Having visited this hotel some years ago was pleased to see a refurbishment had transformed it into a fashionable and comfortable hotel. We had a sea view room, which being right on the cliff at Tanketon (a hearty walk along the beach from Whitstable) was wonderful if a bit gloomy on this occasion, due to torrential rain. Plenty of lounge/bar/cafe... More

We stayed here for one night, the room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good, would stay again if in the area. It is a 15-20 minute pleasant walk into whitstable itself, which is very worthy of a day visit. We had dinner at Wheelers which was an experience with exceptionally good food.

The Marine is actually in Tankerton, a quieter area of Whitstable about 15 minutes walk to the harbour. Excellent hotel. Will definitely return. Great staff, lovely rooms and worth paying for the seaview which is unusual for us. Special mention for bartender Leon who made a mean Gin and Elderflower spritzer. Great place! Pipes can be quite noisy but the... More

Stayed here after doing a bit of research on places to stay in Whitstable and really wasn't disappointed. It's got a great location on top of a hilly road overlooking the bay. It's clean, tastefully decorated, airy and full of natural light. Room was beautiful and spacious, particularly compared to hotels at a similar price bracket that I've frequented elsewhere.... More

I recently got married here. From the very beginning all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The wedding itself went without a hitch. Everything was beautifully presented and Jess and her team were all exceptional in making sure it really was the most perfect day for us. The hotel itself is lovely and well decorated and the rooms are... More

The Marine has a wonderful position overlooking the sea at Tankerton. It is a short drive (5mins/under £4) to the centre of Whitstable - or a 15/20 minute walk. My only comment would be the lack of information about parking - there is a car park at the back of the hotel, which is not very well sign-posted. It was... More

I have had many company lunches at this hotel and since its upgrade its become a really smart place - wonderful location - right opposite the sea and good selection of food. Staff are attentive and very friendly and is a good place for weddings etc. Its my local too for a drink!
