    Property condition


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Not good

    Really sad and run down. Damp and smoky smell throughout, mildew on the windows, no double-glazing (noisy main road) and thin walls. Breakfast is toast, cereals and coffee out a machine only. The staff were helpful enough, though, and the location is good for Victoria station. Much better places nearby for the same money.

    Great location. Close to Victoria station. Staff at the front desk was helpful, however didn't necessarily go above and beyond.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    I always stay at the Dover when I am in London. (about 4 times a year for about two weeks each time. It is so convenient and very clean. The staff is nice, and the towels are huge. They always try to accommodate my request for a ground-floor room as I am 76. Good value for money if you aren't expecting to stay in your hotel room all day in the lap of luxury. I'm out at 9:30 am and return from theatre about 11;00 pm. Close to great bus and tube service.
