We stayed one night here and although the bed was comfortable and the room was pleasant, it was not an experience that I would repeat. When we arrived the lady was out so we went for a walk.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. An overwhelming majority of my other customers have been very happy as can be seen in other online reviews. With regards to the various points mentioned; I ask for guests to leave the keys in the house just in the same way in a classic hotel (i.e.hotels without key-are encoded cards)... More

We spent two nights here in July. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Situated on a hill side above Folkstone with great views. The rooms was clean and well-appointed with very comfortable beds. The cooked breakfast was perfection.

The room we had was at the back with a sitting room included. It had a lovely view over the gorgeous garden. Tea facilities are in the room. A restful nights sleep and... More

A delightful, quiet house B&B with great views of the sea (in front) and a lovely garden yard (in back). The hostess was most kind and obliging, with excellent breakfasts every day. She brought us tea each afternoon and asked about our day.
