We spent two nights here in August of 2014 and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located on Castle street with an excellent view of Dover Castle. The hotel is only about three blocks from the Dover Museum which is a must see attraction when visiting Dover. The Museum contains an old Roman boat which was discovered when workers... More

I love this place, right in heart of Dover, just minutes from docks, seaside and night life. We come to Dover about twice a year from The USA and wouldn't think of going to a cookie cutter place. Blake's has a beautiful cellar bar, a great menu, comfortable accommodation and the best staff you could ever meet. Highly recommend

I loved eating and drinking here, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff are so welcoming. A nice glass of red wine went down really well with our meal which was reasonably priced for the quantity they served you. Wasn't impressed with the previous owners but these new ones certainly know how to treat their customers.

For what it offers there is better... More

I stayed one night only in Dover, and found the room to be adequate for the night. It was clean enough, the floor could have probably been vacuumed a little bit better though. Tea making facilities were good. Toiletries.. well, wall soap and a couple of blocks of soap, so if you want more toiletries bring your own. It was... More
