“Nice stay at the West Dover Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2010

Stayed at the West Dover Inn for two nights during leaf peeping season. We had a suite at a reasonable price although the price did not include breakfast. Overall the condition of the Inn was good. Our suite was located over the tavern so it was noisy in our room until around 10 p.m. Trying to relax while watching tv in front of the fireplace after driving all day was difficult with the noise. For me this was a nuisance but most people probably would not mind the noise. There was a two person jacuzzi tub and a gas fireplace in the suite both of which were nice. We also had satellite tv although the screen of the tv was small. Phil was friendly but we really did not have much interaction with the inn keepers. Grounds were very nicely done. We would definitely stay here again and we really enjoyed having the nice suite.

Arrived on a rainy day, immediately felt welcome and comfortable. Our suite was comfortable, clean and cozy, gas fire, lovely wide board floors, modern bathroom. Service was attentive, prompt and friendly. The attached restaurant is excellent with reasonable prices - we enjoyed dinner and breakfast the following morning. Only quibble was with the queen bed - it was pretty hard.

You couldn't ask for a more friendly family to take care of you. Room was lovely (could use king size beds)
What a great suprise the restaurant held. The food was worth the term " Fine Dinning" with beautiful presentation.

The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was terrific and reasonably priced, and the inn keeper was very pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again.

This was our second stay at the West Dover Inn. When I booked this time, I had not recognized the name of the place. As we pulled into the parking lot, my heart sank, but I hoped that in the past 2 or 3 years they had upgraded the bedding. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.

A firm mattress is paramount to my husband an me, as we have arthritis issues and are used to a lot of support. The place is cozy, the food is great, the innkeepers are as nice as can be. But I will not return unless they replace the mattresses (and sheets, for that matter).

My wife, son, daughter - in - law and I stayed at the West Dover Inn in West Dover, Vermont March 10th and 11th. We were very impressed with our accomodations. The rooms were comfortable and inviting. The fireplaces in each of our rooms were welcoming after a day's skiing. The meals were excellent. We especially enjoyed the local flavor of Vermont maple syrup and cheese. The singer in the bar reminded us of Gordon Lightfoot and provided wonderful entertainment. Phil and Kathy Gilpin were kind, hospitable and went out of their way to accomodate us. They recommended shopping, ski rentals and other local tips. Phil has a great collection of sports memorabilia and a repetoire of stories he eagerly shares with his guests. We look forward to returning next fall.

A short review about how much fun we had this past weekend at the West Dover Inn. Shopping at the outlets in Manchester followed by a great dinner Sat night at the restaurant. The food & service was great. The steak tips were delicious, the best we've had in a long time. A pianist to keep us relaxed and entertained during & throughout our dinner. The lounge after was really fun & exciting with a magician to entertain us, we're still talking about how he did all those tricks, (my husband thinks he knows, Ha, Ha), truly a professional.. The room was warm & cozy & to wake up in the morning to a great breakfast buffet was the perfect final touch. We will be back soon. Such a great time, and to think..... We don't even ski !!!!
