I stayed here for one night for a wedding in July. The room was very comfortable, nice bedding and linen. Tea and coffee provided with biscuits. But because it was a very hot night people were drinking quite late out in the garden, which was below my hotel room. So very noisy! I had the best cooked breakfast I have... More

We chose this pub/restaurant because of its central location and it didn't disappoint. We parked fairly close by and the coastal path, harbour and shops/restaurants were all within a short distance. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was the most comfortable we've slept in away from home for ages. The pillows too were really comfortable. Plenty of tea/coffee... More

This lovely pub is right in the centre of Whitstable - it has six rooms and is an ideal retreat from which to explore the town. The food is upmarket tappas and there is a lovely courtyard and stable restaurant. Very friendly and laid back staff - we hope to return again soon. Highly recommended. Lots of live bands in... More

We enjoy socialising in Whitstable for the great town, beach, pubs and resturants so we decided to stay the night so we can make the most of what this great town has to offer. We were very lucky to be able to book this Inn as it's is slap bang in the centre of town and and gets booked very... More

Great central location, good views from our spacious dual aspect room overlooking both the High Street and Harbour Street. Very friendly and accomodating staff - no strict timings for breakfast or check out and quite possibly one of the best breakfasts I have had! Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on my next visit to Whitstable.

We are going down Whitstable quite a lot but never stayed at the Duke of Cumberland. All we can say is that we were pleasantly surprised by a really large room in very good order with nice old features such an interesting old radio and a very nice coffee table. Even being on the main road, there was no noise... More

Came up from London after a period of hard work and found the perfect place to relax, 30 seconds from the beach, lively bar with a friendly staff and a cracking breakfast all for a great price, wish I could get down more often.

Bit of a quirky place but a lovely room and a fantastic breakfast. The staff were friendly and chatty. It's all very laid back. We didn't even sign in and check out was pretty much whenever we pleased. The pub was heaving when the live music was on but a great atmosphere. The location couldn't be more central. In all,...

We had just one night in The Duke of Cumberland as we were visiting one of our favourite restaurants (Wheelers) and rather than doing the usual toss up as to who is going to drive, we decided to stay overnight. The Duke of Cumberland is one of the few places that offer just a single night accommodation. Most of the... More
