“Fantastic place to stay, shame about the bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This is our third stay in the fisherman's huts, each time in a different hut. The location is fantastic and despite the cold and wind, you always feel cosy. Breakfast at the hotel is fine. The Forge is brilliant to have on your doorstep, doughnuts, oysters, beer!
The only pity was the upstairs double bed in hut two which is really uncomfortable. Lots of springs, not a lot of sleep! We'll be back again though!!

Stayed December 2013

We stayed in hut 1 on the 29th Dec 2013, it was very clean, warm and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in.
Even though the room is on a bed and breakfast basis, I really liked that wine, champagne glasses were in the room and deck chairs were available (not that we needed them in December).
The breakfast is available at the Hotel Continental which is about half a mile away.
I would suggest if you are a light sleeper, take some ear plugs as it can be noisy with the boats and cars driving on the gravel paths which surround the huts.

great that you enjoyed your stay in hut 1. If you want we can always put wine or champagne in the room for your arrival. The quieter huts are probably 14,11,10 8 and 9 but the car parking may not directly be in front of the hut then.
thanks james

Stayed in hut 11 between Christmas and New Year.

The hut was lovely - characterful, toasty warm, and spotlessly clean.

The huts are on the sea wall, down a quiet side street but only 1 minute's walk from pubs, restaurants, and shops

Hut 11 has a full kitchen which we used to warm up food we had bought. The kitchen is modern but there are some puzzling ommissions in the equipment. No backing trays / anything else to use in the oven. No bowls / containers to use in the microwave. And only 2 sets of cutlery for a hut that is advertised as suitable for 4. Odd.

Other than that, it was great. PIty the weather was so rubbish but we felt all warm and snug in our little hut

We had a fab time and were impressed with the huts, they were clean and warm. Breakfast was good and thank you James for the book. A very enjoyable couple of days. We stayed in hut 1 which was large and stylish, my parents said the bathroom was the best they had ever had on holiday. We stayed in hut 10, amazing views from upstairs bedroom. I recommend

Hut 14 in the Continental Hotel's converted fisherman's hut option was far and away better than I ever expected. Not everything was perfect or like Canada, but this is a converted fisherman's hut on the coast in England.
Ceiling height was a bit challenging for me at 6 feet, particularly in the stair well.
We stayed one night in November with the wind blowing and the sea running to about 5 foot waves. My wife and I were snug in the double bed with a great heater and a gorgeous view of the ocean. In addition Hut 14 does not have WiFi or a telephone since the phone company hasn't been round to the newest hut yet. As a communications addict, my plea is that you do not install such devices. It could ruin a great evening.
In the morning, the weather had calmed and the included full English breakfast was great way to end a morning walk to the restaraunt. We did not have any dietary issues, but the staff are willing to go the extra mile if you let them know what you need.
The only suggestion I could make is that a bedside table with a lamp on it would have been a nice addition since getting out of bed to turn the wall switch proved to be a bit invigorating since I had the heat turned down on that cool November night.
One other point North Americans should be aware of is that face cloths are not always part of the bathroom linens provided. We have been traveling with our own for years.
This fisherman's hut rental is one we are going to use again and we have no qualms about recommending it.

Thanks for the review. If you ask when booking reception will be glad to inform you which huts are suitable for the taller customers. Please be aware that hut 14 is still at the moment without wifi as we are having issues getting a new phone line installed. Bedside lamp now installed.

Warm welcome from staff at the hotel on booking in and clear instructions to the huts. We had a lovely couple of nights in hut 8. It was brilliant that our 2 dogs could come too. Lovely huts, clean tidy, huge comfortable bed. The boats chinking aid restful sleep. The view is fantastic and you can't get any closer to the beach.
We loved the walk to breakfast takes about 10 mins depending if you are sidetracked by watching the harbour sights. The dogs can come for breakfast too as long as you sit in the bar. Scrambled eggs cooked fresh on request. The breakfast staff were all warm and friendly. On the walk home past the little harbour village shops opening up and unexpectedly achieved Christmas shopping just from walking for breakfast. H
Free wife and iPod Dock. Lots of coffee sachets, 3types of tea bags and hot chocolate. The corkscrew was welcome.
Just a couple of niggles, chipped mugs and plates from our takeaway not taken away or washed as no facilities to wash them yourselves. We reported the wet floor in the bathroom.
Overall a lovely break in a fabulous location. We will be back.

thanks for taking the time to post a comment. Huts 6,7,8 and nine are dog friendly so ask for these if you want to bring your favourite pet. The mugs have been replaced! Hope to see you again

The location's fantastic with breathtaking sunsets and yummy lobster & chips at the Forge. The hut was lovely, if a bit tight for head space for my 6'2" partner. No bedside lights, although I read in an earlier review that this had been taken care of. The bath towels were tiny but got bigger on the last day and the maid skipped a visit on the second day. Breakfast was good and made us get out and have an early walk to the Hotel each morning. Weather was warm and sunny at the start, but as soon as the cold wind got up, the heating was on and we were really snug. Love Whitstable and its delightful Fisherman's Huts.

Room Tip: Not for the very tall or anyone with less than excellent mobility.
