This was perfect. Near the tunnel, cheap and spotlessly clean. We wanted a quick getaway for an early train to France and after arriving very late (the owner arranged for someone to wait up for our late arrival) we were pleasantly surprised. Don't expect the ritz but it is clean, convenient and exactly right for what we needed; a family... More

For only £60 a night this is excellent value. Room 7 is at the top of the building, is nicely decorated, comfortable and has all the amenities you'd expect, tea and coffee, TV, free wifi, toiletries There's a good view of the downs above Folkestone from the window. Our host could not have been more friendly, breakfast was very good... More

The Owner was looking out for me as she knew, which train I was on. I arrived earlier than official check-in time. She carried my case up to the room and down the next morning. She was very helpful. The room was very small, but OK. The bathroom was tiny. Bath stuff provided. There was plenty. Extra pillows were provided... More

We stayed here for one night before taking Eurotunnel. Arrived mid evening. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Room was not luxurious was absolutely fine for the night. Shower good. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very good. Only slight complaint would be that the facilities stated free parking. I assumed this was on site but found it was street parking... More

Stayed ahead of Eurotunnel journey and location 10m away. Very clean B&B and family run, with very nice owners. Family room was nice enough with pleasant touches but the main issue was the size of the bathroom - very small is an understatement. Breakfast okay but basic. Location good for ET but parking close by is difficult, and worried overnight... More

We enjoyed our stay at Kentmere in a comforatable airy and light room with a comfortable bed. The service was good, with every effort made to meet any requests we had, as well as provide information and recommendations for meals and entertainment. The breakfast was good and could be expanded to full English Breakfast, which we did. We will stay... More
