I throughly enjoyed my stay at The Old Post Office Guest House this month. The room was very spacious and clean. There was plenty of space in the bathroom and everything was very clean. Margaret, the owner was very pleasant and this added to my very enjoyable stay at this guest house.

The old post office provides outstanding accommodation. My double room, overlooking the High Street, was large, spotlessly clean, full of light and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and every provision was made for the guests' comfort. Margaret, the owner, was very welcoming and made one feel at home immediately. This was my first visit to this guest house... More

Lovely Guesthouse. Spotlessly clean and very welcoming. Comfy bed and really good location, right at the end of the High Street. If you need somewhere reasonably priced in Hythe, then this is the place for you.

We stayed in the loft room, which is large and comfy and was perfect for our needs. The fact you have your own fridge and microwave (and table to eat from) makes it perfect for a longer stay. Margaret couldn't have been more helpful, and I fell in love with Hythe and the surrounding area. Fantastic location, price and comfort... More

We stayed at the Old Post office for one night as we were meeting family for an early Christmas dinner on the High Street. Margaret was very welcoming, ensuring we parked in the right spot and giving us the keys. The room was very comfortable with a nice TV and the DIY breakfast was brilliant. Orange juice, fruit, milk, croissants... More
