I stayed here both pre and post cruise. Lovely place. Nice room; excellant breakfast, but the best part are the hosts Pat and Michael. They were incredibly nice, and accomodating. Location is also excellant. Within walking distance of the downtown pedestrian area and great restaurants. Also within five minutes of the port by cab.

We also stayed August 26 prior to Cruise. This is one of the nicest B&B's we have stayed either Europe or US. Pat and Michael were great hosts and the breakfast was wonderful. There is a patio our back where you can spend time just decompressing from the day. After our cruise we spent 3 days exploring Dover with our...

Great place to stay in Dover with very reasonable rates. Excellent town location - not far from the ferry terminal and at the foot of the hill where Dover Castle is.

Pat and Michael run a decorous, comfortable and well appointed guest house. In contrast to the traffic maelstrom besieging the port during the weekend we visted, their guest house was an oasis of calm and courtesy. Thank you
