We stayed here on Saturday 28th June & Henryka made us so welcome from the moment we arrived. She is such a lovely person that we felt like we were staying with a favourite Aunt in her lovely peaceful house. The house is set in beautiful gardens & the back garden, which seems to go on forever, is also a haven for lovely wild birds. The house from the front overlooks Folkestone harbour & town plus to the sides you can see the Downs which have plenty of signposted walks.
Henryka has paid a great deal of attention to what a guest would need during a stay so she hasn,t missed a single thing... dressing gowns, unlimited tea, coffee, fruit & fresh water are to hand as are the best quality toiletries in the bathrooms.
The breakfast was absolutely delicious & we began with fresh fruit salad , yoghurt, cereal, followed by a full English in whatever combination you required plus of course fruit juice, tea & coffee.
I have stayed at many hotels & guest houses throughout Europe & many of them have good facilities & tasty breakfasts but Henryka,s was the icing on the cake as i know how much she really wants her guests needs to be met..and they are in abundance!. We will definitely return but we can,t promise to leave!!!
