We stayed at this guesthouse during a weekend trip to Dover. We brought our dog with us and stayed in the Annex portion of the guesthouse. Positives: The owner was endlessly kind and accommodating. She was extremely sweet to our pup! The room was clean and had everything we needed (except a hairdryer; I forgot mine). The guesthouse is very... More

There is nothing to fault about this place, highly recommend it! The people here are brilliant, we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The facilities are great, amazing shower and the beds give you the best nights sleep. We were doing a charity event and they were extremely helpful and very generous, even giving us snacks to eat...

The place is lovely and homely, the people are exceptionally friendly and helpful, I couldn't ask for better. We felt extremely welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay - if only it could have been longer. The best B&B I have stayed at.

My husband and I stayed here on a Friday & Saturday night as we had booked a day trip to France. I had a good feeling about the place when I called to say that we would be checking in quite late as we had a long journey to make to get to Dover. I was told 'not to worry'... More

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!
