“Lovely stay, great value”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed at the lodge during one of our coastal walks. The B&B is right in the centre, next to the train station and the seaside. It is the ideal place for a couple or a family, with a very homely and welcoming feeling. There is a lovely restaurant just across the street and a great fish and chips shop around the corner. The hostess was great and gave us a lovely room, fully equipped with toiletries - highly appreciated since we always try to minimise our luggage. Breakfast was very good and Regina was very attentive, making sure we had all we needed and more! She also gave us lots of tips about how to make the most of our time in Deal.

Another great stay at sondes lodge regina the owner really does go out of her way to make your stay very good.One day we went over to france and regina cooked us a huge breakfast at six oclock in the morning (which kept us going till 4 pm) then when we arrived back to sondes lodge in our room there was a nice slice of cake for us so with the kettle,tea,sugar,coffee and milk in the room a nice way to end the day.We would not hesitate to return again as it is always very clean and tidy and very close to areas of interest

Room Tip: room 3 was very good

Stayed with my family over the weekend, and couldn't fault the place. I'm originally from Deal and had never heard of it before, one of those places you just drive past. Lovely room, best location &lovely breakfast!

We recently spent 3 nights in Sondes Lodge and had a lovely time! Having stayed in b&b's of poor quality before, this was a pleasant surprise! We stayed in the family room which was clean, tidy and spacious and had a brilliant bed. It also had a table and chairs where we could sit in the evening sharing a bottle of wine. The owner is very nice and so attentive-the first night we drank our wine from the tumbler style glasses provided (well, if it's good enough for the French) but when we arrived back the second night, the owner had put two wine glasses and some pretzels in our room!
I'm not normally a big fan of a cooked breakfast but the one at this guesthouse is great and a perfect size. The guesthouse is in a great location and when we stayed in September, it was three nights for the price of two - brilliant! And could the dog who lives here be any cuter?!
We would highly recommend this guesthouse and hope to stay again!

This is fine for a place just to sleep but I wouldn't want to stay more than one night. The room we stayed in was incredibly cramped - the shower was actually in the bedroom! Only go with someone you are very comfortable with! It's very dated in terms of decor. The owner is pleasant but I wouldn't stay here again. It's not worth £60 per night - you'd be much better off in a travelodge or premier inn for a night unfortunately.

Me and some friends meet up in Deal twice a year for a get-together and we will definitely stay here again. A good find. We stayed at Sondes Lodge for two nights last month and would recommend it. The location is ideal - right on the coast and in the centre of town. Our rooms were comfy and clean and there was a friendly atmosphere to the place. We felt very welcome. Breakfast was great as well - and we loved putting pins in the map on the wall. We'll definitely be booking to go back in the summer!
