We had a very pleasant stay here during the hottest 2 days so far this year. The bedrooms were rather warm, but that was hardly their fault and we weren't complaining about the weather! The beds were very comfortable, both rooms were a decent size and the bathrooms were fine, although the shower could be fitted higher up the wall... More

What a disappointment. I can only imagine that the room rates at this hotel are reflective of the fact that there is little if no other accommodation in the very beautiful area i.e. no competition - it seriously needs some. The White Cliffs Hotel looks great in the photographs - the reality is, in fact, a building and decor that... More

I went here for a wedding up the road and had one of the family apartments. The staff were very friendly and made the stay very pleasant! The garden is lovely and a great way to start and end the day with a great selection of food and drink. The family apartment was spacious and was perfect for our needs.

We were so hungry and could not find breakfast. The hotel has stopped serving breakfast and were not opening again to serve food for a couple hours (12 lunch time) fortunately for us they decided to be kind and serve us food even though they were busy and preparing for a big event. The food was really good quality and... More

This hotel was reasonably comfortable, but wasn't off the charts when it comes to amenities. In our opinion, it was a little over priced for what it turned out to be. We weren't unhappy with anything in particular, and it did the job just fine. It was relatively quiet and we got a good night sleep here.

We stayed at the White Cliffs Hotel for two nights after a long haul flight from Australia. The location is lovely - just 15 minutes walk to the cliffs and we walked to Dover Castle along the cliff tops. The rooms were clean and comfortable and decor in the bar and restaurant attractive. The food was great (including a complimentary... More

Only a stone's throw away from Dover Eastern Port, but in a lovely location, with attentive staff and a delicious meal at the restaurant, a good night's sleep in a comfy and warm (!!!) room, which I very much needed after Brexit; continental breakfast was included in the price, but what a breakfast it was!!! Parking no problem Will certainly... More

We had a brilliant time there. We were in the four poster room, which is very romantic. The place was clean, the service was personal and excellent, and the breakfast was superb. They even have their own beer. It's a friendly, relaxing place set in a beautiful village and near some amazing places to visit. Thoroughly recommend it.
