The amazing history, its a unique building with a private car park. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is so central.
Its a bit different. This is really a golf club with a bunch of cabins/cottages. Beautiful grounds. The food is OK. The place isn't close to anything. Its 20 minutes to Canterbury or Dover. That said, its quiet and relaxing.
I was thoroughly impressed with the hotel and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The hotel itself is also very impressive - I'd had no idea it was so old! It's in a great location too. My only gripe (and its a tiny one!) is that my room did not have a full-length mirror for getting ready ...
Perfect location; nice room with ensuite. Good choice for breakfast.
