John and Chris couln't have been more welcoming even offering to make tea on our arrival. The room was large and comfortable and over looked their beautiful garden. Breakfast was superb and served in their lovely conservatory. As my wife is asthmatic Chris had substituted all the bedding materials with synthetic alternatives. Their home is set in a very quiet...

We stayed two nights at the Summerhouse in Herne Bay (30/5/14-1/06/14) and we were made to feel like it was our home away from home. Christine, her husband and beautiful dog are very welcoming and the breakfasts are great with fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt and a full English all available as well as delicious home made bread. The B&B is... More

We stayed 24-25/5/2014 and was very impressed. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The ensuite was spacious with a bath and shower. Breakfast was great. Full English, toast, cereal, fruit and yoghurt were all available. Totally recommend the sausages! The owners were very friendly and attentive but not overly so. Would love to stay here again. Thoroughly recommend.... More

Lovely place. Enjoyed the stay. Chris is a very nice hostess and gave us lots of useful info. Breakfasts were first class and individually cooked. We only booked one night but stayed the whole weekend ;-)

We only stayed one night at Summerhouse but we would love to have stayed longer. Mark and I stayed in the lemon room and our parents stayed in the twin room. The rooms are so large and spacious and very well set out. It was lovely to have a table and chairs and an easy chair. The bathrooms were spacious... More
