Where do I start? We booked the hotel for an overnight stay in July so we would be able to catch an early ferry to France. There was a nice Margeaux 2004 - not the best year - decanting was not something they knew about. There was no air conditioning and the rooms were so hot I thought I had... More

My friend and I booked this stay as a reward for getting new jobs, we got an excellent deal through Spa Seekers. We arrived at the hotel and got our parking disc from reception , we then parked across the road in the De Bradleigh Warf car park for free. The hotel is set on the seafront and the reception...

Upon arrival, we were immediately stricken by the “grande dame” appearance of this noble pile. It is certainly of an elegant vintage, but an array of dates, name changes, and other factors left us quite confused as to its actual age. I have read or heard of an original date of 1741, which, of course, makes it older than the... More

A wonderful old hotel with a lot of character. Built about 1836 - and renovated to modern standards. Still the rooms are on the small side, and the clean lovely hotel does look old - but it should! (The double bed was a "double", not a Queen/King size.) The hotel restaurant and cafe have very good food and prompt friendly... More

Stunning view of Dover Marina, however the hotel itself it very outdated. Found the cleanliness of the hotel very poor, glasses left in the hallways, bath was not the most attractive with dirt marks within it. Further to this bed are smaller in comparison to those I have slept in at other hotels. On reflection the Spa treatment and staff... More

Charming, historic hotel on the waterfront at Dover. Excellent location in the better part of Dover, very close to the ferry terminal. We had an excellent view over the waterfront. The rooms seem to have been renovated recently and were very nicely decorated and were a reasonable size. Breakfast was quite cheap and good for the price.

Stayed here with my wife after a trip with Dover Sea Safari. The room was ok although the bed was small compared to most hotels these days. The restaurant and bar really let the place down. The food is over priced given the quality (poor). The house wine was awful and we were served quite possibly the worst mojito I... More

Marginally cheaper than the Premier Inn when we booked, and only a few hundred yards away, this hotel is a good stopping point for an early Dover to Calais ferry. Couldn't get a lot closer to the ferry terminal. Great views of the channel. I would recommend it.

Stayed here for two nights while filming in the area. Great location and the hotel was buzzing when I arrived. Good check in and nice room on the 4th floor with plenty of space. Bit shabby in the corridors and could do with a lick of paint when you get native the ground floor, but all in all nice place.
