Location is amazing! Walked everywhere by foot to all the main attractions in Dover - this includes Dover castle & the White Cliffs. Would recommend if you are looking for an affordable night's stay at somewhere central. To top it up, breakfast is amazing (I'm just sorry I couldn't finish the whole pot of tea Gilly brewed for me!), room is clean & spacious, and bathroom is perfect with a retreat in the tub after a whole's day walk.. :)

Our room was light and spacious with views of Dover Castle. Gilly provided a lovely breakfast and lots of information about where we could eat dinner and things to see and do. Would definitely recommend staying there.

Gilly' should was phenomenal. Liz also welcomed us with open arms and with so much warmth. The house was bright and clean and so conveniently located in the center of the town. We will never forget the lovely breakfast spread and the cookies. Dover was truly unforgettable because of Gilly's house.

I had an amazing time staying at Gilly's place. She was so welcoming and was very kind to offer me breakfast and a ride to the White Cliffs. Her home is absolutely lovely and is just a 5-minute walk from the bus stop. I also had a wonderful view of the Dover castle from my bedroom window. Her house is also close to some great restaurants and pubs in Dover (would definitely recommend going to Rack of Ale, if you're visiting). I would definitely like to visit her again. :)

We were hosted by Liz who met us early to check in. The home is located conveniently next to town centre and just a few minutes from Dover Castle. Our third floor bedroom was spacious and the bed was comfortable. Liz also provided light breakfasts during our stay. A pleasan stay.
