“Excellent location; very warm hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We visited Dover and areas around it. The location is super, just 10 min walk to Dover Castle, 10 walk to the beach and 15 mn to clifs. Room and all house was very clean and tidy,and the age of the house gave a sense of history. Breakfast was nice; we had vegetarian breakfast which was superb. When we visit Dover next time, we will def stay in Churchill Guest House.

Room Tip: None of the rooms were the same; each one is very unique.

This guest house is it an excellent location right at the base of Castle Hill. The room was nice and clean and the breakfast was more then excellent. The true value of this B&B comes from the hosts themselves. Alastair and Betty are friendly, informative and go out of their way to help their guests.

Just a short taxi ride from the ferry port and located at the foot of the hill (a BIG hill) up to Dover Castle. We enjoyed our three day stay at Churchill House very much. Alastair and Betty were great hosts. We had several engaging conversations during and after the FULL English breakfast which we greatly enjoyed. Our room (The Spencer) was very comfortable and the all important Wi-Fi worked well. Our stay in Dover was very memorable due in large part to Dover Castle and Churchill House. Thanks again Betty and Alastair.

This clean, pleasant B & B would be an excellent choice when staying in Dover if that was the end of the review. But the owners Alastair and Betty go "the extra mile" to make your stay enjoyable. Our room for 3 nights was the Victoria, large, bright and bathroom that was perfect. It was a ground floor room but steps are unavoidable. The generous breakfast was in a property next door but the short walk was absolutely no problem. The B & B is across from the Whitehorse Pub - a must stop for channel swimmers and anyone who enjoys a excellent fish & chips. You are in the center of Dover close to everything including the bus stop if you are traveling to Canterbury or such. You could also walk UP to the castle and if he is available, Alastair will drive you up and the return walk down is simple. Our stay in Dover was pre-cruise and the ease of staying at the Churchill has us wanting to return.

Had 2 rooms Sept 14 for a party of 3 and everyone loved the experience. Alaister and his family really know how to make their guests feel comfortable. After a great experience in 2012, my stay in 2013 was just as good.

Room Tip: Great location. Near the castle yet less than 10 minutes to walk to the edge of the Channel.

When we seen the picture of the Clementine Suite online, my husband and I knew it's what we were looking for. Nice, roomy bedroom and bathroom and yet cozy. We really enjoyed our breakfast and talking with Alaister and his wife and the other guests staying there. It was an experience that we wouldn't have had at a hotel chain.

Dover is a wonderful, small town! We walked up the hill to the castle from the Inn. I will NEVER do that again!!! I'm not 20! Take a cab! We did enjoy walking around the town and having dinner at the pub.

Alaister called a taxi for us to take us to the port for our cruise. Even though the port is close, he advised us that it was a hard walk with luggage. The cab was about 5 pounds.

We wish we had more time at The Churchill!

Room Tip: There is a little street noise, but we had the windows open and we kind of liked it!

A very cosy, clean and exceptionally well run guest house in an ideal location. Alastair and his wife own and manage the place in a very friendly manner making you feel being home.
All the provided facilities in the room are at a very high level, especially towels, mattresses and goose down pillows.
...and the breakfast is an experience on its own...
Highly recommended!
