I always wanted to visit Dover and see their famous "White Cliffs" and Dover Castle. On my recent visit to the UK to see my son, a soloist with Birmingham Royal Ballet, I booked, blind, a two-day stay through the local travel information site and came directly, via train, from London Gatwick Airport. Castle Hill is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the train station and is only a five minute walk to Dover Castle. I arrived early, but to my surprise, my room was ready. The single room was small but quaint, clean, bathroom small but with a powerful and hot shower, and a perfectly working TV. The full English breakfast was superb and probably was one of the best I've ever had in the UK. Restaurant recommendations from Sharon, the co-owner, were "spot on". Castle Hill is an excellent guest house and a great deal for the money. It's location is perfect for anyone wanted to visit Dover Castle ( a must!!) and is energetic enough to walk to the "White Cliffs" (which I did with great joy!).
