We have tried the restaurant at Crescent Turner on several occasions but have not stayed in the hotel. The restaurant has a great location but the food and especially the service let it down badly. Sorry CrescentTurner we have tried to stay loyal but I'm afraid it has been a steady decline since opening and we have had our last... More

Attended a family wedding party last weekend, this hotel is perfect for a small intimate wedding and if you have lovely weather (as it was), the ceremony is outside under a pretty gazebo with guests seated overlooking a stunning view. 16 rooms, all filled with family and friends what more would you want and evening guests joining and staying locally....

Crescent Turner does it well: friendly staff, well appointed clean rooms, amazing views, and fabulous breakfast! We stayed for three evenings before moving on to Canterbury. Kudos to Sam Jeeves who went above and beyond and made our stay simply wonderful!

I cannot review the actual hotel considering that I haven't been able to stay here. My partner and I booked a room at this hotel to celebrate my birthday, 6 weeks in advance of arrival. 2 weeks out from my arrival I received a phone call from the hotel to say that they should never have accepted my online booking...

Quirky, completely British with a slight sense of eccentricity make the Crescent Turner the perfect place to stay! Booked as a 20th wedding anniversary treat, both myself and my husband had a wonderful night's stay. The greeting at reception was warm and sincere. Our room was immaculate, welcoming and very, very comfortable. They layout of the hotel is quite Alice... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Crescent Turner, Whitstable, is a stylish, 18-bedroom boutique hotel, set high up on Wraik Hill, overlooking the Kent coast. It has panoramic views of the sea and gorgeous surrounding countryside. Whitstable is a family-orientated but fashionable seaside town - famous for its beach huts, Oyster Festival and quaint harbour. There are quirky, independent shops and galleries, Whitstable Castle and an increasingly popular arts festival - the Whitstable Biennale. The Crescent Turner has individually designed bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, terrace area, gardens and - very importantly - its own Beach Hut on Whitstable beach, which guests may reserve. Bedrooms are spacious and light, many with sea views. Head down to Whitstable for a family break or a romantic getaway. You'll love the subtle decor of this newly remodelled boutique hotel - less than two hours from central London. Of course, the beach is a major feature in summer, but Whitstable is busy and interesting all-year round, and there are wonderful walks in the Kent countryside and other pretty towns and villages to visit while you are here.The Crescent Turner Hotel ... more   less
