Marine Parade House F4 Next to Dover Port, White Cliffs, Beach, Castle, hotel in Dover

Housed in a historic building, the recently renovated Marine Parade House F4 Next to Dover Port, White Cliffs, Beach, Castle provides accommodation with a terrace and free WiFi.

We had the most wonderful stay - wish it could have been longer! Nothing was overlooked - even treats in a jar, fresh eggs on the side, crisps and cookies waiting in a basket. And the view (which was definitely helped by unusual amazing weather!) could have been in the Mediterranean

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.

    The walk along the cliffs was amazing. The trail to the sea along the edge of the cliff was only s little challenging for my arthritis but the view was worth it. Seeing a Spitfire fly overhead was an added bonus!

    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.

    Bev and Michael were very welcoming hosts! We really appreciated all of the food recommendations and top tips on the local attractions. The breakfast was absultely amazing and they accommodated so kindly for our varying dietary needs. The location was great. Walkable distance from town center, train stations, Dover castle, and White Cliffs of Dover for my partner and eye! The room was so cute and well put together! If we ever find ourselves in Dover again, I would love to stay with Bev adn Michael!

    Pandora helped us when we changed our dates when booking via e mail. When our luggage was left in Houston and they said they would deliver Pandora, our host made sure she was available so we could get out and see Dover. Plan on staying here again. Breakfast was delicious with little touches, our Grandson said it was the best hot chocolate and his favourite place. Loved the pool and the Summer house. Such a welcoming host. Thank you Pandora for making us feel so welcome.

    Hotel is across the street from the train station. Took the train from London St Pancreas station. After checking in, we walked into small Dover town for dinner and found a grocery store to buy wine for the cruise. Next morning we walked to cruise, port a mile in 30 minutes, but we have light luggage. Always recommend you book a hotel the night before you cruise within walking distance of port.

    On the water front. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We asked how old the property is and the staff person said they did not know, but a bit later a different staff person delivered a packet of photo copied articles from the local newspapers going back many years. The hotel is very old, but nicely renovated and comfortable. The front desk, bar and restaurant staff were all wonderful!

    Very nice place with a great view over Dover. Very quiet thanks to its situation far from the centre and the main road. Very nice welcoming by Margaret and her husband who kindly proposed me to carry my suitcase into my room as there are steep stairs to get there. Lovely breakfast. Very cosy, clean and quiet room and entrance locked with security code. Nice little private car park below the hotel.

    Nice little Guesthouse in Dover England. The owners and their family are super nice and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was exceptional. They even arranged for a town car to get us to our Cruise Ship. The traditional British Breakfast was outstanding and even though it was extra it was well worth it and not that expensive.

    The generous hospitality of Michael and Andrullia was the highlight of our stay. Get Michael to bring out his guitar and regale you with his talent. We were impressed. The delicious breakfast dished out kept us going through the climb to the 'White cliffs' and onward to the Dover castle.Truly amazing! Overall a '10'.Nothing less.

    A nice basic hotel just outside Dover, it is a perfect stop over when getting an early ferry. The staff were a bit thin on the ground so some waiting occurred but they were friendly and happy to help. The food on offer at the Bella Italia restaurant is delicious and this is based inside the resturant itself.

    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.
