Ideally located a 10-15 minute Drive to the ferry terminal this was an excellent place to stay. The accommodation for 5 of us was well appointed and reasonably priced. There is food available at the pub, typical pub grub, ample portions. The pub is right on the edge of the main road which is fairly busy at times but did... More

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and was greeted with a warm welcome by a lovely lady at the bar. She was the owner who looked after everyone throughout the evening and the following morning. The meal we had that evening was superb, as was breakfast after a good night's sleep in a very lovely comfortable room. We have already... More

The welcome was very warm and welcoming. The room was very clean and tidy, the bed very comfortable. We had dinner there and the food was delicious. We both slept very well and in the morning had a very nice full English breakfast. I will be recommending the five bells and will be staying again.

We were with our three godchildren and had failed to get dinner in the local St Margaret's Bay restaurants - Sooo we headed towards Deal and fell over this Pub/Hotel and popped in. We were not disappointed - The venue is well presented with a light and airy dining area, furnished with proper linen and cutlery. The menu mas moderately... More

Stayed here recently with friends. Wayne and Shelley were accomadating and very friendly prepared to go the extra mile to please. Our room was a little too warm but turning down the radiators and flinging open windows soon sorted that. Nice additions to room including ginger nuts with the hospitality tray. Food prepared and cooked by shelley was lovely. Only... More

We were greeted by Wayne and were shown to our apartment. We had chosen to stay in the one bedroom apartment and were impressed with the overall cleanliness of the property. Upstairs bedroom with en-suite (and toiletries - a nice touch), downstairs one large room which accommodates two sofas, a kitchen area with small fridge, microwave and oven top plus... More

Had a fab roast here with the family today. Nothing was too much trouble and their attention to detail was good, even down to the lovely white linen napkins! My starter was pate, which was good followed by roast pork and then a selection of cheeses. There was an appropriate pause between each course to allow us to catch our... More

We scoured the internet for hours trying to find a hotel close to the Folkestone crossing to split up our long journey that wouldn't break the bank for 5 people. This place certainly fit the bill and was only a 20 minute drive from the crossing. We booked the 1 bed apartment as it enabled us all to stay together... More

Not expensive but very ordinary pub food. The service was below par we waited a long time between courses and the table was not cleared of empty glasses and plates which were left on the table and the used cutlery was not replenished. This might have been acceptable if it had been busy but there was only one other table... More
