Fabulous. I have waited 9 years for a decent hotel to open in Whitstable. This is it. Accommodation fantastic, sea view, lovely common areas restaurant, bar etc. Lovely staff and parking at the rear. Breakfast very good and just had a lovely, warm, clean and welcoming atmosphere.

We booked in here for a night on our way back from Dover and were very impressed. A lovely hotel, very helpful friendly staff; we had arrived too early to check in, but they let us leave the car in the car park while we walked along the front into Whitstable to build up an appetite for lunch! We returned... More

The Marine at Tankerton, Whitstable has been well refurbished and the rooms are modern, chic and comfortable...go for a sea view, the hotel sits right by the pebble beach. When checking in it's great to be offered a little flask of fresh milk for your room; NOT good to be ordered to pay for the room in advance, before even... More

Within easy walking distance of Whitstable town centre, castle and harbour or if you want a longer stroll its about 4 miles along the coastline to Herne Bay. The hotel itself was excellent, our room was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. There are great sea views across Tankerton Slopes from the restaurant. We didn't take dinner there but breakfast... More

Its been a few years since our last visit to The Marine and the refurbishment is wonderful. Our rooms were well appointed and the beds very comfortable. The issue with The Marine is the staff, one of the woman on reception was straight out of Fawlty Towers central casting! There were some good ones, the bar ladies were very nice.... More

My wife and I spent one night here on the way to visit friends in Kent. It was our tenth anniversary celebration andthe first time I'd visited Whitstable for many years. The Marine, owned by Shepherd Name Brewery, has recently undergone major refurbishment and the rooms are now light, airy and modern while retaining a cosy, classic feel to them.... More

The hotel occupies an excellent position just to the east of Whitstable. We booked at short notice and got a rate that made this very good value. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished; the bed comfortable. An excellent dinner in the restaurant - some real cooking going on, the pork belly was superb. What made the stay was... More

We held a family reunion at the hotel over 2 days. In all we had 40 or so family members visit for the main function and 20 plus stayed for 1 to 2 nights. The rooms were all excellently appointed and spotlessly clean. They were spacious, well designed/equiped and a real pleasure to stay in. The food in both the... More

We stayed here for our first weekend away with our puppy and were extremely impressed with the service we received. The staff couldn't do enough to help us and even gave some extra sausages for our puppy. Our room was right at the top as we had the dog so there was a bit of lugging to do to get... More

Had a rare opportunity for a night away to celebrate my birthday, and as it was a special occasion we looked for a nice place to eat and were recommended a popular place place at Seasalter... I will admit to knowing the General Manager of The Marine which is why we chose it, but never the less this is a... More
