The Hotel has been renovated to cater for the 21st-century guest while retaining its Victorian charm and elegance. A Grade II listed building Dover Marina Hotel has retained its original appearance. There are balconies on the first floor and the ground floor alcoves in the restaurant and bar overlook the sea.
Located on Dover’s waterfront, the terrace garden boasts outdoor seating allowing you to relax and enjoy the sea views. For weddings, the front facade of the Hotel with Dover Castle in the background make for an ideal backdrop for excellent photos.
There is a large spa and health club, which features a salon, seven spa treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, relaxation area and large gym; so there’s plenty of scope here for some well-deserved pre- or post- wedding R&R. There are also two Marco Pierre White dining outlets – Mr White’s English Chophouse and a Wheeler’s Fish & Chips. In addition, there’s a cafe serving breakfast and Starbucks coffee and the Waterfront Lounge Bar.
CEREMONY TO CELEBRATIONS
The Hotel’s function rooms are all licensed for ceremonies. The Chartwell can seat 120, The Blenheim 45 and The Winston 180. Receptions take place in The Chartwell or The Blenheim and there’s a removable wall between the two making one larger space for grand-scale weddings. The former can seat 100 guests for the wedding breakfast, while the latter can accommodate 32. Overall maximum capacity for a wedding breakfast and evening reception is 120.
The Best Western Plus Dover Marina Hotel & Spa is set to expand in 2023-24 with the addition of 36 more guest rooms, and an additional function room to cater for weddings with up to 120 guests, a bistro and lounge bar. Plans for the expansion are with the Council with the 13 new guest rooms in the Western wing already receiving planning approval.
