At first sight it is getting a little tired (carpets etc) but the proprietor, Debbie, is moving on some time. If you aren't stand-offish you will enjoy your stay - she is very lovely, chatty and informative and the communal breakfast table is a great ice-breaker. The room was extremely comfortable and clean with a good en-suite and tea/coffee stuff...

By the time we left, it seemed that we had known each other for ages. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The shower and TV worked...

As far as B&Bs go, we thought this one was excellent. Our host (Debbie) allowed us to check in early and gave us a full run down of the dymchurch area. Cooked breakfast was served at 8.30-8.45am each day and the rooms are what you would expect to get at a "B&B".

We declined breakfast as we were shown the dining room and realised that it was a community affair which didn't suit us it was also a set time for everyone if was served early...
