Comfortable
This is a small, privately owned hotel, conveniently located near the centre of Dover, within walking distance of the seafront, as well as the Market Square and shopping street. In regard to the room I was in, although small for a double, it had all the basic facilities including ensuite shower room and toilet, hairdryer, TV, kettle, bottled water, a supply of tea and coffee etc. It was clean and had everything necessary for a comfortable overnight stay. The room was on the first floor, overlooking the garden used by guests from the basement bar. On this occasion, there was noise from the garden, in the evening until closing time, as might on a warm summer evening. The hotel did not provide breakfast, but there are a number of cafes nearby, which open early to serve breakfasts, even on a Sunday. The cost in relation to quality of accommodation makes this good value for money.

Nice Overnight Stay
clean bed and bathroom are the most important things for me. Lovely old house.

The cellar bar was great. Loved the food and friendly patrons who helped with the beer selection. Felt bad we could not leave a tip when paying by card.

Blakes One Nighter
We had a very pleasant stay at Balakes on a rough \"one nighter\" before crossing the Channel. The room was large and comfortable, the food in the bar was excellent and the atmosphere downstairs in the bar was jolly - a lovely evening without having to brave the elements.

Pleasant Accommodation
We booked a family room and it turned out to be quite spacious. The overall impression of the hotel and the room was that it was not new and with no intention of modernization. But actually everything was in good working order and nice and clean. Tea, coffee, water in the room. Owners nice and welcoming.

A Nice Place To Stay........
Beautiful, town centre B&B with a cellar bar offering select beers, ciders and wines. The people working there are fabulous, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food is lovely and well priced. Highly recommend if you are staying in Dover.

Thank You
Ok, Blakes isn't the most modern hotel you will stay in, but it is possibly the friendliest. From the locals in the bar, to the owners. And the lamb kleftico is the best we have tasted, even after visiting Cypress ans Greece. If we ever go back to Dover we will stay there again.

The White Cliffs of Dover - Landmark

Distance 0.34 miles (0.55 km)
There can be no doubt that The White Cliffs of Dover are one of this country's most spectacular natural features. They are an official icon of Britain and have been a symbol of hope and freedom for centuries. You can appreciate their beauty and enjoy their special appeal through the seasons by taking one of the dramatic clifftop walks, which offer unrivalled views of the busy English Channel and the French coast. While here, learn more about the fascinating military and penal history of The White Cliffs and savour the rare flora and fauna only found on this chalk grassland. Note: toilets only available when Visitor Centre open

Dover Castle - Kent - Castle

Dover Castle - Kent - Castle

Distance 0.72 miles (1.15 km)
At 18:57 hours on 26 May 1940, the signal was received to start Operation Dynamo the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force and French troops from Dunkirk's beaches on the northern coast of France. The network of underground tunnels beneath Dover Castle became the nerve centre of the whole operation. The best estimate was that only 45,000 of the troops could be brought back, yet Winston Churchill announced to the House of Commons on 4 June that 338,000 troops had been saved, despite the operation itself coming under attack.Today, you can experience life as it was lived by the 700 personnel based here in the worst days of the World War II. Relive the drama as a wounded pilot is taken into the underground hospital to fight for his life and see the Command Centre that Churchill visited to see the plans that helped lead to Allied victory.
