“Friendly and accommodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

Gary was a fantastic host. He was very accommodating by letting us check in early and checking out later.

It was a great location and a life saver for our weekend away to Canterbury as no accommodation was available in the city. The train station was only a 10mins walk away which took us directly into Canterbury.

Breakfast was lovely, and the room was very spacious and clean. I could've quite happily stayed there longer than 1 night, and would not hesitate staying again.

Only 2 criticisms, which are that it wasn't well signed from the roadside so difficult to spot and no toiletries (shower gel etc) were provided in the bathroom.

Gary is a great host with a very good sense of humour, the rooms are immaculate and to a very high standard, as is the rest of the house. breakfast is very good and often comes with some of Garys home made Jams or Banana cake.
This is an excellent place to stay to explore Dover or as we did, catch the ferry to France, which is within under 10 minutes away. You will not regret staying at Crabble Hill House, We will definately be back . Thank you Dave and Zoe

The venue is handily placed just off the A2 on the edge of Dover, and has great views over the town of River.

But the first problem was getting into it and booking in as first there was no sign outside and deciding which house it was was tricky; and then there was no answer at the door. We ended up having to call the owner and he then came to the door.

First night and breakfast was fine; but the second and third morning, no staff arrived and no breakfast was available and so I left.

The room had no curtains either, making sleep very difficult indeed.

All in all, a very unsatisfactory place to stay and unlikly to be in business very long unless it shapes up.

Dear Traveler.
This review is old and from a time when this house was run by another owner. The house was closed for some time after this and I opened again in July 2010. As you can see from my other reviews and my own website these comments bear no relation to the way I run my business today.

Thank You
