Perched on Dover's seafront, the Best Western Plus Dover Marina Hotel & Spa has views of the English Channel and the White Cliffs of Dover. The coastal town kept foreign invaders at bay between the 13th- and 18th-century, but now conjures up simpler memories of eating ice cream and dipping your toes in the sea.
Dover Castle was the most important part of the town's defenses. The Norman castle is one of the largest in England and stands proud at the top of a hill, five minutes' drive from the hotel. You can climb the Great Tower and explore the secret war tunnels beneath the castle. Prices start from £18.30 for adults. The Victorian South Foreland Lighthouse is around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, while the White Cliffs of Dover Visitor Centre is 10 minutes' drive. Dover Museum tells the town's history and is around five minutes' walk from the hotel. Entry is free.
The hotel has a spa and a fully equipped gym. The restaurant and the Waterfront Bar and Lounge both have sea views. Wi-Fi is free.
