Stayed at the Sandgate for an overnight stay in July for a local wedding. Unfortunately the hotel's nice location on the seafront was pretty much the only positive. A number of people from our wedding party stayed at the hotel and given it was simply a stopover to sleep at for a few hours it inspired a remarkable amount of... More

The latter was a dirty room, and smelle awfull, we were then given 2 other rooms. The towels in thise rooms were wet, not damp, but wet. The girl at the counter said... More

This is our second stay in this hotel. The staff are helpful and friendly. This time we stayed in rooms with a sea view, which were better than our previous ones at the back. The room itself was nicely decorated. However there were bits and pieces in need of some repair. The tiles on the bathroom floor were lose obviously... More

Stayed at this hotel on way to France, thankfully it was for just one night.....don't be deceived by the images on the internet! This hotel is in need of a MAJOR refurb. Carpets dirty, bathroom dirty with broken bits, toilet never seen bleach, broken windows, bed linen dirty, broken stair balustrades & wallpaper peeling away. On arrival it was like... More

We arrived at the hotel at the start of our trip to France. Thought it looked nice from the pictures and so booked it for a night before the ferry crossing. Mistake!!! This hotel has a very nice and pleasant Manager, but I do feel it is all getting too much for her to look after. We were met by... More

Was so disgusted with the state of the hotel I didn't even get my dog out the car! Cancelled went elsewhere. Worst looking hotel I've ever seen! Worldwide! Balcony rooms supposed to be the best!!! Heaven forbid! Horrendous honestly

Stayed here for one night after attending a wedding. We paid £50 for one night, shouldn't have expected much from the hotel considering how cheap it was. The rooms are small but cosy, the carpet has got a few stains in some places. The bed was neatly done but also had some stains on the sheets. The mattress was terribly... More

We stayed here at £100 for one night. Great sea views. Noisy Road. But worst of all was the room. Carpet had some disgusting looking stains. Bed extremely uncomfortable due to springs pressing into our backs all night. Old furniture and bathroom had damp patches and toilet loose. Not what we would expect for £100.
