Quaint hotel - no idea how many rooms - ours was on the front near a busy road but still slept really well. Rooms clean and tidy although maybe a little dated for some - I believe that this is reflected in the price. From what I can gather this hotel has new owners (Tony) and if it was him... More

Booked this hotel as convenient for shuttle. Staff unhelpful, more interested in Euro 16 on TV!. Breakfast supposed to be served from 7.30. No sign of anyone so had to miss breakfast. Room v clean but bed well past its best! Advertised to have Restaurant next door but restaurant closed. Not recommended.

We booked an executive room and were given the key to a chalet room, (which is apparently an executive room). Mis-matched furniture, old and tired. A terrible damp smell coming from a dirty bathroom. The next room we were shown was equally as bad so asked for a refund. Rude and aggressive manager said we shouldn't have booked if we... More

The bedroom was tiny and dirty with power lead hanging out of the wall. One very old small towel. One rather well used pillow, two tea bags but only one tiny milk carton. Shower room was old and in need of serious modernisation. Breakfast didn't happen. Was told it started at 7.30 but by 7.50, everything was still locked up... More

At 17.00 hotel door was locked. Sign says ring bell. There were three with two additional bells which were broken and not working. Tried the door again and using two... More

Stayed here just for one night. Staff were really accomodating and made changes to booking without any hassle. Room was nice and warm. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Ensuite shower room was good. Dont know why people are giving such bad reviews. Would definitely stay again. Great value for money. Thanks for a great stay.

This is a budget hotel but with a first class chef! I have stayed frequently over the last two years and found the Manager helpful and friendly. The rooms are functional, it's handy for Ashford, the Channel Tunnel and not far from Dover, but the reason I keep returning is that it is inexpensive but with great food!
