A few of us stayed at the Captain Howey on a golf trip to nearby Littlestone GC. Our rooms were recently decorated, generously appointed and very comfortable. The hotel staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. At breakfast we were offered the full English - bacon, sausage, egg, tomato, hash brown, mushrooms, fried bread, baked beans and toast... More

I can only echo the other recent reviewers. Don't judge by the exterior. Friendly staff, comfortable and clean rooms and a lovely breakfast (juice, cereal, real coffee and a full English). We stayed with relatives who were also impressed. We stayed for one night while visiting the RHDR railway. Two doubles and a single. All en suite with a nice... More

As previous reviews say from outside it does have a basic pub appearance but once inside you are greeted by friendly & helpful staff. Our room was very clean & overlooked the RH & DR. Our room had an extra bed so we had 2 adults & 1 child in there - I must say my daughter was impressed with... More

Having received friendly and helpful service prior to arrival I was not disappointed in anything when I arrived. The owners were on holiday but service was first rate with nothing too much trouble. The rooms are clean and attractive with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was great and the evening meals delicious and good value for money. I... More

When we drove up we were rather concerned at the basic pub appearance. First entry into the bar gives an OK impression and, contrary to an earlier review, they serve a great pint of Bombardier. All concerns put aside by the welcome from our hosts, the cleanliness of the rooms, and general understanding of excellent customer service. It's not the... More

The room we had overlooked Littlestone Road opposite the Romney, HYTHE & Dymchurch Railway was clean with on suite all well kept with a daily service. The food both breakfast and evening meal with a good choice served by the hotel host who always made time to make you feel welcome was first class. We will spend further weekends here.... More

We needed an overnight stay in New Romney and usually would have used one of the motel chains. But we stumbled across the Captain Howey which was an excellent choice. The room was warm and comfortable, the bathroom spotless with a good array of towels. The evening meal and breakfast were both well cooked with a good choice of options... More

First the positives: The staff are all very friendly, they served a good breakfast. But; the bar is dire, looks like it's seen better days and only serves keg beer (relevant if you are an ale fan - this is not the place for you). My single room was pokey, basic and bare. Not a chair to sit on and... More

My son and I just spent several nights at the Captain Howey Hotel. Great experience. This hotel is 100 feet from New Romney Station at RHDR. Rooms were simple, but clean and comfortable. Great job on food....very good. Excellent Pub. There is no better place in Romney to stay if you are going to RHDR.

We stayed for 1 night recently, so I could take a course driving a steam train, the staff are very warm & friendly, particularly the owner & his wife, the food served,was although typical "pub food" was always very hot & plentiful. Breakfast choices also of a very good standard. Only downside (on our visit) the room was cold, &... More
