We have often called here for drinks on the terrace when staying in Hythe. The sea view is breathtaking, despite the very busy road below. With rooms at just £40 a night we decided to take our weekend break here for a change. We had the last room - no 12 - at the top back. When I stepped inside... More

Stayed this week end, Pre booked a couple of weeks ago for £40.00, including breakfast. Great location, room was good and no issues, really friendly staff, just needs a little bit of money spent on it, would recommend. Could easily charge more.

Couple of tiles coming off the floor etc. However, it had everything we needed, staff we really friendly and the breakfast was amazing. For the price we can't complain. Would... More

We were just travelling back from France and stopped one night. Pleasantly impressed with location, right across road from pebble beach (being re-pebbled by Folkestone council). Very good value overlooking sea with a small balcony. Comfy night. Very good breakfast (I had proper kipper with 2 perfectly poached eggs). On the negative side, there were a couple of niggly maintenance... More

We stayed at the sandgate hotel last Saturday night for one night, and this was more than enough! Our hotel room was very tired, broken bathroom floor tiles, missing tops off the taps, dirty pillow cases, filthy bath mat, threadbare towels, with holes and frayed edges. Amenities in the room are very basic, tea and coffee, two bottles of water,... More

Over night stop for the tunnel. Great value for money- clean tidy good breakfast and accepts dogs at no extra charge. Very friendly and helpful staff, they even printed out things I needed which I emailed to them . The rooms could use a bit of a spruce up but they are fine - bedside lamp would be good... But...

Wonderful position overlooking the sea. There was a mistake with online booking - no sea-view room was available but this was speedily remedied with a generous discount for a smaller back room. Bed very comfortable, breakfast generous and well cooked. The friendly, attractive and helpful staff more than made up for the shortcomings of the somewhat worn furnishings and carpets.

We were travelling to France via shuttle and wanted somewhere nearby to stay overnight. Booked 1 night stay via Booking.com at £50 for B&B. Had read some of the reviews on here, so expectations were not the highest - fancied a change from Folkestone. Pleasant surprise on reaching the hotel, lovely sea front location, parking was outside the hotel on... More

I held an event at The Sandgate Hotel and I have to say, we all had a fabulous time! Before I start the review, it would be wrong of me not to say that the hotel is in dire need of some tlc - and soon. The rooms are tired and the further away from the bar/restaurant you go, the... More
