My daughter treated us to a weekend in Dover and booked this guest house for us. We were told at 2pm when we arrived that we could not book in until 5pm. The owners were very friendly, but the house and room we stayed in (the purple room) were extremely cluttered and dusty. The bathroom was spacious but quite grubby... More

We arrived after a five hour drive to be told we were not booked in, that we didn't confirm. When I showed the texts to the owner to confirm we had(sent by himself)he tried to call around, but being bank holiday everywhere was fully booked.

This was booked through Laterooms. Wish it had not. This is an home, making a little money using its spare rooms. Three of us were booked in. My room had a separate bathroom on the hall, which I did not like. The room had a small TV which could not get a picture on, even though the landlady swapped it... More

Sleep down by the warves - any where but here. The only B&B where you cannot book in before 6pm and have to be out before 8.45am. If you are charging people to stay in your home at least clean up the house. Sheets smelt like perfume from a previous guest. Everything smelt dusty and old. Torn curtains just added... More

Like others had booked and paid online, was our first time in a UK B&B and have to say not a pleasurable experience. Thought we were auditioning for a part in Faulty Towers. Room was very average, bed uncomfortable, couldn't get any TV reception - so that was useless - wifi very marginal and the toilet dis functional. Have stayed... More

A charming Victorian residence. First class facilities. We could not fault this B&B, Stayed both ways on a trip to France. Tom is a great host. We are planning a trip to france next year and if we sail from Dover, Consider this property booked.Loved the furnishings in rooms added to the atmosphere

The bedroom was absolutely awful. The room obviously belonged to Tom and Linda as it had personal belongings such as cosmetics, jewelley, clothes (including underwear in the drawers and on the floor) used tissues and clutter. There was also a plaque above the bed with their names on it and their wedding photo and other family photos on the dresser.... More

We arrived at Salisbury House after a very long drive. I had booked the room for an overnight stay through Expedia. When we arrived the owner of the bed and breakfast said "Now which room shall I give you" even though on the booking form confirmation it showed quite clearly which room we had booked. I kept saying to him... More

I totally agree with Karen J. The rooms were very messy, in fact the whole house was a mess. The shower on the first floor didn't work and when reported to the owner he said he would look at it, only to be told later that it was working - it was definitely not working. The owner said to use... More
