Spent 2 nights here as we were going to a wedding in the area. I thought I was booking a hotel when I booked but it was a pub. The staff were friendly, and they serve a good breakfast and nice coffee. The room was comfortable, with lovely fresh white towels. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits provided. The whole place good do with a bit of TLC and a good clean up outside. The shower was very poor. On a whole it was fine, we would stay here again if in the area. I would suggest putting fans in the rooms when the weather is has hot as the last few days! 35deg.
The hotel was a pub serving not only travelers but was popular with locals as well. The staff were all very friendly and the pub food was reasonably priced. The room whilst dated was clean and comfortable (well it is an old pub).. The hotel is dog friendly and a short distance up the road is a country park ideal for walking your dogs. The excellent cooked breakfast set us up for the days travelling
ok from the outside and the reception staff were very polite and friendly. The room was, to be polite, dreadful. Damp patches all over, heating on full to mask the smell of damp, the windows appeared to be packed with beermats to stop them rattling (it didn't work), the beds were like bouncy castles, not in a good way, furniture and decor circa 1973. And now the food - oh God the food.. steak and kindney pudding which could double up as an offensive weapon it was so hard, and peas that made me wish I had brought a BB gun with me. Oddly enough I didnt finish my meal and when I complained I was given a 50% discount - just enough for a packet of Gaviscon, so that was lucky. Breakfast was included but I decided to dodge that bullet and find a Maccies instead - for which my digestive system thanked me. All in all not my finest hotel stay and I won't be rushing back... The hotel dog was very nice though.
We stayed here Friday. I don’t even know what to say. Stayed in the twin room. The Shower I couldn’t turn even off, when you turn it round to turn it off it gets stuck & scalds your skin. Both times I showered I had to get my other half to turn it off. So much for trying to save the planet an all. Get your shower fixed, then people wouldn’t waste so much water. Windows have a gap at the top where the frame has dropped. Heating was left on all night which made us wake up with banging heads. Again - CASTLE HOTEL your not helping with Global Warming. Springs in the one of the beds gone, I sunk in it. Spill marks all over the dressing tables & down the front. Other rooms that flushed their loos there was a loud banging that went on for a while. The place smells damp. Carpet is dirty. Breakfast was in a room with no atmosphere (no light music) so everyone was whispering. The waitress as lovely as she was came over & asked our order (no pen & pad), she then came back over asking if we want beans, then come over a second time asking if we want toast. I think if you write things down you don’t need to keep coming back. The breakfast was basic, 2 fried egg, 1 bacon, 1 sausage, half a tomato & 5 (YES FIVE) mushrooms - I just wish I’d taken a photo. Tea cups weren’t that clean. There’s a water bowl for the dog which is rusting (get the poor dog a new water bowl) A back door was left open at all times incase the pub was shut (that didn’t feel safe to me, seeing as we only had basic bedroom door keys) We stayed here with friends & we all think it was awful. Staff were friendly enough but I’d never stay here again. They should only have a pub...not a hotel.
Stayed at the Castle Hotel last Friday night as visiting relatives in the area. The outlook is of a very old worldy pub and that is is same inside. It had a very nice beer garden which is frequented by the locals and their canine friends - very pleasant. Our room, the one with the 4 poster, was comfortable but very dated. The whole place needs a lot of TLC but I found the place very friendly and welcoming and would stay there again. The food is of a good standard and traditional pub grub - nothing wrong with that. It does need a lot of work and decorating to bring it up to a decent standard but at the price of the room with breakfast you cannot complain. A bed for the night with a decent breakfast is what you get. No frills. Set on a lovely village green in Hythe. Parking is a problem though so bear that in mind. It is like going back in time but hey, it was quirky and I enjoyed my time there.
David is as very welcoming and was friendly throughout, I can’t fault the friendliness of him and his staff. Rufus the dog is very cute! The room was just fine, clean towels each day and well stocked tea and coffee etc. Definitely would stay here again 👍
First impressions of this hotel were quaint until the evening all the heating came on with no control over the radiators so had to keep the windows wide open all night We visited the pub for dinner with usual sticky tables you used to find in pubs 20 years ago with mould around the windows from damp as it has no double glazing The details suggest there is parking there is some if you can find it as the pub is obviously a local attraction and very busy in the evenings showing sports on TV but the noise from the pub did quieten and the noise kept down after 9pm There is no housekeeping even though you need to leave the keys in the bar when you go out The en-suite is sufficient but the noise from the masher from the toilet can be quite noisy from the adjoining rooms Overall a quaint pub for an overnight stay
well i going to be brief and honest ! the place is in a pretty bad shape smelt of damp dog on the stairs we stayed in the Leeds Room dont get excited about that either ! bathroom is so old probably from the 70s my wife could not turn the shower on it was seized windows are old sash type filthy paint flaking sash cords broken, no milk with tea making facilities not a great choice to be fair on the up side the staff were very friendly breakfast in the morning was basic no beans etc etc
We were visiting friends in Greatstone in Kent and found that this hotel was close to our friends place, the rooms are comfortable, especially the rooms at the back as there is no road noise, the food is first class good old English fair, and the staff are very friendly, a definite place to stay again.
We had stayed here 5 years before (in the same room) when travelling via the Chunnel to France. Sadly I dont think the place has had any money spent on it since. We were aware of the macerator fitted to the toilet and anticipated the noise when this is used ... but did not anticipate the smell that was generated - Yuk ! Several flushes later seemed to improve the problem. The wall next to the loo was a mess - obviously something had leaked / been leaking but had not been repaired leaving an ugly mess. The mattress on the bed (the four poster in the picture) must have been the one we slept on 5 years before as it was lumpy, sloping and worn out. No problem I thought, its just one night and the man on the bar had confirmed as we checked in that we could get breakfast at 7.30 before heading to the Chunnel. Sadly when 7.30 came the inner door to the restaurant and the front outside doors remained firmly shut and locked. A couple of other guests decided they had to leave without breakfast as they were on an earlier train than us. At around 8 am I found the inner door unlocked and spoke with a lady who confirmed she was the cleaner .... I explained the situ and she got on the phone to someone who didnt show up before we left. She did her best to help the guests there making tea and toast but we missed out on anything cooked before heading off to our train - Won't be stopping here again - In fact we stayed elsewhere in Hythe on the return trip. No contact or apology from anyone at the hotel - Poor is probably generous
