On arrival we had a friendly greeting from the staff on duty, we were shown to our room, which is above the bar. The very loud thudding music was turned off at 11.30pm, and the very noisy customers left. The mattress was very uncomfortable, with the springs sticking into us, the pillows were lumpy, we got about 2hrs sleep. The... More

We originally booked a 2 night stay at the Port Arms but soon decided after our first night we would like to stay another extra day, which they were able to do. Fantastic room with a view that did not disappoint. Never had a problem with noise other than the passing traffic. Cleaned everyday and replacement of toiletries and refreshments... More

£80 for a double room with a sea view and more complimentary toiletries than your average hotel chain... Breakfast was very good and plenty of it.. full english, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts and a huge pot of tea.. Yes you can hear noise from below and neighbours so take ear plugs. We will be back for sure. thank you.

We always pop in here when we visit deal for a drink nice friendly bar staff. But on this occasion we stayed in one of their rooms, never again! Walls are so paper thin you feel like you have to creep about and when you make too much noise you are told you will be asked to leave, bearing in... More

We had actually just decided to take a trip to the coast on a very sunny Saturday, after coming across the beautiful village of Deal we then decided to stay the night. The Port has a fantastic beer garden, practically on the beach! Very friendly service, there are only two rooms at this B&b but the room we had was... More

Comfortable room (see our pictures) with sea view in a good location. Friendly staff, good breakfasts. Main downside is the noisy pub below, which could be a problem if you want to go to bed before closing time. Karaoke nights (Fridays and Saturdays) are particularly loud.

Got there a little earlier than expected and the place had quite a few people in but was soon booked in. The lady showed me to the double room at the front which had beautiful views. Both the bedroom and bathroom were immaculate. Bed was comfy and I had a really good sleep despite the karaoke which I was warned... More

Great room, clean, nice soft towels, plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits, nuts etc, free view on the tv and a beautiful view from the window! Dinner was excellent, good service, nice atmosphere, plenty to choose from and it all looked great as it was coming out of the kitchen, I had chicken fajita wraps and my partner had mussels both...

We have two spaniels and needed a dog friendly place at short notice. Was slightly concerned to read some of the older reviews, however, no problem - a generous sized room with sea view and very comfortable and clean bed. On booking we were immediately advised about the kareoke night but it wasnt a problem for us as we knew... More

I booked and paid £80.00 deposit in November 2011 for two rooms for Thursday 5th July. I rang them a week before to confirm that everything was O.K. and was told yes my 2 rooms were still booked. On arrival I was told that the rooms were double booked with no one there to explain why the situation had changed.... More
