We arrived to a warm welcome after a long day's travel. Very spacious room for us and our young son. Excellent full English breakfast with just the right amount of food! Owner very friendly - had a chat before departure. Would highly recommend.

A lovely run family business, the hosts were more than welcoming, pleasant and accommodating, we could of spent hours talking to them, like the hotel they were a pleasure to be around. The hotel sits perfectly with the surroundings quaint and traditional, and from a long five hours of traveling you could not ask for anything more than a warm... More

Staff seemed friendly and we was asked what time we would need to leave in the morning, so the... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago with my bridesmaids whilst preparing for my wedding and had a lovely stay! The owners were so friendly and gave us some wonderful star treatment which included a breakfast with bubbly on the morning of the wedding. The rooms were great and I had a good night's sleep despite my nerves about... More

I stayed here for two nights with three friends whilst walking the North Downs Way from Canterbury to Dover. The owners were very hospitable, helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and pleasant. Good breakfast. Location was also good, about 10 minutes from Dover Priory station.

We arrived a bit early on the warmest day in July. We were a bit warm after walking uphill from the Dover Priory Station (an easy walk if not traveling with heavy luggage for a 14 day cruise). No one was at the desk so we sat on the nice porch overlooking the most gorgeous flowers on the entire street... More

We stayed here one night, before an early morning start across the Channel, so I can't comment on the breakfast. The room was clean, comfortable and despite the fact we had a room at the front, was quiet. We had a very good night's sleep. The bathroom was better than the one in a posh hotel we recently stayed in,... More

The reviews for this place indicate that people's experiences vary. I didn't care for it or the attitude/manner of the owner. First off, the road it is situated on is full of very shabby, rundown Georgian houses mostly let as flats. This never enhances an area although obviously this is a different issue unrelated to my experience of the B&B.... More
