      Historical Traveler Reviews The Dover Hotel London

      Very good for the price


      Bedroom and bathroom were very small, but overall a great room for the price. Hotel was clean and in a great location, near Victoria Station and a short walk to Buckingman Palace. I would stay there again.



      We were required to pay the full amount when we checked in. No wonder! We would have left first thing in the morning if we hadn't. Didn't get any sleep the first night. Even though it was a Wednesday there was a steady flow of traffic up and down the stairs and doors banging all night. At 2 a.m. a man stood outside our door and had a loud and lengthy telephone conversation.

      Each morning a waitress brought toast to the table without a word or a smile. We helped ourselves to cold cereal and hot drinks from machines. There were 2 men taking turns at reception. One may have been shy, the other was just surly.

      The shower and toilet were teeny, as was the room. We had an uncomfortable stay and the staff were not friendly at all.

      I would not stay at this hotel again.

      Nothing to complain


      We had double room with own toilette and shower. Room was tiny but enough anyway. Hotel was clean and tidy but of course old carpet was stqined and worn-out.

      Breakfast was 2 kinds of juice, 5 cereals, toast, hot drinks, butter and marmalade.

      Situation was very good. No noice from the staion. I can recommed this 2 star hotel. Bed was very good.

      Fine for 2 star hotel


      I had booked a triple ensuite. None were available on ceck in, so was given a double ensuite and a single. Was an acceptable budgit hotel. It was conveniently located within 3 blocks of Victoria station (athough a little difficult to find). It is very old and a little run down, but clean. The rooms were VERY small (even by European standards). Front desk was helpful.

      So So


      I stayed here in a triple room with two others for one night only. The hotel itself is part of a terrace with the Calvados Hotel next door run by the same folks.

      This is a basic hotel, as the prices would lead you to believe. You get a bed, a very small bathroom which appears to have been installed as a single unit - i.e. the whole bathroom is installed in one go. As this is an old building, some of the floors are uneven which can mean you sleep on a slant (not me fortunately but my friend did have to sleep like this). The stairs between floors are steep so think carefully about staying here if you have restricted mobility.

      Overall, for 20 per person (3 people) for a night this wasn't bad, and it does include breakfast which we didn't have time to sample as we checked out at 5:30am.

      If you're on a budget I'm sure this place is great but I wouldn't want to spend any more than one night here.

      ... helps us pick out buildings of significance and gives us a chance to rest our weary legs while seeing some beautiful architecture.

      After the tour we stop for afternoon tea then pick up supplies for dinner and Jo and Mark's. It's a good family get together with Mark's parents popping in for a chat before we enjoy a feed of home made lasagne and garlic bread. We head back to the hotel to rest up before a big Christmas ...

We edged as close as we could without aggravating the security policeman cradling his rather large AK machine gun. Feeling rather pleased with ourselves, we decided to celebrate by resuming plank position outside the palace. For those of you who are probably thinking 'What The?', this came about ...

      ... suppose to take pictures, but I managed a few! ;)

      The Abbey is stunning; the sheer number of people buried there is mind boggling ... the architecture, rich history, religious significance, and scale is mind numbing.


      Off to the "big smoke" again!

      ... because we certainly were walkers! Walker's was built in 1694 and was originally an Irish bank.... so probably it could have been frequented by William III as he changed up his Euros for overseas escapades with Mary II? Lunch was excellent.....pie and mash for Bob and a bowl of gruel for Jan. Refreshed we again ventured out into the "grey" of London....and headed to Downing Street. Of course, you can't get anywhere near No. 10 ....the place is guarded ...

      Greer, Katie, Suzi and I hit Camden Town for 80's versus 90's night tonight. First we had drinks at our place and then went in there.

      It was like flashback 80's club with a bit of 90's thrown in. Even though the floor was completely covered in alcohol, it was ...
