Described as a boutique hotel, this is a restaurant with rooms in a pleasant location close to Dover. We had Dinner both nights and the food is very good, service varied from excellent to adequate mainly the former and on the whole the staff were extremely accommodating. The 4 course taster menu is first rate and draws dishes from the... More

One would expect very good service! Well it wasn't which is a shame because it lets them down. Waiters should be trained when is appropriate to take plates, and to talk to customers in a pleasant manner. My advise to the marquis send your staff on some training courses.

Unfortunately for me I did not find this break cheap! The hotel is nicely decorated with lots of things one can buy. For example the smellies we love to take were all big and for sale. My room was really small compared to my friends although we all paid the same price. The toilets were difficult to flush making it... More

We stayed here as a party of 6 on a Groupon deal. Fantastic value for 2 nights b and b, and a 4 course taster menu. The rooms were lovely, with comfy and large beds, beautifully furnished with complimentary cafetiere coffee, home made cookies and bottled water. We were in the Nailbourne room on the ground floor, handy for the... More

We stayed here as we're going to a funeral nearby. The staff were lovely and the rooms spacious and luxurious. Underfloor heating in the large bathroom and a huge double ended bath for two, although sadly I didn't have time to soak in it. My sister's room was a little smaller (i nabbed the junior suite!) but was cosy and... More

We stayed at the Marquis to visit Dover Castle and Walmer Castle over Friday and Saturday night. My Wife found the restaurant with rooms through Google and we had an excellent time. Nespresso coffee pods and tea facilities provided as well as still and sparkling water and homemade shortbreads, plus a great, friendly welcome on our arrival. Dressing gowns and... More

We booked up the hotel on a Travelzoo offer. The Hotel is excellent - relaxing atmosphere, good wine and ale, excellent food and service. Some really nice walks onto the Kent Downs from the doorstep. Highly recommended

With a deal incorporating two nights bed & breakfast & a sumptuous 7-course degustation dinner, we had ample time to sample the delights of this country inn. Although the old part of the building has undergone extensive renovations blending some of the original features with modern decor, our room was in the new extension & featured an impressive open-plan bath/shower...

Great evening with excellent service and even better food. We had the 7 course taster menu and thought we might end up still hungry. Could not have been more wrong! There was plenty of everything. The dessert was to die for! The hotel room was clean and comfortable with the little extras like slippers and dressing gowns. Would recommend this... More
