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.

A lovely place to stay, an easy walk from the train station and up to the castle. Also good spot to start walk on the Vera Lynn trail up onto the White Cliffs. And they had no trouble with us storing our luggage until after we had visited the castle and were ready leave Dover.

After receiving a call from This guest house, I wasn't able to hear anything so I called back. After the first rude person hung up on me, I called back again, for the second person denied calling me and refused to discuss the original person hanging up on me.

We enjoyed an excellent overnight stay at The Castle House Guesthouse prior to early ferry crossing the following morning. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we were unable to enjoy what we're sure would have been (based on other reviews) a splendid breakfast. Despite this, we were kindly provided with a more than adequate pack-up breakfast which was thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. We were booked into the family room which was clean and spacious but with a cosy feel. Very traditional decor, unlike many places now which are soulless and impersonal. No negative comments to make. Well located for a good pub 70yds away if you require an evening meal. Will definitely stay again when in Dover. Many thanks.

Quintessential English B&B! We are here now and love this place. Free parking on the street out front is super convenient. Lovely old building and rooms filled with antique furniture. If you're looking for a real true old English B&B experience, this is perfect! Upon arrival Sharon is super friendly and makes you feel at home. You climb a typical old charming English building narrow staircase to get to your room. Large rooms with lots of light, comfy bed and linens, tea & coffee, and good toiletries. Breakfast is excellent! As much as possible the ingredients are sourced locally and there is something for everyone, including vegetarian. Location is just around the corner from The White Horse Pub that dates back to 1365 and survived both wars. It's about a 10 minute walk to Dover Castle and about a 20 minute walk to the pier for excellent views of the White Cliffs of Dover. If you're looking for elevators and valet service, go somewhere else, BUT it'll be your loss because you'll be missing a real English experience at a charming B&B with a super friendly host, comfy rooms and excellent breakfast!

Conveniently located near the castle and close to the city centre, this is an old family house turned into a B&B type of accommodation. The room we got, on the first floor, was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were very friendly and nice. There was a family atmosphere that we liked very much. The breakfast was very good (I had my first porridge ever here!). We needed to leave our luggage before check-in and after check-out time, and we arranged this easily. They also have storage for 2 bikes, if needed (but make sure you book this with your reservation, because it fills up quickly: first come, first served). The price was very convenient. In sum, when I go back to Dover, I'll go back to Castle House, and I highly recommend it.

Not much to look at from the outside, but for the sign never realizing it was a guest house, but most intriguing inside and in a great location. The oldest pub in Dover is next door, 2 super markets and the best fish and chips in Dover just a few steps away. It is located at the base of the road going to the Dover Castle. suggest you take a cab up as after our walk up, we were too spent to tour the vast area enclosed behind the walls. Plenty to eat at the cooked to order breakfast in the basement.
