The Dover

We had a lovely stay at the Dover Hotel. The Continental Breakfast was ideal to start our day. The bedroom was quite compact but spotlessly clean. Who needs a big bedroom when you spend most of the day out touring London. The room with continental breakfast only cost £119.20 for 2 nights (advance rate). I booked directly with the hotel & hence benefited from a discount for booking direct. I would recommend this hotel also for its location quite near to Victoria station & the underground train service. Wi-fi worked perfectly. Looking forward to my next stay in the Dover Hotel.

I stayed for one Night in the hotel and was absolutely fine. The room was small , about 10 to 12 square meters but very compact . Facilities include tea and coffee , tv , hairdryer and hanging space for clothes . There was a double bed and a writing desk. The bathroom was newly tiled and clean with two very large towels . Soap provided . The room was warm and plenty of bed covers . You can open the window if you wish . Breakfast downstairs was basic with fruit juice , yoghurt , toast and jam. Staff were helpful and friendly . Location is great being 5 minutes walk to victoria station . Parking maybe an issue but I was on foot. And there was very good free WiFi. Things to watch , the top rooms maybe a problem if you cannot climb too many stairs. I marked it excellent as it is clean and good value for money but note it is a two star hotel so no other facilities .

I booked into the Dover Hotel following a very late night at work. I really just wanted somewhere to get some sleep. I arrived after midnight. The gentleman on reception was friendly and helpful. I was given room 26, which was an upgrade from the room I’d paid for so had more room; and a double and single bed, which was great! The bed was comfy and the ensuite bathroom was compact but great. It looks like it’s recently been refurbished. You could hear some noise from the main road but this is central London! It didn’t disturb me and I slept really well. Towels, soap, tea, coffee etc all provided in the room. I would definitely stay here again!

We managed to get a room here at the last minute as the hotel we booked close by was disgusting. Very welcoming front desk, clean rooms with clean linen and towels. The only downside for some was the bathroom was slightly small, but it was fine for me. Continental breakfast in the morning, very friendly and helpful ladies serving toast. This was a pleasant stay and so different from the original hotel we booked. Thank you.

I stayed for a weekend with my son. The location is good, close to Victoria station and the area is actually fine. However, the rooms are small, the bed (which was clean) badly needs a new mattress as you sink in, and the bathrooms could do with some basic toiletries such as shampoo. The price (for London), I think was fine considering we were in a pretty central area. Finally, breakfast was very poor with a very limited choice and limited seating.

Not recommended. 2 star hotel but expensive. Rooms are too small. No Aircon. Staff are not helpful. Mind their own business only. Location very far from the tube. Rooms are not clean well. I don’t understand why it is under trip advisor. Soundproof not good and got smell.

What can I say this is where I met my guy what a romantic time we had. Although our room was small the staff friendly food lovely and it is right on the middle of things so easy to get to and throw. Delightful hotel .

Rooms are tiny by US standards, but very clean. A few negatives: the toilet bowl still had the cleaning product in it. The beds would benefit from mattress pads. The cereal was stale, coffee was from a machine and BBC Radio 2 blared rap/hip hop from the kitchen, but the toast was hot. For 62 pounds a night, this was a reasonable place to stay.

Location: 5/5. The Dover Hotel is located near Victoria Station, so it's really easy to reach the tube and the coach station. Also, Buckingham Palace is not too far to reach on foot. Room: 3.5/5. Our double room was very small and yet it had everything we needed. The bathroom was tiny, but it had a shower, a toilet and a sink. The room included a tea and coffee maker, a hairdryer and a small tv. There were also a small desk and a hanger. Hygiene: 5/5. The room was really clean and every morning they changed the sheets and made the bed. Service: 4.5/5. The owners were really friendly and available for everything we needed. Our booking included a continental breakfast but unfortunately it wasn't sufficient for us (too little choice). Price: 4/5. The price is quite fair considering we'd booked with little notice. Overall I'm very satisfied!

My self and 2 other Fridays stopped here for one night in a triple room although the rooms are not the biggest it was absolutely spotless the beds are extremely comfortable the shower is hot and powerful only downside was the WiFi was rubbish but that wasn’t really a problem and I do think the check in time should be an hour earlier than 2pm as we went upstairs to go to the toilet and had seen a triple room had just been finished cleaning by housekeeper and it was the room we were put into but in all like the title highly recommend, lovely staff and fair price
