amazing. I even had a look at a beautiful Harvey Davidson ..... maybe that will be my next bike??!!??

Top service by Dave and his team! Cannot be more pleased with the effort, problem solving and attitude towards the issue I had with my car audio! Dave went out of his way to ensure the best customer service was delivered. The end result is superb. I would highly recommend Car Audio Mechanics! Well done and a massive thanks from me 😊

Thank you so much to Dave for fixing my bmw car radio. After 2 garages looked at it and scratched their heads I was then told i needed a new radio. Contacted Dave who knew what the issue was straight away. Professional, knowledgable, speedy repair and I cant recommend Dave highly enough. Thank you 😊

I called Paul Mill TV as they were local to me - the big boys were hopeless! The guys arrived bang on time, identified and fixed my issue and were gone within the hour. Fabulous service. Highly recommend.

Nice people, refreshing to have someone who really knows his stuff first class service.

Excellent customer service with a friendly welcoming manner. If your looking for a great deal then you must try Richer Sounds, Maidstone.

Great service if a little slow when busy. Good knowledgeable advice. Thanks

Car Dealers

Marshams

88-90 Upper Stone St, Maidstone ME15 6HD, UK – 01622 200100

A pleasure to deal with, couldn't have been more helpful. Clear cut on the part exchange on the vehicle we were swapping out. The vehicle purchased was as described to the letter and the service was superb at the point of collection. The extended warranty they offer was explained concisely and was easy to include at the point of purchase. Hassle free and much recommended.

Thank you to Jason for a great service! We appreciated all your help in purchasing our Volvo XC90. Best price we could find and nicest interior seen. You and your team made everything easy and I have already recommended you to our friends who are also looking for a new car. Thank you we will be coming back......

Haynes Ford (Haynes of Maidstone Ltd)

23 Ashford Rd, Maidstone ME14 5DQ, UK – 01622 756781

Great experience. I was helped by Bailey Seager one of the very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful Sales Team. I would recommend to use this company. I liked the fact you are not pressured but given all the information and time to make your own decisions . Ford's have always been know for their build quality and are reliability, that is why I was interested to see what they had to offer. I found they are very competitive within the market. Well worth your time and effort to look.

**UPDATE** (Part of the original post); Having purchased 2 cars from this particular dealer now, with no issues - the used car sales guys and girls are always pleasant and helpful. Matt and Niamh have both sold me a car which I've been happy with, I did have a few niggly bits and a big issue with my current vehicle but my reason for this review is, the service department and the technicians in the garage - or rather, the one that carried the work out on my vehicle and people need to be aware of this, especially Haynes. *Update* Changing the review from a 2 * to a 4 * as Haynes seem to have really taken note that the work carried out on this occasion, wasn't up to scratch and I gave my word that I would update this, so not to tarnish their name. After Sue advised me to contact Haynes directly, I have a follow up email from Ricki, the Assistant Manager in the service dept - who seemed very concerned about the issues I had experienced. After a couple of email exchanges, it appears that moving forward, Haynes Ford are going to take extra caution when next working on my car. All in all, I appreciate how you've turned this around, and of course time will tell. December 2018, I'm due to come back for a 3rd year service. Thanks again Sue & Ricki. Steve Halls

Lipscomb Lotus

Performance House, Forstal Rd, Aylesford ME20 7XA, UK – 0845 338 9909

Top quality, they even washed and vacuumed my jeep during a product recall. They also gave it a complete health check too. Great stuff...

Regarding Lipscomb Lotus. I have been using Lipscomb's Services for the past Ten Years. Within that Time, The Employees have always been Helpful, Honest, Understanding, Always updating me on any Repairs that my Car has been in For. Lipscomb's Service if Very Good

Filling Stations

Ashford Road Service Station

1 Ashford Rd, Maidstone ME14 5DA, UK – 01622 355120

4⭐ as open 24 hours not just the pumps but the shop is too and has a 24 hr alcohol & tobacco licence. The fuel prices are marginally above other places but it is 24hr so understandable. Staff (both day and night) are friendly and cheerful in my experience. The fuel pumps seem out of date compared to the new digital type but it makes little difference really. The shop has a ramp and hand rails for easy access which is a good feature of this petrol station.

Great service station just as you come into Maidstone. Polite staff too....

Esso

127 Boxley Rd, Maidstone ME14 2TJ, UK – 01444 458585

Fairly good gas station. The staff do try to be helpful and friendly. Prices are about the same as stations around the area. Outside they have air and water for the car. They have a coffee machine and a good selection of snacks and treats.

It's a petrol station enough said really and the staff are pleasant enough. A great position in the town also

Esso

143 Ashford Rd, Bearsted, Maidstone ME14 4NE, UK – 07718 524535

Reasonable selection of goods, but expensive and poor quality compared to Tesco Express stations.

