A lovely b and b in an excellent position. Our room was delightful. Breakfast was most enjoyable. The pub 10 yards away is a must. Serving outstanding food. The grounds of the hotel are extensive and would be lovely in the warmer months.

Laston House is a beautiful period property. The hosts very friendly and only too willing to give advise on places to visit. Breakfast... More

Rooms are comfortable with original features and vintage furniture and best off all - many of the rooms have sea views. The rooms have modern electric heaters which are individually controlled.

We stayed at Laston House in March 2016 for my big sisters Wedding down at the Tunnels. Arrived after a very long drive from south east London.
