The Old Post Office Guest House
Ranked #4 of 9 Hythe B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We first stayed at The Old Post Office Guest House in 2009 and were warmly welcomed by Margaret; we decided to have a weekend break with friends this year (2013) and booked two rooms - efficient booking, excellent communication regarding arrival, both lovely rooms and the same warm welcome from Margaret. We enjoyed a wonderfully sunny weekend - the Old Post Office is at the end of the high street and within walking distance of the military canal and the beach. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Room Tip: Loft room spacious and sleeps up to three on second floor; double room also spacious on first floor...

We stumbled on this guest house purely by chance and what a find! With friends, we made a last minute decision to stay overnight in Hythe. We needed 2 rooms just for one night. Margaret opened the door to us and welcomed us in without any fuss. We had 2 lovely warm, clean and comfortable rooms with fab bathrooms; one private parking space and further public parking just a minute's walk away. Had dinner at the great indian restaurant over the road and had a cooked breakfast at the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway station round the corner. Would definitely stay here again and cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. The one at the very top of the house is HUGE.

An excellent location at the start of the High Street, a warm welcome, a very comfortable room and some useful local knowledge offered. Close to a good selection of evening dining options. Being able to park so close to the property is a bonus. What more could you ask for ??

Room Tip: The Loft Room is spacious, with good en suite facilities.

We had a wonderful three night stay in the large top floor room of this very well run guesthouse.

The fridge and microwave located just outside our room was so very handy and the room itself had a great view of the High Street.

Hythe is a lovely little town with a long High Street full of individual shops and plenty of good pubs, cafes, restaurants and a very good fish and chip shop.

Margaret is a warm and friendly landlady who went out of her way to help in any way she could. Thankyou!

We would love to return both to Hythe and The Old Post Office Guesthouse.

My stay at the Malt Guesthouse was absolutely wonderful. It was just a one-night stay as my partner and I had decided to to stay out somewhere for our anniversary. When we arrived we greeted with a smiling face and a very warm welcome, as though having us stay there was the most wonderful thing in the world. We were shown to our room (the double loft room) which was charming, very spacious with good utilities, good en suite & distinct bedroom and lounging areas. After being asked if we there was anything else we needed, we were left to our own devices.

My partner and I enojyed a relaxed afternoon in the room and a lovely indian meal just along the high street, minutes from the guesthouse. The bed/bedding was brilliant! Comfy and cosy with a good firm matress that gave me no trouble with my bad back.

I found my stay at this guesthouse truly brilliant, the house was charming, our room was clean and the owner was warm and helpful without being intrusive.

Cannot wait to stay again!

The Malt Guest House Now re.named The Old Post Office guest house has been trading since 2003 and although Margaret has had to change the name she wants to let everybody know she will still be offering the same personnel and friendly service as always. Thank you for all your kind comments

From booking the break to leaving things were easy due to Margaret the owner. A lovely lady who could not be more helpful. We stayed in the standard double room which was large and very clean as was the ensuite bathroom. There was a fridge and a microwave(the fridge had fresh milk in it) plenty of storage space. I had the off street parking space which was handy. Close to the high street and everything else including supermarkets. Everyone was very friendly. Ate at the Hythe Brassierie where the food was excellent and the staff great but book to save disappointment. Highly reccommend The Malt House.

Room Tip: Our friends stayed in the loft room which was large and clean.

This is a well-positioned B&B right next to Hythe High Street and within easy walking distance of at least two supermarkets, the sea and miniature railway.
Margaret is extremely well-organised lady, providing written confirmation of our booking and phone call on the day before travelling to confirm arrival times and parking arrangements. As well as being on hand to provide local knowledge when requested.
The room was well-lit, modern and more importantly very clean, with a good quality power shower. The room has a fridge and microwave in which was very handy. However, there was no crockery and cutlery beyond tea making facilities, which seemed a little odd, though I am sure if you requested some, Margaret would provide them. You are given your own front door and room keys and can enter and leave the premises whenever you choose.
It is worth noting that there is no parking at the premises but during the day you can park for free a short walk from the B&B. At night you can move your car to a local car park which is situated 25 yards from the front door of the B&B which is also free between the hours of 6pm-8am, though these times may vary. We didn't find this to be an issue as we were out most of the day, returning early evening and would park in the car park. All in all this was a great experience and we would stay Malt Guest House again.