Tesco express prices a little more expensive than the larger stores!

Fuel 24 Hour

Shell

Sandling Rd, Maidstone ME14 2RL, UK – 01622 693057

Good garage.

Clean, bright and freindly.

BP

Ashford Rd, Bearstead, Bearsted, Maidstone ME14 4NA, UK – 01622 524046

Small shop. Automatic carwash is pretty good and also has 2 manual jet wash positions; vacuum and tire pressure positions. Reasonable pump prices for the area.

A lot less busy than the Tesco station across the road and service with a smile at less cost. What's not to like?

Esso

CHATHAM ROAD, Maidstone ME14 2ND, UK – 01622 683597

Almost 1 star given after finding the loo very smelly but not visibly dirty with no soap in the dispenser. Staff said no soap until the cleaner comes tomorrow. I borrowed a £1 bottle of Carex from the shop by saying I would pay for it. After a short discussion they let me off paying for soap.

Just of the main 229 handy petrol station and small shop for local area and motorway. Usually fair prices. Seems to always be open.

Motorcycle and Scooters

Laguna Motorcycles

Hart St, Maidstone ME16 8RA, UK – 01622 681765

Friendly staff in sales. Workshop quite pricey. Hourly rate is as much as many quality car service shops. That said, the chaps in there are a good bunch, know their stuff and are very helpful. If you have a budget and don't want a second mortgage, might be worth shopping around.

Bought a new KTM 790 last Saturday from Maidstone they kindly booked me in and completed my first service seven days later, fantastic service. Big thank you to Mark and Stuart for their help. Had a chance to make several purchases from the clothing department which again great service very helpful and knowledgable staff, again thanks to Sarah and Paul. Highly recommended

J&S Accessories Ltd - Maidstone

Lower Boxley Rd, Maidstone ME14 2UU, UK – 01622 679976

Just kitted myself out at J&S Accessories, Maidstone. A special thanks to Mike, and all the lads there, amazing customer service, very knowledgeable and helpful. Their range of accessories is second to none, along with their service. Thanks again, and will for sure be back soon.

Good laugh with the staff. Always willing to help out and kit you out.

Incredibly helpful staff. I am buying a sofa and chair from them, but needed to check measurements and colour matching. I would always check here first if looking for second-hand furniture

Bought our furniture here when we first moved to Maidstone. They have quite a good selection and their service is good. Keep up the hardwork, volunteers!

Sue Ryder Care

96-98 Week St, Maidstone ME14 1RL, UK – 01622 754710

As a keen DIY-er and bargain hunter, I’m never disappointed when shopping for second hand furniture in this store. The volunteers are genuinely helpful and friendly. Despite being busy this morning, 2 of them proactively came out and helped load our little car with a table. They provide excellent customer experience. The commitment they have towards providing support to individuals with complex needs and long term illness, truly shows! BIG UP, Team Maidstone!

A fantastic branch of this store. Really reasonably priced items and utterly helpful staff.

Children's Clothes

Matalan

A, Broadway Shopping Centre, Broadway, Maidstone ME16 8PS, UK – 0333 004 4444

Store is clean and on the whole tidy. Great range of value clothing and home products. Many of the clothes are of great quality and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between them and say Next or H&M. Staff are very helpful and go above and beyond in finding stock. Click and collect could be a bit more efficient but that's not the stores fault more a company wide issue.

Lovely bank holiday visit to Matalan, it was nice and quiet due to the lovely weather I think. There is a shock sale on with some lovely summer bits included. As always they have a broad range of men’s, women’s, children’s clothes and homeward too. This little centre has free parking , wheelchair access and a toilet ( which is ok if you’re desperate) Matalan have stopped accepting student cards for discount which is a downside! However,I must say that I always find something to buy, their falmers range is lovely. Additionally, size range from 6-22 for ladies and small to XXL for men. Lovely and cool as it’s air conditioned.

Mothercare

12 Week St, Maidstone ME14 1RN, UK – 01622 754181

It sold the specific items I was looking for. It sold them adequately enough. It has automatic doors.

Very friendly helpful staff. Store needs an update. Feels dated.

Burton

17-19 Week St, Maidstone ME14 1QW, UK – 01622 681325

Needed a suit. Bought a suit. Job done. Staff member looked at me like I was a freak for wanting to try it on though. Do people in Maidstone not do that anymore? Am I weird?!

Literally my favourite shop to visit, there is always a great discount. Burton is up to date with the latest trends and styles at affordable rates

Topman

Fremlin Walk Shopping Centre, 19/21 Fremlin Walk, Maidstone ME14 1QG, UK – 01622 692775

Trendy yet comfortable products ? Check. Amazing prices, deals, and discounts ? Check. Understanding returns policy ? Check. Swift delivery and options ? Check. Helpful, happy staff ? Check. There's nothing not to love. HOWEVER I must say since moving I've been more taken to ordering online (besides, there's online exclusives). I recommend this store, but more specifically this brand. It caters to a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and occasions (gym wear, job attire, etc.).

