I visited for a " spa trio break" with my wife in June 2015.
This was a 2 night stay at the hotel with bed and buffet breakfast and includes 3 spa treatments each (from a pre-provided list)
The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom was tidy and well maintained, and the commal areas were also clean.
The hotel is a bit dated as it was built many years ago, and it can be improved with upgrades as follows:
- There is no air conditioning in the rooms
- The TV signal was sometimes poor, but mostly worked well
- WiFi was very slow (albeit free!)
The balcony was nice, however there is no privacy as all the balconies at the front of the hotel are joined together, and only separated by a 2 foot railing which overlooks into the next balcony.
However, it was clean and provides a wonderful view of the beach, pier, and the cruise terminal in the distance.
The size of the TV was reasonable, however because the room was so spacious it made the TV feel small when watching it from the bed!
Breakfast was amazing. Freshly cooked food and lots of variety. The dining area was clean and spacious and the staff were welcoming and friendly.
The spa staff were very professional and did a very good job. The spa area has been decorated nicely and provides a very relaxing atmosphere.
The gym facilities appear to be well maintained and is also spacious and clean but we did not get a chance to use them.
The evening restaurant menu was limited because we are vegetarian, and there isn't anywhere local to eat, which caused slight problems but we were still fed sufficiently by the restaurant and it kept us going! (the fish and chips were satisfactory)
Overall, it was an enjoyable stay. For the price we paid, I can't expect to be in heaven, but it was well worth the price and the friendly staff really made our stay even better.
I would recommend this hotel to others, and I would definitely stay again if I find myself visiting Dover in the future. less
