I can't rate this b & b highly enough. Sonia and Martin make you so welcome that it's just like a home from home. The beds are extremely comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! Lifts to and from the ferry are considered part of the service. So happy to return here after a... More

Well we stayed one night before taking the 7:35 ferry to Germany. Owners very friendly! We were a bit worried about leaving our full car in the backyard parking place... Sign warning us. But it was nice to have a parking place anyway! All you wanted in a room was there... Coffee tea etc... Even biscuits and Toblerone... (Toilet paper... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Sandown B&B and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Martin and Sonia go above and beyond to make sure their guests are well cared for. This family owned and operated B&B truly knows the meaning of hospitality. My husband was part of a group of channek relay swimmers crossing the English... More

My daughter & I stayed here for the night while my other daughter swam in a Channel relay swim! Martin & Sonja were so welcoming & their knowledge of all things "Channel Swimming" was invaluable! We would not have been able to witness the start at midnight without their perfect directions! Also being offered the use of the facilities all... More

Host was friendly and welcoming Facilities were good, excellent breakfast with a good choice value for money , walls very thin could hear somebody snoring in a different room , also car parking can be a bit of a problem but all in all great night stay, handy to catch an early ferry

Stayed here one night before a ferry to France and would stay again. It is a very clean and comfortable B&B. Really nice hosts who do everything to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast was excellent the rooms although smallish had everything you could need and the beds were very comfortable. The only negative I could mention is the parking.... More

Stayed here a few nights ago. Martin spent time to explain what to see and do in the area. The B&B is good value and the you are made to feel welcome. Breakfast is great. Basically you can't go wrong staying here.

I've stayed at Sandown more times than I can remember and every time I stay Martin & Sonia have done something else to make your stay even more special. You think this would not be possible as it is such a wonderful place to stay yet they continue to add little extra touches. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Dover.... More

Having stayed in Dover dozens of nights in the past year, I can definitely say that the Sandown Guest House is undoubtedly the best B&B in Dover. The rooms are fantastic and the breakfast is exceptional. Nothing was to much trouble for Martin and Sonia. I definitely consider Sandown to be my number 1 choice for a B&B in Dover!
