You'd think that with a Full English Breakfast on a balcony overlooking the sea, nothing could go wrong. Well it did. The Full English Breakfast itself was delicious, especially the sausage but our toast was only brought out after the meal despite us reminding them about it. We ordered a pot of tea and again had to remind them about... More

We booked this hotel for one night and we will be delighted to return in the foreseeable future. The hotel itself overlooks the sea and is extremely clean and tastefully decorated.Breakfast was tasty and you are offered both a continental buffet and a hot meal. We will be back!

We love Whitstable, but we struggled to find many hotels in the town. Fortunately this one was very good, but due to the relative shortage the two of us had to book into a very large family room. The hotel is well decorated and right on the seafront. The room was nice and the bar area looked OK - although... More

An excellent Hotel on Tankerton seafront overlooking the sea. We had a lovely room with a balcony, well appointed modern rooms, clean, nice amenities and well thought out. Only gripe was internet was slow but the staff responded in a very professional and prompt manner. Nice lounge and bar, al fresco sundowners a must. Will return.

Yet another visit to the Marine. Blessed by wonderful weather this time so luckily had a Seaview room. As usual, the staff are welcoming and very helpful. The hotel was very busy but the staff coped well. Dined in the bar on one night and had locally caught fish and chips washed down with the beer brewed by the hotel... More

When we booked we asked for an extra bed for a toddler and gave card details. We were phoned twice more to ask for card details, and visited to make sure they had them. My wife was unsure about our booking and rang to confirm. She was told the extra bed would be an additional £10 more. We put this... More
