Staff very friendly and accommodating. The food also very good. However the rooms are a little tired. Bed clean and fresh, good towels and nice toiletries. Not sure that the website is a true reflection of the hotel though.

My husband and I stayed for my birthday weekend as a rare no-kids trip. The welcome was warm and the staff were friendly. The rooms are stylish, spacious and comfortable. And the restaurant/bar had a great atmosphere. It's a nice walk to a pretty pebble beach and an easy drive to the white cliffs - lots of great views around.... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room a little tatty. Good bar and restaurant facilities. Plenty of parking. Great location for the ferry and for long blustery walks. Also a couple of nice traditional bars/restaurants in the same village. Garden out the back looks like a lovely place for a summer evening.

Relatively charming little hotel in St Margaret's Cliffe, outside the grey sadness of Dover (often referred to as one of sections of the world's colon - and best avoided..). We're staying here as a family, so get to see some of the rooms.. They are spotlessly clean, warm and basic, but with very creaky beds and not too much sound... More

Thanks for your feedback. We ourselves struggle to classify what we do. Yes, we have a lovely restaurant and a buzzing bar/pub atmosphere. But at the same we have 18 bedrooms and are open for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner 7 days a week. We call ourselves a hotel but yes, we could also call ourselves a...

We booked a one night stay via Secret Escapes - the double room we were given on checking in was in the annex, which was very average / tired in decor with a small bathroom that could have done with some modernisation. It wasn't until we came home that I realised we had actually paid for an Executive room (which... More

We note that you stayed in a Coastal Class room as opposed to an Old School room on 13th December 2014. Please accept our sincere apologies for the error, it appears that one of the team placed your booking in the wrong category on initial booking and the same team member coincidentally checked you in and should have picked up...

Last weekend we visited the White Cliffs Hotel in St Margaret at Cliffe near Dover. Perfect place to explore Kent and the cliffs. Very nice hotel and owner who gave us a warm welcome. Also a stay with a big dog like ours was not a problem. Good food and atmosphere in the restaurant. Room and bathroom could have been... More

What a fantastic find. We booked a last minute, 2-4-1 deal for 2 nights in the four poster room. Lovely room, friendly and attentive staff. Fabulous and reasonable priced food. Breakfast buffet excellent and hot breakfast addition was very high quality. Our baby loved the freshly baked croissants. A beautiful area with lots to do, we will return. Only tiny... More

Booked at short notice, looking for a dog friendly hotel, and had a great surprise. Excellent dinner in restaurant, really good night's sleep in the "Pines" family apartment and very good quality continental breakfast. The interior decoration in the dining room is beautuiful, and there the atmosphere is very relaxed. Would come again.

The hotel looks so pretty when you get to the lovely village of St Margrets at Cliffe the hotel looks like it belongs on a film set. A collection of buildings including the cutest mews cottages. The family are very hands on offering a very warm and welcoming experience. The Sunday lunch was what you hope for when you go... More

Had a great 2 nights at this lovely hotel. The hotel is old so some of the floors slope but this adds to its charm. The bed was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. There was a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Had a meal in the restaurant one night which was delicious.
