The Hotel is close Victoria Station and the Bus station to go to the airport. We just chosen it because of it. We stay two nights and the room was not so comfortable and the bathroom is part of the room. In the price was included the breakfast .. (just 3 toast each and a cup of coffee) . I... 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

I spent one night at the Dover hotel for a brief visit in London. Location is excellent, walking distance to most of the main sights, close to public transport. As for the hotel itself, the room was small but adequate for 1 night. The bed linen was clean, room tidy. Tea/coffee facilitates available, fan and TV. Bed was comfortable and... More

I chose the Dover Hotel as I know the Victoria area and this was the most competitive pricewise. The hotel was a typical Victoria hotel, nothing outstanding – nothing too bad either. I think it was overpriced for what you get but this is London, choice is limited. The room was in the attic, up a very narrow stair, and... More

My 17 year old daughter and myself stayed for 3 nights at the Dover Hotel - we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who was helpful throughout our stay. Our room was exactly as described and expected - the bathroom small but functioned perfectly. Breakfast was served downstairs - not many tables but again, not a problem for us.... More

I didn't expect much although the price wasn't the cheapest it was brilliantly located. The room was clean and had all the usual basics. The bed wasn't the best quality and the shared bathrooms weren't desirable. But again you're not paying for luxury here. Would expect in future to pay more like £40 for the single with shared bathroom. The... More

Thanks for taking time to review our hotel. We provide both basic and En suite rooms. We provide customers with choice according to their individual budget. We are situated in the heart of London and our prices are very comparative. I hope you will chose En suite room on your next visit and you will experience a big difference. More
