Steeped in history, tranquil and beautiful. Highly recommended home away from home! Victor our host was brilliant, thank you!

The Old Hotel is a lovely getaway with beautiful surroundings. Victor and Samantha went above and beyond to ensure our comfort.

Staying at the Old Hotel in the main house was a real treat. Very comfortably kitted out with everything a self-catering break needs, it is quiet, peaceful and incredible value for money. The main bedroom was large and had a huge bed, so comfy that I could have spent a week in it! Also, the fireplace in the lounge warmed the cold crisp nights. Victor, who oversees the venue, was so helpful. He washed up our dishes before we woke up each morning, brought our firewood each evening and built the fires for us. A real asset. Would return here in a heartbeat for a much longer stay. A real rare find. Highly recommended.

I will be back! I only slept over on my way to Margate as I had a photo shoot in Howick. Loved my stay at The Old Hotel. Place was clean and tidy. Very quiet area. Not sure what they call him. Manager? Gardener? Handyman? The gentleman that were there when I arrived and left seems to run most things at the hotel. Very informative and very hekpful person. Also very knowledgeable on many subjects, history of the area, etc. I would advise people to spend some time with him as well. I will recommend this place to anyone. And I will be back for a longer stay.
