I chose this venue to stay because it is very obviously a homely B&B run by a dedicted couple. Not having a direct online booking facility is a great plus and emailing or ringing Phil or Juliet is a much more personal and direct.
We were given a very friendly welcome and shown to our room on the first floor which had the best sea view I have ever had. Plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and more in the room which was clean and tidy. It is not a hotel and does not try to be one. It is honest and friendly and the right price for the location. Breakfast was huge and prepared on demand. Phil's homemade bread and scones are delightful which were accompanied by homemade preserves. Will definitely look to stay here again but for a longer time on next visit.
It is by no means perfect, but any faults found would always be dealt with by Phil or Juliet who were a really pleasant couple. Highly recommend this to non pretentious folk, they should stay in Thorpeness!
