The room was lovely - bright and clean however the mattress requires to be replaced. Unfortunately when in my room I could hear every movement made by the occupants of the neighbouring room including them using the bathroom - failed to get a full nights sleep. Dinner in the restaurant was of a very poor standard however it was surpassed... More

I visit weekly for a drink or a meal with friends. Also for business meetings. Pleasant, friendly setting. Reasonably priced food and drink. It is so good to know you can meet up at the Marine and have consistently good service and a good atmosphere.

This is the 2nd time our whole family has stayed for a weekend at The Marine Hotel and we loved it just as much this time as last time! We are scattered all over the country, in Wales, Essex, Norfolk and Canterbury and have to plan carefully for big family gatherings. Last May 2014 we celebrated our Mum's 70th birthday... More

I used to come here until recently to get the best sirloin steak bar meal in town. They appear to have stopped doing it, oh no! They also did the best car very ever on a Sunday but that is long gone too :-(

This Hotel is so popular that when we tried to book a room weeks ago it was fully booked, so we booked a table in their restaurant and had a fabulous meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. This hotel sits right on the sea front, check it out, a real gem in Kent.

Local people tell me this hotel enjoyed considerable investment in 2013 and the result is pleasing. The choice of carpet colour is a little odd in places, but generally the building feels traditional with modern light blues and brown that are in sympathy with a hotel overlooking the sea. My wife and I both have special dietary needs and we... More

We have just enjoyed an excellent 4 night break at The Marine Hotel. I booked a sea view room as recommended by other TA reviewers and we were not disappointed. The view over the sea is lovely but this is not the sunny side of the hotel so room balconies are in the shade all day. There is some noise... More

We were a party of 8 staying in this lovely hotel for my husbands 50th birthday celebrations. Food was great, location was great with sea views... The only drawback was if you want a drink in the bar area after 11 your out of luck they banish you to your room like a naughty child. Make sure you find somewhere... More

Second time we have stayed at the Marine, on this occasion we chose the standard double (last time we went for larger room with balcony) quite surprised at how large the room and bathroom are considering it was there standard - certainly not disappointed. Great place if your visiting whitstable and surrounding area. Ideal location, nice and peaceful. Hotel has... More

Stayed in the Marine Hotel on a weekend away to Whitstable. Although the hotel is not in Whitstable itself (about a 15 min lazy stroll away on the beachfront), it is in a stunning location and well worth it. The hotel is clean, the rooms spacious, modern and very comfortable plus the sea view from the balcony is amazing. We... More
