We stayed at The Norman Guest House for two days before our Baltic cruise. Big mistake!! Dover is a very small/blue collar town with very little to offer other than the Castle for sightseeing. The train service to Dover is excellent hence we would have been so much happier to have stayed in Canterbury and trained to Dover from there... More

Booked at late notice to meet an early morning crossibng to France and enabling a visit to Dover. Kids first experience in B&B. Book parking if you require, it is available but mainly on street due to location opposite the station. Initial welcome was poor and the room decor very 80s but clean and bathroom was reasonable, we had the... More

Loved our stay at the Norman Guest House. Accessible and welcoming. Staff was awesome and very accommodating. Great value for the stay. Older establishment, but clean and well kept. Access to castle and cliffs is close. Delicious breakfast.

A very nice small guesthouse. Was housed here with my girlfriend from France for one night. Were times briefly to England for a few days. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The Location is in the Centre of the Town. The guest house was very clean. Car Parking available. Perfect.

Our hosts were great. Friendly and easily approachable. The house and room were clean and fresh. We had a car so the location didn't effect us, however, I believe it would take no more than 10 mins to walk to the Main Street. The room suited our needs and the service was great. The included cooked breakfast was excellent and... More

We booked a cruise out of Dover and wanted to arrive one day early. The Norman Guest House fit our plans perfectly. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast was very good. When we arrived, we noted that we would need a taxi to the port the following day and the proprietor very quickly made a reservation for us. This B&B... More

The owners live in the hotel and are always extremely helpful. We got a very nice and big room with en-suite bathroom for a decent price. The only problem was that it is on the main road and just above a railway, so keep your windows closed at night, if you are unused to noise.
