Property Information:

Historic Grade II listed Inn, the oldest in Dover, nestling in the shadow of Dover Castle behind the beach and just a short stroll from the Ferry port for boats to France and Europe.

Freshly converted into Dover Backpackers with a mix of en suite family rooms and youth hostel style bunks.

A great place to wait for the ferry to France and as a result of being the 'last bar in Britain,' we have had the coolest of guests; 3 of the Beatles, all of the Rolling Stones, Sir Cliff Richard and actor Hugh Grant.

    Going through other reviews dos doesn't do BackPackers justice! Sure it could do with a bit more modernisation and some hot water but for value for money, friendliness and a all round great atmosphere which was in abundance!! Definitely coming back!!
