Stopover on our way to Switzerland, only 30 minutes from the tunnel. The owners were very friendly and accomodating, rooms were clean, ample car parking. The breakfasts are to die for and set you up for the day.

I stayed at Downsview recently for 12 nights while studying at ABDO College in Godmersham. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants somewhere to stay near ashford/canterbury, especially for ABDO students, it's only 10mins drive to the college and there is a kitchen with microwave available to make your own quick meals in the evening and eat in...

We stayed for just one night ahead of a trip to France. Plenty of off-road parking, very handy for a cherished classic car. Our front facing family room (for two) so had plenty of space, very smart bathroom, and everything worked properly. Very cordial welcome from Martin and Sue (?) Breakfast offering was extensive if you want it, but the... More

We stayed at Downsview for a night before getting the eurotunnel. The hotel is great and very conveniently located. We had a room with a double bed and a single bed for our daughter. The room was very spacious, clean and well equipped with a large en-suite. The hotel is set in lovely grounds with ample parking and the garden... More

Disappointingly there was no-one at the hotel to greet us and the room keys were left in envelopes on the desk at reception. Room was nice with a large and comfortable double bed. Small fridge available and was a great addition to chill the complimentary water on such a hot day. Bathroom could have done with some shelves or storage... More

Stayed for 2 nights in July. Friendly welcome and a spacious, clean, comfortable room with en suite bathroom. Fantastic views of the Downs from our bedroom and the gardens. Freshly cooked breakfast and excellent service. Ample free parking and wifi. Have already booked to stay here again. Would highly recommend.

On our way back to the Eurotunnel stopped in this very nice hotel. The room was a family size one for the three of us. Nicely equipped with tv and watercooker and small fridge. A bit of road noise but with the fan on and the windows ajar we slept great in the comfortable beds! Found out only the next... More

Friendly reception, easy book in service. Rooms were more than adequate and comfortable. We had a room that overlooked the downs so was a lovely view. Breakfast was excellent and the price overall was good. Excellent place to stay when coming over from France on the train. We would certainly recommend the accommodation. Free wifi and parking which is a... More

Lovely place, large en quiet rooms, very friendly owners: When I asked for it, the nice and funny lady of the house took her car and rushed away to get me plain yoghurt for breakfast! How sweet is that!

Friendly reception, efficient at arrival and at departure. Clean room, all possible facilities including WIFI. I chose the full English breakfast and was not disappointed. I would certainly recommend and stay again for either business or pleasure. My only comment would be that I could infrequently hear my neighbour flicking the plug socket switches, but not so much that it... More
