            Location on beach. Great view of harbor and channel

            Room was small and had too much furniture in it. It was not possible to walk around the room easily.

            Location, breakfast, near to the Dover harbour, stilish

            Tiny room, wc extremely tiny

            The location was really good.

            I had a problem when being checked-in. The check-in time was 2pm but we were delayed til 5pm. The front desk staff wasn't at all helpful. We had been told to wait for 5 minutes for many times. We ended up trapped in the reception area for more than an hour (that was after we came back from a walk after our first attempt to checkin). It was simply bad staff management and some communication issues.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Great location, right on the beach. Requested and got an ocean view room. Restaurant facilities excellent. Walking distance to downtown. Staff accommodated us for a late breakfast.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Location was very good and suited our requirements for the weekend. Restaurant, although rather expensive, served very good quality meals. Easy car parking.

            Plumbing on third floor was poor. Very slow flow for hot water, particularly for the bath. Reception staff very helpful, but one or two of the male restaurant staff could be a bit more customer orientated - tended to get flustered if a number of guests arrived at the same time. Could do with a bigger lift. To the question below, in terms of location, we would say yes. We understand that the plumbing problem is being addressed. Th hotel has a lot going for it and we are sure it can be improved.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Friendly staff and well decorated. Breakfast with a sea view was very enjoyable. Good location for beach and castle.

            The lift and room where small which made staying with a 2 year old a bit of a squeeze. The shower needed a bit more power. These comments are however very minor and did not effect the enjoyment of our stay.

          • Single
            8.0

            Close to the ferry terminal located at the water front. Great view! Excelent food. The room was a bit too warm.

            Too bad that they messed up the invoice. There were itmes on my invoice that I didn't have. Worthwhile checking the invoice it saved me over 70 GBP

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Staff was great and went out of their way to make my stay comfortable when we encountered a problem with the bathroom plumbing. Great location - would return

            No airconditioning :( it gets quite hot on the fourth flour and the windows cant be opened.

          • Older travelers

            Good waterfront location close to cruise terminal. Lovely outlook onto seafront. Easy access to city centre and bus service to Dover castle.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Well situated superb views great for ferry

            Dover is the pits with little or no redeeming qualitieshotel is situated remotely from dover town so a very big plus dover must give a very poor impression on what britain is like looks like no investment in town for 50 years

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Great location for an overnight before an early start for the ferry to France.

            The room was very comfortable. It has just been decorated, so the smell of paint was still in the air.

          • Couple
            4.2

            The food in the restaurant was absolutely dreadful. I couldn't even eat half of my meal. It was disgusting. I ordered the spaghetti marinara and thinking about it now makes me want to vomit it was that bad. The tv in our room didn't work properly either, you couldn't change channels or adjust the volume on the tv and the remote barely worked unless you were standing in a precise position in the room and 30cm away from the tv. Also, as it was our five year anniversary we had requested a seafront room and a room off the lower floors and we were placed in a back room on the first floor with an outlook or scaffolding and the rubbish bins. Was extremely disappointed with the entire experience.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Hotel location excellent. Balcony and sea view. Furnishing in room and public areas very tasteful. Staff dealt with booking issue without any fuss and altered our booking to include breakfast. Breakfast servery very good.

            The hotel staff was all very polite and helpful! The room was very nice! The restaurant in the hotel does great food and on the eveninf we were there, there was a pianist there aswell! We had a 10 out of 10 experience there! VEry nice if You just want to get away from city life and just relax with Your loved one!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            We stayed only one night but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was extremely comfortable and the evening meal was delicious. Breakfast was nice but would have preferred a hot buffet rather than a limited set English breakfast

            We found the room to be rather cold due to the change in weather and no heating, otherwise, we liked everything about the hotel
