Reviewed 5 August 2013

Stayed just one night but well enough equipped to enable longer stays with good degree of independence. Had a very large room at top of house - more than a room really as had sitting area with single bed, table and chairs for two, sofa and TV with double bed in a alcove. Fridge and microwave on landing outside along with a beautiful traditional rocking horse (shame we're a bit too big to have a ride - childhood dream to own one of these so was seriously tempted!). All impeccably clean and well maintained. Shower room also very clean with good shower.

Would not hesitate to stay in this comfortable and friendly guest house again

Room Tip: Top floor room was huge!

Stayed at the weekend, Margaret always very welcoming and helpful. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. The location is excellent for visiting the many Restaurants or walking along the Canal, and convenient if going on the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch railway. Will definitely return for another stay as soon as possible. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends & family.

We have stayed at The Old Post Office Guest House on 3 occasions and have always been made very welcome and the position of the guest house is ideal for parking and the shops. The family room is perfect for children and is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The facilities are top class and is nice and quiet in the evening. Margaret is a wonderful host and having stayed in many B&Bs around Britain and Europe this is one I put at the top.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the family room.

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.
