This little B&B has so many top awards, it's obscene (5 diamonds from the Automobile Association, the Royal Auto Club's Sparking Diamond Award, and so on), but they are very well deserved. This is probably one of the best B&Bs in all of the southeast. If you want comfort, this is it.
I took the single room. Not as nicely appointed as some of the others (and not nearly as expensive) but quite comfortable. The facilities were down the hall and more than adequate (though the little wall-mounted water heater for the shower confounded me at first).
Breakfast was excellent and filling. Bear in mind that, like most B&Bs, they do not serve dinner, but they do keep a collection of menus from nearby restaurants out for perusal in the lounge.
The owner, Jenny Hadfield, is very accommodating and quite helpful in planning your day's adventures. The resident cats are also quite attentive.
Though its history and location is enough to satisfy literature buffs, this B&B is excellent for castle-hopping. Deal and Walmer castles are just a few miles away and the Hastings battlefield is an easy day trip.

Breakfast included cereals, fruits and various options. We always elect for the traditional full English breakfast. Our request for "runny" egg yokes was perfectly met; this has often been difficult in other English locales.
