“Would be quaint if it was clean”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013
person found this review helpful

This is a beautifully located, characterful cottage right on the seafront. It is furnished in a homely fashion - comfortable and well used with plenty of little things like games, books etc. Decor is quite old fashioned and basic but is somehow very relaxing. Big downer - it is dirty, particularly the kitchen. It's a shame that paying guests have to experience such poor standards of cleanliness. Hopefully the owners will read this and rectify the situation with a deep clean as another reviewer mentioned. Would I recommend to a friend? Definitely if it was cleaned. Probably if it wasn't - as long as they wanted to eat out.

“Great Location!!!”

This was a lovely place to stay. This property is so easy to get to from london. The location is right on the beach with lovely views from the front facing rooms. The village is nice with a great coffee shop called "Loaf" on the high street. Also, it is a pleasant walk to Folkstone where we had a fantastic lunch at "Rocksalt". The pub next door to the property was also very good for a Sunday meal.
The round dining table was a real hit for meals and games. The bedrooms are of good size and plenty of bathrooms for big groups. The kitchen is small, but we managed with 7 people and a baby just fine.
The only negative that I have is that the cottage really needs a good deep clean. It was tidy, but far from clean. I know it is difficult to clean as people are in and out as it is a rental, but there were years of built up grease and dirt. For example, the extractor fan in the top floor bathroom was caked in dirt and dust, the kitchen was greasy and dirty, lots of junk in the back bathroom that could be hidden somewhere else, the fireplace screen was caked in dirt and dust and cobwebs everywhere!!! Also, the shower on the top floor did not drain very well.
All in all, we had a wonderful time and I would stay at Albion Cottage again.
