We stayed with Margaret at the No 1 Guest House last week on our way back from Europe - as we have done with our children for the last 12 years. The house is a couple of minutes drive from the ferry port, and 5 min. walk from the town centre. The rooms are clean, smart and comfortable, and have... More

Me and my family have been coming back here for years. The rooms are warm and comfortable, service is brilliant and the location is perfect for easy access to all of Dover's main attractions as well as the port.

We found this B&B on the Internet for a short stay during the summer. It is very centrally located, easy walking distance to the castle. The room we had was a little on the small side, but excellent value and had a private entrance onto the back garden. Breakfast served in the bedroom was a little unusual at first, but... More

We stayed at Number One Guest House in mid-August 2013 for 2 nights. We found the proprietors to be friendly and helpful, providing us with directions, recommendations for places to eat, information about the history of Dover. The landlord even gave us a lift up the road to the castle. The breakfasts were tasty and accommodated a vegetarian diet. It... More

Very nice B&B, pleasant owner. The house is charming, both inside and out, Listed building. Breakfast was nice - no porridge but tradition English breakfast and some good vegetarian options. We stayed for one night after returning from the continent. Very nice overall. One caveat - Some reviews mention a damp or cold room. They are referring to room number... More

After touring the UK for 3 months, I can honestly say that we have voted this as being the best B&B that we stayed in. (And we stayed in quite a few) We stayed for 3 nights. It was clean and comfortable and had the most wonderful olde worldy charm about it. I loved the gorgeous breakfast area of our... More

Excellent service, a truly lovely garden, own entrance, comfortable bed... what more could we ask for? We spent a single night in Dover to explore the town, the cliffs and the castle and this was a perfect spot which ticked all our boxes. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

Margaret and John are the most welcoming couple ever. Our stay (along with another couple) was for only one night on 3 May prior to going over on the ferry. We first stayed there 20 years ago when John's mother was running it. I was so pleased that this delightful B&B had not changed. Everything is provided - much the... More
