Good Hotel Guide Review

Close to the cliffs of Dover, this white-painted countryside restaurant-with-rooms is an excellent stopping point on the way to the Channel Tunnel, and a destination in itself. Manager David Harris (for Bespoke Hotels) is now at the helm. Smartly decorated, it has exposed brickwork, wooden floors, contemporary fabrics and furnishings. Book a table for chef Andrew King’s seasonal à la carte dishes, or to sample his Kent-inspired four- and seven-course tasting menus. (Vegetarian menus are available.) Afterwards, stay the night in a modern bedroom – each room has a ‘large, comfortable’ bed and underfloor heating; some have views over the Alkham valley. Rooms at the back are quietest. Extensive breakfasts; afternoon tea; Sunday lunch. Lounge/bar, restaurant (closed Mon lunch); small garden. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Civil wedding licence. Background music. Children (no under-8s in restaurant) welcomed. On a busy road 4 miles W of Dover. 10 bedrooms (1 suitable for disabled; 3 rooms in 2 cottages, 3 mins’ drive away). Per room B&B from £99, D,B&B from £179.

Guest comments

'Big, comfortable room. Really excellent food. Very friendly staff, one of whom made a good non-alcoholic cocktail for me. This is a really excellent hotel. Our second visit, there will be more! ' - Peter Anderson - August, 2013
'Busy restaurant-with rooms. Very trendy. Slick, professional, well run. Menu unchanging, small portions. Poor bedside lighting. Busy road - quietest roons at back. ' - - May, 2012
