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.

Our first visit to Dover on Sea was in February 2015 short after the start of the B&B. Now 9 years later I think we have been here ca 20 times, never long stays, but each an one memorable 👍😊 thanks to Karen and Jurgens 🥰. We love them a lot and do not need to say more. Enjoy the place while they are still there 😍.

Everything was exceptional., the house, breakfast, the views and the area. Karen and Jürgen the hosts were lovely. We highly recommend staying there if you are in the area. It's a good base for touring round the Garden route as it is close to the different towns and the scenic drives.

The stay was a most comfortable and pleasurable experience. The sea view overlooking Cola Beach from our room balcony was magnificent. Access to the property and parking availability was good. Host Karen and Jurgen were attentive and are amazing people.

Lovely BNB located oceanside. Owners, Karen and Jurgens, were very friendly and interactive. Our room was clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you needed including a selection of teas, coffee, water and snacks. The breakfast was prepared by the owners and was exceptional. Location of the BNB was near a beach access and we enjoyed an early morning walk prior to having our breakfast. I would highly recommend this BNB and wished that we could have stayed longer.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this amazing beachfront property. Karen and Jurgen were brilliant hosts and were very helpful with recommending local restaurants and activities to do in the area, all of which were a great success. We stayed in Room 1, which had a lovely balcony with fabulous panoramic sea views, which was excellent for viewing passing wales and dolphins. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back if we are in the area again.

We botched up our reservation with another site and Dover on Sea was great at accommodating us at very short notice. We were absolutely thrilled with the service and the place was just perfect. Great location with a beautiful view of the ocean. Jurgen’s breakfast special was amazing. Would love to come back again sometime and we definitely recommend this place.

We had the main room which has a huge balcony to enjoy the stunning views. The breakfast is absolutely amazing (ask for the Jurgens' special) and is enjoyed with a view of the ocean. The hosts are wonderful and will assist with ideas on what to do in the area (which is a lot!). Cannot recommend enough.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the guest house. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The views of the sea from the property, and from the sea facing rooms are spectacular. I would definitely stay at Dover on Sea again. There is a marvellous beach in easy reach of the property.
