We have just stayed two nights at this historic hotel, we were given such a warm and friendly welcome by Adam, who was so helpful in every aspect, he even offered to carry our luggage to our room,which these days is a rarity !! Once shown the room, we couldn't get over how spacious the room was, considering we even... More

The room was huge and was a lovely bare timbered period room. It just want possibly as clean as I would have liked, inside the cupboards in particular. It was also a particularly cold room, but i imagine it is lovely in the summer. The beer was well kept in the bar and the meal was lovely. I would come... More

For anyone looking for historic charm, clean rooms, comfortable beds, very good food and ales I would certainly recommend The Abbots Fireside. I spent 2 nights and was treated excellently by a very helpful manager and staff. I would visit again if I was in the area.

Having continued to stay here for the past 6 weeks, I am still welcomed with the same level of service and excellent staff as my first night in the hotel. The staff continue to treat me with respect and provide a friendly atmosphere to work, socialise and sleep in. I have a family event coming up and have asked them... More

We had a 10am ferry from Dover so decided to make the trip from Exeter the previous day and stay close to the port. I chose Elham because it was half way between Canterbury and Dover. This hotel is as good as it looks in the photographs. There are nooks and crannies everywhere, creaking floors, old fireplaces, real fires. Fantastic.... More

Have been here numerous times and it just gets better. We walked in to the amazing smell of warming cider by the side of the wood burner. Our table wasn't quite ready so we were shown into the small bar. We were quite early for our booking so this wasn't a problem. We were then shown to our table and... More

Booked on the spur of the moment as travelling to Belgium on an early shuttle. Very polite and accommodating staff and an Inn steeped in charm and character. The room was clean and generously proportioned with good en suite facilities. I have no hesitation in recommending this old Inn. The upper 2 rooms do have quite a steep narrow access,... More
