“A home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

As a distant worker, operating in Kent but living in Bucks I have done my share of testing B&Bs in the South East. This is my favourite! Dot and Geoff welcome you into their home with warmth and care. The rooms are spotless, facilities good and you can work or relax in peace and quiet. The Royal Oak pub 5 mins away serves good Harvey's beer from Sussex and does decent food. Do save some space though for Dot's Full English - a real treat. I have stayed regularly at the Amadis for the last six months. It is to be recommended.

we booked this b&b for an overnight stay while visiting university. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the rooms well decorated. We stayed in the twin room, which may not be the best room as was under the eaves and thus quite small, we banged our heads several times when getting off the beds. The room was very clean and nicely decorated with comfy beds, but there was no real wardrobe space, the only hanging space was under the eaves and thus was only about 3 feet tall, fine for an overnight stay as we didn't unpack our bags but maybe not for a longer stay.
Breakfast was well cooked and very tasty
as stated on other reviews it was very hard to find in the dark even with a satnav- we drove past it 4 times before we eventually spied the sign- maybe a light outside or visible house number would be a good idea

I have to agree with the other reviewer that I think Alex F's review is unfair. I really cannot understand the comments about the twin room. I have stayed here, in the aforementioned twin room a few times, both by myself and once with a relative and found it very cosy. Dot and Geoff who run the B&B couldn't do more for you, and the place is clean and cosy. I also think Blean village is a lovely little place with beautiful country walks nearby and a beautiful church. The b&b is on a main road but I find it very quiet - much quieter than where I live which is on a side street so I can't understand the complaint about noise. There might be a little traffic noise during the day but at night, hardly any. It seems to me as if Alex F and friend must have got out of bed the wrong side during their stay! The room is a fine size for me. Maybe it wasn't the room that was too small - perhaps the reviewers were too big?!

Lovely hosts but not a pretty country village we had thought from description room & bathroom spotless but our twin room was small - low eaves cramped & dated decor Also some traffic noise ( although we are both used to very quiet roads so some may not notice noise as much ) A shame as breakfast good too. Fine for a stop over but not as a get away place in itself.

Room Tip: Make sure you dont get the twin room at the front with the eaves!

I don't wish to pedantic but Blean is classed as a country village wthin the 'Parish of Blean'. I am also sorry that the room did not conform to your high standards. I shall endeavour to put right the points you have so aptly made. However I will also take heart from the previous guests and there very complimentary reviews
