Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hosts are wonderful and full of information about Dover and its history. The breakfast was cooked to order and they use high quality fresh ingredients. The guest house is a short walk from the train station, but Google directions take you on an indurect path to get there. As you exit the station look to the right to see a set of stairs. The guest house is at the top of those stairs. If you have large bags follow the Google directions. I would highly recommend.

The owners were ever so warm, welcoming and friendly. They have plenty of pamphlets for things to see and do around Dover.

Would have to say, we forgot to mention mention that my mum isn’t the best with climbing stairs, so room wasn’t really ideal being on the 3rd floor, but we still managed.

Breakfast was lovely and filling, with plenty options of cereal and/or cooked breakfast.

Overall, a 9 out of 10 star stay (deduction only for the stair situation, which we take full accountability for)

We LOVED the Norman Guest House! We were there 8 nights, and had a wonderful time. Was very close to the train station, and we SO much enjoyed the various pubs and restaurants around Dover. Be sure to visit the Vinoteq wine bar on Thursday nights for live jazz!

The owners were friendly and welcoming. The rooms were very comfortable. The whole place was clean and well looked after.
Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked.
Very convenient location for Dover Priory train station.

The host is very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are ok. I wish I knew that the guest house was next to busy road and train. I am a very light sleeper and noise kept waking me up during the night. The bed in our room was very hard so sleep was almost impossible for me. Kids and hubby did not complain though. 5-10 mins walk to find anywhere to have dinner. Cooked breakfast is ok. Kids liked hot chocolate made with milk - unlike the watery stuff they often get served up. Some street parking, however if you ask the host, he will arrange for free off-street parking behind guest house.

We booked a cruise out of Dover and wanted to arrive one day early. The Norman Guest House fit our plans perfectly. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast was very good. When we arrived, we noted that we would need a taxi to the port the following day and the proprietor very quickly made a reservation for us. This B&B is on a main road and is close to the train station (which was a draw when we booked), but I really didn't notice much noise until around 0630 in the morning.

I've been here with my girlfriend for 1 night only but it was a great experience! Rooms are very clean, breakfast delicious, unbeatable price and most important the gentleman who is running the place (sorry, don't remember the name) is really nice and helpful! Location is also perfect, just 1 min walking distance from the train station and 5 from the centre. I absolutely recommend this place to everybody!

My wife and I were here overnight, and were very glad we did! The owner was super nice, the room and bathroom very clean, and the English breakfast hit the spot! Would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Dover to stay here.
