Summerhill Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 7 Hawkhurst B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 June 2012

My partner stayed here one night while we attended an event at Bedgebury. Mr and Mrs Schalburg could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was nice and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. I have a bad back and had a great nights sleep! We overlooked their beautiful garden and it was a lovely quiet calm place to stay.The breakfast was really yummy and beautifully cooked. Mr Schalburg really went above and beyond and got us out of a sticky situation with a lift. If you are looking for a comfortable, reasonable, friendly place to stay in Hawkhurst then look no further.

Room Tip: We overlooked the back garden which was really nice.

I have now stayed at Summerhill on several occasions and this is a real home from home. Jacqueline and Chris (and Bow) make me very welcome each time. Rooms are wonderfully clean and the breakfasts are excellent each time.I look forward to time spent here, not often you can say that for a work/ business stay.

We stayed for 2 nights while attending the Hop Farm festival and it was fantastic. The little village was very lovely and the Pub at the top of the hill was very friendly and had fantastic food. The breakfast was very good and a fantastic start to the morning. We stayed in the twin room with the private bathroom which was a lovely size and has a fantastic shower, especially after a day at the festival. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.

A wonderful place to stay for visits to the many places of interest in the Weald of Kent. My wife and I stayed for 5 days and had a wonderful time. Jaqueline and Chris did all in their power to make our stay enjoyable. We had a lovely room overlooking their beautiful garden and the food at breakfast time was plentiful. There are a number of places very close for evening meals. Should we visit that area again we will certainly make sure we stay at Summerhill.

This traditional Engish B&B is excellently located halfway between the classic gardens of Sissinghurst and Great Dixter (and other gardens too). Their 2 rooms are upstairs in their 1930's house. Hawkhurst itself is not such a pretty town, with other nearby villages providing more historic architecture and atmosphere. Rooms are clean and comfortable - great mattresses. The bathroom for the twin room is a few steps away from the bedroom - above the stairs and entranceway, so not *really* private (if this matters to you!).
Chris and Jacqueline are enthusiastic hosts, always ready to give advice on the area.
And Bo, their spaniel is always ready to wag her tail!
Note:mobile/network reception in the area is almost non-existent - but obviously nothing to do with the establishment! :-)

At Summerhill we were brilliantly looked after by our hosts, Jacqueline and Chris. The breakfasts were beautifully cooked and delicious. Our room was spick and span and very comfortable. Hawkhurst makes an very good centre for visting Kent. Close by there is a huge variety of castles, houses and gardens and the coast is nearby. Canterbury and lots of picturesque towns and villages offer endless oportunities for shopping and other activities. Our hosts were a mine of information, helping us to make the most of out visit.
