Coaching Inn where Queen Anne stayed on her way to France (so the man in the square said as we had a quiet pint in this lovely English inn. Excellent service, food and clean rooms (but the water pipes rattled a bit) ! I will definitely return

The hotel was in a lovely village with a market on Sunday's. The hotel was very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and we dined there at night. The evening meal was very good and the staff excellent. The waiting staff were absolutely immaculately dressed and the service was also excellent.

Very comfortable room, everything you need incl free wifi. Fresh milk for your tea and coffee if you ask reception, they keep small thermos flasks in a fridge. Very adequate restaurant, good choice of dishes and well cooked and presented.

We ate in the restaurant for dinner and it was wonderfull, breakfast was marvellous. Location is very good and close too London, Windsor / Leeds castle and of course closeby Dover. One thing the hotel could improve... More
