A traditional B+B - recommended

Posted 14-Jun-2016 on Hotels
I booked it as a stop over before joining the Ferry at Dover . I was warmly welcomed by the owners and the room was very pleasant , and in keeping with the building. The location was good with countryside views from the room. There was no TV in the room , but for me this was not an issue.

Farthingloe is situated in quiet part of Dover, outside of the main town, surrounded by fields. We were warmly welcomed by the owners who invited us in to their private living room for tea/coffee and home-made cake. We all had a comfortable night in the room and enjoyed a good English breakfast with a variety of cereals, fruits, yoghurt, etc. We would certainly recommend it and stay there again ourselves.

You DON'T EXIST After you Check Out!

Posted 20-Feb-2016
Pros: Quiet since it's in the boonies. I can't say enough how unfriendly these guys turn on guests when they pay up the next day!
Cons: Owners should take lessons in customer service and not be so obvious that they dislike the B&B business and do it only for the money.
Location: It's out of the way from anywhere. You will need to take a cab (15 quid) to get to the town or cruise ship port (which is why most come to this town)
Older couple who run B&B have TWO FACES. Smiling when you check-in, hugely unfriendly when you check-out! If you're waiting for a cab or want to hang out an hour after check-out, they WON'T let you hang out anywhere inside....even in the "B&B Lobby"! They put you into the front yard while your waiting for anything or anyone. And it was cold the morning we were exposed. You can see the guy is anti-social and view you as a paycheck nuisance....it certainly wasn't an "us" issue but "them" issue as I witnessed the SAME BEHAVIOR with ALL guests. B&B has some charm but should be AVOIDED due to the unfriendly curmudgeons running the place. Your money is best spent elsewhere.

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.
