We stayed here as a family of 5 before our very early ferry crossing. The management were friendly and the apartment was clean and plenty large enough for an over night stay.. There is a small step going into the bedroom that my youngest child hurt herself on. We were warned it was there, and I'm not blaming the place,... More

This is a country pub on the main but not very busy road between Dover and Deal. Stayed overnight on a Saturday after attending a wedding locally and arrived to discovery a busy (fun not rowdy) private party filling the pub. Our room (#2) was above the main bar so party noise filtered up but the music was turned off... More

We had a very nice and friendly greeting when we first arrived. We were shown to our room, which was a nice size with a great bathroom. The shower had great water pressure and we loved how hot the towel rack made our towels. Very toasty! The bed was comfortable and the coffee provided in the room was good. The... More

My family booked The Five Bells for a surprise 50th birthday party for me on Valentines evening. My daughter who made most of the arrangements said the owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful with the planning and preparations. The pub is perfect for a party with lovely sofa areas and dance floor. Everyone who attended have told... More

We stayed over for one night on the 15th feb before travelling by eurotunnel. We stopped in the apartment and it was lovely. Spacious, nicely decorated and had everything you could want. The hosts were friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough. As we were leaving early the next morning they were not available for breakfast but very kindly made... More

So, you get what you pay for and the Five Bells is not expensive and it does have a lot going for it just not everything! The owners are, welcoming and pleasant. The table linen is beautiful, white and starched as good as any five star hotel. The food is reasonable pub grub and no complaints about dinner. After a... More

This gives you the best of both worlds in that is a charming hotel and a charming pub. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. Evening meals and breakfasts are excellent and the staff extremely friendly and helpful.

We chose the Five Bells because of the many excellent reviews, and here begins another one! We stayed for one night before taking an early ferry to France; it is an easy 5-mile drive to the terminal. Our room was not large, but it was warm + comfortable + well-equipped = everything we needed for our overnight stay. We chose... More

Simple pub and b&b with friendly efficient service. We used it for an overnight stop before catching the ferry from Dover to Calais and I can wholeheartedly recommend it. The only disadvantage is the on street parking which was ok in January but may be limited in the Summer.
