What can I say but I would definitely recommend this guest house! Margaret was the perfect host to begin with. She gave us the choice of room which was great as my partner (unfortunately)likes to have a cigarette so the garden room was perfect for us as he could just step outside into the beautiful garden and make his way...

If you are traveling without a car, this a wonderful spot to be. The White Cliffs, Dover castle, and the rest of town were all a short walk from here. The room was everything we needed; clean, comfortable, great wifi, a wonderful breakfast enjoyed in-room and a private garden entrance. We felt very welcomed by Margaret.
