Lovely view from bedroom window. Comfortable bed. Clean room and ensuite. Really good breakfast with the largest choice of menu we have ever come across. Excellent host. Best bed and breakfast we have been to.

We have just spent two weeks travelling in South East England, and Crabble Hill House had to be the pick of all the accommodation in which we stayed. It was reasonably priced, the room, decorated in Art Deco style, was very large with big comfy bed, gorgeous views over the garden and hills and all the normal amenities provided in the room. Gary the owner could not have been more welcoming. He even carried our bags up to the room. He recommended a lovely pub a couple of villages away for a great dinner. In the morning the breakfast he prepared was yummy - smoked salmon, bacon, eggs, etc. He was available for a chat and did not just serve and disappear. The house is also only about a 5 minute drive from the high street of Dover. We would definitely stay here again if ever again in Dover.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house have great views.

We stayed one night here on our way back from Calais. It is a lovely building and our room was very spacious and well equipped with stunning views over the garden and valley. We had a large bathroom and tea and coffee facilities, including biscuits. Gary was very friendly and helpful, advising us where to go for dinner and gave information on the bus routes and places to see. The breakfast was excellent - freshly cooked full English if you wanted it (which we did!). There was also a great variety of cold food on offer. We had a bit of trouble finding it, mainly because we hadn't realised there is a village called "River" and there is a "London Road Dover" and a "London Road River" which is different. The house is on a busy road but noise wasn't a problem. For dinner we just walked down the road to the local pub which had "Curry and Quiz" night on a Tuesday which we enjoyed - then got the bus back. Would recommend Crabble Hill House to anyone.

Met by Gary and were immediately impressed by his friendliness and the lovely home he is sharing. The rooms vary from smaller to spacious but all are equally fully equipped and comfortable. The breakfasts are full of variety from fresh fruit to full breakfasts perfectly cooked. He also had lots of good advise on what to see and where to eat and this made the stay a lot more fun and successful. The B&B is perfectly positioned to get to all of the Dover / Kent area and parking is a breeze with a good variety of food a walk away or a 10min drive to get a little further afield. While the road out the front is busy, noise is not an issue. Excellent B&B with an excellent host.

This is a lovely older home with pretty stained glass windows, hanging flower baskets outside, decorated in Art Deco style with a huge beautiful backyard. Gary is very friendly and helpful, and our room was large and comfortable and well supplied. The bathroom is large and the shower was really good. The property is very quiet. Breakfast was exceptionally good, eaten at a big bay window overlooking the garden, valley, and hills. Make sure you get good directions from Gary before you go. We arrived late after a grueling day and couldn't find it. We stopped and asked two people and they sent us to the wrong place. Finally we stopped at another B&B to ask. She said she's asked on a regular basis how to get to Crabble Hill House. It's higher up the road than expected and the small sign is very faded and hard to read. Other than that, this is a great place to stay.

We have been using this guesthouse on our trips to an from France for some time now and have never been disappointed. The beds are very comfortable, the decor pleasant and the welcome warm. There are some nice pubs to eat at nearby and despite being near the centre of Dover, River has it's own character and villagey feel. Breakfast at Gary's is always excellent, with just about everything you could possibly want on offer. All in all, highly recommended.
