I stayed here on a business trip over the weekend and didn't spend a lot of time at the guest house. The thing is the time I did spend there it really felt like I was coming home. The rooms are super comfortable and nice and the people are really attentive and went out of their way to assist me...

The place was very nice, with its garden so peaceful, perfectly maintained. The room was comfortable and spacious, a place where you feel good. the breakfast was excellent. But the best was probably the warmth of the welcome, the people who really make you feel welcomed by friends.

Absolutely beautiful guest house with gorgeous grounds, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Thoughtful touches like a little decanter of sherry in the room! And the pool was lovely. Very welcoming, would definitely stay again in future.

Accommodation is modern and extremely comfortable. Would definitely visit again. Unfortunately we did not wake up in time for breakfast but the kitchen lady did offer us something to nibble on before we left.

Jim and Hillary make everything a breeze. Helpful advice, lovely and filling breakfast, they were a delight to work with. Our only sadness was that we couldn't stay longer with them. We'll be back! Thanks Jim and Hillary, and peace to all of us in 2017 and beyond! -Alexis, Loren and Kai

Very nice place, and nice people taking care of you. The new house, the swiming pool and the tennis court were perfect for adults and children. Forest Hall is not far from the airport and 15 minutes from the beachfront.

Except for the need for signposting, everything went well. I could not find the place and it was night time. I suggest a sign post at the entrance to Walmer, maybe next to the airport sign. The tendency is to want to drive towards the airport if one is not from the area !
