Well Equipped And Comfortable
We stayed one night to be closer to a wedding we were attending the following day.

The owner is very polite and friendly which made the check in/out and stay very relaxed.

We booked a double and a twin room, both rooms were well equipped with comfortable beds.

Lovely view from the double room across open fields with a stream beneath the window.

Breakfast is included in the very reasonable room cost which saves you having to go out looking for food first thing in the morning

Would certainly book again, many thanks for a pleasant stay

Our Stay At Waterside Guest House
On arrival and while booking in I was filled with dred due to the impression given by the dark depressing atmosphere of the loung bar area that smelled musty and damp. However the rooms were bright, clean and well presented with hot drinks making facilities and a TV. The beds were comfortable and it was everything that we required for an overnight stop on the way to Eurotunnel.

Hello Amanda, thank you for your comments regarding your parents stay with us, we are glad that they enjoyed their stay here it was lovely to meet them and have a chat with them. We never get complaints regarding the noise from the main coastal road because like most roads the traffic is busy during the day and very quiet during the evening and night times when most guests are in their rooms and all the rooms have double glazing which is very efficient and we do get passing trade from the road so for us a good location in many ways.

A Weekend On The South Coast
The Guest House is on the outskirts of Dymchurch which meant it wasn\'t noise but was close enough to walk into the village. The room had a fantastic view of the stream behind and pastures full of sheep and one for any train spotter, a view of the Roney Hythe and Dymchurch railway. The bed was about the most comfortable we\'ve ever slept in and the breakfast had a taste and freshness that showed everything was fresh and full of flavour.

Excellent value for money, a lovely location (waking up to that view was a real pleasure) and a great night\'s sleep and a fantastic breakfast. What more could you ask for? Heartily recommend

Dear Kai Dase, sorry that you do not have a very good opinion of English bed and Breakfasts, I do not know where you stayed but our carpets do NOT smell as they are cleaned regularly, WONKY stairs, well we have 1 flight of 12 stairs and it is straight up, plumbing, well there is an adequate sized wash hand basin with hot and cold running water, a fully functional shower cubicle and a fully working low flush toilet. You did miss our full English breakfast which all our guests thoroughly enjoy as we get lovely comments from them and we have an award presented to us from Visit Britain tourist board regarding our great breatfast. The only comment of yours that I agree with is the stunning view from your bedroom window which is not surprising as we back onto the beautiful countryside of Romney Marsh.

We have been here seventeen years on the trot, which in itself should tell you how much we enjoy staying there. We would not consider anywhere else. There is a well stocked bar & a lovely garden with plenty of chairs & tables for you to sit and admire the lovely view over the countryside which spreads out in front of you as far as the eye can see. Ducks & other bird life can be seen & enjoyed. We first stayed when our daughter was 9 months old & now she is 16 & her younger brother is 12. For the menfolk you get a fabulous view of the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch railway which runs by over the fields behind. Waterside casts its magic over us each year & we have already booked to go next year.

Wonderful Time At The Waterside Guest House
Spent 3 nights at this quaint home in Dymchurch, England. Owners were very friendly, accommodations were very clean, food was great with plenty of variety. Located next to a canal, with birds and ducks to watch.

Best of luck to Rose and Roy! Our thoughts and prayers go with you! Thanks for a terrific time.

Lovely Stay At Waterside
What really made our stay special was having breakfast outside on the patio. With extensive views over the marshes and with the small river running by it was a beautiful and peaceful location. Lovely breakfast with vegetarian sausages too. Enjoyed walking along the new sea defence promenade just a couple of minutes away.

We stayed for one night on 27 July in a sweet little room overlooking the meadow and a stream - I was so excited to see a kingfisher when I looked out in the morning! The bed was comfy and cosy and we had good tea/coffee making facilities. Full English breakfast was delicious and our hosts Ray and Rose were very kind and friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waterside Guest House.Good car park and there is plenty to see and visit within a short walk or drive. The accommodation was very comfortable and the choice at breakfast excellent. We had an evening meal during our stay and again what we had was very good. The view from our bedroom window over the Romney Marsh was an added bonus, seeing the variety of birds that came to the feeders and also the wild fowl using the stream/brook just a few yards away. We were even lucky enough to see a sunset (Summer? 2012) whilst enjoying a drink on the terrace.

Our Visit
We (my father and I) spent 4 days in the guest house.

We really enjoyed our stay in Waterside. The room was ok (only we had to close the window because of the traffic sound), the host and the other guests were very friendly. It was good to sit at the back of the building, near the water, the ducks and sheep. Enjoying the view over the landscape and sometimes the litle train.

We would like to come again.
