It's a nice place to be and close enough to Dover. By the water and good bar. Rooms are tad smaller but you get what you pay! Saying that the breakfast lady could be more polite and accommodative to people's needs. A bit of personal touch and caring would go long way.... overall can recommend.

THEY DON'T TAKE DOGS. They advertise that they do. I'm glad I checked the day before I left! Could the owner/manager please change the details that they have given to various sites? At least the lady on the phone was nice.

From the outside we were very surprised that my friend would want to have her wedding here, what a surprise. Excellent accommodation, amazing staff, very friendly and saw to all of our needs. Beautiful room and very good value (huge) breakfast. Would definitely stay again. Thank you very much.
