“Excellent thay at a cozy inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

We stayed at Blerioit's for three nights as part of our month long European tour in July. We had just landed in the UK from an overnight trans-atlantic flight and were extremely tired and arriving at Brleriots well before check inn time was no problem at all. Martin, the congenial host, escorted us to a lovely little sitting room while he quickly had our room made ready for us. The room was large enough with a comfortable bed and good linens. Coffee and Tea service in the room was replenished each day and the breakfast that was served each morning was absolutely excellent.

The mark of a good host is not necessarily determined by the absence of problems but the way in which the problem is dealt with. We did have a small maintenance issue in our room while we were there but Martin was very quick to have it rectified and, as a result, it caused almost no inconvenience.

Location was great only a few minutes by cab from Dover Priory in a quiet little residential area. We were even able to walk to Dover Castle through a lovely little park. It is a healthy walk but definitely doable if you have no mobility issues. The walk to and from town was no problem either and Dover has a lovely little pedestrian strip that was fun for shopping and eating.

I highly recommend Bleriot's and hope one day to go back.

Thanks for a great start to our trip Martin, we hope to see you again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 and had lovely view of Dover Castle.

We had used Bleriot's a couple of years ago and found the whole experience very positive and good value so when we needed to stop over again in July we naturally went back. We were pleased that the room was comfortable and the on-suite, whilst a little cramped, was clean and met our needs. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was first class. A great place to stay in Dover.

Stopped one night before sailing to France.
A great place to stay, only five minute drive to the port.
The owner is very pleasant and helpful.
Good facilities in the room which was also very clean and comfortable.
We were served a good quality english braekfast to send us on our way.

Would use this again as an overnight stay.

It's a while since I stayed here with my wife, and my son's family but I still feel moved to write about how superb Bleriot's Guest House really is. At the end of June we were en route to France by car and needed an overnighter in Dover. We chose Bleriot's for it's location and were not disappointed. Literally minutes from the car ferry it proved to be well worth it. Martin was very kind in returning from his dog walk to allow us access earlier than normally allowed. We were shown to our two rooms and my wife and I chose a room on second floor (room 7 I recall) with a great view to Dover Castle. Very clean, very well maintained but no wi-fi here which was a slight disappointment as I had work to complete - I was able to do this in the residents lounge. My son stayed in room 4 which was also spick and span. Martin was very welcoming and took time to talk to us. We had a very peaceful night and woke to enjoy one of the best English breakfasts I have ever eaten, fresh and cooked to order. I will stay here again if I need a room in Dover for sure. Highly recommended.

We have stayed in this B & B several times, but unfortunately don't get the breakfast as we usually have a boat to catch. Good rooms, good friendly service, and convenient for the boat. I am intrigued by who built this and the neighbouring house, as this one is called Belper and the neighbouring one Ripley. Clearly a builder from around where I live was homesick.

This B&B is perfect at all levels!!!! It is highly commendable!!!!
We've got an extremely nice welcome, and enjoyed a copious breakfast.
The house, which is globally very pleasant, has a complete equipment and is in addition very quiet and located in a very quite area, less than 5 minutes drive from the harbor.

We travelled to Dover on a spur of the moment thing and arrived in the evening and whilst Googling for somewhere to stay Bleriot's stood out. We phoned and luckily Martin had a cancellation. We arrived to a very welcoming, smiling gentleman who showed us the available double room with en-suite. Upon entering the Guest House the reception area had plenty of information leaflets for all over the local area and Martins local knowledge was vast and he willingly passed on where was good to eat, as well as the areas around Dover that were good for living (this was the point of the trip) The house oozes character, cleanliness is superb. The rooms are bright and functional, having a Tv, radio alarm clock and a kettle (with a good selection of tea,coffee,biscuits etc). as well as a hair drier. Plus there was soaps etc. in the en-suite. The towels were super white and smelled as fresh as spring. We slept well in a comfortable bed (although some road noise was heard). There was plenty of hot water for a good shower. Breakfast and what a breakfast selection, superb is best way to describe the full English. Overall great value, comfortable, homely and welcoming. Thanks Martin, we highly recommend to all and will be back.
