As a last minute idea we booked for a Saturday night. We had a great time - the hotel staff were very warm, friendly and attentive, the food great and our room was clean and very comfy. We loved it so much that we are going back in 2 weeks!

What a lovely hotel in the village of St Margaret's at Cliffe just a few miles from Dover Port. Lots of character, friendly and attentive staff, and delicious food. We loved the attention to detail, and the little extra touches like (glass) bottled mineral water in the bedrooms. Toiletries contained no nasty ingredients and it was obvious they are very... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week away... Our first three nights we spent at white cliffs. We have had a lovely time. I do note some of the reviews... rooms are a little small and perhaps in need of a little TLC - walls do seem thin but didn't bother us as only had a neighbour one night...... More

This was just a random night away for us, and the staff really help provide a wonderful experience. They helped me pick out a special dessert for my boyfriend ahead of time and had it delivered to our room. Reception was lovely and warm when we arrived, and it had the feel of an inn with a bit of bustle... More

Myself and my partner had a Secret Escapes deal for this hotel and were looking forward to having a relaxing night away, this wasn't possible. I didn't go to sleep until 5am(!!) as the walls are paper thin so I could hear everything (I mean everything) that the rooms next to us were doing. Also, I don't think that you're... More

We stayed overnight for my birthday. My husband had been ill and was looking forward to a relaxing stay. The welcome was warm and we were soon seated near the log fire with a welcome drink and sandwiches. Do try the ball park chips- skinny chips with the addition of garlic and parsley. The room was comfortable with quality toiletries... More

This hotel has a lot of character and lots of history. It was really charming and quaint and had a great atmosphere. We ate in the restaurant for dinner and the food was really good and the service was great both in the restaurant and the reception/bar area. The rooms could do with a bit of sprucing up, but they...

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.
