Spent one night here, having booked at very short notice, and were so pleased with our choice. We stayed in the Badger Room, on the first floor, & it was lovely. The bed was super comfortable, and there was even a sofa to relax on. We also enjoyed the extra touches, such as the small decanter of sherry - very warming on a winter evening. The breakfast was very good as well, particularly the freshly made blueberry muffins.
There was lots to do in the local area as well - don't miss the White Cliffs, where you can do some excellent walking. We parked in the National Trust car park, on the outskirts of Dover, & walked to St Margarets at Cliffe & back again. It was a good afternoon's walk, with a teashop at the end, in the NT visitor centre. We also visited Samphire Hoe, which was good for a couple of hours - again you can get refreshments there, even in winter! From there we went on to Walmer Castle, much smaller than Dover Castle, but great for an afternoon.
