We were warmly welcomed by Phil and Linda who were most helpful in booking restaurants and giving us the benefit of local knowledge. A very happy coincidence came to light when it emerged that Linda and Chris had both attended Dover Girls Grammr School although not at the same time. A lovely place to stay.

Our room was lovely with everything in it that you could possibly want and so nicely decorated with an excellent shower room. We had time for a quick dip in the lovely pool before the opening of the bar...
