We stayed in May 2015 for a long weekend, to explore Dover and the surrounding area. There is free parking although this is in a public car park behind the hotel, I couldn't see any security cameras but it looks like a quiet area. The first room we were given had a noisy macerator in the bathroom so we asked for a different room and they happily obliged, apparently only a few of the rooms have a macerator. The room was not huge but big enough, and clean. The bed was very good, firm, comfortable and not lumpy. It was on wheel though and if you sit up in bed and lean back against the wall, the bed rolls forward a few inches!
We couldn't get the TV service to work and reported the problem at about 9pm. After an hour it still wasn't working and we went to bed, but it was fixed by the next morning and we got a free bottle of wine by way of apology.
Breakfast was a buffet with plenty to choose from. We had dinner in the restaurant one night which was an excellent meal and reasonably priced. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful but seemed a bit disorganised. We were shown to our table by one lady who told us the special was seabass, then when we asked the waiter about the special he said it was salmon. Periodically someone would come out of the kitchen with a couple of plates of food but apparently no idea which table they were for.
Overall a fine hotel and we would be happy to return.

On arrival we were welcomed by a very friendly young lady on reception. After check in we were shown to our suite which was beautiful. We had a light lunch of sandwiches which were ok, in the bar area.
We had friends join us in the evening for a 3 course a la carte dinner which was superb. Our waiters were very knowledgable of the menu and took the time to explain the choices. The New Zealand wine comes highly recommend too!
After a good nights sleep in the comfortable bed we had a very nicely cooked English breakfast.
The Marquis is an expensive treat but well worth it.
The food is top class and what we liked was the portion size is just right.
We would highly recommend to friends and family and we look forward to a return visit.
I was running quite late, but never the less two hours after I had planned to arrive I was greeted and shown to my room. The shower was just what I needed after a 6 hour car drive!
I needed to be up early the next morning, and had breakfast bang on 8.30, when I had planned.
The hotel was good/okay.
It was little bit dark, it is hard to explain.
The hotel staff lived on the first floor of the hotel (family run) so when I had a question it seemed like I was bothering them.
I didnt go for breakfast because the breakfast time was way to early.
I only stayed for one night so for the rate it was good
Very enjoyable stay. A little far from Dover for walking into, definitely need transport. Bus service close and easily accessible tho...and Crabbel Hill Village very easy walking distance. (One route does have a bit of a hill and is poorly lit at night, but very pretty in the daytime)

Famed for its iconic white cliffs, Dover is a major ferry port on the English Channel. The castle sits upon the steep, chalk face and is a great family destination, offering exciting medieval entertainment and winding tunnels to explore. Calais is visible from the pebbled Dover Beach on a clear day - an ideal spot to sit and watch the boats come in.
