I stayed in Apartment #2 for ten days/nights. It was very relaxing, clean and enjoyable. What a great location!!! Dover Beach is a 5 minute walk away. In close proximity to St. Lawrence Gap, there are many bars and restaurants to choose from. When not in the mood for eating out, Dover Market is nearby so that you can purchase food to prepare in your room. This is not a 5 star hotel; however, it meets the needs for a relaxing stay away from home. Renting a car is an option; however, access to public transportation is a short 5 minute walk away. Additionally, you can make arrangements with Nigel, a taxi driver, for more personal transportation needs. I found NIgel to be very reliable. Iris, the owner, is a very friendly person who goes out of her way to make sure that all of your needs are met. For the traveller on a budget who wants to experience a relaxing atmosphere, great hospitality, and a great location, you can't find a better value. I highly recommend the Blue Dolphin Inn apartments.
