Excellent choice of breakfast options and delicious food. Warm welcome by host Derek and hostess Pauline. Also excellent situation close to beach and town centre. Room 4 was very comfortable. As room was ready we were able to book in early.

Rooms were spotlessly clean but on the small side. We only stayed one night, so no problem. Great selection for breakfast, very well prepared. Location in a (surprisingly) busy side street, close to Deal Castle and the seafront. Even though free Wifi was advertised, it didn't work in the rooms and the Lounge/breakfast area was locked up during the day.

Just returned from a three night stay over Easter at The Malvern Guesthouse. Proprietor Pauline is very friendly and offers lots of great tips and advice about the area and local attractions. Breakfast is fantastic with a huge choice of different things to eat - all cooked fresh. Room was comfortable and clean with a good sized shower room and... More

I have stayed in this Guest House twice in the past six months and I plan to return in the next month whilst visiting a relative. The owners, Pauline and Derek go to such lengths to make one feel comfortable and their concern for seeing their guests are well catered for is completely genuine. I have not had such a... More

Our stay was brief (only one night) but we'll surely come back to this great guest house where friendliness of the proprietors, great location to explore the beautiful nearby coast and very enjoyable breakfast were the aspects we liked the most.

Stayed while visiting friends. Very welcoming and friendly. Room was big (single rooms are so often pokey and small) and very clean. Bed was very comfortable! Close to town centre and amenities and beach a short walk to the end of the road where the fisher-people sold their catch! An ideal situation to stay in Deal as it is also... More

Several rave reviews gave me unrealistic expectations. We were warned that because of staff holidays the superb breakfast would come from a reduced palette. It did and was still more than adequate and well prepared. The service was excellent, but there were a few drawbacks. Firstly the level of sound insulation was inadequate, as our next door neighbours came back... More

Myself and 3 children stayed at the Malvern and was so pleased. Lovely, friendly staff. Our rooms was clean, comfortable and spacious. (Never seen an electric toilet before) . Great Breakfast with such a great 3 page choice. Kids loved it. Highly recommend and really grateful for all your help when we visited. Thanks again.

I have stayed at The Malvern Guest House 3 times. The Guest house is very clean and the rooms are comfortable. We always get a warm welcome. Breakfast is a highlight with an extensive menu to choose from, I particularly enjoyed the vegetarian options. Service was excellent and it was really good value for money. I would recommend The Malvern... More
