“Beautiful views, spotlessly clean, better than pictured from exterior”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Castleview lives up to its name and then more. From the front room one can see France even on a slightly misty day in addition to the view of Dover Castle from the terrace and from the comfortable bedroom. Spotlessly clean, well decorated and with all you might desire in a self catering cottage. We loved our time here and would have booked more if it had been available. The shower was great and new with self enclosure and we loved the light and fan that turned on when you entered the bathroom and shut down when you left. The hosts were charming and helpful. They live next door but are not at all intrusive. Very helpful about where to shop and delighted to provide anything requested. We have self catered all over England and this a favorite that we would return to and would recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in the Dover area. Lots to see Dover Castle, White Cliffs, Canterbury too much to describe all available in an easy day of driving.

“Modern Flat with Outstanding Views”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015
2
people found this review helpful

Wonderfully located atop one of the highest hills in Dover, this flat is just five minutes by car from central Dover. Honestly, I wouldn’t have wanted to stay in Dover central. It doesn’t have the subtle beach town beauty that I prefer. So, being a bit out of town, away from the noise, grime, and activity was a welcome reprieve.

The view is truly panoramic, offering 180 degree views of the English Channel, and a bird’s eye view of the Dover harbor. The property is well laid out in modern decor with clean lines and efficient use of space. It was impeccably clean, with well designed kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom spaces. The second bedroom had great bunkbed spaces for kids. The bed in the master was very comfortable with a lovely sliding glass door onto a private patio and fenced yard.

Internet was fast at 9Mpbs down and 1.1Mbps up. It was stable and I didn’t have any problem plugging my portable hotspot into the router (easier for frequent travel).

It took me no more than 9 minutes to get to the Dover castle, and maybe another 5 to get to the Dover cliffs. For a short weekend, this is the place to be.

The owners, who live next door, were quite helpful, polite, and left me be in spite of my odd hours. Very nice to have help close by but not invasive. Would that all owners were like them.
