Located in front of the sea, this hotel has sea facing rooms which can be obtained at an additional price. Location is great - you can see the sea and the white cliffs while sipping beer in the lobby. Lift is small and two taps on the basin, which I hate in UK. Book breakfast the previous night which will... More

Have stayed at the Marina many a happy occasion but when the lights go off be warned. This morning have awoken to no electricity anywhere in the hotel. Consequently the corridors are very poorly lit, the lift does not work and there is not hot breakfast available in the restaurant. So much for a 4 star hotel having back-up utilities... More

Spent one night recently and really enjoyed the location, the room (especially the balcony), the food and food service BUT, my wife and I had a number of extremely negative encounters with the front desk staff. We found them dismissive, condescending, ill-informed, disengaged, brusque, rude and unprofessional. In fact it was the worst front desk experience we've ever had. Thankfully... More

The hotel is located at the beach and offers free parking. The staff is nice. The hotel itself is not very spacious and the room we had was very small. Overall: it is too expensive and not worth the money.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, using it as a base for exploring the area, specifically dover castle and Canterbury cathedral. I was a little torn as to how to rate it - the hotel does it's 4 stars justice, it's clean and the rooms are spacious, the staff are courteous, and it's location on the waterfront is... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the family room. The room was huge! Despite it being an old hotel, the upkeep was very good, the service excellent and it had a nice ambience. Location was also fantastic as you can get rooms that look out to the bay but yet using the underpass it's just a 5min walk to town in... More

Very good service and excellent location, We booked a room with sea view and it was, just in front of the beach. Comfortable and pretty room, not too big but more than enough, We took there the dinner and breakfast and the food was really good. In general, a very nice week end.

Had an overnight mini break in March Comfortable room ,tasty afternoon tea ,good evening meal and breakfast Bathroom a little jaded but adequate. Interesting room the hotel is quite old so the floors av Re very uneven ,we felt it added to the character but might be a problem for those less steady on their feet.

If you put the post code for this place into your Sat Nav, you will end up directly outside the front door of the hotel and will then have to turn round and turn right so you end up behind the hotel in what is really a public car park, so watch for the Best Western signs and then take... More

Ideal location for Dover port, castle, Folkestone and other south-east coat attractions. Hotel staff are always friendly and helpful. Food is good and rooms comfortable (although we always have the same favourite room!)
