Building of the hotel commenced in April 1972 and the opening followed on 10 December 1973. It can best be described by saying that it contained all the modern conveniences of the day plus other refinements such as swimming pool. It changed hands in January 1985 when Queens Moat Houses, who also owned the "Dover Stage", bought the hotel, naming it "Dover Moat House".
