“Where The Customer Really Does Matter!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

I felt welcome even as I telephoned to enquire about availability. I hadn’t read or been influenced by any other reviews so I was even more delighted upon my arrival to be greeted almost as an old friend. My room was immaculately clean and the bed unbelievably comfortable. One word of warning though – for those watching the calories, the breakfast is so delicious your diet will just have to wait! Well done Shirley and Godfrey

Room Tip: Don't worry - you won't be disappointed with any of the rooms

I stay in hotels two or three nights a week but very few offer such a warm welcome and truly splendid breakfast. The blueberries and raspberries were the best I have tasted in years. Keep up the great work and enjoy your holiday!

This is a fantastic little hotel close to all the amenities in Hythe.I had requested an earlier check in as we were arriving from London for a friend's wedding and the room was ready for us on arrival.Godfrey was a delight so welcoming with a great sense of humour and showed us straight to our room.The en suite room No 5 was excellent ,lovely comfortable bed,tea and coffee making facilities,very clean and a big bonus free wifi..We had an early start in the morning and came downstairs to a welcoming hug from the delightful smiley Shirley who was disappointed that we did not have time to stay for breakfast .. what temptation next time Shirley it smelt delicious !!I would recommend highly recommend this hotel where you are treated as a member of the family rather than a paying guest ....keep up the good work Shirley and Godfrey you are the best..mimi and brian

I read in previous reviews that you were treated like family at this hotel. This is certainly true and nothing seems too much trouble for Shirley and Godfrey. My daughter and I had 2 single rooms and in theory shared a bathroom but we never encountered anyone else wanting to use the facilities. While the rooms were small,they were cosy, clean and comfortable and Charlotte, the housekeeper was most obliging.
We did not really do justice to the 13 types of cereal, 8 types of fruit and the massive cooked breakfast on offer.
The comfort and service was so good, that I will even forgive Godfrey for calling me Mumsie.

Room Tip: The singles are shared facilities but other types of room have en suites

Enjoyed a 3 night stay there last week and enjoyed every minute. Room great, bed very comfortable and the ensuite excellent. Breakfast fantastic with plenty of choice from healthy to the full English which is out this world. Also Godfrey and Shirley make you feel so welcome

A huge welcome again from Shirley and Godfrey, the best double-act in the business! Sadly, only one night this time but the most comfortable bed possible and instantaneously feeling at home. Amazing breakfast with all top quality, fresh ingredients which would put many umpteen starred hotels to shame. Coupled with Godfrey's ongoing 'humourous' commentary and Shirleys bubbly personality, what more could you possibly want? Can't wait for our next visit, but shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone or we might not get in! Thanks a mill, you two!!

Room Tip: Leave it to Shirley, you won't be disappointed!

Me & My wife have just returned from yet another stay at The Mapels, when we arrived we was greeted with open arms as though we was family, and that is how your stay there will be, just like family, i have been to many B&Bs and none of them even come close to this one, exceptional Host, outstanding rooms, and the breakfast is to die for (with a little entertainment from Godfrey) thanks to Shirley & Godfrey for another excellent stay, we will return again in the summer.
