Castle House is well appointed and has all en-suite facilities. The breakfast is available from 6 for those leaving on early ferries. The sevice is friendly and attentive. Parking is availbale on street opposite. The bedrooms are comfortable but not over-large. Wifi is available free.

Very friendly welcome despite the fact that we got in really late, we even got a free upgrade to a family room, which was very spacious even though the bathroom was fairly small. Best (and full English) breakfast I've ever had and great location too!

This was our second stay at Castle Guest House and each time we come back to Scotland to visit family our journey back home to France we will stay at the guest house again for us to catch the ferry. It is ideally located for this as it is only a few minutes away from the Eastern Ports. Our hosts...

The most positive: The breakfast is full English, cooked to order as you prefer and served at a time close to your own choosing, providing there are not too many other guest who want it at the same time as you. Location is great for a visit to the castle directly up the hill behind them. The manager was efficient...

For our first night in England after a long flight from Australia, this lovely B&B was perfect - great location, lovely hosts, lovely room, and a great breakfast. Really enjoyed the old-world ambience, but most importantly, had a great night's sleep. Very comfortable in our room ('Dover'), lovely & clean, free Wi-Fi, good tv reception, plenty of facilities in the...

This place was all you need when you travel by a ferry, close to the ferry terminal, well kept and reasonably priced. The hotel building is pretty and is in nice area. The hotel keepers are VERY friendly and hardworking. I really liked the breakfast at the hotel, they had grapefruits, melons, yoghurt, lots of stuff as well as traditional...

I stayed here in March 2013. I was traveling solo, and opted for their less expensive attic room. The room was very small, but adequate for my needs. The double bed occupied most of the room space. The bathroom was very small with virtually no counter space. The shower stall was very small, with just enough room to turn around....

I needed a good B&B for the night in Dover and found the Castle House with Trip Advisor. I was travelling alone and needed just a single room. I opted for one of the attic rooms which was a little cramped but suited my needs. Priced at just £35 for the night including breakfast, I fail to see how they...

We booked for an overnight stay as we had an early saturday morning ferry departure. The parking is on street opposite the building, which is not ideal but we found a spot about 30 yards up the hill and didn't have much luggage etc anyway, so not a problem. First impressions are not good, the door is closed and you...
