I've stayed at the guest house several times and enjoyed it each time. My most recent stay was in late May 2016. The host makes you feel like you're at "your home away from home." The room is quiet and comfortable. The location is great--close to the ferry port and close to restaurants and the city centre. Guests have a...

We showed up late after a long day of travel, wet and bedraggled. We were greeted warmly and shown to our very nice rooms, asked if we needed anything and when we said food, (preferably fish and chips) we were given several ideas one or two minutes away by walking. John made a phone call to see if his favorite...

Stayed here over the May bank holiday weekend, after I had wrongly booked another hotel, and managed to find one room available here. Within 5 mins of booking via a 3rd party site, we had confirmation back which was pleasing. Arrived Saturday early evening at 18:30 to book in, and was greeted and shown our room. Yes, it may not...

What can I say but I would definitely recommend this guest house! Margaret was the perfect host to begin with.

If you are traveling without a car, this a wonderful spot to be. The White Cliffs, Dover castle, and the rest of town were all a short walk from here. The room was everything we needed; clean, comfortable, great wifi, a wonderful breakfast enjoyed in-room and a private garden entrance. We felt very welcomed by Margaret.
