We recently had our wedding reception here. I was slightly nervous as a new management team had come in a few weeks before, well I had no need to be! Simon, Shelley and the team couldn't do more for us, they made our day fuss and stress free and with a couple of personal touches thrown in I wouldn't hesitate... More

On arrival we had a reasonably warm welcome having finally found our way into the bar. We were shown our room, the Dover apartment, which on the surface had everything we needed. So far so good other than the rather strong smell of stale cooking fat in the restaurant. However this soon changed when we were told that if we... More

It's places like this that make u stay away from the chained hotel groups. I was here for my best friends wedding and the service, attention to detail, food and accommodation was faultless. Normally I have loads to write about hotels that I stay in but I am stuck for words as everything was simply spot on, well done!!

Room and bathroom clean, very friendly service. Close to the center of Deal and Dover. I highly recommend and possible that once again use this hotel. In the morning a very good breakfast served by a smiling waitress. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet and cozy accommodation.

The pub looks beautiful from the outside and the staff were friendly but the food was terrible and took ages to arrive. Kid's Pizza was burnt and the curry was less than appetising. It's probably worth just sticking to drinks.

Very pretty and well presented little inn. Room in the courtyard was small but well appointed and very clean. Bed really comfortable with quality bedding and good ensuite. Staff were really friendly, welcoming & helpful. Excellent value for money and just minutes from the ferry.

We stayed in one of the small apartments in the courtyard a comfortable and clean accomodation containing all facilities required for a pleasant stay with the added bonus of being next to the pub and restaurant,I would definitely stay again and would recommend to others.

We stayed here as a family of 5 before our very early ferry crossing. The management were friendly and the apartment was clean and plenty large enough for an over night stay.. There is a small step going into the bedroom that my youngest child hurt herself on. We were warned it was there, and I'm not blaming the place,... More

This is a country pub on the main but not very busy road between Dover and Deal. Stayed overnight on a Saturday after attending a wedding locally and arrived to discovery a busy (fun not rowdy) private party filling the pub. Our room (#2) was above the main bar so party noise filtered up but the music was turned off... More
