Accommodation near Dover
« on: February 02, 2019, 12:22:25 PM »
I'm considering taking an early morning ferry from Dover sailing at 7.30 so arriving at the port at 6.30.
I need some accommodation with safe secure parking within half an hour of the port.

The average B&B wouldn't seem to fit the bill as leaving before 6am is impractical.
Does anyone know of any reasonably priced hotels that would fit the bill?  Safe parking is paramount.

Yes, I've got somewhere in mind near Arras should I decide to cross the evening before.

I've looked on Booking.com and though there's no shortage of accommodation in or around Dover I haven't seen any in a quiet area with secure parking as web site descriptions are a bit sketchy when it comes to parking.

I just wondered if anyone had local knowledge or had stayed somewhere suitable.

 :0461: I go Hull/Zebrugge nowadays but when I used to go Dover, I'd have early night, travel down early hours to miss the traffic, get that early ferry then ride on until tiredness set in.

Crockshard Farm House is out in the sticks and very safe - 'bout 30 mins to the ferry port I reckon
