Check out the luxe decor at the Dover George Hotel


The Dover George is Norfolk County’s new premier luxury boutique hotel, nestled just a block from Port Dover’s Main Street. Boasting a prime location (near Canada’s palm-tree-adorned beach) and a mere two-hour drive from the Greater Toronto Area, this exclusive adults-only property offers four uniquely designed suites, accommodating up to two guests each for an intimate experience. Purchased in 2018 and meticulously renovated over four years, The Dover George is a labour of love by co-owners Hélène Larochelle and Michael Nimchuk, reflecting their personal dedication to crafting a truly exceptional retreat.


The building traces its roots back to the mid-1800s, when it started as a humble single-storey wood cabin. Today, the original structure still resides within the walls of The Dover George’s modern exterior, a testament to its enduring legacy.


There are four suites meticulously designed for luxury and ultimate comfort. Each suite exudes simplicity, warmth and sophistication, boasting unique layouts and upscale amenities. From Italian wallpapers (swoon!) to original artwork, fireplaces, and free-standing soaker tubs, every detail has been carefully curated to elevate your stay.

In one of the three equally lavish suites on the second floor or the extravagant penthouse spanning nearly 1,000 sq. ft. on the third, guests can expect nothing less than a sanctuary of indulgence. With premium features such as luxe mattresses, European linens, custom furnishings, and spa-like bathrooms equipped with Dyson hairdryers, every moment at The Dover George is designed for pure bliss.

All in the details

Each suite has a top-notch in-room pour-over coffee program, custom-blended organic bath amenities, and luxurious bath linens and robes. Guests wake up to a gourmet continental breakfast each morning, setting the tone for a day of relaxation or exploring the area. With stylish common areas, The Dover George also provides a perfect backdrop for intimate private gatherings or corporate events.
