I wanted a pub meal on a Sunday night, but all the nearby places had shut down due to a big roast lunch. So this place, which is actually in Tankerton close to Whitstable, got the nod. Being a vegetarian I too often have a choice of risotto or pasta and cheese. The Marine had two main course choices that... More

Stayed here a couple of times, it is a very nice hotel, maybe a little pricey for a 3 star? But is really nice so will come back... Lovely decor, friendly helpful staff, food (lunch, dinner & breakfast) really good. Good location. Only complaints are we were booked in room with a baby & given a room with no bath,... More

My husband and I came down from London for the weekend. Obviously we weren't expecting London standard but we were expecting some sort of standard! The management could do with re training as they seem to have forgotten the most important roles of management. We will not be returning to the Marine Hotel or any other SHEPHEARD NEAME hotel. To...

Brilliant hotel, room had a balcony and amazing sea view. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Food was also excellent and staff were lovely especially Harry in the Orangery. Would highly recommend to anyone heading to Whitstable (try the afternoon tea.

I visited the Marine some years ago when we had a really great night out but the place was a bit tired, so it came as a surprise to find they have revamped it into a really nice quality venue for an evening out with friends. The staff were friendly and efficient and the drinks were reasonably priced.

Just a three night mini break. Found the hotel on line and really liked the reviews. Difficult to imagine a better or more helpful group of people as the staff were during our stay. The room overlooking the beach was really well presented, clean and equipped with all the the bits and pieces that all of us have come to... More

Stopped here for a night mid-July. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the beachfront - it was stunning. Lovely comfy bed, spotlessly clean room and loads of space. Bar, restaurant were excellent too - local food and beers were all quality and very tasty. Thoroughly relaxing visit - highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This hotel has a lovely sea view to the front of the property. It is owned by Shepherd Neame a local brewery consequently there is a good selection of ales and wines. The rooms are comfortable with very reasonable tarrifs. The staff cannot do enough for you and are very attentive. I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely hotel.

the thing that sticks out in my mind about last weekend was the wonderful sunset we watched from the lounge on Sunday. the location is superb. The hotel was OK. The kitchen closes on Sunday in the afternoon, so we had to go into Whitstable for an evening meal. Abacus taxis charged us £3.00 to £3.30 for trips into town... More
