Trivia and History
The A2 Jubilee Way out of Dover opened in 1977. A narrow piece of land next to the Duke of York Roundabout (sometimes called Guston Roundabout) was later used to develop the service area.
The filling station was planned by Heron Garages in 1988 and opened in around 1989 with a Heron branded forecourt known locally as Guston Court Farm Service Station. By 1992, the site had been handed over to Elf. By the early 2000s, the site had been purchased by Total. The site was then purchased by Shell in 2012 who refurbished the site with new pumps and tanks as well as rebranded the shop to their own brand Select and removing the jet wash.
Plans for a restaurant and hotel to join the filling station date back to 1989 where two plans were proposed including one from Margram who proposed a 38-bed hotel and 88-seater restaurant. Neither of these were built and Margram later submitted plans in 1994 for a 40-bed hotel which again wasn't built.
In 1995, Whitbread received planning permission to build a pub-restaurant south of the filling station closest to the Guston roundabout and in 1996 opened the Duke of York branch of Brewers Fayre named after the neighbouring Duke of York Military School next door. Plans for a hotel continued in 1996 with Margram proposing a 60-bed hotel alongside a diner. In 1997, Whitbread proposed a 40-bed Travel Inn to be built to the north of the filling station and this eventually opened in 1998. Due to the location of the hotel, it is accessed via a long driveway which runs alongside the filling station. In 2016, the hotel received a 20-bed two-storey extension.
In early 2018, the shop was refurbished and is now a Budgens convenience store.
In 2020, the car wash was removed to make way for Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging points which are due to go live here soon.
