About the hotel
The White Cliffs Hotel is set in the heart of the picturesque village of St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe under a mile from the beautiful beach at St. Margaret's Bay in celebrated White Cliffs Country.
This is the closest hotel in England to the coast of France at Calais 21 miles away and is just seven minutes drive from the port and Cruise Terminal at Dover. The hotel is centred around an archetypal Kentish weather-boarded inn that dates back to the 16th Century the style captures the essence of life in coastal England with a contemporary atmosphere and a refreshingly independent feel. The Bay Restaurant & Bar is at the heart of the hotel, as the Michelin Guide would say 'it's the sort of place worth that's worth a detour' if passing through Dover. The place attracts locals who often drop in for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner with friends in the often buzzing and lively atmosphere. There's daily changing Blackboard Menu with The Catch of The Bay and more. There's also our Mile Away Menu on which everything on it comes from within a mile of us* and our Seasonally Changing Menu with some perennial favourites such as Fish & Chips in beer batter with real proper chips and mushy peas, 28 day hung Kentish Beef with Béarnaise, Romney Marsh Lamb, Monkshill Farm Pork Chops, Rope-grown Mussels in scrumpy and more. . . In winter, guests can warm themselves by our roaring log fires whilst in summer they are welcome to enjoy the sun in our beach style walled garden. You can even take a Spa Break here and benefit from the haven of peace and tranquility in the grounds of our sister hotel's fabulous Spa a two minute drive or short stroll away. . .

A bit disappointing
The only room available was a 2 bedroom apartment, but we went with that, although there was only the 2 of us and we were only staying 1 night.
The wifi signal is not strong enough to use, we didn't really use the kitchen facilities, but didn't see any teatowels if we had tried cooking there. Bathroom had a shower curtain, but the shower was hand held. Very hot weather so window was open, but very noisy early in the morning with deliveries. The restaurant seemed to be in melt down - they brought the wrong meal for us and there seemed to be quite a few other tables with late or none appearing orders. They did apologize, took the correct dish back to keep warm while they prepared the one that they got wrong and didn't charge us for it, so they did their best to put it right. We said we'd have a break before dessert while we finished our wine, and they said they'd bring the menus in the meantime, but we gave up after half an hour and didn't bother (better for the waistline that way :) ). Breakfast was good, but it took a while for them to notice we were there - coffee was serve service from flask, but was cold.
Spent a Saturday night here but unfortunately got a room above the pub area from which you could hear all the drunken ramblings of the punters.
Finally went down about 11.50pm to ask when the pub was due to close so I could get some sleep. They knew what I was talking about and moved the remaining punters to another section of the pub but unfortunately the damage was done.
All in all, they knew what the issue was and reacted accordingly but not something I wanted to have to deal with when looking for a relaxing evening away, nor after forking out the £130 price tag for the night. I'd suggest for those that do stay, request that you don't get put in one of the rooms above the pub. Although you may be fine if you're a heavy sleeper or there on a quiet week night.
Otherwise, we did enjoy the food which was good value.
