Booked by 'phone with Lara and paid half the cost, as a deposit, by card. Stayed during the busiest weekend in Whitstable's calendar: The Oyster Festival. Arrived to a packed bar (as the bad weather had driven attendees of the festival indoors). A warm welcome from Kelly and an upgrade on-the-spot from the bar-manager. Stayed in room number one which... More

We came as a couple of adults as our son was away so we were keen to enjoy the Duke as the first class music venue that it is. We were not disappointed with Whitstable which has to be on of my new favourite places in the world but the Duke provided an excellent base in the centre of town.... More

This was our 2nd visit to the Duke of Cumberland and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Good location - especially handy as we were eating at Wheelers. A nice room and once again a fabulous breakfast.

Overall enjoyed our one night stay at the Duke, the common areas are clean and interesting (great artwork), the room was good and the breakfast was excellent. It is also in a central location so position is good (you can walk to everything you need to see if you want to get a sense of the town and take in... More

We stayed in one of the large rooms, light and airy with the biggest TV I've ever seen. Fairly clean with a slightly shabby feel. It was a Saturday night and so the drinkers below were to be expected, didn't cause us much of a problem though. The breakfast next morning was fantastic, especially the vegetarian option which was made... More

We stayed at the Duke for the weekend, arriving Friday evening. The staff were all very welcoming. We had two large room overlooking the High St. Both rooms were large airy, very clean, with everything we needed. We loved the quirky little extras like the retro games and books, brought back some childhood memories.although didn't have time to play any,... More

Stayed here a couple of times. Accommodation basic but lovely atmosphere and food is excellent. Can be a bit noisy from the pub below but that is to be expected. Restaurant at the back is great - lovely staff and novel way of serving food. No menu but you are given 4-5 dishes to choose a selection from. Same with... More

The quality of service depends on different members of staff ! first day of our stay we were shocked with the behaviour of the cook , after calmly mentioning to the waitress that I didn't trust the look of one egg ( it is always possible in any restaurant that something could be off , that happens and that isn't...

Had a great time at this pub over the Easter weekend in a great location minutes from the beach & on the High Street. The pub is very popular for live music & has a great atmosphere. Staff were extremely friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble. As it was such a busy weekend our room was not quite... More

I stayed here with my partner for a weekend getaway. The building is in a great location, room was rather shabby and run down. The most disappointing thing I found was the attitude of the staff. I was ignored at the bar and when I finally was served it was by rude, arrogant bar staff. I would not stay here... More
