From our very first telephone contact every member of staff was exceptionally friendly, efficient and helpful. I phoned to ask for a room with bath and sheets and blankets, if possible. Fussy I know, but that is exactly what we were promised and what we got. The bedroom was comfortable, the bed excellent and the bath enormous. Finally, the food,... More

This was a great hotel, set a little outside of town but a lovely 15 minute walk along the beach to Whitstable town. Our room was spot on (could potentially do with a new lick of paint, looked a bit sad in some areas of the room), but lovely sea view, great breakfast and helpful staff. We visited on a... More

Very relaxing and fits in perfectly on the Tankerton beachfront. Visitor should be aware it is... More

I was whisked away to the marine hotel as a present and it didn't disappoint! From check in to checkout all staff are fab friendly and care. The room was immaculate (family room 25) we had such a lovely time we are booking a return even though we only live 20 minutes away! Highly recommend :-)

Booked this hotel on its high price and it seemed wonderful and we wanted a treat. Sadly we were caught up in a Valentines Day situation, although we stayed on 13th February. The room was Ok but never worth £135, the special Valentines Rate. The real disappointment was the food. We booked in anticipation of being offered their normal a... More

This is a fantastic hotel. Modern inside, clean and very comfortable. I stay on a lot of different hotels in the South East, and this stands out for comfort and value for money. The position is brilliant and the restaurant is great. Highly recommend.

We didn't stay here, but stopped here for lunch whilst out for a walk along the seafront. Food was tasty and get ours portion sizes! Recommend the fish pie or the root vegetable burger. Service was also attentive and friendly. Will return!