Got a couple of Xmas prezzie, nice helpful staff

Moss Bros.

17 Gabriel's Hill, Maidstone ME15 6HR, UK – 01622 761953

She was patient and caring, understood what styles my nan was interested in buying and pulled out selections for her. Thank you Sarah.

He reinstalled Windows and all the related programs I needed. The laptop has been fine ever since. I will definitely use his services again and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Came out and fixed two computers. One he took away and brought back that night and set it up working better then it was new, the second one he fixed here. When we found a problem a couple of days later he drove back out and fixed.

Fantastic store from child specific craft to adult hobby resources. Whether you are needing ideas or those bits to enhance an existing project they have it all.

12 Commodore Rd, Maidstone ME14 5PH, UK – 07707 938007

A converted sceptic! As a keen cyclist, I expected these bikes to interfere with the simplicity of cycling. We took a test ride from Herne Bay to Broadstairs and back (about 40miles) and the technology disappears leaving the joy of cycling front and centre. Hills are as tough as you choose, and it’s certainly a great way to feel fit :o) More Famous-Five, than Team Sky, but a comfy riding position on well-made bikes. Thanks Paul for being so generous with your time!

So the time has come my husband asked if I would make the trip to start looking at new kitchens “we’re off to Wickes” he said. I wasn’t looking forward to it as we having opposing taste and opinions on the design front. So we packed our grandson and all that entails at 20 months and ventured out. Do you know it was great. With said grandson in tow we could park in designated area close to the shop(massive car park-free for first 1.5hours) inside it’s rather sparse but full!!! I quickly learned this isn’t a general DIY store, there’s no frills and household bits and bobs, it’s honest to goodness straight to the point what it says on the tin, all you need for work at home or trade. They had about 12 kitchens displayed (very nice) in addition they had worktop displays and doors from each kitchen style in different colours,great. Searching out tiles for the kitchen floor I found a lovely large choice of colour, texture and effects. The same with wall tiles and other options available. Distracted my husband found the new sitting room flooring at a great price, solid oak, lovely,we even chose a bathroom. This is all great headway as we haven’t come to any decisions in two years regarding this as we opposed one another. Today’s feast gave us options we loved!!!

She dealt with the situation so well and professionally. She even spoke to my nan over the phone who was the one who couldn't get out of the house to return herself. Lovely person to have at your store.

Staff are helpful! Very good selection of garden and cooking range. Would recommend!

Saint Peters Wharf Retail Park, St Peter's St, Maidstone ME16 0SN, UK – 01622 687002

I hadn't shopped in the range for a full year's and decided to take a look at what they had. The shop is fill of lots of good practical stuff but..... Please be careful when purchasing from the range, items are advertised at one price and yet they will charge you a different price at the till. And when you question the difference the staff simply say there is nothing the can do about it. It surprised me to be honest, It works out that if 1000 people visited the store and brought the same item as I didn't and didn't check the price at the till the range would be £1000 up per day for nothing. I doubt I'll be shopping there again any time soon.

Who don't like the range?! It's a really big store. Parking just outside and in the middle of some great shops. Fremlins walk is the other side of the river. Makes for a shop filled day. The Range has something for everyone. Go visit. You only got 4 stars because your shop lay out is weird and actually doesn't work. It sucks.

Mr Flower Maidstone

5 Earl St, Maidstone ME14 1PL, UK – 01622 693580

Just like to say what a lovely shop this really is nothing like going in and actually smelling a florist. I love to buy my flowers here I do so every 2 weeks the girl (dark hair) is always very pleasant and always happy to help me, she's very chatty and makes me feel at ease when I don't ever know what flowers are what. Would highly recommend shop always clean and tidy. Staff are more than fantastic! Keep up the good work dark haired girl!!

Wouldn't go anywhere else for my flowers. Long lasting and beautiful bouquets. Staff are so helpful and welcoming, especially the younger lady, she knows what I'm looking for every time I go in there and always makes sure I'm happy. Great customer service

Maidenhead Aquatics, even though the location is a new requisition the standards of fish and Aquariums is top notch. The staff are knowledgeable and eager to assist with either service or allowing you to squeeze information from their own experiences. Andy the manager and his Team will show you the most compatible fish for the tanks or tank you want.

We visit quite regularly to go the restaurant. It's really changed over the years, and I have to say the prices are quite high I feel. The air conditioning needs improving in the restaurant as its always hot in there.

