“Couldn't wish for better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

We were travelling back to London late June 2011 and found Summerhouse Luxury B&B. We wanted nice quiet clean accommodation and we found it at Summerhouse Luxury B&B. Excellent hosts, delicious homemade breakfast. Couldn't wish for better. They were so nice Christine even shared her bread recipe with us. Thanks so much. New Zealand Travellers.

This must be the nicest B&B we have stayed in. We were in the lovely lemon room overlooking the garden and it was so peaceful. Every little thing was thought of from the delicious home-cooked breakfast (including freshly homemade bread) to the little bottles of hand and body lotion in the bathroom. The cliff top walk to Reculver while the sun was setting was beautiful. An ideal location for Canterbury, too. We would recommend this to anyone. Thank you, Christine and John.

Summerhouse is a welcoming and homely place to stay. The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with emailer. Breakfast is amazing. Your stay is made, however, by the friendliness of Christine and John. Highly recommended

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at summerhouse, which was a stone's throw away from the costal path. We stayed in the twin room overlooking their wonderfully kepted gargen. Christine and John were very hospitable and welcoming. Everthing was stopless, the towels, the robes and the bed linen. Loved the home made bread, which was a nice touch. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.

I have rated the service, value,sleep quality and cleanliness all as excellent.

We loved everything about our short stay at Summerhouse: the room was spotless, decorated with care and taste and the bed very comfortable. The whole atmosphere was very relaxing and the couple that owns / runs the B&B add to the mix with their personality and sense of humour.

Never too close or too far from the guests, they managed to make us feel welcome and at home.

At night the level of quiet is amazing: you couldn't hear a fly, and the breakfast is excellent and tasty: we had full English Breakfast on a patio that overlooks a beautiful garden full of flowers and colours.

Simple, cosy, excellent.

We had a very comfortable night in the Lemon Room; spacious, very feminine and clean. The en suite was ideal and the bath/shower is appreciated over those with just a shower!
A wonderful view over the garden. Lots of information was available in the room and in the conservatory/breakfast room and all our queries were answered in detail. Very close to the shoreline and cliff walks. The morning breakfast was very pleasant too; lovely and hot.
