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

We had a very nice and friendly greeting when we first arrived. We were shown to our room, which was a nice size with a great bathroom. The shower had great water pressure and we loved how hot the towel rack made our towels. Very toasty! The bed was comfortable and the coffee provided in the room was good. The... More

My family booked The Five Bells for a surprise 50th birthday party for me on Valentines evening. My daughter who made most of the arrangements said the owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful with the planning and preparations. The pub is perfect for a party with lovely sofa areas and dance floor. Everyone who attended have told... More

We stayed over for one night on the 15th feb before travelling by eurotunnel. We stopped in the apartment and it was lovely. Spacious, nicely decorated and had everything you could want. The hosts were friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough. As we were leaving early the next morning they were not available for breakfast but very kindly made... More
