Great boutique hotel with fab sea views .Perfect location for a quiet romantic break and exploring Whitstable and Canterbury. Food in the restaurant was great ! and the service was superb . All the hotel team were really friendly... More

We stayed at the hotel last summer for a wedding: te hotel has great décor, good selection of food and wonderful views. I must say however that my favourite part was the sleep - one of the best mattresses I've ever slept on!

surprisingly great value for money. Spacious bedroom and very large bedroom. Simply and nicely decorated. Good breakfast. Nice bar. God parking. Only let down is reception, but it is not a major criticism. The staff member on reception has to answer telephone calls coming into the hotel and on my check in and check out this caused significant delays to... More

This was a special trip for a friend’s 50th. Our room was lovely. Clean, modern and had the amenities you would expect. The staff were very friendly and helpful, although I would say it would have been useful to be able to have a slightly more flexible check in arrangement. We had been travelling for some time and it was... More

My and my partner stayed as a birthday surprise, booked a sea view room with balcony, the room was well decorated and a great size. Bar was well stocked (my partner especially enjoyed the local ale) the only downside side was dinner in the bar, both of our meals were tasteless and lacking the expected wow factor, nobody came to...

On Tuesday this week, my sister (and her now husband) held their wedding ceremony and reception at this hotel earlier and it was unforgettable. From the moment we as guests arrived, we were treated with the very best customer service. My sister and her partner were fashionably late due to the bride forgetting her bouquet and having to go all... More

The Marine might have it's flaws and I'd agree with some of the issues raised in previous reviews. However we have been here several times and while yes on occasion the service has been a touch wanting, the hotel has always had its heart in the right place. I can pay The Marine no bigger compliment in that we had... More

My first visit to Whitstable and I'm so glad we chose to stay at The Marine Hotel. Our train arrived early and the staff were very attentive in keeping our luggage safe as we popped to the harbour as we waited for our room to be ready. It did not matter that our room did not have sea views because... More

Staff were friendly, hotel was beautiful & location was fab with car park too. Meat platter to share was disappointing as was the bedroom, very basic and the bathroom could've done with a lick of paint as clearly it'd been plastered recently, was a little dusty too. £130 is a lot of dosh for this room I'm afraid to say...
