We stayed for one night for a theatre trip and it was fine for that as it was convenient and friendly. The room was small and the bathroom incredibly tiny so it would not be brilliant for an extended stay. The dining room is also small so we had to wait a short while for our breakfast. However when we... More

This hotel was conveniently close to Victoria coach station, clean and the staff helpful with directions and friendly. However, the rooms were very small, if you had a suitcase you would have to step over it.You could clean your teeth, go to the toilet and shower all at the same time! Breakfast was good, cereal, toast, yogurt, juice and coffee.... More

Dover was ok - nothing spectacular. The sheets and towels were clean which is all that really matters when you're only sleeping there. The bathroom is teeny tiny. Shower is awkward and you can help but soak the entire 2ft x 2ft bathroom floor. Great location though, super close to Victoria station. Breakfast is totally sufficient - toast, cereal and... More

If i could i would have scored the hotel 2.5 The hotel was clean but needs lot of TLC. Decor was dated and and in need of updating. Didnt stay for breakfast so cant comment Have stayed in better hotels in this part of London for the same cost and therefore doubt i would stay here again.

I made the mistake of booking this through laterooms.com so I didn't see the pictures on here, only the more professional ones on there. Calling this a hotel is pretty generous. I know it's in the centre of London and very cheap, but for £110 per night I would expect to have a toilet in my room instead of a... More

Fantastic Hotel, easy Access from the tube, so easy to get around. Great location for site seeing buses first pick ups, and walking distance from the London eye. Hotel has cosy rooms and the staff are so helpful, will be going back.....

The Dover hotel is basically a bed-and-breakfast located in central London. The major plus point is its location, less than half a kilometer from the Victoria station, (rail and tube). Also it's pretty reasonable if you are traveling on a budget. It suited us a lot as we spent most of the day sightseeing, and just came back at night... More

The Dover Hotel, in terms of London standards, is average. However London standards are abysmally low compared to Asian and even continental hotels. The room was tiny and the shower a somewhat aged plastic monoblock unit miserable to wash in. However everything worked - no burntout bulbs, hot water and comfortable bed. However abundant chipped paintwork. The breakfast too is... More

The room was basic but generally clean with a comfy bed. The bedding smelt somewhat of stale smoke. Breakfast was a very stressful experience, especially for someone who's not a morning person like me! Food was basic but the breakfast room is far to small to accommodate the number of people staying at the hotel. I was left standing around... More

Booked hotel for location and price. On hindsight should have paid an extra £30 and stayed somewhere more decent. Staff at Dover very friendly, hotel itself is very scruffy and basic. The carpeted walls were our first impression so we didn't have too high an expectation for the room! Room was small, dated with very badly hung pictures. Fan provided... More
