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

We only stayed one night, but the hotel was good for what we wanted. A very short walk from Victoria train station. The room was clean, we had a tv,fan and facilities to make drinks. Nice clean sheets and towels. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was what we have at home and was enough to start the day.... More

For being closed to Victoria Station and most of the amenities my wife and I were interested in, the Hotel was in prime location and considering London, it was good pricing. If you are accustomed to the US type hotels the experience can be shocking as rooms space in this hotel were just for the bed and yourself, the bathroom... More

I have written reviews in many cities across the world in many different hotels. This hotel is in a great location right by the Victoria Station and within walking distance of Buckingham Palace and Big Ben etc. I enjoyed my two night stay at this hotel as it was trouble free and comfortable. The following are good points; 1-Tea making... More

The Dover Hotel is located in a fantastic area just a few minutes from Victoria coach station. The staff is very friendly and ladies at the breakfast room always very polite and with a big smile every morning. The rooms are what you can expect from Europe- small but for me was definitely fine because i would only go back... More

I recently stayed here while on a 2 day sightseeing trip to london with my daughter and young son. We were allocated a spacious family room with w/c and shower, downstairs, which was not exactly 'light and airy' as advertised but it was fine. The breakfast, although just basic continental was quite sufficient and we received extra toast when requested.... More

Yes location is the only attraction in staying in this hotel. I was given a room on the third floor and had to lug my luggages up there. Fortunately they allowed me to leave the big luggage in the reception area. At least the receptionist was helpful. Room and shower area were small and hardly walking space. Nevertheless it's 10...

I'm rating the Dover Hotel as excellent because I think it is a terrific value for the money. It is located about a 10 minute walk from Victoria Station which is a major hub with an underground stop, a national rail stop, and a major bus terminal located it. The room was small but comfortable, nice shower, good beds and... More

We spent two nights here. Room was small but clean with a fan, tv, coffee and tea, and private bathroom. The hotel offers breakfast- basic but good- except for the coffee which came out of one of these terrible instant mixing machines... Great location right next to Victoria station. Some street noise at night, but we thought it was good... More
