A friendly, spotlessly clean place to stay. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful. Positioned just outside Ashford, this is an ideal base to see the Garden of England. I would recommend Downsview to anyone. Our room overlooked the huge garden which guests can enjoy. The bed was very large and extremely comfortable. Breakfasts were great too.

I had a issue with the heating and the lady was really nice and helpful lovely lady. Then about 12.45 while having a shower the electricity went pitch black I had to get put the shower and find my way out the room in a towel to find someone. After ringing the bell someone finally come I told them the issue and he was so rude telling me to put my mask on in the pitch dark I didn't know where it was. Finally I got power he returned to be even more rude telling me how long I had been in the shower and how he don't care while rudely telling me the time and that he was in bed. Not once did I get a sorry. I could of easily slipped getting out the shower or hurt myself navigating my way in the dark a sorry wold of went a long long way so if you do stay hear don't wake shrek up after 12

Last minute booking, we arrived late at night and were welcomed by Yvonne, and made to feel at home. The room was wonderful, spacious, clean and very relaxing with lovely decor. Tea and coffee in the room which was great for our travel mugs the next morning, after our good nights sleep in our very quiet room.

Stayed here 2 nights in total whilst waiting for my vehicle to be repaired. Superb hosts. Always friendly and accommodating. Rooms well presented and spotlessly clean. Good free WiFi connection.Next to the dining room is a kitchen, fridge and kettle for use by guests. Was even able to use the dining room for my takeaway evening meal. All Covid rules and cleaning are strictly & thoroughly adhered to. Happily recommend to anybody considering a couple of days for either leisure & business.

Chose the Downsview guesthouse for it's closeness to the Channel Tunnel, for our return home. We only stayed for one night, but from start to finish, it was absolutely smashing. The staff were very friendly and always happy and smiling, even in the times of Covid. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with everything a person needs, inc. free Wifi. There is a small bar in the hotel if needed. The breakfast was superb and definitely set us up for our return trip. Would definitely stay here again!
