“A good place to stay.”
Reviewed July 20, 2010

The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The owners were happy for me to have my well behaved German Shepherd Dog in the room. Breakfast was a help your self continental style, ( no set time) laid out on trays on a table in a central landing area. It consisted of choice of cereals some fruit, yoghurt's, fruit juice fresh milk kept in a fridge. croissants and muffins preheated in an oven set on a timer were also available, and a cafetiere of fresh coffee.
We stayed for two nights, we had a good meal at The Kings Arms in Sandwich, and a good meal at Mortons in Minster village, I understand you can also arrange to have a cooked breakfast at Mortons.
I would definately like to stay again at Durlock Lodge, possibly trying one of the self catering units next time.

This delightful 18th century Durlock Lodge, with self-catering accommodation comprises a 2-bedroomed cottage– one with a four-poster – (sleeping 4+2) plus a 2-person studio, in a quiet village location of Minster with a railway station with direct services to London.

There's no breakfast provided, but there's an electronic oven with a timer, so guests can enjoy hot rolls with their morning coffee.

The renowned Bell Inn and three restaurants are all within a five-minute stroll.
.
Owners, David & Nicky Sworder, are former restaurateurs and will recommend local places to visit and eat.

An ideal location for exploring the costal towns of Broadstairs, Margate and Ramsgate -collectively known as the Isle of Thanet, separated from the rest of Kent by the Wantsum.

The local tourist office will even organise a local volunteer to show your around for free:

A few miles away is ‘White Cliffs Country’ including the coastal towns of Sandwich, Deal and Dover.

The locality offers traditional bucket-and-spade family holidays and a wealth of upmarket tourist attractions.

Super nice and helpful folk! Very comfortable room. Charming village. My daughter loved the "fluffy chickens," (bantams) in the yard. A very comfortable stay. I wished I had stayed longer!

We booked three nights at Durlock Lodge, very last minute as the weekend was going to be sunny.

We arrived on motorbikes and the owner wasn't phased which was good. In fact he told us to park them on the garden path which was behind a high wall and gate which kept them out of sight, although it doesn't seem a dodgy area at all.

We actually ended up in the self-catering apartment which has its own door and is completely self-contained with the previously mentioned garden.

The place was clean, tidy and well equipped and the bed was comfy - just right for a short stay.

Durlock Lodge is actually in the village of Minster, just outside Ramsgate, and the village is just the right size for us, with three pubs, Indian, Chinese and Italian restaurants, plus a convenience store open until 9.00pm. We were slightly worried that it would be a bit of a "strangers don't come round here" type of place but in fact the people were lovely and very friendly.

It was an easy walk to the train station, which we used one day to get to Canterbury when it rained. It's also an easy distance to Dover and the Castle.

We would be happy to go back.
