    Helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Clean rooms.

    Stairs to steep for mature people . and for luggage.

    The staff was totally unfriendly, and had no sense at all of being nice, or polite.

    Room was renovated!

    Very unfriendly staff. Very rude. Said we had to pay 3% extra for using visacard although on the website was nothing about that. We even were asked to leave if we didn't like it! Room was on streetside and traffic was too loud inside. Blinds let too much light through. Bed was like a selfmade box that was like a soundbox to every sound in- and outside. Very small but rest okay. Breakfast from 7 to 8. Come on! Also they were very hasty. Took away things while still eating and having not finished. If you didn't hold on it was gone if you only looked outside at 7h30. Other guests were complaining on same as all above. Think staff is Polish or Slowaks!?

    convenient for train station and cruise port.

    we thought we could use the cafe for meals but it was only available for breakfast.Difficult access to rooms

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Owner was very kind. Very clean rooms.

    Very high and steep stairs. Extremely difficult to take up your luggage. Second floor and we had two large suitcases. We had a code to get into the hotel but the door kepy getting stuck and we had to wait for somebody to come out to open the door, Internet signal weas very weak and we were always getting cut off or we had to use our computer in the corridor.

    Staircase very narrow difficult for elderly or infirm people.

    good location,close to station,restaurant,shop etc. Room was small but very comfortable,well appointed,and clean.The breakfast in cafe Epress was excellent!

    narrow stairs & no lifts

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Despite the initial impression we found the place spotlessly clean and everything worked. Very good breakfast.

    Rooms very small and stairs very cramped. As this is the first impression you get it isn't favorable, however everythong does get better. There seemed to be some teething troubles with the security ystem, as the doors didnt always open.

  • Single

    There was a useful kitchen and all rooms had tv. It is very convenient for Dover Priory railway station.

    My room was very noisy. It was on a busy main road, and fire-doors were banging just outside my door.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The rooms were not big, but modern and very tidy. The breakfast was very good. Although the hostel does not have own parking facilities it gave us good information about possibility of free parking in the neighbourhood. Very good price-quality balance.

    The owner is very nice, but can appear a bit too direct to some of the guests ( very quick explanation, imposing the quick payment).

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    It has obviously had a complete refit. Clean, modern internal fittings, good and extensive facilities and all safety requirements appeared to be in place. Excellent breakfast.

    Parking was not good. The external appearance gave a misleading impression - it is far better inside that a passer by would ever think from its external appearance.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    It left us with many stories about his horrendous place, mostly Fawlty Towers type stories.

    Windows don't open past a crack, hot room. Rooms face the busy street and a gas station with all night lighting. Room is pitifully small and the bathroom is tiny but does work. Breakfast is so so. And the son, who was the man in charge, is as rude as any human could be. \How can you say what you didn't like and not have it be a complaint?

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The room provided was of good standard and the staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was of good quality.

    The hotel is located on a busy road with noise throughout the night.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    the family room, with ensuite , was ideal for our overnight stay, en route to France.the breakfast was the best i have ever had, and i have stayed in 5 star hotels.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The room was really clean and the breakfast was nice. The bed was comfortable.

    Could hear the noise from the street and the street light was lighting the room (would be better to change the stores for proper curtains).
