We couldn't agree more with everything said in the 2 previous reviews. Our hosts were charming and very chatty over a welcome cup of tea when we arrived. We were the only guests on the day of arrival but were put into an attic room for a 3-night stay. We were warned not to be alarmed as there was a mad crow that sometimes threw itself at the roof window (which had no blind)! As we are both elderly, the prospect of hauling our luggage 2 floors up the narrow, curved staircase was somewhat daunting, though we were given some help. Our room was, in fact, 'en suite', though the latter was extremely cramped. The shower was adequate but the hand basin was not big enough in which to wash a mouse, let alone anything else, with no space for toilet articles. This, as well as the fluorescent lighting previously mentioned, can be explained by the fact that the building and parkland was once used for offices and temporary units by the company building the Channel Tunnel. We were also very uneasy about the lack of lock on our bedroom door. Cleanliness was somewhat lacking but the thing that rather shocked us both was that this was the ONLY B&B in which we have EVER stayed where the rooms were not serviced at all during our stay. No bed made, no bins emptied no cleaning attempted. The plentiful, off-road, parking, was appreciated. Breakfast on our last morning was positively swimming in fat. This would be a reasonable place to stay overnight and leave one's car when cruising from Dover. We could not recommend longer stays.
