This is certainly the best hotel we've stayed at in the Whitstable area, the room we had was lovely, a good size very clean, quiet and nicely decorated with a nice sea view. The communal areas are are also really nice with plenty of outside tables overlooking the sea and a nice bar/restaurant area. Breakfast was really good with a... More

My husband and I have just returned from a one night stay at The Marine Hotel, we wished it was longer and will definitely be back soon. Our room was worth the extra cost, we had a balcony overlooking the sea. We were able to sit outside and enjoy a drink on the terrace, all our fellow guests seemed pretty... More

Visiting Whitstable for a wedding and stayed two nights at the Marine. This is a very nice hotel in a great location. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Food and service is very good. We had a seaview room with a balcony which was nicely decorated. Couple of minor quibbles: the aircon gave out a loud rumble from time to time... More

I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Marine hotel, I would recommend anyone to stay here. Beautifully decorated hotel, with a lovely atmosphere. Lots of guests around,but still seemed a relaxed and tranquil environment. We stayed for 2 nights, in a beautifully decorated room, not over looking the sea, but this was not a problem. The... More

Only stayed for one night, but the hotel was lovely. The staff were very friendly, our room was clean, well decorated, with a tucked away window seat facing the sea. We were pleased with the location which was in a quiet area, just a short walk from the town. The included breakfast was delicious!

Short break over August bank holiday. Could not fault this hotel. From moment of arrival everything was superb - check-in, food/ service, room etc. Evening meals were particularly good. We had a first floor balcony room with great sea view. You can see the Maunsell Forts on the horizon. Would definitely return and recommend this to others.

We were visiting Whitstable for a friend's wedding and chose the Marine because of it's proximity to the church and reception venue and the fantastic sea front location. Despite the advertised 3pm check in, the hotel staff were very accommodating and we got the keys to our room just before 1pm (I would recommend calling the night before to request... More

We only stayed for one night..., wish it could've been at least two! I had a bad cold unfortunately so we were pretty much confined to our room. But what a room! What a view! Everything was beautifully presented and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed room service - it was wonderful watching the sun set while enjoying our meal on... More

We spent three days here and cannot speak too highly of the staff, who are led from the front by their manager Kate. It was great to see a real team doing their best to make their guests welcome. A most welcoming and comfortable hotel.

I first reviewed The Marine Hotel soon after its renovation, enthusing then about the stylish, sophisticated appearance of the hotel and the quality of food and service. Since its re-opening I have returned many times, most often for snacks, or a bar meal coffee or drinks, but I have now experienced the elegance of the dining room, both in its... More
