“Good,clean accommodation”
Reviewed 10 June 2012 via mobile

Situated close to sea front. Robert the owner greets you with a smile and is helpful with all sorts of local information. The large pink room was situated at the rear and was quiet. The lounge is situated on the same first floor and has lovely views out to sea,as does the breakfast room on the ground floor. Small tele in bedroom,difficult to view when in bed,no hair dryer for the ladies. Tea and coffee making in room. The bath room is close by and you can have a lovely hot soak. Small car park at front of property. Free Wi Fi. Very handy for three minute drive to ferry port. Walking distance to town,restaurants,pubs. Good overnight stay.

Stayed June 2012, travelled as a couple

This was the start of a long planned cruise trip to Norway. The Loddington House was a real find for a place to spend a couple of days. Located under the white cliffs and overlooking the Harbor the views were grand. It is also located in short walking distance from the town center and the Dover Castle. Both of these are worth spending time with. Robert could not have been more helpful. From dinner recommendations to taxi arrangements he satisfied our needs fully. Breakfast at the Loddington matches its other assets. For a continental or a full English breakfast it fills the need in the old style. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: The Gold Room has great views.

A lovely old guest house in great condition with a great host!

We stayed in the "cream room". It was very comfortable, but it was a bit of a climb up. The bathroom was across the hall, but it was our own. Double windows kept the traffic noise out, able to open to enjoy the night air. It was only busy traffic wise in the afternoon for some reason.

Everything was very clean (even the kitchen which wasn't a visitor location but caught a peek of).
Robert was an excellent guest and took very good care of us.

I would very much recommend. Just take a lower room if climbing stairs is an issue.

Room Tip: Front has great view of harbor. Parking is in front, but normal walk in/out in rear.

The hotel was excellent value. We stayed for one night and were well looked after. We thought Dover is under rated, has beautiful cliff walks, castle is amazing and fantastic views of the sea. Would definitely go back for a longer stay.

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend Loddington House to anyone staying in Dover. It is a cute B&B with a beautiful little rose garden, somewhat retro decor and is very accessible, a short 15m walk from the town centre.

Probably a quirk of the architecture, but our room (Cream Room on the top floor) was much warmer than the rest of the house. Surely cosy in winter, but during the hottest October weekend on record the window had to stay open the whole time! Being effectively in the roof, the ceilings were also lower than in the rest of the house.

However, the rooms and toilets were spotless and the bed was comfortable. The reception was friendly and welcoming. We were impressed by the lounge and breakfast was very good. Hard to fault really!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are slightly noisier due to traffic, but are sunny all day and have good views...

We stayed for one night before our cruise in early August, 2011.We received a very warm welcome by host, Robert, who helped take our heavy luggage up the stairs. He was very helpful with local restaurant recommendations and sights to see. We were in a nice room at the front and despite the typical English weather, the view was great. Breakfast the next morning was excellent. We would highly recommend this B&B. It is good value and a very friendly reception. Liz and Alan from Scottsdale

We stayed here two days prior to a cruise. As noted by previous reviewers, Robert, the owner makes this place. He's your reservationist, greeter, porter, concierge and waiter, and you're his most important guest. The hotel is a nicely maintained 1800's row house right on the Channel waterfront with Dover Castle directly behind. The public areas retain their historic features, with a pretty dining room on the ground floor and a comfortable lounge on the 1st floor overlooking the sea. The bedrooms are plain, but impeccably clean as is the rest of the house. We enjoyed walking along the sea wall above the pebble beach, which connects to the downtown pedestrian area, restaurants and shops. You'll get your aerobic exercise walking up to Dover Castle for some nice views and history, and its only a short walk to the ferry terminal and a short cab ride to the cruise terminal. We'd go again in a minute...a great value!

Room Tip: Rooms in front overlook the sea and 4 lane road that services ferry port. Quieter in back, but view...
