Visited for a meal with family. I am local so have been many times before and enjoyed it. But on entering the restaurant we saw that the dinning area had been made open plan and the menue was written on a black board. You had to memorise this before you went to your table as they had done away with... More

Stayed here before and had a great stay the facilities were good. Came back recently bedroom was comfy but seemed to lack coffee/ tea making facilities. Dinner time used to have a olive and breads but didn't have that was really looking forward to it. Overall the breakfast was really good as usual!

On the back of your feedback, we've just ordered 18 lovely Nespresso coffee machines for all the bedrooms to go alongside our lovely new teas from Teapigs, so all bedrooms will have free tea and coffee of the highest quality in just a couple of days time. We still do... More

Stayed here late October . Always a lovely place to stay . Great food service and the staff are always friendly and very helpful . Nice place to chill and just slow the pace down . Sunday lunch is always a must and a visit to the beach is also a must do .

Historic hotel in picturesque village, especially by St Margaret's Bay, very convenient for Dover-Deal. Good buffet breakfast with lovely fresh fruit salad, several Dorset mueslis and selection of cheeses and cold meats: hot dishes available at extra cost but we didn't need them. Nice menu for evening meals. Friendly, helpful staff. Unfortunately the wi fi was erratic, especially in restaurant.... More

Lovely review, thanks ever so much. Glad you enjoyed your White Cliffs Holiday, it really is a great area to explore and we're so lucky to be an area of outstanding natural beauty too. We've just had a brilliant WIFI upgrade to Superfast Fibreoptic Broadband here. We did have a couple of days that went a bit wobbly, but now... More

Old buildings old furniture, bathroom could use an update! Evrything was clean though. Friendly people very good dinner and a nice breakfast. I read somewhere that this hotel was a quiet one.....must be the village that is quiet because I thought the (Hungarian?) music was quite loud. Never the less we had a good night stay.

Thank you for your lovely review. The music was a bit loud on Saturday... Chris was in charge of 'the decks' on that evening & got a little carried away. After his recent visit to the nearby Smuggler's Festival the playlist included the Friday night headliners 'The John Langan Band'. The music has an Eastern European vibe with high energy,... More

We all had dinner which was bang on pub grub. The staff were great, very helpful and accommodated our needs. The rooms were lovely, comfy bed, TV, good shower. All in all great hotel... More

I stayed with my husband and small dog for one night as we were travelling to France the next morning on an early ferry. The location is absolutely gorgeous. It is a lovely picture perfect village. The hotel itself was really surprising in a good way! We got a big room on the beer garden area so we literally opened... More
