Booked this place on Booking.com as the Inn's website photos looked as if it was a great place - BIG mistake! We were greeted by Wendy, the owner, to be told that we were in the cottage next door. We had an early suspicion of what was to come as the entrance corridor had flaking plaster and smelt of refuse from the wheelie bins at the end of the corridor. Through the first door where we were faced with a flight of dirty stairs at the bottom of which was an odd slipper, an item of clothing and two fire extinguishers hidden away under the stairs. The room was something else!!! The light switch was behind the door only visible when the door was closed! One of the two dimmer switches operated four of the eight ceiling lights, the other switch did not work but there were only two bulbs out of four fitted. There were two bedside lamps on one side, both without bulbs and one with a dusty lampshade. One lamp was plugged in to the wall socket and switched on but we were unable to reach in and switch it off as it was jammed by a wedged in unit. Reach out in the night and touch the live lamp and dread the result. The dust behind the bed must have been there months as had the cobweb on the ceiling. The glasses on the tea tray were dirty. The bathroom sash window was propped open with a toilet roll and above the mirror were bare electrical wires wound together and held together with green and yellow insulation tape - IN A BATHROOM!!!! If by then you had not electrocuted yourself you ran the risk of the full length, frameless mirror leant against the wall in the bedroom falling and shattering. The windows were filthy with flaking paint. We declined an invitation to dine in their restaurant having seen the cleanliness of the bedroom. We did however have breakfast, we had paid for it and their web site said no cancellation etc. That was good, plenty and well cooked. The dead spider on the window sill did not add to the ambience of their lovely restaurant.
The location is great almost on the beach with great views if you are lucky enough not to have our room that overlooked a bomb site of rubbish. The ONLY good thing was the clean comfy bed.
When we pointed this out to Wendy prior to leaving she said she could not move the bed as she had broken her arm and blamed the dangerous bathroom wiring on the builder. She was getting upset and told me to stop going on. We paid the £75.00 and left, never to return.

Room Tip: The web site apparently shows some nice rooms but it certainly did not show the disaster we stayed in. Avoid at all costs.

Firstly, the inn is in a lovely setting overlooking the beach, lovely sun trap sun terrace. However the staff left a lost to be desired. On arrival, asked for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc but was to would have to have a Pinot as the had to go to shop to get Sauvignon! After ordering our meal in the restaurant which was rather empty for a Saturday night, we were told we were being too curb our noise, by a waitress that had already slammed our drinks on the table. She was extremely obnoxious and I asked to speak to owner who was even worse. So although we had unpacked in our rooms, we decided to leave as there was no way we were going to pay in a place where we had been so badly insulted. Incidentally we are not teenagers, but 4 friends in our 50's! I have since found out that the owner is quite notorious in the area for his rudeness. Perhaps he would be better running a library.

Room Tip: Don't bother!

We have just enjoyed a 2 night stay at this place and it was really good. It is a small family-run business and they were all so friendly & helpful. We had the ground floor room, with an outside decked area, facing the sea, which was lovely as we had really good weather. The room and shower room was very clean & the bed was really comfortable. There was a fridge & kettle, and fresh milk left in the fridge, which was great for making tea/coffees. The landlady cooks a really good full english cooked breakfast which we ate in the restaurant.. The restaurant faces the sea and we also had our dinner there in the evening - the food was excellent and all freshly cooked. Probably best to book your table for this when you check in, as it gets very busy in the evening and is obviously a very popular place to eat. There is a nice little bar area in the pub, where you can sit and relax and have a drink or two! We loved this place and wished we had longer. Its in a good location for exploring the area or Channel crossings.

Stayed here for a night, to enjoy the beauty of Dover. Excellent service with a smile, clean and comfortable room, and delicious food. Even the storm wasn't enough to dampen our weekend.

We were a party of 9 and were given a private room as the restaurant was full. The welcome and service was very good. The have their own micro-brewery as well as several other beers and a nice wine list. The food was very good and the owner came in to thank us for choosing his pub. Altogether we had a very enjoyable evening.
