Positive Reviews

Cosy, clean and comfortable with great service

The majority of previous guests say the rooms at this inn are cosy and welcoming, with a high standard of cleanliness, tasteful furnishings, enough space to ensure comfort throughout the length of a stay, and facilities to make tea and coffee.

Outstanding breakfast with generous servings

Almost every reviewer mentions the delicious breakfast provided free of charge at the B&B, with comments on the wide selection available and the portion sizes. The full English breakfast in particular is a hit.

Ideal location for everything in Dover

The location of this B&B is reportedly ideal for almost every purpose, whether guests wish to explore Dover on foot or enjoy a short but relaxing stopover on the way to the Eurotunnel or ferry terminal.

Negative Reviews

Patchy Wi-Fi

Several previous guests say that the wireless internet connection at the hotel is a little unreliable, particularly those who stayed on the upper floors where the signal is reportedly quite weak.

Stairs could be a problem for some

Those who stayed on the upper stories of the B&B warn that some might find the stairs quite challenging, as they are steep and narrow according to reports. There is no elevator available at the inn.

Shared bathrooms a minor inconvenience

The majority of guests did not find the fact that they had to share a bathroom with others to be an inconvenience, but reviewers do mention this aspect in case potential guests would prefer to book an option with private bathrooms.
