“Fabulous place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed at Molland for five week days in September and frankly we were bowled over by both the house and the location as well as our hosts Traci and Steve. First the house: if you favour standard eurobox modern then the house will be a novel experience for you. The bedroom/en suite was modern, luxurious and comfortable and the dining/breakfast room is a pleasant mixture of country house and Victorian styles. All of the foregoing is fitted around the medieval/Tudor architecture of the house. We loved the contrasts of modern standards and convenience dovetailed with the quirkiness of the building. The location: nicely tucked away in its own grounds and very quiet. The nearest civilisation is Sandwich where you can experience the full on bizarre layout of a medieval town centre. Beware they roll the streets up in Sandwich at 1730 during weekdays. Traci is the person to get advice from about places to eat in the immediate area including Sandwich. The hosts: I can only echo the comments of Helen C, Traci and Steve are brilliant, friendly and attentive - if only more hosts were like them........! Are there any negative points? Watch out for the wasps, for us they were ever attentive but maybe it was just the time of year. On your arrival Traci will brief you on the breakfast routine - PAY ATTENTION! Breakfast is ordered the night before and you will be asked to nominate the time you want to eat it. My advice is to be there on time as your breakfast will be. Overall verdict - we loved it and the acid test is would we return? Absolutely.

Stayed for a couple of nights, but would have loved to have stayed for longer. Our room was spacious, extremely clean and comfortable while our ensuite was quite luxurious! Gorgeous area, many things to do. Best hotel I've stayed in! Tracy and Steve were brilliant, friendly hosts, who came to our every need. In the mornings, breakfast was not only delicious, but well prepared, and was speedily delivered. Am certain about return, the sooner the better! Thank you Manor House.

I stayed here as a short mini break with my partner, and from the second i stepped through the door, I was amazed. Tracy and Steve were brilliant, friendly hosts, and our room was absolutely perfect, with wonderful furnishings and an incredibly comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was not only delicious, but well organized so that we got our food the second we stepped downstairs. When we came home after visiting Dover Castle later in the day, we found we were able to order Tracy's home cooked meals, and again, my partner and I were gobsmacked as to how brilliant the food was. Throughout, we were utterly impressed by this beautiful B&B and I can guarantee we will be back next year. Thank you, Tracy & Steve

We stayed at Molland's my partner ,our little girl and myself only for a night on Saturday the 7 th of September and had a great time though too short !! I love the area ,it 's countryside and not far from Sandwich that we could not visit unfortunately.The manor is lovely inside ,I love the old fashions ornaments,cutlery,furnitures.Our bedroom was perfect and there was everything we needed (coffee,tea,biscuits,fruit basket, 2 tiny bottles of scotch too!),the room had a settee ,quite big screen television,a comfortable bed,a beautiful bathroom with Jacuzzi.The owner made sure guests do not miss anything I suppose ,as I found opening some porcelain boxes ,cotton buds,cotton wool, opening drawers sewing -kit,hairdryer and so on.You will find a microwave in the corridor and cutlery if needed.We had a dinner later on and we ate some fish and salad for me,it was delicious and I was not hungry after it! Monsieur had a steack ,we were delighted,the wine was nice too. For breakfast on sunday morning,there was an English breakfast served and kippers . We were very welcome and felt like at home ,with a hint of luxury ! we will make sure we come back! Thanks Molland Manor House! Marie,Joe,Félicie.

Molland Manor is an historic building with some fascinating features, within easy reach of plenty of interesting sights. My room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was good, furnished with very high quality toiletries. Breakfasts set you up for the day. On 2 nights, I ate 'at home' with meals cooked by Tracy. Good food; good prices. Because I'm travelling on a longer trip, I appreciated the wash/dry (with bonus iron) service. There is plenty of parking. Tracy and Steve are very friendly and hard-working people. Good all round.
