We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Crete Down which is located on a quite street overlooking Folkestone. Henryka is a wonderful host and she gave us many tips on places to visit and eat around the area. The Jackdaw in Denton being our pick. Our room was clean and well appointed. Bed was comfy and shower was great. Breakfast... More

We had stayed there before and liked it. It is conveniently situated a few minutes drive to the Channel Tunnel shuttle, which was our reason for staying there, to catch it early the next morning. We had the pink room upstairs and although spacious and clean, the bed was extremely uncomfortable, and we kept slipping towards the middle. Not a... More

On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady, Henryka who invited us to take tea with her in her beautiful huge garden, where we sat in the sunshine chatting. Our room was the Wedgewood Double en-suite, I have to say I have never slept in such a large bed, and my husband who is well over 6' appreciated the... More

I've just spent two nights at Crete Down B&B and can, without hesitation, wholeheartedly recommend staying in this very special B&B. Henryka has opened her lovely home to B&B guests and is a perfect host. Each of the four rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean with every attention to detail considered. The views over the downs towards Folkestone are beautiful... More

I've stayed at Crete Down several nights a week for quite a few weeks since July 2012 [so 3 months now] and have found Henryka to be a wonderfully warm and friendly lady who does all she can to make my stay pleasant and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for her and at the end of a busy day... More

My fiancée and I stayed for one night at this beautiful B&B before our early trip to France at 6am the next day. I spoke with Mrs McDuff beforehand about our early departure and wondered if we could have a breakfast to take with us on the road as it was such an early start, and she was very accommodating....

This was our first visit to Crete Down. We were attending a wedding in Folkestone. I found Crete Down on the internet but after previous disappointments with booking online, I was fortunate to have a niece living in Folkestone who popped in to see Henryka unannounced. She showed my niece all the rooms and as a result my niece chose... More

We stayed here one night each on the way to and back from Cornwall. Our room with a great view over Folkestone was nicely furnished and clean. It was large enough for a short stay. We would have preferred a firmer mattress but that is our personal preference. The full English breakfast plus cereals and toast was very good. Joghurt,... More
