“Terrible neighborhood”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Avoid this place. The area is dirty and unsafe -- there is trash piled up all down the street. Though the house itself isn't that bad -- except for the food, which was pretty awful -- it is in the worst part of Dover (that's not to say that there are many nice places that are affordable in Dover). I highly recommend that you skip Dover altogether. Stay in Canterbury as a base for exploring Kent. If you want to take the ferry over to Calais, you can easily take the train to Dover; the station is not that far from the docks. But whatever you do, don't stay at Longfield or at any B&B in this area.

I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Dover. It is a short walk from the train station and about 15 minutes away from the bus station. As I arrived the owner Maria greeted me and explained me about the area, where to go and how to reach the cruise terminal ( as I was visiting the next day). The room was really nice and clean, cozy, it had a basin in the room and the shower were just outside, always very clean. The breakfast was also nice, simple. I was able to leave my backpack most of the day when I left as my bus was not until the late afternoon. I would certainly recommend coming back.

We stayed at Longfield Guest House for four nights while visiting family in Dover. We were given a warm welcome on our arrival. Our room was comfortable and cleaned daily, nothing was to much trouble for them. Highly recommended will be staying again.

Needed a room for the night - originally for 5 which they were happy to accommodate despite not actually having a room for 5 - but which ended as only 3 of us - and we were offered a reduction accordingly without having to ask! Room was spacious enough in spite of having three beds in it - beds were comfy with lovely and crisp sheets - the bathroom spotless and adequate in size - and breakfast was filling and delicious. Will definitely be back!

Three adults shared a family room although a little cramped it was adequate, clean and tidy, ensuite was ok. Breakfast is extra but value for money.

We stayed at Longfield while travelling around England. We booked after viewing on a website and reading reviews. If you are after 5 star then you won't get it but for the price we paid it was more than sufficient. The breakfast was great and the bed comfortable. We stayed in the room which was a triple at the back of the building so didn't hear any of the passing night traffic.The decor in the rooms is a little dated and the bathroom seemed a little old but like I previously said we didn't expect 5 star for the price we paid. If you are after a comfortable nights sleep at a great price with a host that was nice then this is a great place to stay. Overall a nice experience to add to our fantastic trip to England.

Reviewed 12 March 2012

we arrived at this bed and breakfast with great expectations,what a let down,firstly, although the car park was empty we were told to move the car as it was parked not quite right ! then we went to see our room which was dreadfully decorated,dirty (i left it cleaner than i found it), the bed was so hard and uncomfortable we barely got any sleep,when we went down for breafast,no choice, we were just brought orange juice and toast followed by a very meagre breakfast,we were completely ignored throughout (although only guests in the dining room),no one asked if everything was ok or if we would like more toast e.g. also when we arrived maria the owner told us she went to bed at eleven so the carpark would be closed at that time. Never again,by far the worst bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at ! Carol and Steven
