Our main regret with our stay at the Best Western Dover Marina is that we only had one night there. The hotel is really charming, the very picture of what a tourist from overseas wants an English seaside hotel to look like - and if anything it looks better in real life than the photos indicate. The staff during our... More

We stayed the night of July 26 and could not sleep. Our room was not livable -- even at night it was about 95 degrees. The windows could only be opened about 3 inches, so there was no air circulation even though we had rooms facing the seafront. We checked out after the first night because this was the worst... More

The hotel was easy to find, to be quite honest, we had been at Dover Castle prior to arriving at the hotel and we could see it from there. Parking was in a common car park but they give you a pass for your car upon check in so there is no fee. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

I was allocated a very small room with a single bed and a very small shower room in the corner. I must have stayed here on one of the warmest days of the year and the window only opened about 3 to 4 inches. It was so warm and at about 9pm I phoned reception begging for a fan to... More

This is our third time staying here, and everytime we do it's simply more amazing than the time before. First, the staff...simply amazing people. I saw some new faces that replaced some of the few " less than pleasant" folks ( i.e., breakfast staff). My 4 year old still asks to go see 1 of the folks that works during... More

Our room number was 400, and it was incredibly hot and humid. The window couldn't open more than 30 degrees. We booked twin, but got triple. When we told the receptionist she was very helpful and said that an extra bed will be removed. We had lunch there and my husband was very happy, but my jacket potato was soggy... More

The room was sparkling, the sea view brilliant and the welcome warm. Breakfast was great including cook-it-yourself waffles and a buffet with a wide choice. Bar and food well up to standard. Can't wait to stay here again.

Stayed here overnight at the end of July 2014 with friends before catching a cruise next day. Front desk was helpful, if at times overwhelmed and understaffed. Breakfast was included and was quite good. The room was very small; about 12x12 with a bathroom carved out in the corner. Bed was comfortable, but sleep was difficult due to the room... More

I upgraded to a superior room with sea view to have a good start to our European adventure. Advertised as a King size bed in a spacious room with balcony overlooking the sea,not the room we were assigned, a visit to reception after a short discussion with the receptionist, changed rooms to the one we should have had when we...
