Booked a single room for the first time ever and really wish I hadn't. Room was tiny and was just like old student halls but with more dated furniture. The room and bathroom seemed generally clean although basic and there was an odd musty smell throughout the building. My biggest concern was that the room felt unsafe as it just... More

We always enjoy our stay at this hotel. We love the position and had a sea view room at the front of the hotel. The hotel is ideal for visiting the countryside around, especially The White Cliffs of Dover or a day trip to France

A nice old Victorian building perched on a prominence overlooking the sea. Very comfortable hotel with lots of old world charm. A very nice dining room with a pianist greeting you at the entrance. An ample bar area and lounges. Very helpful staff very close to tunnel and ferry ports.
