I stayed for two nights on business, and will certainly recommend this B&B to my associates. I received a warm welcome from Diane and Barry, and even a cup of tea brought to my room. The room was spotlessly clean and very well appointed and maintained. As a single room, it was not large, and I was advised to take only an overnight bag upstairs to the room, with my suitcase being locked away. But the room had all the necessary amenities, and I slept comfortably. For breakfast there s a good choice of cooked alternatives, and I can certainly recommend the porridge! Its location is good, close to the town centre and 15 minutes walk from the railway station and the ferry terminal. I paid about a quarter of what I would have paid at the nearby premier inn, and much prefer giving the business to private individuals who are doing their best to provide quality service.

My partner and I spent 2 nights (interspersed with a France day trip) - we received a warm welcome which included a complimentary cuppa, much appreciated after a long drive, The room was en-suite & spotless and nothing was too much trouble for the Hosts. Diane & I will definitely stay again!

Again, we are delighted to recieve such positive feedback - and crossing the Channel for a day in France is just one of the many things to do here in Dover. Our Special Offer '2 nights Ensuite Double or Twin Bed & Breakfast for £100.00' has been so popular we have extended it for another week!

Thank you for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you both again sometime soon.

We just stayed for one night, but we were given a warm welcome, supplied with all necessary information, and even got a cup of tea in our room. There was everything we needed in the room. The house was very clean, but also cosy. Ample parking space for our car in front of the house. Just a couple of minutes drive from the port. Delicious breakfast, nicely decorated tables. We did not feel like customers, but like guests. We will be back!

We always stay at the Maison Dieu when we are overnighting in Dover. The rooms are always spotless, albeit rather crowded with furniture. Our beds have always been comfortable and we have never been disturbed by traffic noise at night. The welcome has always been warm and always offered a pot of tea/coffee and biscuits while our luggage is taken to our rooms. Barry and Di are excellent hosts and always ready to help with advice and information. Brealfast offers a good selection and there is free off-road parking. The town centre is about 5 minutes level walk and the house is about two minutes drive from the East Ferry Port

This is lovely! - Barry & I are always delighted to welcome back guests that have stayed previously. Whilst we fully appreciate that the convenience of our location (just a few minutes from shops, restaurants, launderette, stations and port etc.) and the free parking play a big part, it's lovely to know that the very genuine welcome offered to our guests both old and new is appreciated and for our part it's great to see familiar faces and enjoy a chat and a 'catch up' - long may it continue!

We stayed at Maison Dieu on 19th September for 3 nights in room 1.
We had a lovely warm welcome from Diane, telling us the local places to go to and giving us a map. Diane then got us a mug of tea and biscuits, also providing gluten free biscuits for myself as I have Coeliacs Disease. We would say this is the warmest welcome we have got from a B and B and most Hotels.
Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We had a view of Dover Castle from our window which was a bonus.
A fantastic breakfast, once again providing gluten free bread and sausages for myself. My husband also liked the choice of breakfast offered. Muffins with scrabled eggs and salmon. Plus scrambled egg on toast with mushrooms and bacon. A plentiful breakfast to set us up for the day.
We visited Dover Castle, Deal Castle and Walmer Castle. Also on our visit HMS Kent was docked in Dover and open to the public. What a lovely end to our 3 night break.
Thank you very much Diane and Barry. We will definately be back.
Gill and Pete

Room Tip: Our room was a family and at the back so it was very quiet and had the view of Dover Castle
