Close to Dover castle and port

Posted 15-Jan-2016
Pros: Quiet.
Cons: Shower. Tissues in the room.
Location: Dover castle, etc.
The cottage, which is B&B Fathingloe, is located away from the main habitation area of Dover, on a track of land that only a few years ago housed barracks of workers involved in the construction of the Chunnel (so we were told by the hosts). No traces of those barracks remain, the track of land looks like long green fields hemmed in by the road on the one side and a rising earth bank on the other, but a special road was built off the highway to lead there. It is now a private road closed off by a barrier that needs to be moved by hand if one wants to enter. Not a problem in itself, unless you had not been warned about that, arrive in the dark and it's pouring rain... The sign for a turn-off to B&B is also non-existent. We relied on the navigator, but still got it wrong. We were the only guests on Saturday night, but perhaps not a surprise in the middle of January. Welcomed by the hosts with tea and cake, but a little too much of conversation upon arrival. The room (superior en-suite) was spacious, but furnishings decidedly dated. Clean. No television. No tissues. One soap bar and one shampoo. The shower did not work, so we had to put up with separate hot and cold water taps for the bath tub and sink. We arrived late, so decided not to bother the hosts about the shower... but we did miss it on a cold winter night. Slept okay, despite the terrific storm outside. The breakfast was alright, but nothing to write home about. Your regular English fare.

Aardige lui maar verder niet super

Posted 21-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Super goed en warm ontvangen, aardige lui, minor punt, geen tv of enige andere manier van ontspanning, geen mogelijkheid om iets te drinken of een snack te kopen, daar je redelijk ver weg bent van de plaats Dover zou dat een idee zijn om over na te denken, en geen eigen toilet en douche.

Ideal für die Fähre

Posted 06-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen. Die Mutter der Besitzerin war Deutsche, so dass die Besitzerin sehr gut Deutsch spricht. Das Haus ist von 1790, aber in einem sehr guten Zustand. Einziger Kritikpunkt war, dass die Gemeinschaftsdusche nicht húndertprozentig sauber war. Von einer Gemeinschaftsdusche kann man das wohl auch nicht erwarten. Das nächste mal werden wir ein Zimmer mit eigenem Bad buchen. Das Frühstuck war sehr gut. Wir entschieden uns alle für ein englisches Früstück. Aber auch das kontinentale Frühstück machte einen sehr guten Eindruck.

cher pour un confort minimal

Posted 23-Aug-2015
Cons: signalisation depuis la route, balisage. une salle de bain par chambre et toilettes séparées.
Difficile de trouver cet établissement de nuit (mal signalé,route privée fermée par une barrière, non éclairée, indications lacunaires de notre interlocuteur. Salle de bain très sommaire : toilettes auxquelles on a ajouté une douche, lavabo étriqué car il s'agit du lave main, salle de bain commune pour nos deux chambres (perte de temps le matin, impossible d'utiliser les toilettes quand une des 4 personnes prenait sa douche). Petit déjeuner correct.

Immer wieder!

Posted 29-Jul-2015 on Hotels
Sehr herzliche Vermieter. Ein herrliches altes Gebäude in sehr gepflegtem Zustand. Etwas außerhalb der Stadt, dafür idyllisch und ruhiges Wohnen. Wenn ich wieder nach Dover komme würde ich nur hier übernachten wollen. Vielen Dank für den angenehmen Aufenthalt.
