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.

Stayed 3 nights while exploring the area. Got a good price deal through booking.com. Welcomed by Tony the manager and shown straight to our room (room 3). This was at the back of the building so there wasn't much of a view (overlooking the kitchen and back area flat roof) but it was away from the road and once the... More

We were looking for a place to hold our daughter's wedding reception. You will not believe the fantastic deal that we found at the Five Bells. This is a wonderful little venue with several apartments and rooms which were made available to our guests for overnight after the wedding. The buffet food was amazing with a great variety, Tony &...

We stayed there for a night only, on our way back to France. The Five Bells is located in a tiny hamlet less than 10 minutes away from Dover Ferry terminal. Welcome was really warm, we were led to a beautiful, clean and fresh bedroom with all you need in it, including free Wifi. We had a couple of drinks... More

We stayed at the Five Bells for 3 nights in September 2014. The room was spotlessly clean with crisp white linen on a very comfortable bed. There were many choices for the optional breakfast at very reasonable prices . The management and staff were very attentive, friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. If we are ever in...

Stayed here overnight before a Dover crossing, ideal location for this! Warm welcome and well impressed with the size of apartment. Had a few drinks before eating, very standard menu and cook better myself at home but the welcome made up for this somewhat, until I found a hair 'stuck' in my chicken towards the last pieces...informed them at the...
