“The most beautiful view in England”

I came to England to swim the channel and left with a treasure much greater thanks to the wonderful people we met here and our fantastic accommodations at Castle View. From the front window, you can see the cliffs of France. Imagine, making a cup of coffee and pulling the blinds to see the blue English Channel and France in the distance to start your day. Absolutely awesome. From the bedroom patio doors, you gaze upon Castle Dover. There isn't a better spot in Dover to have these incredible views!

The apartment itself is ideal for those staying for more than a few days. There is a complete kitchen, in which we made roast chicken, pizza, a fantastic pesto pasta and enjoyed a full English breakfast each morning with eggs, bacon, black pudding and thick toast made from fresh bread. Morrison's grocery store is the best grocery store I've ever seen!

We enjoyed tea on the private back patio, looking over the immaculate lawn and beautiful flower garden with calla lilies, fuchsia and roses. The neighborhood cat, Ginger, stopped by every few evenings to get her snack. She seemed particularly fond of prosciutto.

Mick and Helen are gracious hosts. We try to be self-reliant when staying at a rental flat, but Helen always made sure we had fresh linens and towels whenever needed. Since I was doing a lot of swimming in Dover Harbor, having a washing machine was wonderful! They also were happy to suggest local sights to see and we weren't disappointed. Dover Castle is spectacular, and steeped in history.

My 86-year old mother and 19-year old daughter joined us and felt completely at home in their room with bunk beds and a large wardrobe. We had a great time together, playing cards and watching movies on the big flat-screen TV.

Although my channel swim was not successful, my husband and I WILL come back to Dover to stay at Castle View. It is, by far, one of the BEST accommodations we have ever enjoyed and a great value for all the amenities that are included. Staying in Dover? Castle View is your home.

“Beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I stayed here with my husband and teenage daughter and can't fault it. It was spotlessly clean, furnished to a high standard and has lovely views. The beds are comfy and the owners are lovely people. I highly recommend Castle View and I will return.
