“Good Pre-cruise hotel”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

We stayed here the night before our cruise and enjoyed it. We left our car there for the duration. Much nicer and quieter than the hotels in Dover The rooms are fine but not luxurious. We chose a superior room as the standard rooms are basic. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent. The food was very good. We will definitely stay there again before we cruise.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room.

This hotel was great for a stopover to other parts of the south coast. A little overpriced for the accommodation and then added extras for breakfast. The first night we did have dinner and this could not be faulted, excellent. Good location for a village pub crawl. Does take dogs.

Like many others I suspect we prefaced our day trip to Calais with a night at this hotel. We stayed in the excellent family apartment which was clean and freshly painted. The rooms were comfortable enough though sharing 1 bathroom between 4 brings its inevitable problems. We dined in the excellent restaurant which despite having a small menu delivered good food and service. Our only slight disappointment was finding that the inclusive breakfast was only a buffet rather than the anticipated full english - I missed my snorkies!

Room Tip: Excellent service

My husband and I stayed here this weekend for a friend's wedding in Salton Manor, East Langdon. We were arriving late Thursday night and as reception would be closed the receptionist called me at about 6pm that night to give instructions on how to get in, find the room, breakfast times etc, this was extremely helpful. We were also given a complimentary upgrade from the Mews to the four poster room. This room was lovely, spacious and lots of features in the room, beams etc, and lots of storage for clothes, suitcases etc. The bathroom was a good size too, with a bath. My only negative is the shower is a little low and the height couldn't be adjusted. My husband and I aren't tall tall so it didn't really matter but there was copious amounts of hot water to make up for it! The whole room was spotlessly clean too. The next morning, we had a lovely continental buffet breakfast, a great selection of things to choose from - I was pleased you had the Dorset cereals! Reception kindly booked a taxi for us and friends of ours, who were staying the Friday night, to the wedding. The next morning at breakfast the men were feeling the effects of the night before and staff were very friendly and attentive, one brought a jug of iced water to the table, thank you! It must have been obvious they were suffering! :-)
All four of us had a great stay which topped off a fantastic weekend. We would definitely recommend to friends and if we're in the area again we'll be back. Thank you!

This is a quaint hotel with a personal touch. We stayed fo dinner bed and breakfast. It was cosy, relaxing and the food was lovely. The staff were friendly and it felt like home from home. We liked the furniture and the gardens. Perfect for a romantic mini break and also so close to the bay for great walks.

Room Tip: Room 15... Nice layout
