Our booking here was a present of a one night stay. Lovely friendly, helpful staff. Hotel clean, tidy and welcoming. Our room had a sea view and a veranda. Lovely on one of the hottest days of the year. Close enough to walk into town of Whitstable and all it has to offer. our breakfast on checkout day was to... More

There's no getting away from it - the whole of the sea front at Whitstable smells of shellfish on a hot day. Probably has done for centuries, and it's reassuring that the town is still getting on with earning its living independently of the tourist trade. There are many compensations - among them being the beautifully situated Hotel Continental, which... More

As a party of 4 we had booked 2 standard non-seaview double rooms. Nothing could have prepared us for the tiny space that awaited us! The bed was a double (just) with just about enough space to walk around it (only one person at a time; it would be impossible for 2 people to pass each other). There wasn't enough... More

I stayed here for 1 night while on business. The hotel was undergoing improvements at the time and I was in a room that had not been refurbished yet. Despite this, it was clean and comfortable if not a bit tired but knowing this is due to be refurbished like other rooms, this can be overlooked. The whole hotel has... More

My husband brought me to Whitstable for a surprise anniversary break. What a treat! The weather was perfect and the Hotel Continental provides a quiet, hassle free stay in a perfect location, right in front of the sea. The hotel is being refurbished and is clean if basic. Our room, on the hotel front over looked the sea and was... More

A lovely hotel, right on the sea front. Recently renovated bedrooms, very nice. Friendly helpful staff and good buffet breakfast in the morning. The location is key to this hotel and I can't wait to go back

Hotel is right on the beach, all that the town has to offer is near too. Friendly receptions do other staff too. Plenty of choice at breakfast time. Loved our sea view room with a balcony. Left the doors wide open all night to hear the waves.
