Booked this hotel online at the Calais ferry terminal, mostly by reviews and the price seemed reasonable. We took the last ferry of the day and arrived in Dover at nearly 1 am. To say the least the day was a long one. When we arrived, the was no one at the front counter, there were dirty dishes in the lobby on a side table, not really a welcoming situation. When the gentlemen finally showed up, he apologized for not seeing us because he was busy "stuffing his face" in the back room. We were given room 211 facing the back road. To say the least...I've had better!
The room was the size of a closet. There was a horrible smell in our room, like a toilet was backed up, the showerhead kept falling down, so I had to keep adjusting it to actually have any water spray on me. There were more minuses than pluses, but was way beyond tired to actually go downstairs and complain. The room was cramped, they supplied a floor fan, which may have been a saving grace since it was a stifling 28 degrees. The beds were sufficient, the decor was typical franchise art work, there were bare necessities for the bathroom but that was pretty much it. Words of wisdom, try to get a marina view room, at least you may get an ocean breeze on a hot day.
