    The Kentmere Guest House proprietor was really friendly and helpful. We had a very early start the next day and she gave us a cool box with a good selection for our breakfast so we didn't miss out. The accomodation is clean, but basic but everything you need for a good night sleep. Would recommend to friends and family and would stay again.

    The owner was very friendly and very helpful. I am wheat intolerant and the owner ensured that she had wheat free bread for me on arrival for breakfast the following day. I found the atmosphere pleasant friendly and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and I would stay at the B and B again.

    Friendly staff, Good comfortable clean room

    the on suite bathroom suffered from low water pressure and was cramped for a large man.

    Clean and comfortable, very friendly hostess.

    The toast had mould on the crust-very unexpected. The car had to be parked on the road and this is not indicated in the details of the hotel. Very tight parking on a busy road.

    Owner was extremely welcoming and courteous - nothing was too much trouble. The room was quite small but this was fairly reflected in the price and as such was good value for money. It was clean and had all the facilties.

    A really friendly, clean guest house. I didn't want to spend much, I just needed to be near to Dover for early the following morning. I chose the Kentmere Guest House because the reviews said it was clean, which for me is one of the most important things. It was spotless. The room and bathroom were small, but then I hadn't paid for space. The owners were helpful and friendly, advising me when I needed to leave to be where I had to be on time.

    I arrived on a chilly May evening and was shown to my comfortably warm room by the friendly couple who run this guest house. My case was carried upstairs for me and brought down again next morning. Ample breakfast in the bright and pleasant dining room. Would definitely go again!

    The beds were comfortable, with good decor. Friendly owner, nice quick service for breakfast.

    The bathroom was itsy bitsy! The shower was luke warm to cold.

    We were greeting warmly upon arrival and helped to our room, which was a nice touch and made us feel welcome. The B&B was perfectly located for trips around the Kentish coast, and during our 3 day stay we visited Dover, Hythe and Deal. Great location but Folkstone is a bit run down. Also, the cooked breakfast was very nice.

    The bathroom was small and cramped and the shower wasn't very powerful.

    Kindness, nearby beach and Leas Cliff concert Hall, good breakfast

    The bath room/shower room is really very small.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The family room was very spacious and had a huge double and two single beds. The bathroom was small but adequate for a one or two night stay. The owners were very welcoming and breakfast was a cooked breakfast with tea, coffee and orange juice and also a yoghurt for my daughter. Location was fine for the town and the beach

    We found out the hotel only has hot water on in the morning and evening which meant some cold showers in the afternoon when coming back from the beach - fortunately there was enough for my daughter to have her shower but not for us parents!
