“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Stayed in a double room with a seview on one of their 2-night winter breaks in February. The hotel is in a great location with easy access to all the local sights - cliffs, castle etc. The hotel is very smart, the room was clean and comfy and all the staff were super friendly and professional. It was a great value break, very relaxing and I couldn't recommend them more. Much better experience than some 5 stars I have stayed in. If I was travelling in the area again I would definitely stay repeat the experience. Thank you!

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms appear to be smaller but still well laid out.

Very friendly and pleasant staff made a long weekend in February relaxing. Excellent location for relaxing or sightseeing. Good size rooms, pleasant surroundings. Restaurant average, the A La Carte menu was not very extensive but reasonably priced. Would use again.

We stayed here on 16th Feb 2012. Got a good deal through Booking.com - 50.00 GBP for a double room.
The room was nice & clean, newly re-furbished. Rooms were extremely warm & toasty- no cold drafts at all.
We had some sandwiches in the afternoon they were standard. The breakfast buffet in the morning was good value & had a good spread. Service very attentive.
We could not get a room facing the sea- that was the only gripe. Else lovely stay with no issues. Would definitely return if we are in Dover.

What a great little find; set in a beautiful Victorian terrace with balconies overlooking the sea & quiet location. Inside the hotel has been completely revamped and the bedrooms although not huge are well appointed. The staff are very friendly and only too pleased to assist. Also parking is free nearby with a pass issued by the hotel. We only booked 'room only' as we didn't know what to expect but decided to take breakfast the following morning on seeing the place. It didn't disappoint, the full works including fresh fruit and pastries. Will definitely stay here again.

I am surprised by the last reviewer as I am currently staying on the 4th floor and have a good size room with large bathroom and average size windows looking out across the port. I really cannot fault it. It is an old building so yes there are sloping floors & as it is on the top floor the ceilings are quite low especially in the bathroom but the refurb has been done well, no it is not a luxury 5 star but it is not trying to be. The room has good lighting, is warm and the bed is very comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is excellent although there are no handles or rubber mats so care is needed getting in & out of the bath. Staff are friendly and efficient. Parking is a little confusing as it says on the website "parking on site" but it is not so do phone for instructions before going. The Room Service menu has a great variety & is very reasonably priced, I had a great meal. Use the Best Western website to book, I paid £62 room only - as a Best Western regular business traveller I can honestly say that this is one of the best I have stayed in - I will be back.

Room Tip: I have only stayed in one room and it was lovely but in a hotel such as this I am sure there is a bi...
