Faaaantastic hotel. I stayed here only one night, but the room that we had (No.1) was a smashing room with lovely decor and a fab bathroom. Whitstable is a lovely town for foodies, and an interesting place to spend time. It has some great oysters that are local only to the area - they are very nice indeed. Whilst the... More

My ladies what lunch day was at The Marine this week. Always use here for coffee, but up until yesterday never sampled the food. Our waitress was a very friendly helpful young girl, who took our orders & dispatched them promptly. The drinks waiter was not quite as efficient though, two out of the three drinks arrived so i sat... More

We stayed at the Marine at the end of a European river cruise whilst catching up with family in the UK. Having stayed at a few 4-5 star hotels in Europe we didn't know what to expect from the Marine, although we had read some positive stuff. Well the Marine Team can be very proud of themselves. We stayed in... More

Stayed here for one night so we could dine at The Sportsman in Seasalter ( see separate review - divine!) and was very impressed with the hotel. Room decor fantastic - we had a balcony room overlooking the sea. Great bathroom and comfy bed. Breakfast best we've had in a "normal" hotel, although did have to wait (wedding party stayed... More

My wife and I over-nighted here whilst on a trip down memory lane and were pleasantly suprised. Not expecting too much from this supposedly 2 star accommodation we were thoroughly surprised at how friendly and welcoming all the staff were, how good the food was and how nice nice and clean the hotel and rooms were kept. Would definitely recommend... More

Its a very comfy hotel, the decor of the rooms is very good and they were exceptionally clean. A great location too, only a 10... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Oct. in a small double room on the 2nd floor. The hotel itself is lovely, the staff are generally really friendly & helpful. The downstairs bar is a great place to relax, with a firer, big cosy armchairs and views out to sea. Perfect. Our room was fine, but it was cold, and when we... More
