Good location for this lovely guest house with decent room and comfortable beds and a cosy en-suite. Coffee facilities, a good flat screen TV and a tasty (but limited) breakfast meant an overall good stay and one we would repeat.

This is my second visit and I will visit again. The location is close to the train station, close to the city centre. You will receive excellent service from the lovely host, nothing is too much trouble. Yes the the single room is small, yes the shower room is very small, however it serves its purpose, and yes the room...

I booked two single rooms at a very low price (because reviews were good) and it was fantastic value. En suite rooms, very clean, and quiet in spit of being next to the road. The owner was so helpful, and I wish I could have stayed longer. Just go there!

Enjoyed a good stay here whilst visiting relatives, walking the coastal paths between Folkestone and Dover and visiting local tourist attractions. The owners were all helpful and friendly, gave me a good breakfast every morning and my room was clean and tidy and kept well replenished with water during the hot weather. They even provided me with a fan to...

We stayed for one night before travelling to France. Having looked at previous reviews, we were expecting something much better. The room was extremely small with a musty smell and very dated. The beds were very lumpy and pillows hard. Whilst the owner was kind and helpful, this did not make up for a total lack of sleep. Room was...

£90 for one night for a family of five , no breakfast inc. The room was very clean , but very small and straight in from the front door. The room wasn't real suitable for five people, as it was very small. The ensuite was a cupboard with a shower unit and toilet combined....something I've never seen before.... There are...

We stayed in a family room for one night. The owner rang us the day before our visit to ask what time we were arriving and let us know that an early arrival would not be a problem. On arrival the owner was incredibly friendly and showed us to our room. It was fresh and clean with a double bed...

Margarita is the most friendly and most helpful host you could ever ask for, nothing is too much trouble. The house is very clean and tidy. The room is a tad small however it has a comfortable bed, the one downside is the very small bathroom, so if you want a bigger bathroom this is not the place for you,...

We stayed at this guest house on the 31st of August 2015 paying £81 for 1 nights stay. We stayed in the family room with 4 people (4 people in our 20s) in total on the top floor. We dealt with a Chinese/Asian lady upon arrival who was really really nice, we had to set off for the ferry at...