2 Fremlin Walk, Maidstone ME14 1QP, UK – 01622 683951

This relates to an online purchase, not a store. A poor and disappointing service. I purchased a diamond ring for my wife's 50th birthday which is this Friday, paid a deposit of £1100 which is the last of my money this side of the new year and was promised that they item was in stock and would be delivered in time for this Friday. Received an email today saying they made a mistake and the ring cannot be delivered until the 23rd, too late. Having informed me so late in the day, I’m told I will not receive my deposit for 3 to 5 days. So no ring, no money to buy another! Shop the old fashioned way, not online! Update... Visited the Maidstone store yesterday to buy an alternative ring, the staff there were great. Didn't have the right size ring but they've ordered the right one and I presented my wife with a slightly smaller ring this morning, she was delighted. The member of staff in the store has offered to deliver the correct size ring later today to our house! Head office also called me yesterday and we received a gift voucher this morning by way of an apology. In future I'll go direct to the store as they are fantastic! Online shopping, not for me!

What a wonderful shop , you're treated like royaltie and lovely staff too xx

H. Samuel, Maidstone

312 Dukes Walk, Maidstone ME15 6AS, UK – 01622 751101

The salesman hoped to his feet to help us find our perfect rings. The issue was that the store had barely any choice. Even the online stores has run out of stock. Found it a little uncomfortable that the salesman had decided we were going to return (in a month’s time) after purchase for new wedding rings. #SuperAwkward We tried to leave as soon as we figured they were closing (the manager began rolling down the shutters) but the salesman kept repeating the same info over and over again. I guess overall the experience was comical.

Good service

Sports Direct Maidstone Chequers Centre

Msu01, The Mall Maidstone, King St, Maidstone ME15 6AT, UK – 0344 332 5395

My past experiences with Sports Direct staff are that they are usually quite rude but I later learnt that their working conditions are one of the worse. With no incentives, I'm not surprised by their attitude but I was pleasantly surprised this week by Inga, a member of staff from the Chequers centre branch. She was extremely helpful and kind. I just would like to remind the owner of Sports Direct that the lifestyle you have today is thanks to your staff and that you should treat them better instead of you/ your family wasting money pretending to be something that you are not.

Good place to buy branded sports wear cheaper than the rrp. Excellent deals when they have sales on. The only thing i don't like is the fact they don't offer refunds, it's store credit only even if the fault is there own !

Home Media Limited

24-26 Union St, Maidstone ME14 1ED, UK – 01622 676703

Knowledgeable and friendly bunch of lads. Great selection of audio products aimed at giving the customer a listening experience they may not have realised that could be achieved within their price range. I am delighted with my recent acquisitions. Thanks again for putting me in the right track. And the coffees not bad either.

My first purchase with HM, was a Rega turntable, maybe 8 years ago, and I have happily purchased various amps/streamers/DAC's since then. Their advice, on listening to my set up, on cable upgrades (a very vexed subject for some), proved to be spot-on, with opportunity to take various cables home and try them out/compare etc. Most recently they advised against me upgrading a personal digital player - advising that I would see little benefit for an extra £750. Truly professional and customer focused.

Kate made us the most gorgeous 4-tier buttercream wedding cake that matched our somewhat vague brief perfectly! The cake tasted amazing, and we really appreciated Kate's flexibility at the last minute delaying delivery by 5hrs so the cake didn't melt away in the unexpected August Bank Holiday heatwave! Cannot recommend her enough, thank you Kate! x

Chelsea Buns Cake Design - Wedding Cakes in Kent

Chelsea was fantastic from the first email to the last. We had already heard of Chelsea before we began planning our suppliers so we weren’t pleased to see her listed as a recommended supplier on our venue’s website. Her portfolio is outstanding, and choices of flavours and cake style endless. We met with Chelsea in the comfort of our own home and had a fabulous time tasting her lovely cakes. We had a few ideas about why we would like and together we came up with something so unique and beautiful. Chelsea teased us with photos of the sugar calla lillies and it was so exciting seeing our cake brought to life. It looked as great as it tasted: rich, luxurious and mouthwatering sweet. We had a different flavour for every tier and all our guests LOVED it! We cannot thank you enough Chelsea, you really did create a showstopper. We have plenty frozen to enjoy over the coming months.

Chelsea made my husband and i an absolutely gorgeous naked 3 tiered cake with fresh fruits and sugar flowers for our wedding this weekend and it looked absolutely spectacular and tasted delicious. I havent managed to stop eating it yet! It wasn't just the finished product that we were so impressed with, but Chelsea's support and guidance, nothing was too much trouble and she pulled out all the stops to ensure everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better cake and really appreciate her help in catering for my dietary requirements. Asking for gluten free is a hard task and she nailed it xx

Nicely set out wines, easy to browse, some to taste. Mostly you have to buy minimum of 6 bottles to qualify for lower prices ( is wine warehouse after all) and looking at it felt even with that discount wine did seem overpriced, staff friendly and helpful though
