Brilliant stay, brilliant staff, would stay again..... Loved it, loved it. Great hotel, loved the coffee station, we had Sunday lunch in just one of the dining areas. This hotel offers lots of options and the staff were on hand to help. Only a small negative the rooms in the eves have a small window.

We stayed on Sunday night, the whole hotel had a lovely feel, staff were helpful and pleasant. Our room was lovely, think recently decorated, bed linen was new and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again and hopefully for longer next time.

Just had an amazing night stay here :) Enjoyed the lovely sea view & the air con in the room gave us a pleasant nights sleep. Evening meal and breakfast (eggs benedict - yum) were perfect. Couldn't fault the staff at all. Can't wait to come back for another restful break :)

We four stayed one night. The rooms were well appointed, clean and pleasant. We had a very comfortable large double bed. Breakfast was a disappointment as two of us ordered kippers, one was perfectly cooked and succulent, the other one was very dried out and had obviously been kept waiting in a hot place for a long time before being...

We were only able to stay one evening but wished it was longer!! Hotel offers good value for money - our superior twin room with balcony overlooking the sea was perfect. Breakfast was great with a wide variety of fruit, ham and cheese and a wide selection of cooked breakfasts. Lunch on the terrace was equally good. Little touches were... More

The decision to extend our stay in Whitstable (for a friend's birthday party on Saturday) to Friday night as well was a great move. We had walked past this hotel on previous day trips and I am so pleased that we remembered it. We had a sea view double with balcony from which we watched the world go by and... More

We stayed here for a night last weekend hoping for a quiet, romantic night away by the sea. We arrived to discover a wedding on, which we weren't told about when booking the room, or the evening meal. Our room was nice but the communal areas had loads of random items left everywhere, (fold up beds, piles of bedding, mops... More

Our particular room only had a shower but this was a very good size and easy to operate. It was beeter than jiust a small bath which in the space... More

Had a family meal here in late June sat outside admiring the sea view. Table top service dreadful but if you order at the bar the menu is varied and food quick to table. Perhaps a little overpriced but the food was good quality and the view worth it. Table waiting staff could do with better training in good customer... More
