I recently stayed in this B&B As I was visiting friends the only time I was really needing the room was late evenings to sleep. I checked in around 8pm, left my bags in the room and was out again until about 11:30pm. After I was settled in the room I noticed one tap was running. I tried to turn... More

One of the worst hotels I have stayed in, and the only time I have given a negative review in my life. The only positive was that the lady that met us on arrival was lovely. We had a 5 hour drive to Dover, we just wanted a shower and some sleep before the ferry and a 7 hour drive... More

Electrics haven't been checked, plug socket was buzzing, TV didn't work, shower not private. Bed way too hard. Window didn't close properly exposing us to traffic and wino noise. Generally shabby and tired looking. Just lucky it was cheap. How it's down as 3 star on booking.com is beyond me.

It was clean and comfortable without unnesary frills. The breakfast was wellcomed and very good. The hotel is a short way from the port which is good. Restoraunts, shops and entertament is available, the history of Dover and and a visit to the "White Cliffs of Dover "

The room was very uncomfortable, bed was terrible. The shower was more of a trickle rather than a shower, really disappointing given the positive reviews I had read previously. We stayed on the top floor, maybe other rooms are better but I would seriously consider staying in my car overnight at the ferry terminal rather than staying here again.

Room was absolutely beautiful, spacious and lovely decor. Breakfast was great and it was good value for money however the staff was very hidden for most our stay one saw them while handing keys over and at breakfast while being served. Parking is limited there is only the drive which fits about 3-4 cars depending on size and its a... More

Had the misfortune to book into this hovel for two nights, after booking in and seeing the room I made it my mission to spend as little time as possible in the room. The room appeared to have come straight out of the 1970's, with a flowery carpet and polyester bed spread, the sheets were ill fitting which meant that... More

This hotel was booked for one night as it was cheap. You get what you pay for and it was adequate. Room was Ok size for one night although out dated and needed TLC. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The shower wasnt great. We followed instructions for hot water which was fine. There wasn't much... More

We booked this hotel through Booking.com. It only cost us £35.00 for a double room. We were not looking for anything great. We were greeted at the door and handed the keys and told the room was somewhere upstairs. We didn't want any fuss just a room. A bit like staying at old aunt Ethel's house. Although the hotel was...

Stayed here one night due to catching the early ferry. We were not looking for anything extravagant and went for price and amenities. We got a double room with 4 poster bed with on-suite for £40. We were greeted at the door, registered, shown the room and given the keys - reading other posts this appears to be a problem... More
