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... More

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... More

£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... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

The location was good, the room was clean, breakfast was good, owner was very friendly. But the room was very small. Too smal for two adults and suitcases. The beds were also very small. The same for the bathroom. Very small Next time we wil stay somewhere else.

Margarita, the owner, was the friendliest, most helpful owner we have ever dealt with at a B&B. We were there for 6 days, and when she saw how much luggage we had she moved us to a larger room. Everything was spotless, she spent a lot of her time cleaning! Breakfast was excellent. The continental was plenty-cereal, yogurt, croissants, fruit... More
