This hotel is in a great location but for the price I expected much more. Our room (and small double bed) was very small and the window did not open which in July meant we had a stuffy night. The walls and floors of the annexe building are so thin we heard our neighbours' TVs, conversations and footsteps constantly. The... More

Thanks for your review, we're not sure why you couldn't open your windows as all rooms have large opening sash windows. We've been around all rooms this morning and checked to see if any are that are sticking. The hotel is over 400 years old and in hot humid weather the timber-framed buildings can swell. We have sound-proofed all rooms... More

My husband and I visited Dover to meet our daughter's future in laws. The area around the hotel is gorgeous with a lovely walk down to St Margaret's Bay. Dover Castle is amazing. Sandwich was my favourite town, so quaint and picturesque and Broadstairs is good for seaside (but no dogs allowed on the beach May to Sept). We stayed... More

We stayed at the hotel because we were attending the Deal Music Festival (which was excellent). We asked for a quiet room and got one - and very comfortable it was too. One of the comfiest beds I've had the pleasure of using. The staff we found to be approachable and extremely willing to help. We were pleased to note... More

This hotel is perfectly placed for a stay before a Channel crossing, which is why we went there. We had contemplated doing so a few weeks before, but found the staff who dealt with us on the telephone rather unhelpful, so gave it a miss. Indeed, they were little better second time around, but we thought we'd nonetheless give it... More

One night stay before sailing to France. Ran out of food on the evening before sailing, staff arrived late in the morning then no power in the kitchen so no cooked breakfast or coffee. Shame because all the reviews were very positive. I understand the unexpected electric failure but just a little disappointed about the evening meal and lack of... More

I have spoken with the team and established what went wrong with this stay to ensure we don't make the same mistakes again. We managed to restore power to the kitchen after just a few minutes interruption due to a fault and the rest of our guests were able to enjoy coffee and breakfast at 7.15am when we ordinarily open...

A peaceful location with all the comforts required. Restaurant reasonable, bar okay and bedroom comfortable. I stayed for three nights whilst at a conference nearby. It would have got five stars if my room provisions were replaced as required (shampoo and tea/coffee). The three breakfasts were good, one dinner was excellent. The bar had a good stock of bottled real... More

This is a lovely hotel. My Canadian friend and I had one one of the family apartments so we could have a room each. It was perfect with a lovely comfortable kitchenette and sitting area separate to the bedrooms. The staff were all so lovely and the restaurant was great. Breakfast was delicious especially the croissants. A great location in... More

I stayed in the Gull room, last weekend, it was really lovely. The food was excellent, the Romney Marsh lamb and the breakfast was all local food and very well cooked. The hotel itself looks really nice, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. I would suggest you bring your own hairdryer though.

I took my husband away for a night as a treat for his birthday and we weren't disappointed. The room was lovely and clean, the staff very friendly and the food in the restaurant was fantastic (particularly the chocolate brownie!!). I would definitely stay again. The only slight disappointment was that our bed sloped slightly due to the floor, which... More
