We recently had a short two night stay in this lovely little hotel. The drive up to it is a bit daunting as you think you have gone wrong. It is modern with great views on a lovely decking, and the service is friendly, helpful,and nothing is too much for them. The rooms are modern, well furnished and with lovely... More

A few miles outside Whitstable therefore you need a car if you want to visit anything other than the hotel. However, for a delightful short break or a romantic night it is perfect. One of the nicest parts was the welcome provided by Samantha when I arrived. The interior design has had a great deal of thought and funding. The... More

A friend was staying at this hotel and we arranged to meet her for dinner in their restaurant. The dining room is stylish in a calm and muted atmosphere, the star of the show being the view of the North Sea through a glazed end wall. The staff were charming and the food delicious. Portions were of a good size... More

Stayed in room 5 as a couple - no children as the only room left. No discount like most other hotels if this is the case. Bed very comfy but ensuite very small and sink useless for washing as it was so small. A family room they say but no bath not sure what you would do if travelling with... More

Trust the directions they are spot on even though you think you are going to the middle of nowhere. The hotel has good points and some not so good. Let's start positively. As you drive up to the hotel the first impressions are good and get better when you enter. The hotel is very well decorated and very clean. All... More

many thanks for a lovely meal today. We came for Fathers' Day and not only was our food delicious but the staff were simply wonderful. They fussed our 3 year old perfectly and let us explore the grounds after our meal. It was our first visit there and absolutely not our last.

The hotel is in an idyllic setting, it just felt a little sad that the refurb replaced many of its original features with modern fittings which we felt took some of the charm away. PVC windows seem such a pity. The room was spotless and the quality of breakfast was excellent. The staff individually were good but despite their being... More

This newly renovated small hotel has wonderful views over the Thames estuary. The bedrooms are modern and comfortable. Every member of staff was friendly and very helpful. The food was good and well presented. We were a college reunion of 13. Everything was done to make our stay enjoyable with a separate room for dinner and a limited but delicious... More

I think this is an outstanding hotel, gorgeous, and worth every penny. Food, exquisite. Location, perfect. Staff, amazingly friendly.
