“What lovely surprise”
Reviewed 17 August 2009

This is probably one of the best B&B we have stayed in! To start we were running a tad late to change for a family wedding (thanks to M25) and when we arrived were show quickly to our rooms with minimum fuss. Rooms are clean, with everything from well equipped bathroom to furniture being of excellent standard. Most of the staff were very friendly. In the morning when we came down for breakfast we sat in a lovely sunny window, had prompt service and were offered Sunday newspapers to read whilst our English breakfasts were being made. A small downside is that they only offer twin beds and the website and photos does not do the place justice (in fact we almost didn’t book). It has a car park and separate entrance to rooms after curfew.

Located right in the centre of the picturesque town of Sandwich and therefore ideally situated for all that the town has to offer.

This is a public house with rooms above. My room was large room and nicely decorated with all the amenities you would expect including a mini fridge. You do get quiet a bit of noise from the bar downstairs but this does not go on after closing time. The bathroom was also large with bath and shower over. I paid forty pounds for single occupancy of a twin room without breakfast, value for money.

The food served in the bar was excellent home cooked food.

A great place to stay in Sandwich.

Set in the middle of Sandwich, the hidden gem of England. A small village that was once the most important port in England, its well preserved historic beauty is only rivalled by Rye. But Sandwich is much quieter and less touristy.

The New Inn is, as the name suggests, an Inn. Its also smack in the middle of town so its inevitable that theres going to be some noise, but its all quiet as a mouse a few minutes after last orders. Try and get room 1 if you are worried about noise, but it shouldnt really be a problem at all.

Being relatively new, its free of creaking floorboards, sloping floors, and doors that dont fit. The rooms are not enormous but are pefectly adequate. The bathrooms are modern and most importantly, everything is kept fastidiously clean. And I mean really really clean indeed!

Breakfast is average, nothing to complain about but nothing to remark on either. We did not sample the food other than the brekkies as service stops at 7:30pm. Too early for us but not unusual in Sandwich, so it seems. Theres a kebab shop and chippie close by if you are really stuck for food late at night.

Staff are friendly and helpful and theres enough parking out the back. The pub is very popular indeed and attracts a slightly older crowd that the Fluer de Lis a few doors down, which seems to be the local chav-pit.

I would recommend this place on the cleanliness alone, but theres more to it than that. I cant say if its better than all the others, but if you cant stretch to The Bell, then the New Inn is certainly worth a shot.
