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.
