Friendly approachable staff. The waiter who served us, I believe his name was Gavin, he was knowledgable about the menu and he gave us just the right amount of time to decide on what we wanted.A reasonable priced set menu with relaxed surroundings would recommend to a friend for

We had booked the stay, initially just for one night, online without much knowledge of the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise. The owner is very proactive as well as a great character that makes the restaurant and hotel a hit. He was full of stories from his days as a chef and

We have just returned from another nice stay, although only for one night. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. We were in a pleasant room that looked like it had been recently decorated. Hospitality tray, iron and ironing board, hairdryer all supplied, free wi-fi. Nice

We had a wonderful meal at Dunkerleys last night and really good value for money. 6 Oysters for a starter and Rump of Lamb for main course £23! Plus an Amuse Bouche and palate cleansing Sorbet thrown in. The wines are excellent value too. Back soon.....

The "Live" light switch with no switch which nearly gave me a shock!
Good morning Dunkerley's My wife and I stayed with you on Saturday June 24th, this was in celebration of our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We have stayed with you on 3 / 4 other occasions and always had a good experience. Sad to say this time was a huge disappointment for us both. From ordering our starters and main the wait seemed to last forever, in fact it was 2 hours, yes 2 hours from ordering until our mains were delivered to our table. My wife had ordered the Asparagus with the poached egg and Hollandaise. My wife asked if she could forgo the poached egg, when it arrived at the table it consisted of 3 tiny sprigs of Asparagus and a splattering of Hollandaise at nearly £8:00 was this value for money " I think not " a couple of extra sprigs of Asparagus in place of the poached egg might have helped or even some Parmesan shavings just to make it look like there was more on the plate. We were offered no bread, our wine order and drinks to forever to come......not good. In fact the table next to us came in after us and got served before us including their starters and mains, again not good. The next morning at breakfast things hadn't improved, again service was poor and very slow, so much so a couple waiting for their breakfast got up from their table and went next door to the Cafe. When booking out I mentioned the above to the lady on reception and she duly made a note of our concerns and said she would have it dealt with. When booking in my details were taken including phone number and email address. I was expecting a response from Dunkerleys but it fairly obvious this isn't going to happen, which probably tells me something about your customer service. Would I say I had value for my £200 + one night stay...... probably not. Hopefully you'll take note of my comments and take steps to insure they are not repeated. Regards.
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience! That is no fun at all. We stopped in for a late lunch (did not spend the night as we were staying in Dover). It was very slow customer-wise and we received our wine and lunch in a timely manner - not fast, but timely.

What about parking.Does the hotel offer a permit for guest's like other resorts Can you park near by
There's a parking lot close to the hotel (on the map) the 'circle' behind the library. Paid parking until the evening and starting again rather early. There's another (between Union and Duke Street) a little further away (follow High Street to the north) where the hours are a bit more friendly.

when you book, mention that you are vegan and we would happily accommodate for your diet requirements :)
