Stayed in the bridal suite for 2 nights, and had the most amazing wedding here. The staff always went above and beyond. Due to lockdown this was our third attempt, and this was the best venue by far. They made us feel at ease, like nothing was an issue and the day ran so smoothly

Winter Wedding 11/12/21
I can not recommend Sian and her team enough. Sian is a fun loving, beautiful soul who will go beyond the extra mile a million times. We had the most beautiful winter wedding here and I do not have 1 grumble. The food was amazing, the staff exceptional and we were treated like royalty throughout. Weddings are so stressful, as A bride I panicked , cried, changed my mind and literally put my whole day in the hands of Sian and team, they did disappoint and at no point was I ever given a no. Fully flexible around covid rules too. Sian and all you team you are AMAZING I will never forget our beautiful day EVER. Thank you again Sarah and Will x

The hotel made our wedding the best day ever. Staff were very helpful and catered for all our needs with No question asked. Staff went above and beyond. We were well looked after. Sian was an amazing event coordinator and works hard to make the day so special. Luke (I think his name was) was excellent from day 1 of our 2 day stay for the wedding. He helped with unloading of the cars, room service, Maintance, check in, food, drinks and just everything we asked for. All the staff went above and beyond. The manager also worked to make the day special. We would highly recommended this hotel to everyone. Well worth the money

We got married on 22nd June 2019 and it was perfect the staff so helpful and friendly they couldnt do enough for us especially Sian the events manager and Suresh the general manager. I even designed my own menus and there was no issues or complaints the room was perfect and even though we didnt get to use the spa facilities it was nice for myself my mum and a family friend to have a tour of the hotel as we worked there over 20 years ago what a upgrade over the years. Everything was perfect for us and no complaints from anyone everyone enjoyed our day thankyou Suresh Sian and all the staff from the cleaners, maintenance staff, kitchen staff, restaurant staff, bar and reception staff upto the managers and owners once again thankyou so so much for making our day so special..

Perfect seaside wedding venue
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Dover Marina Hotel in May 2019. The Wedding & Events Coordinator, Sian, looked after us from the moment we met her to take a look at the venue, right up until the evening reception - even coming to find us on the dance floor to make sure we had our room key for the night! Nothing was too much trouble for Sian, she was always on hand to answer my (many!) questions and made us feel so much more at ease about the whole process. The venue had been recently refurbished, the ceremony and reception room have beautiful sea views. All staff on the day were incredibly professional and polite, particularly Luke who looked after us and our guests throughout the wedding breakfast and evening reception. It was evident the staff were highly trained service professionals and that they cared about their work. The food was incredible, we opted for afternoon tea as our wedding breakfast and my guests are still talking about "the best scotch eggs they've ever eaten"! The evening buffet was also delicious, you could really tell all food was freshly prepared by trained chefs. On the wedding night we stayed in the recently refurbished Bridal suite which was phenomenal. Great views over the sea, room was sparkling clean and the bottle of bubbly from the staff was just the cherry on the cake of a perfect day. I wholeheartedly recommend the Dover Marina Hotel for any event or even for just a stay in the Hotel
