Stayed for 2 nights this weekend. Always lovely to see Margaret, the guest house is always spotlessly clean and very welcoming. There are many good pubs & restaurants close by, spoilt for choice. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Margaret made me feel very welcome and provided a parking space. Spacious and well cared for room at the top of the house overlooking Hythe. Plenty of places to eat and Margaret made some help suggestions. The sea about 5 minutes walk away. Robert Williams, Hertfordshire

This was my second visit and we received the same warm welcome as my previous visit. Margaret made myself and my friend feel at home the moment we stepped through the door. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished, and with very comfortable beds. Every effort was made to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. My friend had...

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...

What a find this place was, an impressive building literally yards from the bus stop and carpark at the western end of Hythe High Street. Margaret was very welcoming and helpful.

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 recently just for one night as we were visiting family .... how can I possibly add anything else, save to say that I endorse every wonderful comment previous posters have made!!!! Loft room was spotless and Margaret could not have been more helpful ..... all in all probably one of the best B&b's we have ever stayed in...
