This is my third birthday weekend stay here and can't see why there won't be a fourth. Lovely clean rooms with beautiful sea view in a quiet location and yet easy walking distance into the hustle and bustle of Whitstable with its many eateries and pubs/bars. Great breakfast in the morning too!

Went to the restaurant for my husbands birthday meal. The steak was amazing beautifully cooked. The staff lovely they don't keep coming up to you but are still aware of your needs.

I was more than surprised when I saw how beautifully the room was decorated and the view from the room on the sea is magical. The hotel is in walking distance to Whitstable along the beach no less. Do I need to say more?

This lovely seaside hotel sits overlooking the Kent coast. The views and sunsets are fantastic and the great shops and restaurants of Whitstable are a short stroll away. The decor throughout is tasteful and modern. Our room was quite comfortable with the exception that it needed much better lighting, especially in the area of the dressing table. Also for us... More

only went in for a bar meal [food not bad] but it was like Battersea dogs home . Not only were there lots of dogs but one owner even admitted that her dogs stank. Maybe the management does not know many locals do not use the hotel because of the DOGS

Rare to find somewhere as nice as this who could offer a Friday night night only booking (which is all you really would need in Whitstable). Very friendly staff and delicious breakfast, menu looked great although we ate in town. Just the right distance from the town to be away from the noise, but the hotel is perched right on... More

Room was lovely however not sure quite worth the money however re location and other areas of the hotel make up for this. Lovely... More
