I just love the Hotel. A room with a great view and a small hotel delight with the terrific Art Deco overtones. Breakfast was terrific and the fish in the restaurant as fresh as you would expect. I could have stayed a week rather than a night.

My partner booked this hotel for a two night stay, as a midweek break. We absolutely loved it! Check in was friendly and efficient, our room, the deluxe, was absolutely outstanding. Clean, fresh decor, a fabulous sea view, with balcony equipped with deck chairs and a bistro set. Unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of these due to the weather, but... More

We recently attended a family party in Whistable, our first visit to this area of the East Coast. We were recommended to stay at the Hotel Continental and it was a good choice. The attractive hotel has a plain simple style but plenty of charm and character. In a fabulous position overlooking the sea our premium bedroom had binoculars for... More

Had read slightly mixed reviews about the hotel, but having visited, I really can't understand why ? We (four friends) stayed in the newly refurbished Family Room which was fantastic - more a suite of rooms than a room, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. Great location, helpful, friendly staff, a good breakfast and good value for money. What more... More

Not sure why most of the reviews are on the restaurant side of the business. After all, it is Hotel Continental, a warm, cozy place to stay in spring, when temps are still on the cooler side in England. Granted the hotel is a little dated but the sheets were clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a room... More

Perfect location on the sea front, a 10 minute walk from the centre of Whitstable. Lovely costal walks with tea and coffee facilities. Great harbour walk with hut sellers. Great weekend just spent relaxing eating and enjoying the great British coast. Small issue with our room, not as booked, however hotel staff rectified our issue. Would return as perfect location....

I booked a non seaview double room with terrace on the hotel website. The pictures showed quite a modern room with doors that opened on its own terrace and a nice bathroom for £90 a night. Upon arrival it was a little confusing where the hotel car park was but we parked at the front of the hotel which is... More

hi Rm 6 and 8 are small and are advertised as such they have a standard double bed and a balcony but they have recently been refurbished and are cute.. We have been refurbing the rooms slowly and properly for over a year - we are a family business so are not able and do not wish to do a... More

My husband and I stayed one night in this lovely beachfront hotel and were not disappointed. The hotel is situated an easy 5 minute walk from the town centre with ample free parking. We booked a luxury sea view room and we were more than happy with it. The room had a lovely sea facing balcony, comfortable bed and modern... More

I booked this hotel for a night during April. I choose cheapest room on offer (£65) which did not promise the view or a kettle. I was really surprised when we got a room on a top floor facing the sea (and a kettle). Room was cozy and clean. Definitely worth the money. Breakfast was served in the restaurant downstairs...

My partner and I stayed here in early April whilst visiting friends in the area. We chose a refurbished room without sea view - we live right on the coast anyway so weren't that fussed about paying to look at the sea. Our room was on the side of the hotel and actually did have a not bad view -... More

hi Thanks for the comprehensive review! We have put in a lot of extra soundproofing but it is still intrinsically an old building, Room 2 where you stayed is one of the first rooms you come to so has more traffic but as you say is good value as it does have a slight sea view -please call reception for...
