We stayed here last weekend. The staff were really friendly and accommodating but everything is very tired and not like the pictures on the website. The views are lovely. If I was in the area again I would stay at Rocksalt rooms which are the same price but offer so much more. Expensive for what he hotel offers. Collapse

We stayed here for two nights on a Groupon deal (2 Nights for Two with Breakfast, Bottle of Prosecco and 4-Course Tasting Menu on First Night) for £185. We found it to be excellent value. I paid a little to upgrade and - on the day - was upgraded to the De Pamier Suite which was spacious and very nice. This is a restaurant with very good rooms, 10 minutes from Diver and Folkestone. It is very good for what it is and, like others, I agree there are a few niggles but nothing untoward. The evening meal was very good, well cooked and presented - no choices, no beef\steak but a good variety and that's what you look for in a tasting menu; the wines were of a good choice and price and the service was friendly and attentive. Breakfast was a small, but very good, selection for the continental and a freshly cooked Full English was included. Not sure why they charge extra for Eggs Benedict but not an issue for me as the Full English was excellent. Fresh tea\ coffee and toast - and Wilkins Tiptree Jam\ Preserves (always the sign of a quality establishment). I did look at the A la carte menu for the second night but really fancied something like Steak and Chips and was surprised that no such option. 2 or 3 fish courses, lamb, pork etc but again no steak. So we popped into Dover. We had a few niggles in the room - lightbulbs, tap and not big issues but should\ could be easily rectified. I also agree that the niggle was a tip. I left some money after each meal on th etable. I didn't check the bill in detail on departure and - only when I got home - did I realise that a gratuity charge had been added as well. Probably not right as it should be my choice. Overall a good 2-day stay to explore the local area at the price we paid. We would return if another such deal comes up. Collapse

Stayed here for two nights on a groupon deal. After readin some of the reviews was a little apprehensive. But there was no need, I really don’t know what some people are thinking when writing reviews, sure there are some teething problems like anywhere but some comments are way over the top. The good, well we had a standard room which was adequate and with a comfy bed. The food was pretty good although the tasting menu there were no choices on any of the courses. The a la carts for the second night maybe was a little expensive. But tasty. My only gripes are with it being a five star hotel the little maintenance jobs should be done when reported for instance in our room there wasn’t a handle on the window so had to use pliers to shut it. And the toilet roll holder was nearly falling off the wall. Little things but easily rectified. But the worst for me was a gratuity charge on my bill for buying drinks... big. NO NO. They took it off when I questioned it. But all said and done we had a very enjoyable stay, and will probably return. Collapse

I've stayed in Everden room for one night on the way to France. We've arrived quite late but still managed to have a dinner in the restaurant. Unfortunately both room and dinner were very disappointing. Firstly, the room door handle doesn't work, you have to turn the key to close it, and then there is no lock on the patio door at all. The light bulbs next to bed and in the bathroom are dead, however you can still see the hanging cobwebs above the bed. All the walls are dirty and there is another world behind the bath. We also didn't enjoy the bouncy bed. Overall the room felt very badly kept and in urgent need for spring cleaning and some maintenance. The dinner and breakfast were also disappointing. We had two course meal for dinner with one beer each. For breakfast there is a very basic selection of the continental breakfast, with cooked english or eggs benedicts at additional price. The total bill came to £220. Absolutely not worth it! Collapse
