The proprietor and his family were very warm and welcoming. I would rate them as very good. The location was convenient to restaurants, ferries and the train. Breakfast was good and the WiFi worked consistently in our room. Everything up to this point in the review was very good or excellent. Our room, however, was sadly in need of an... More

Absolutely wonderful stay. From the beginning, the owners were extremely helpful and patient when it came to the booking and all of our questions. We were to check-in early and they offered to hold our luggage until our rooms were ready. When they were informed we had to check-out prior to breakfast being served to catch a train, they offered... More

I've been to the Norman house for the weekend to visit Dover Castle and the White Cliffs. The B&B is just opposite the station which is 10 minutes walking to the city centre and 20 to the harbour. The owner and his wife were very kind and helpful, (recommending also were to have a nice fish dinner and how to... More

This is a traditional B&B in a very convenient position for the ferry to France, no more than five minutes away by car. The arrival departure times are very flexible and there is the option (cheaper) to skip breakfast if you're in a hurry. There is limited parking attached to the house but it is easy to park in the...

5 star service. Really friendly helpful staff. Provided safe secure parking as I requested. Would stay here again. Breakfast was superb. Beautiful house. Stayed up the road on the same side at another B&B and this was one is far superior.

Had a great reception at this guest house for our overnight stay, which was easy to find, within walking distance of town centre and on-street parking right outside (there is limited parking on-site). Only down side was that our room was on third floor and I found myself wishing I'd taken up the owner's offer to take our bags up!... More

Coming to this hotel is like coming home: your hosts make you feel perfectly welcome, a nice, familiar, not too big house where breakfast is outstanding and rooms are very sympathetic... with supercomfortable beds!

We were welcomed on arrival by Laz and shown to our accommodation which was clean and very comfortable. We had the option of a full English breakfast which we opted for. Great way to start the day. I would highly recommend Norman House for those who are on a budget but enjoy simple comforts. The Norman would not be suitable... More

My friends and I were backpacking and stayed a few nights in Dover. Owners were very accommodating, made a great breakfast, and had very clean and homey facilities. It's more cosy than extravagant, but we found it perfect. Very, very close to the train station and to town, and to Dover Castle. Would visit again.

Four friends and I took it upon ourselves recently to cycle from London to Dover. It was an exhausting experience, though a fun one, which lasted more than twelve hours. In the end we had to get the train from Folkstone, cold, tired and extremely wet (thank you British climate). We could not have asked for a more welcoming place... More
