We arrived at The Marquis on Tuesday, to a friendly greeting. We were advised of the times for breakfast, we mentioned that we were catching an early ferry, a takeaway breakfast was offered and delivered. We ate in the restaurant on Tuesday evening, food was amazing! Our waiter Stephen, was engaging. He talked about the wine and that he had... More

Booked for our Daughter's Birthday Celebration & were disappointed to be told that there was no Pork Belly, which is her favourite. This left only one one other meat dish on menu. Informed Chef, who took time to talk to us, to say that it took 9 hours to cook & another batch was underway. We ordered Lamb, but Chef... More

Just got back from a lovely nights stay here for our wedding anniversary. The room was beautiful and had everything we needed, the complimentary cookies were yummy! The food here is amazing. We had the sunday roast for lunch and sandwiches in the evening, these were served with the most exquisite canapés. The breakfast had a good selection of continental... More

We only stayed for one night and are now wishing we'd stayed a little longer. Dinner and breakfast were faultless, as was our room, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel as a place to stay or just somewhere to go for a great meal.

Could not have been better especially for a discounted offer. Excellent food, excellent helpful staff and excellent "Delux" bedroom with slippers and robes provided. Four course taster menu could not be faulted.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on a deal from travel zoo. The room was light and bright but the bed mattress was way too soft for us. Great to have air con as was a hot day but a few negatives, the sink wouldn't drain when we arrived, there was many stains on the dressing gown... More

I am going to start by saying that I would stay again but my decision is qualified by the many detailed comments which follow. The hotel setting is well outside Dover and the relatively busy Alkham Valley Road requires some care especially when exiting the spacious car park which becomes filled by diners. The surroundings are beautiful and the rooms... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived. ... more   less
