We met relatives for a meal and there were 10 of us - so we had a room to ourselves. the food was really good and the service was excellent. I would recommend it. There is a very pleasant bar area and on a sunny day a wonderful decking area outside overlooking the sea.

I can't praise this hotel enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my two nights here and wish I could have extended and stayed another two! I had a balcony room - large, stylish, comfortable - huge balcony with table and chairs, almost on the beach. The room had a bathtub in the room itself - which was a quirky touch, and I... More

It's a very quaint hotel. The floors are not very even as it's a few hundred years old but that's what makes it interesting and different. The rooms are very comfortable and well furnished, named after British naval and army leaders. It sits by the sea and our room had stairs outside where you could walk directly on to the... More

We stayed overnight while visiting friends locally and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A 17th century hotel (Nelson and Emma Hamilton stayed there) situated virtually on the beach. Our room "Collingwood" was on the second floor and enjoyed great sea views. The hotel is certainly very old with nary a right angle in sight but all the better for it. The... More

Stayed at the hotel with family in one of the family rooms. From the start the staff were all very welcoming. The receptionist reserved a table for us for dinner as she explained that the hotel was quite busy. Dinner at the bar was good, food was hot and a nice atmosphere. Breakfast the next day was good, staff again... More

What a lovely hotel! We had a room for three and it was wonderful - not one of those places where they've pulled out the sofa bed or added a camp bed. It was really large, with the single beds round a corner and all beds super-comfy. The bathroom was enormous too. We didn't have a sea view, but it... More

A lovely place for a coffee on a nice day as you can sit outside and look out to sea or just people watch. It would be nice for eating inside but far too many dogs with some being allowed to sit at the table. However the restaurant is much better to eat in but quite plain decor. Food is... More

Took the family for Mother's Day meal. The service was excellent and the staff could not do more to make you comfortable. However, the chef does not know how to make a Yorkshire Pud! What I had resembled a chinese prawn cracker in consistency. By 'eck!

A hidden gem. Located right next to the beach at Deal this hotel is a good place for a quiet break. The three rooms with balconies are lovely as they are spacious and you can have breakfast sitting out on the balcony (under the heater unless very hardy!) with a wonderful view of the sea. They cost more but are... More

This was by far, the best hotel I’ve experienced for the money. The room was spacious, the bathroom was large with a double sink and towel warmers. Everything was fresh and looked like it had recently been redone. The location is next to the pier and the only establishment on the water side of Beach Street. The food and drinks... More
