Reading some of the other reviews I really wondered what they expected from converted net drying huts. We also stayed in hut 5, partially because it has recently had a small kitchenette fitted. The hut has been nicely converted, and supposedly is designed to accommodate 2x adults and 2x children (sofa bed). The really steep stairs are not for the faint-hearted - or I suspect for children. The place is bijou - bedroom, shower, both fine. Downstairs, the kitchenette is equip with a kettle, toaster, combination oven (very) small fridge and sink. Perfectly adequate for small meals - as breakfast is included that is not a problem. You are provided with just two plates, knifes, forks, cups. So not sure how the kids would eat. No soup/desert bowls. And only one small saucepan and a frying pan. A larger saucepan would be useful for pasta etc.
Good size flat-screen TV's both upstairs and down - although if you argue about what to watch, there is only one remote between them.
We were staying in late October, and quite mild, but the heating seems adequate, in fact we turned it off. Ventilation may be a bit of a problem and in the summer I suspect a fan would be useful.
The water supply tastes very strange - making tea/coffee almost undrinkable. Easily solved by taking a supply of cheap mineral water.
Our experience of the hotel staff was great - all really friendly, courteous and efficient. The huts are treated as hotel rooms, so maid makeover service is there if required. Breakfast at the hotel is part of the deal, and is what one would expect of a buffet out of season.
We would happily visit again, but would take a largish saucepan, mineral water, and something in which to make the coffee.
The picture by the way does not show the hut! Simply to illustrate that we did not see much of Whitstable as it was blanketed in fog for two days!

Thanks for your comments, the stairs are quite steep in some of the huts but there are some that have a normal staircase just ask when you book. The huts with a kitchen should have a large saucepan and enough cutlery and bowls etc for a family of four and i shall recheck the inventory of the huts to make sure all is present. Im glad you had a nice time and look forward to seeing you visit us again soon.
