Nice location. Within walking distance to train depot, Dover Castle and downtown. Enjoyed the backyard garden. Breakfast served in room. Owners very friendly and helpful with direction to local sites. If ever in Dover again we would stay again

We had a really comfortable night here with the children before our ferry. The owners were very friendly. Lovely gardens and really useful garage parking. I must admit to feeling a little disappointed when I saw on the website (when we returned home) that the family room is charged at £75 (including breakfast) and we were charged £100 (without breakfast...

Given that some of those reviewers, so called, can't even spell I'm very much surprised at some of the thoughts they are suggesting to other peoples minds. If they left this Guest House without having the sheer guts to speak up about "so called" problems merely confirms the better reviews to me!! My family will be staying for sure.
