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!

Nothing was to much trouble for Martin and Sonia. The breakfast was excellent . This guesthouse has just been awarded 4stars silver with Visit Britain and the breakfast award. We will definitely come again soon and also tell all our friends and family where to stay when in Dover.

I have never stayed anywhere that felt as much like home as Sandown does. A group of four of us stayed for one night to catch an early ferry to Dunkirk and we all feel the same way. Martin greeted us with a smile (even though it was raining) as we arrived and he couldn't have been more friendly &... More

We stayed at Sandown for two nights and agree with the positive reviews from other guests. Sonia and Martin made sure we had everything we needed. Martin kindly dropped us off at the ferry port and gave us lots of good information to help us on the rest of our trip. We definitely recommend Sandown!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our night precruise at Sandown Guest House. Sonia was so gracious to pick us up at the ferry when we arrived and provide transport both to Dover Castle and the cruise terminal the day we departed for the cruise. She was very helpful with tips on things to do in Dover and made us... More

I never write reviews for my experiences, but I felt I needed to for this guest house in Dover. Sonia & Martin make you feel right at home...it was if we had known them for years. Their guest house is clean, colorful, and well decorated. But, that is not why you want to stay here. It is the "feeling" you... More
