It is set back from the street, so there are no street noises to keep you awake. Pet friendly and very easy-going regarding the pet policy. We had a late arrival and the room we requested was available. The room was exceptionally clean with no aromas of former pets. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. My only complaint is that...

We had a suite - two queen beds and pull out sofa. Room was clean, beds were comfortable, linens nice, breakfast adequate. The in room Keurig was a nice bonus.

The rooms and beds are of a good standard, but there was no complimentary bottled water, using the tap water in the provided coffee machine was inadvisable as it adversely affected the taste. The breakfast was served on polystyrene plates and bowls with plastic cutlery, which is one of my pet hates.

The Holiday Inn Express in Dover is available on a regular basis as part of the PointSaver in the IHG program. A 5000 points a night for this hotel is well worth the price (especially when it ends up to be 4000 points after all the rebates). The hotel is situated off the main highway in town.
