    accomadation excellent breakfast unacceptable e.g eggs and tomatoe uncooked bacon and mushroms burnt.

    food bar service no drinks after 9.50pm

    the location was great with a short walk to the cliffs to see the channel and ports. A real country inn not a square box with a shower ! slept extremly well ready for the day ahead.

    If we have to complain it would be that the meal was a bit expensive for what was presented, but we have had a lot worse in 5 star hotels.

    They very kindly let us in the room before 2pm so we could watch the Grand Prix. That's service ! Thanks

    The location of hotel is good, overlooking sea with pleasant country walks along coastal path. We were allocated a very small attic type room, Nearby Folkestone is unfortunately very tired and old fashioned, and you needed to travel to Sandgate for a more pleasant area. Dover Castle is a must to visit.

    The Hotel is a little tired and our room was small and pokey, OK for a couple of days, but no more.

    The location and the fact they did have a family room.

    The restaurant bill wasn´t itemised and in fact was incorrect. The additional side orders were not listed on the menu, and 4 pounds for a childrens portion of chips is excessive.

    Its hard to say we only stayed for 1 nite but not to bad

    We paid for no-suite but the shower was not complete they did move us to another room then had to sort out the lights in bathroom .

    We were pleasantly suprised by this charming hotel. Our family sized room was large, airy and spotlessly clean, it was room 1, we also had a look at room 2 sea view again large airy and clean. The food we had was very good and well presented. Hotel decor a bit tired in places. We thought the deal we got through Booked.net was excellent value for money. Thanks!

    Lighthouse Inn has a pleasant and relaxing atmohsphere similar to a Bed and Breakfast. View of the English Channel was simply breath taking. Staff is hospitable and pleasant. I would definatly return for another visit.

    The staff was very kind and the food was excellent.

    The room was so extremely cold, that we could just as well have slept in the car. I suppose that is due to bad isolation since the radiator was turned on.

    Greeted in a very friendly manner and allowed into our room early for our convenience. Service was excellent.

    We were promised a favourable rate for the "Mansfield Wedding" which was not given even after requested. Apart from that we thought the room rate was fair.

    The first room we were offered was absolutely awful...tiny, poky room with a big chunk of wallpaper falling off the wall. The bed was tiny...look like a large single and the room felt cold but the staff happily changed it for another room which was lovely. Big bright and airy with a king size bed.

    As above. The Lighthouse needs to renovate the rooms over the other side of the hotel urgently as I do not think they are in a fit state to put people in at present.

    The fact we had only booked one night.

    They did not have us down as a booking, luckily they had a spare room. We had booked a sea view but they were unable to give us a room with a view other than that of a sprawling caravan site at the rear of the building. Very limited food choice available, basically nothing fresh, just frozen, so we ate elsewhere.

    A great hotel with exellent value for money.We stayed for 1 night on our way to an early dover ferry.I would stay here again any time as room was large and very clean.
