“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

My wife and I came here to check out this area of Great Britain, Dover castle, the World War II tunnels, and the White Cliffs. The hotel is very popular, there were many people there during the weekend we visited. It is located right across the street from the ocean. Our room had a great ocean view. For this being an older hotel it is very well maintained, service was excellent, the restaurant had good food, too. The lounge/tea room was an excellent place just to hang out, relax, etc. While I was taking a ride on the Dover Sea Safari, my wife had a massage and said it was one of the best she's had in a while. We will definitely come back here again.

Room Tip: Getting an ocean view room is worth the small extra cost.

We treated ourselves to a weekend in Kent. We didn't think much of Dover, but the best western Dover was excellent. The meal in the restaurant on the first evening was outstanding, it was the best steak we had eaten in months, excellent........
The room was tastefully decorated, the view of the sea front/port was outstanding,
One thing i would mention though, we didn't go for bed and breakfast (don't know why as we normally do) the breakfast was £12.99 each, all be it eat as much as you want buffet, but we went for a breakfast in the coffee shop, that was a lot cheaper but came from the same buffet next door...
room was quite expensive for the two days,but worth every penny......

Room Tip: pick a sea view room. be mind full of the fact that he cross channel ferries start as early as 4.00A...

Had dinner here while staying at Premier inn up the road using our Tastecard.Very noticeable that we were very low on the pecking order having to wait a long time to get any service.My food was very good but my wifes prawn linguine with a swirl of cream was absolutely swimming in half an inch of it so was inedible.I did complain and got a cappuccino f.o.c.great!All food half price so very cheap.Pity about the one course which spoilt the evening.

A great way to end my journey through england and wales. Had to stop in dover before my sailing next morning. I was happy to find this hotel on the seafront. Very good value for money. Wanted my last night to be nice and comfortable and I was not disappointed, quite the contrary. Asked for a single room and got a lovely one with a double bed, bathroom with bathtub and seaview. Staff extremely nice and helpful. This hotel reminds me a bit of the Grand Hotels of days long gone. If I ever need to stay overnight in Dover again, I'll look no further.

Booked for night to catch early ferry. Ideal location with parking nearby in Retail outlet car park. First room smelt of smoke, but were move to another that was fine. Dinner standard, but friendly service.

Me and my husband stayed here for a 2 night break and it was really relaxing. The breakfast was great. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My only problem there were works being carried out across the road from our hotel room which caused a lot of noise from time to time but otherwise it was a great break.

Staff very helpful and pleasant,but there was no organisation in the dining room.Dinner 7pm,but with only one type of meal coming out at a time,very slow.Staff had no idea where the food was meant for, hence kept being asked by different staff if we wanted the dish,even though a menu was filled in at breakfast.The food, when it arrived, was very good, and good choice of menu.The second night there was a birthday party,and all other guests,including our party, were moved out of dining room to another room with long tables, making it difficult for the less able guests to get in and out.The staff had further to walk from the kitchen with the food,so again had a long wait.On last night it was 8.30pm before the tea and coffee finally arrived.
The room wasnt very clean, with tea having been dripped on skirting boards by previous guests and not cleaned off,also dust.Good view of harbour from room.I have stayed at Best Western Hotels before and I must say I was disappointed with this one.The situation was very good,being just across the road from the harbour,and Marina at the back.
