“We Will Be Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We booked the hotel on a whim..we live locally but wanted a break away. We had such a fab time that we wished we had the time to stay longer! We had A spa treatment each at the sister hotel up the road which was fab, then we headed back to the hotel to chill out, The room was clean, well decorated and just what we needed, very quiet too! the reception and all staff were top notch, friendly, accommodating and easy to chat to. Lots off little extras like papers in the morning, etc really made us feel special :) The food in the restaurant was amazing, we are massive foodies and where impressed, the breakfast had a great selection and we were very well looked after from start to finish. We literally have nothing bad to say, we wondered along to the local pubs in the evening (all of them!) and felt welcome at all times :) We where gutted that we couldn't stay longer and we are planning to go back in a month or two..It was perfect for us, People that moaned about this hotel need to live a little and lighten up! we headed to the cliffs for a brisk walk the next day too, a brilliant cheap day out with some stunning views, Thanks for a great stay

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which overlooked the back garden, very peaceful and plenty of room

Stayed for 1 night. Staff were friendly & welcoming, breakfast was great. Nice to find a hotel where dogs are allowed - especially in the breakfast room. Only disappointment were the other guests who decided to have a very loud conversation outside our window with the guy in the room next to us at 2am - but this was no fault of the hotel :-)

Had a really wonderful evening at The White Cliffs. It's a gem hidden away. The food was superb and we had a very good wine with it. Really lovely peaceful rooms and spectacular location. The staff service was also superb.

Room Tip: Front rooms are noisier.

Just got back from a 2 night stay here with my husband, had a fantastic time !!!
Staff are great, lovely and chatty make you feel very welcome...
We had a mix up with are booking and are room was upgraded at no extra cost to us, food in the restaurant is 5 star, delicious.
Breakfast is continental with a small charge for a cooked breakfast which is fine, can't really grumble at £2.50 for free range and local produce.

Would reccomend this hotel to anyone & can't wait to go back in November with are children.

Room Tip: 10 minute drive to Dover ferry port, ideal for an over night stop or a lovely get away break.

The room was slightly tired, but exceptionally clean.

The staff and welcome we're exceptional... Thank you Katie. Two mature and two dogs were no trouble at all. 3 Nights, and. We were not disappointed, except one slow breakfast. But then I am being picky. Food was very good throughout our stay and we will definitely return.

Spent last weekend at The White Cliffs Hotel and had a great time. We went with another 3 couples and a dog all four rooms were great.
Breakfast could not be faulted and we ate in the Restaurant on the Saturday which was lovely. Staff are very friendly and would highly recommend this hotel.

Pet friendly lovely little hotel reasonably close to Dover and convenient for overnight before an early crossing. Good quality rooms and excellent breakfast - evening meal a little limited but staff and service very good and attentive. Would certainly stop here again
