“A lovely B&B”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is a lovely B&B situated within easy walking distance of the town centre and 5 minutes drive from the port at Dover. We stayed here for 1 night in a family room prior to catching the Calais ferry. We had already been sent an e-mail with details of how to locate the property and a list of recommended places to eat in the town and on arrival we were welcomed with drinks and more information about the town, including a map.
The friendly and helpful hosts made us very welcome and the room and beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a good range of things to choose from and was very plentiful.
We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to others.

I arrived late due to train being cancelled but was accommodated quickly and professionally.
The room was a single, with shower,sink and toilet. Bedding was soft and comfortable, small tv with freeview, condiments tray and bottled water. Portable air conditioner and portable heater in room also. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment, location is 5-10mins taxi from Dover Port.

I have stayed in this fabulous little B&B in Dover on three separate occasions, the most recent on 2nd August. I train in Dover harbour with the Channel Swimming training group, and need somewhere comfortable and reliable to stay for these training weekends.

On arrival, Di greeted me warmly and showed me up to my room. (Room 6 - small single, en suite). She offered me a hot drink and gave me the breakfast menu so I could select my breakfast for the morning.

The room is small, but contains everything you need for a short stay. The bed is very comfortable and has good quality linens. I had an excellent night's sleep. The ensuite shower room is small, but well laid out and has a great shower (ideal for washing off the harbour water after a long swim!). The bathroom had nice fluffy towels and good quality toiletries. The free WiFi was also an additional bonus in the room. My room and the rest of the B&B were very clean.

Breakfast was amazing! They have an extensive breakfast menu. I selected a fruit salad followed by a full english breakfast. This was complemented by tea, fresh juices and toast. The menu had a variety of choices, e.g. scrambled eggs on toast, pancakes with maple syrup, porridge with banana. All breakfasts are freshly cooked to order and are really well presented - definitely worth paying the £6 supplement for breakfast.

I had a very good overnight stay and will be back again later in the season.

Thank you for your very kind comments - we love to welcome back those guests that have stayed with us previously and for those brave folks coming to Dover numerous times over the summer to undertake training to swim The English Channel in order to raise funds for charities - we have the greatest admiration! We're delighted you enjoyed your stays with us here at Maison Dieu Guest House in Dover - and we look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future!

The owners were the nicest people and made us an delicious and plentiful English breakfast. Our stay was wonderful. The location of the B&B was great, as it was near all the shops in Dover. It was also close to the castle and entrance to the Cliffs of Dover. We had a comfortable bed and it was very clean.

We couldn't fault our stay at Maison Dieu. The en-suite room was extremely comfortable and our hosts Di and Barry very obliging. It was a short, pleasant walk to a top class Italian restaurant that was reasonably priced as recommended by Di. We recommend Maison Dieu as a quality bed and breakfast.

We spent one night at Maison Dieu and would happily recommend this b&b. The owners, Di and Barry, made us very welcome with a drink on arrival and our beautiful family room at the back of the house overlooked the garden and castle. The bed was very comfortable and the shower hot and refreshing. We chose full English breakfasts from the menu the night before and these were cooked to order for the time we requested (be sure to arrive in the breakfast room a little earlier to enjoy your cereals etc). Di recommended several restaurants in the area and we chose La Scala. The lamb dish was superb. The guest house is within walking distance of everything and I do not think you could find a nicer place to stay in Dover.

Room Tip: Room 1 is at the back of the house, overlooking the garden and castle

We spent 3 nights and were very happy. Di and Barry are friendly, helpful and well organised and the B and B is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. There is off street parking or, if that should be full, a public car park just across the road. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back, which was very quiet. Also had a view of the castle on the horizon.
