We've stayed at various hotels in this very pleasant area of Deal, and they've all had something to recommend them. We tried Dunkerley's based partly on a good word from a friend, and partly because we liked the look of it. We expected it to be a bit twee, and it was....well, a bit twee.
It was also very welcoming, very comfortable and a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The room was fine, the view superb and the staff could not have been more welcoming. I don't always sleep as well as I would like in hotel beds, but ours was supremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent - always a winner when I review a hotel! On the downside, some of the bedroom furniture was a little shabby and incongruous, and the evening meal we had didn't live up to the reputation we had heard about. But we thoroughly enjoyed our very relaxing stay: sometimes it's not easy to wind down on a weekend break, but we certainly managed to here. We will be going again!More
