A traditional B+B - recommended

Posted 14-Jun-2016 on Hotels
I booked it as a stop over before joining the Ferry at Dover . I was warmly welcomed by the owners and the room was very pleasant , and in keeping with the building. The location was good with countryside views from the room. There was no TV in the room , but for me this was not an issue.

You DON'T EXIST After you Check Out!

Posted 20-Feb-2016
Pros: Quiet since it's in the boonies. I can't say enough how unfriendly these guys turn on guests when they pay up the next day!
Cons: Owners should take lessons in customer service and not be so obvious that they dislike the B&B business and do it only for the money.
Location: It's out of the way from anywhere. You will need to take a cab (15 quid) to get to the town or cruise ship port (which is why most come to this town)
Older couple who run B&B have TWO FACES. Smiling when you check-in, hugely unfriendly when you check-out! If you're waiting for a cab or want to hang out an hour after check-out, they WON'T let you hang out anywhere inside....even in the "B&B Lobby"! They put you into the front yard while your waiting for anything or anyone. And it was cold the morning we were exposed. You can see the guy is anti-social and view you as a paycheck nuisance....it certainly wasn't an "us" issue but "them" issue as I witnessed the SAME BEHAVIOR with ALL guests. B&B has some charm but should be AVOIDED due to the unfriendly curmudgeons running the place. Your money is best spent elsewhere.

Close to Dover castle and port

Posted 15-Jan-2016
Pros: Quiet.
Cons: Shower. Tissues in the room.
Location: Dover castle, etc.
The cottage, which is B&B Fathingloe, is located away from the main habitation area of Dover, on a track of land that only a few years ago housed barracks of workers involved in the construction of the Chunnel (so we were told by the hosts). No traces of those barracks remain, the track of land looks like long green fields hemmed in by the road on the one side and a rising earth bank on the other, but a special road was built off the highway to lead there. It is now a private road closed off by a barrier that needs to be moved by hand if one wants to enter. Not a problem in itself, unless you had not been warned about that, arrive in the dark and it's pouring rain... The sign for a turn-off to B&B is also non-existent. We relied on the navigator, but still got it wrong. We were the only guests on Saturday night, but perhaps not a surprise in the middle of January. Welcomed by the hosts with tea and cake, but a little too much of conversation upon arrival. The room (superior en-suite) was spacious, but furnishings decidedly dated. Clean. No television. No tissues. One soap bar and one shampoo. The shower did not work, so we had to put up with separate hot and cold water taps for the bath tub and sink. We arrived late, so decided not to bother the hosts about the shower... but we did miss it on a cold winter night. Slept okay, despite the terrific storm outside. The breakfast was alright, but nothing to write home about. Your regular English fare.

Gorgeous house

Posted 15-Jun-2015 on Hotels
We absolutely loved staying at Farthingloe bed and breakfast. We were greeted with warm smiles and friendly faces. We were also served the most delicious ginger cake ever! Our room was very comfortable and we slept very soundly that night after many hours on the road. Breakfast in the morning was a full English breakfast but there was an option of cereals, fruit and yoghurt. Everything was delicious. I would definitely recommend Farthingloe bed and breakfast to anyone. It was a real treat to stay in this beautiful house with lovely hosts.

Sammy did not feel welcome!

Posted 04-Jun-2015 on Hotels
Despite checking the Hotels.com box for pets and quoted a price we were immediately faced with unexpected additional charges for my dog. We were also sternly quoted the rules we had to abide by, not having the pet on the seats or bed. We had already bought the crate for the dog to be in so we felt a little unwelcome having been asked to leave the lounge area. All in all it became quite an expensive stay with the additional charges and we felt we could not relax. A shame because it is a very nice location.
