Good bar and dining area with veranda seats facing the sea. Spacious and airy. Friendly staff. Food looked good at every table. Lovely to sip a beer and watch the sun go down. Try the Whitstable Stout, or the gravity IPA. The raspberry wheat beer might suit some, just not me...

We loved our room with a sea view and a nice touch with a pair of binoculors to use. Lovely decor & massive bed. All the staff were helpful and the breakfast was amazing, fresh & clean. We will return soon.

This is a hotel in transition. The new rooms are fantastic and the location is excellent. We found the staff indifferent to the number of issues we had. On check in we were told breakfast finished at 10. We stumbled down at 9.40 after being treated to some hammering (yes i know you are refurbishing) to be told the breakfast... More

Went with a little trepidation, but we found this to be a first rate hotel. Our renovated room was attractive, the bathroom was spacious, design was good and the bed comfortable. The two outstanding things were the friendly, helpful staff who knew the area well (specially Judy) and the outstanding breakfast-- a buffet but renewed frequently and well seasoned, and... More

I had read mixed reviews about this hotel. We stayed for one night over a weekend. Our room was one of the refurbished ones with a sea view. The room was a good size, the decor neutral and clean in whites and greys. We had a king size bed which was really comfy with lovely white cotton bed sheets. Bathroom... More

I only stayed one night here, but I would happily stay again for longer. I had read the rather mixed reviews for this hotel but decided to stay anyway as I was attending a wedding at a venue about 100 metres away. My room (10) was spotless, with a massive and comfortable bed, nice clean bathroom. The room also had... More

Had a wonderful two nights here. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with a balcony and seaview free of charge. The room was newly refurbished and very nicely done. Comfortable beds with good quality bedding and the towels were top quality. Lovely little extra touches like binoculars and gorgeous toiletries. The staff were all so friendly and could not... More
