Lovely hotel overlooking the beach and sea and our room had a sea view so happy days. Nice sized clean room and comfy bed but bathroom was a little on the small size. Good freshly cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. If in the area would stay again.

Stayed here on a recommendation, great location opposite the sea and the Tankerton slopes nearby, nice beach walk. Friendly welcome reception. Fantastic large city view room, clean, comfy bed, lovely decor, beautiful roll top bath, water was not very hot. Went to Wheelers oyster bar for dinner, 20 min walk into Whitstable town. Wonderful cooked full english breakfast with choice... More

Stayed at the Marine Hotel because we wanted to visit the Wheelers Oyster Bar (that's worth a visit too). What a fantastic hotel! The room was large, clean, comfortable and well decorated and the bathroom was great with a roll top bath too. In the morning in the breakfast room we were greeted by a friendly waitress who served us... More

We stayed last Saturday night for one night in room 12 - double room overlooking the back of hotel. Great size room and large bathroom. Room very clean and we ate lunch in the bar area and had dinner in the restaurant which was very good. Breakfast amazing, so much choice. Not a cheap hotel at £120.00 per night with... More

Whitstable is lacking in hotels, so when the Marine was refurbished a few years back it was very welcome. We've visited a couple of times now and it's a good hotel. Rooms are tastefully furnished with comfortable beds, the staff are friendly, parking is easy and the (sea view) rooms and restaurant have a lovely outlook over the sea. On... More

Had a very pleasant stay at The Marine. Check-in was efficient and our room was large and comfortable, with a sea view. All was clean. We ate in the bar in the evening, rather than wander into town. I had oysters followed by fish pie. The food was all very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast in the morning was also... More

I only stayed for one night but what a great place, this is. I will definitely be staying again. I got there on a freezing cold day, checked and unpacked and then had lunch in the brasserie style place at the back of the hotel and it was both a lovely setting and a great meal. After that, a short... More

The Marine Hotel has a good location about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Whitstable on the seafront. The bedrooms and public rooms are well appointed with care having been taken over decoration. Once touches included porthole mirrors and vintage pieces adding to the seaside ambience. Bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped and the breakfast was very... More

With views of the rolling waves from the warm comfort of my spacious hotel room how could I fail to relax. The staff are friendly and polite, there is no additional charge for room service and the food is good! The stairs are many to the top floor but the views from the balcony of the luxury suites are worth... More

This impressive building is perched on top of a gentle slope to the sea at Tankerton, which has a few nice shops itself and is only 15-20minutes easy walking on the seafront to Whitstable (a similar distance to the train station), making it a perfect location. The decor is luxurious, the cooked breakfast was excellent, and the staff were very... More
