“A lovely stay!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at Dover House B and B, and it was wonderful to meet Jane. She more typically hosts couples, but made every effort to accommodate the two of us and our 12-year-old son in The Blue Room. She was honest enough to warn that the pull-out bed might not be luxurious, but our son found it was comfortable enough and he got a good night's sleep. Though a tad firm for our taste, our bed was also comfortable, and the room was very clean. The a/c was also very appreciated during a southern Ontario heat wave! Jane even made an effort to accommodate our vegetarian diet. The breakfast was fantastic, starting with five or six kinds of delicious, fresh fruit with yogurt and granola, followed by a veggie omelette/frittata, a cinnamon-raisin bread pudding, coffee and juice. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. I also liked the way that Jane sat everyone at the same table for breakfast. It was fun meeting everyone, and the conversation was great. Jane's own story was very interesting, too, including some of the tales she collected during a 13-year stay in Australia. Dover House is everything a B and B should be -- including great value for the money!

Room Tip: Choosing The Master Guestroom will save you the minor inconvenience of sharing a bathroom.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Dover House. From the moment I contacted Jane via email she was helpful and friendly. She welcomed us into her home as if we were longtime friends or family. Her home is beautiful and tastefully decorated and our room was great. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious with coffee and fresh fruit available early for those who are up and around. We had a great visit with Jane over our breakfast and she was very helpful providing us with maps and other local information. We will definitely be returning!!

Dover House was an excellent experience. The property was beautiful and very peaceful. Jane was awesome and a very gracious host. Very helpful on where to go and great places to eat. We had the added pleasure of her mom joining us for breakfast Sat. morning. The house was extremely well decorated with pictures and wall hangings. We stayed in the blue room which was very spacious and comfortable. We will definitely be going back and would recommend Dover House to all our friends.

Room Tip: Master Bed Room has a Bay window with a great view and the Blue Room is very spacious.

The Dover House B&B is a wonderful oasis in picturesque Port Dover, a town on Lake Erie. We booked the suite on the main floor with the private bath. It was a very comfortable room (great bedding!) with a lovely view of the gardens at the B&B. Our breakfasts both days were superb (thanks Jane!) and we enjoyed meeting interesting guests each day. We'd go back anytime we need to stay anywhere in the area.

Jane was very prompt and efficient with responding vis emails, I contacted three other B & B's and she was the only one whom responded - so she got my business. She is very friendly and accommodating, she went the extra mile in reserving me a table at the local Bistro ( as during theater season reservations are reccommended). Stayed ground floor double, the set-up is a little unusual, as private bathroom is not ensuite, and you are close to the kitchen/dining room. The bed was very comfortable & sheets were wonderful. The grounds were beautiful and location was very quiet.

We've been to Port Dover before, we didn't stay over so wanted to explore a little more. We found the Dover House B&B on booking.com and thought the prices were very reasonable.

We booked, Jane contacted us by email to confirm arrangements which was a nice touch. We were heading to the beach for the day and were able to park up right outside the B&B.

We checked in around 4.30 or so: Jane invited us to the patio for cocktails (we had our own wine). We were joined by several of Jane's friends - it was a lovely couple of hours. Jane has done a fabulous job of making the place feel cosy yet it's spotless and pristine. The gardens are tranquil and the patio is great.

We stayed in the Blue room - very comfy bed; pity it was so hot (not really) there's a fireplace in there we simply did not need but would be welcome in the cooler shoulder seasons.

And breakfast... wow. Muesli, fruit, Jane's home baked fruity loaf and a frittata made with cheese - and great coffee. What's not to like!

Room Tip: for couples choose the Blue room (only three rooms in the B&B this one is the best for couples)

If you are looking for a Bed and Breakfast in Port Dover the Dover House B7B is the one to go to. Jane the host is a warm and wonderful person. She is a very welcoming host who makes you feel like part of the family! The home is comfortable and clean...newly renovated. Our beds were very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Jane's location is great an easy walk to down town for the local Port Dover perch dinner. Highly recommend you check this B&B out.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Master bedroom on the main floor was a great room
