This gem of a place personifies the individuality of a great B&B with a price comparable with the many other offerings. The host is welcoming with a great source of knowledge of the local area as well as further afield. Always an offer of beverages and the cooked breakfast differs daily as well as the option of a continental. The... More

What a nice suprise and what a hospitality! Thanks for staying at this great bed & breakfast in Herne Bay. Very nice place to stay and you feel at home. Real British breakfast and the location is perfect to discover Canterbury, Herne Bay and other places and locations in Kent.

Mrs Jean is a very nice lady with wonderful stories to tell. The B&B is clean and very cozy. The bed we had was big and good. The breakfast was very good too and she looks like a real chef when she makes it for you Certainly a B&B to visit again when we should go to England again

We stayed for two nights at the Hobbit Hole in early November, and it was probably the best B&B we've every stayed in, it felt like being at home. Jean is mine host - and what a great host she is, she has so many stories to tell, and there's always tea and coffee on offer, whenever you're around. The... More

I had a great evening's stay here. Why go to a premiere inn on a business trip when you can go to places like this!?! The host was really accommodating and there was a lot to talk about with her. Cosy house and room, lovely bathroom and the breakfast was top notch!!!

Jean is a lovely lady with a delightful, well travelled and welcoming family. I applaud her on her clean and cosy B&B. Me and my partner stayed on a visit to Herne Bay and had one of the best nights sleeps in The Hobbit Hole's Empress bed, enjoyed a delicious breakfast and met a truly pleasant and interesting family.

Enter beneath the bright pink eaves to all the comforts, chaos, charm, and character that is the Hobbit Hole and it's owner Jean (and if you are lucky, Candy and Sebastian will be there too).
