Not sure I really need to add any detail? But here you go any way: - fab location - right on the beach. Great for early morning stone-skimming, mid- morning strolls, afternoon walks in the sunshine, early evening pre-dinner appetisers, moonlit promenades; - historic building that hasn't been messed about with; - great service from EVERONE - even the barman,...

A one night stay at this lovely old hotel. One of the charms of this hotel is that it is directly on the beach. There is no road between it and the sea – just a narrow pedestrian promenade. We had one of the three rooms on the first floor with a large terrace overlooking the sea – bliss. The... More

I stayed one night in single room, visiting family locally. At £105 per night I felt it was rather expensive and for that price I only had a street view - I would have had to pay £30 more to see the sea! The room was OK, comfortable and not too noisy, but at breakfast I'd somehow turned invisible! I... More

My elderly parents stayed at the hotel for a few days, the staff were absolutely wonderful and were really kind and respectful and made their stay very pleasant indeed. Nothing was too much trouble, room was lovely overlooking the sea with a lovely big balcony. Would certainly stay again. Thank you to everyone at the hotel.

We were lucky enough to book a balcony room (Nelson) and it was great. A large balcony right on the beach with large double doors leading from the room. We had breakfast on the balcony, perfect start to a Sunday in the morning sun 😊 The staff are really friendly and helpful, the room is well stocked with toiletries, water,... More

Stayed for one night in The Wellington Room and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is situated right on the beach and the three best rooms have the most amazing view and each have a wonderful balcony, ours even had it's own private access to the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the decor tasteful, although some of the finishes... More

Lovely staff and good hearty breakfast. A pleasant room, clean and with everything we needed. Got a last minute cancellation and what a find. Right on the beach with parking and food all on site. Had a meal in the bar which was keenly priced along with the drinks. Well worth a visit and a stay.

The Wellington suite is an amazing luxury room--the fantasy 'beach hut' you've always dreamed of. The staff great too. I left my home keys behind and Michelle was attempting to find a secure way to return them before I'd even got home. They arrived packed in a box a day later. I'd like to thank her for the excellent service.... More

Having signed up to the Shepherd Neame birthday offer (2-4-1 on your birthday for main meals) we popped in to The Royal for a bite to eat. Staff extremely helpful and very friendly. Food was lovely and tasty (steak exactly as ordered) and the children's menu was very impressive. Good selection of beers /wines and plenty of tables to sit... More
