4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here with coach trip. Hotel has a wonderful setting next to the shingle beach. Slight disappointment to see work being carried out right outside the hotel entrance, although this didn't really impact on us. We had requested a high floor room, which turned out not to have been refurbished, unlike the first 2 floors. The furniture was ancient &... More

Myself and 5 family/friends spent the weekend here for a ladies spa getaway. The hotel was facing a building site on one side and the sea facing room had lovely views of the Hythe beach. It's worth checking with the hotel that there aren't any building works happening during your trip. Also, best to ask if there are sea facing... More

Great time spent in the hotel with friends for a birthday weekend - lovely refurbished family room, great meal and drinks in a private dining room, champagne and main bar. Staff were very helpful. Renovations look great.

We were sorry to see the gardens disappearing to housing but undestand that to renovate the hotel is expensive and it is a necessary think to do. We stayed in one of the renovated rooms which was ok but very small for a superior double (room 111). If we were staying more than one night I would have requested a... More

Spent 2 nights, first day for a conference which went perfectly. The conference room was clean, huge and we were well looked after. We had dinner in the restaurant and I would highly recommend it, it was gorgeous. The second night was with friends. We had dinner at the Indian restaurant and the food was awesome.

Although only 20 miles from home, we had a party in Hythe and didn't want to drive home afterwards so booked a Superior Room for the night. The Reception and booking in were no problem at all whilst the room was excellent with a really comfortable bed and well appointed and spotlessly clean bathroom. The problem was the next morning....

The Champagne Bar at this hotel opened last week and we thought we would try with friends. The bar is furnished to a high standard and is very modern. It's not easy to find though. The hotel does not have the bar listed on its signs. However the waiter was friendly and helpful. Good range of champagnes and cocktails. The... More

We stayed for two nights in a recently renovated family suite. The suite was wonderfully spacious, nicely decorated and the beds very comfortable. However, what made it even better were the staff who were exceptional. They are all incredibly polite and courteous, but also very helpful and friendly, they are a credit to the hotel.
