This was a beautiful little stay with very friendly and attentive service. (May 2011) We enjoyed the beautiful views, and how central this location was to places like Leeds Castle, Hever Castle, Canterbury and Dover. Most importantly, perhaps, was house safe we felt and how clean everything was. We were three women traveling by ourselves, so safety was important. I... More

We Sourced Downsview to its locality to William Harvey Hospital. Unfortunately our Father suffered a cardiac arrest,was in a coma in ICU. From the moment we contacted the Owner Christine about our Nans stay,she should could not have been more accommodating, offering a ground floor room as our Nan is elderly and suffering with a fractured knee. A very warm... More

We had to overnight in Ashford as my partner had an evening hospital appointment followed by an early appointment the following morning. Downsview is well situated for the hospital, town centre and main road to Canterbury. The room was far better than we had anticipated for the £55 we paid. It was large, clean, well appointed and cosy and warm.... More

We were visiting William Harvey hospital for tests for me and initially chose to stay here for its location. It also looked very homely However we were surprised by the way we were accommodated by Shaun, the owner, as we were offered an upgrade to a bigger room as the twin room we had booked was not available. This was... More

The exterior of this hotel give an ominous impression of what is to be expected. We were greeted with a sort of 3rd degree of inquisition. The place smelled stale. Our room was just OK however we discovered that the lavatory had not been properly cleaned. We tried to connect to the internet, we could not. Eventually we were told... More

I arrived at 8 . 30 in the evening and received an extremely warm welcome from the owner. The room (no11) was spacious and very clean with lots of useful amenities like a hairdryer, iron and ironing board! A fan and plenty of toiletries. Although I didn't eat here- I am on a special diet - the breakfast looked and... More

Surprised to find such a shabby room with dirty mugs for tea and toothmugs that were filthy. Even worse were the hairs from previous occupants on the bathroom floor. And no shower gel - don't they clean or check the rooms? Continental breakfasts usually have more than one croissant per person and even the one delivered was small and crushed... More

I stayed with my two daughters on the way to a family funeral. We had booked a large room with 3 singles; on checking in, this was no longer available. But the owner quickly gave us a double and a twin instead (same rate). Although the guest house had taken a deposit on my booking, we were charged the full... More

The staff were welcoming, the room was clean and very comfortable, the location was good for Ashford International. It was good value for money, in quiet, pleasant surroundings and I would definitely stay again. Only minor gripes - the shower was insipid, no water pressure, and the long quilt covers on the beds were too heavy and were a tripping... More
