An Ancient Port of Call

Dover is famous for the white cliffs which would have been a striking sight to the Romans as they advanced on England. They decided to construct a port at this strategic spot and it has held an important role ever since. Ferries to Calais and Dunkirk cross the English Channel several times daily and some brave souls even manage to swim across.

A Roman lighthouse still stands atop a hill overlooking the port, but is easily missed as it was incorporated into Saxon St Mary de Castro Church as the bellower. It is found within the grounds of 13th-century Dover Castle, one of England’s largest castles, whose multi-level ramparts sit above tunnels where the World War II Dunkirk evacuation was planned.

Another Roman monument is the Painted House whose remains include some of the best-preserved Roman murals north of Italy. Even older is the Bronze Age boat displayed in Dover Museum.

The Dover Transport Museum showcases vintage vehicles, and the Blériot Memorial marks the spot where the first airplane to fly across the Channel first touched English soil. A path runs along the top of the nearby cliffs, while at their feet is a shingle beach.

The Dover accommodation on Booking.com includes luxury hotels with pools, cheap inns and B&Bs near the train station.

    Dover is a must see and can be placed on your bucket list.

    Dover is a must see and can be placed on your bucket list. The walk along the cliffs is great and the Dover castle is well maintained and very interesting. Parking in Dover is as per all UK towns a problem and you need to plan accordingly or you can use the local bus services.

    We spent a day and a half in Dover and came specifically to see the historical Fan Bay Shafts (National Trust) and Dover Castle (English Heritage). We found Fan Bay Shafts interesting and very 'genuine' history. Note that it is 45 minutes underground in damp, but not cold, tunnels, wearing a hard hat and head torch. Dover Castle warrants a whole day or more! Lots to see. We had time to see Deal Castle too. Good as a contrast, as it is a Tudor fortification. They have tried hard with their pretty good first floor exhibition, but the basement is an underused and under-explained resource which could be much more imaginatively tackled.

    Dover needs significant regeneration: the town is tired and not appealing. I have known Dover since 1965 and to be honest it is probably now at its worst, but I can see some small signs of improvement: however everything being demolished is becoming a car park!! Dover needs to look like Folkestone or Deal: more independent and unique shops to attract people. Not the standard chains stores and "cheap shops", which of course have their place but different shops attract curiosity. The castle remains the main attraction, as does western heights and Dover Patrol memorial. Kirsney Abbey and Russell Gardens provide a tranquil side. the ride through Alkham Valley, always puts a smile on my face.

    Dover is a very busy port town but also a town full of interesting history. We loved walking out along the pier, watching the ferries come in & go out, we enjoyed visiting Dover Castle very much, it is well worth putting a day aside to visit the castle and we found the town centre to contain everything we needed for our visit; minimart, chemist, shoe shop, pubs, restaurants & coffee shops. It’s small enough to walk everywhere & plenty to do. There’s a great walk along the famous white cliffs which we ran out of time to do but we’d like to come back one day & see more of this great town. In all, Dover is a bit rough around the edges but a very interesting town to visit, especially if you like boats, the seaside & history.

    Plenty to do in Dover and with travel issues (traffic and train strikes) well worth reducing the stress and planning a day in Dover. Premier Inn offered (online reservation) for Bag stashers. Local museum has amazing Bronze age boat! Dover castle has so many different historic periods covered - Roman lighthouse, Plantagenet castle and World war II hospital / headquarters - allow plenty of time.

    Dover is really undergoing a regeneration process, the beach are is very popular and the marina is just lovely. The town itself is very run down indeed and we avoided it this time. We did spend a lot of time walking on the beach and enjoying the lovely atmosphere.

    Our room had bed, living area, kitchenette with frig, microwave, dishes etc. We stayed 3 nights so we could eat our leftover meals! We could make tea/coffee. Breakfast was amazingly good, with a nice view from the dining room. Greatly located above city center. Hosts were so nice & helpful. We rented a car to go to Canterbury etc.and there was parking there. We loved everything about it, location great for city center.Dover Museum is free and worth the visit. Castle closed except for weekends in winter.

    Fabulously well-located hotel, right near to the White Cliffs of Dover (a pretty easy walk, plus climb!) along the front. From our room on the first floor they say we could have seen France, were the weather a little brighter. Suffice to say we enjoyed our time sitting out front at the bar and took dinner at Marco Pierre White's restaurant both evenings. Panoramic restaurant windows allowed great views out to sea and, at breakfast, was a real sun-trap.

    George, his lovely wife and Jan have been very warm, welcoming and helpful. We feel right at home here. They were kind to let us deposit our luggage before check in and after we have checked out. That made our moving around in Dover so much more easier They upgraded us to a triple room, it is very clean. It has nice hot shower, firm bed, beverage and biscuits were provided. We will stay here again if we visit Dover again :)

    Perfect location, quiet and clean hotel. Easy to park. John, the Concierge, is who really makes the difference among other hotels. He was so helpful and gave us the best advices to visit Dover. There were many places to visit, some of them we missed because we were just one day in Dover, so we'll come back at some point and for sure we'll choose again St Martins Guest House.

    The property was perfect location for our stop off at Dover, literally 10 minutes down the road to the port. Apartment was clean and tidy, has everything you need for a stay. Karen was lovely and accommodating, the weather wasn’t on our side but Karen went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience

    Usually, in a hotel review, you'd talk about things such as room size, cleanliness, etc. And don't get me wrong - all of these things were good too. But what really differentiates this hotel from others was John, the Concierge. He was incredibly helpful and very fun to talk to. Would gladly stay there again!

    We really enjoyed staying in Hubert house, even for just couple of days. The room we stayed was wonderful and the hotel itself has the great location: 10min to castle and 5 min to the center and to the Dover beach. Highly recommend to solo travellers and couples. The staff was so kind and welcoming.

    Onsite parking with great location. The full breakfast was delicious! (but... see what we did not like) The property is at the base of the hill upon which Dover Castle sits. It is close enough to walk, but VERY steep, I would recommend using your car, especially as parking at the hotel is free.

    Room was simple but comfortable. We arrived late because of traffic issues so we didn't get to see much of the town around the hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Parking was nice since it was just in front of the hotel. Very close to Dover castle which we ended up visiting.

    Classic English "home"! Very nice room, our room had its own bathroom, no AC, but while we were here, the windows did just fine 😀. Within walking distance of the train station and town. Got taxis from town to go to Dover Castle. The hostess was nice and very helpful.

    Our overall experience of Dover was itself brilliant. Full of history, with a lovely sea front, nice bars pubs, and decent, friendly people. I should like to come back one day, though if I do I will obviously be steering well clear of Dover Town Rooms!

    The property is in great location for Dover ferry port and is a much better price than any other hotel/hostel in the area. As we were only staying for about 12 hours we weren’t prepared to pay the ridiculous costs of some of the other places.
