Considering what Dover is like I was pleasantly surprised with the location of the hotel. It was an Oasis and very grateful for beautiful sea views and much more luxury than I expected. The spa was great but a bit frustrating that there was no relaxation room of an evening. Staff were lovely, room was very comfortable, beds were great. My only issue that was the breakfast was absolutely dreadful. For £16 per head we waited 45 minutes to be brought a meat breakfast when we ordered veggie. Guy behind us had the same. Asked for toast that never arrived. Coffee was half a cup of very bitter old coffee. Most of the breakfast was inedible. One snotty egg. One over cooked. My daughter wanted a croissant. Waited 10 mins trying to get attention only to overhear the waiter telling another table that they run out of pastries. The restaurant was half full, not even busy and we were in there about 9 pm so it wasn’t even late in the day. I did mention it to reception was quite surprised that they didn’t offer me some kind of compensation or money back. Anyway didn’t let it ruin the trip, still can recommend the hotel but not the breakfast.

Hotel's Favourite
Just returned from an excellent couple of days at Dover Marina & Spa hotel. Like all Best Western branded hotels we have stayed in , the team here is excellent. Worthy of special mention is Max in the Bar, who served, tirelessly, food & drinks to tables all with a smile and a quick word to check all was ok and Carla in the Marco Pierre White restaurant, Mr Whites Chop House who is so efficient and cheerful, she always brings a smile to your face. The hotel itself is in the Western corner of the bay adjacent to the old and new marinas, well away from the Eastern Dock Ferry Terminal.Our room 118 offered as a Superior room with sea view balcony offered comfort and superb sea views all the way to France! A brilliant break. Highly Recommended

I stay here a couple of times a year. Worst stay so far. Old rooms, creaky floors, only one working light bulb out of 5 in the room, three switches broken. Bloody finger prints on the bathroom door. Fire exits blocked with furniture and linen. Filthy outside tables. Scruffy staff (bar). Breakfast waiter not wearing mask properly. Weird breakfast rules: not allowed to get your own drinks or pastries, but the waiter is happy to leave lovely finger prints all over the glasses when he serves you. All this for just £140 per night for a single.

Spent just one night here but will certainly return. The location of the hotel is great, right on seafront. Our room was large and overlooked the sea. The staff were very helpful and best of all it had free car parking in a shopping area behind the hotel. Breakfast was excellent. I would certainly recommend this hotel

We stayed for 1 night and enjoyed the Marco pier white romance spa package. We upgraded our room for a sea view with a balcony and it didn’t disappoint. The room was spacious and well decorated. The bathroom was simple, clean and well stocked with complimentary toiletries. The balcony was fabulous with a gorgeous view of the harbour and a view of the live music entertainment downstairs. We enjoyed drinks and a fabulous Asian platter brought to our room on the balcony. Dinner and drinks at the chop house were fab, service was excellent, especially Carly our waitress, nothing was too much. Breakfast was also lovely despite covid restrictions. Connor on reception was polite and efficient and the room service was excellent, and so prompt. We enjoyed the use of the spa and our relaxing massage in the double treatment room. We definitely enjoyed our stay!
