My boyfriend and I wanted to visit St Margaret's at Cliffe over the Easter weekend for a little get away to see the White Cliffs. Prior to arriving, the hotel let us know there was a private function on and that the bar/restaurant would be closed the Saturday night. We decided to keep the booking anyway and were not disappointed....

We have been playing in golf tournament in Kent for many years and the owners of our previous hotel retired and closed the hotel. They recommended us to the White Cliffs who could not have looked after us better. The rooms were comfortable, the food and service was excellent and breakfast just what was needed first thing. We had a...

If are looking for a walking or particularly dog walking break, this hotel is friendly, with charm and good location. I'm afraid the food and some less than thoughtful elements let it down a bit. In detail, the staff are great and welcoming to people and dogs, the breakfast is fine, the room we stayed in was charming. They are...

We had a family get-together (there were 12 of us) here recently and the location and the facilities suited us very well. It is well placed for access to St Margaret's Bay and the cliffs at Dover, where there is a very good National Trust café overlooking the harbour.

My last stay at the White Cliffs hotel was in Feb of 2017, but I've stayed there many times since 2012 at various times of the year. The staff are very friendly and I've always recived good service. Although the restaurant's menu is a little limited in selection, the food itself is very good. Breakfast is good, but at first...

I had a very comfortable stay, the hotel has everything you need. At-home feeling, clean room and good breakfast. It feels a bit like B&B because I think every room is different and there are some flats in the field. I didn't do it myself but apparently the hotel has a great access to the seaside path and it could...

My family visit the UK from America yearly. We have friends in the same village where this hotel was located so we gave it a go. Very friendly staff, from the owner on down. Cool Land Rover Defender parked out front with courtesy boots and umbrellas for cliff walks. The locals who frequent the hotel's pub were as friendly as...
