We had a marvelous stay at the Old School Lodge, the lodge was perfectly accomodated, the interior was very nice, the WIFI connection was very good. The lodge is in Newington, just next to Folkstone but you don't notice anything of the city, it's peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

“Perfection!”

The Old School Lodge is a charming getaway for two - private and cosy but with everything you need. Fresh flowers were on the table on our arrival, tea and biscuits were waiting.. A home from home but with all the peace and solitude needed for a real break. The only problem about giving an honest review is that it will be hard to book in future! Excellent value and service.

“Lovely warm welcome in perfect quiet location”

We stayed at the Old School Lodge for a month whilst our new home was being refurbished. It was a pleasure to get back to this quiet little corner of Newington each day and away from the chaos and mess. Everything we needed was provided, including newly installed WiFi. We received a very warm welcome with flowers and wine, despite being hours late. We found Jane and Jamie very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely recommend the Lodge to our friends and family in future. The location would be perfect for the night before or after a channel crossing.
Buster also says "thanks for the welcome treats and I really enjoyed playing ball on the big lawn. The nearby country walks were great".

“Lovely Little Place”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We booked the lodge for a weekend stay coupled with day trip to France and were not disappointed, The booking agent waited at the property until we arrived and did not leave until she was sure that we were comfortably settled. The property itself offered all that you could possibly want for accommodation, even down to the washer dryer. The location is quiet but close enough to both the Channel Tunnel and Dover to allow you the luxury of not rushing to meet travel deadlines and is also close to local facilities such as supermarkets/petrol stations. Would recommend to any couples looking for peace and quiet with the flexibility to either tour Kent or move further afield to France,.

Perfect proximity to the Channel Tunnel for our trip to Paris. Tasteful decor, peaceful, charming surroundings, very comfortable double bed, modern kitchen was everything we wanted for self-catering. Parking was easy on the driveway. Jane was super-helpful meeting us to hand over the key & show us around.
We have already booked to stay again during the summer : )
