Premier Inn Whitstable Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Whitstable
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a typical Premier Inn with `137 rooms. IT is on the main road and not close to Whistable at all - there is a beefeeter restaurant on the grounds - but that is it - nothing else within walking distance if you want to eat out etc. The hotel is well equipped, clean and has most that a chain of motel style hotels should have. It was easy to regulate the temperature of the room from the wall mounted keyboard (it was cold when I arrived and quickly warmed up) - there is a TV showing only sky free channels as expected, coffee/tea maker and plenty of room - the bed side lights are good and turn on and off independently. You can get 30mins free WiFi, (but it is not very fast) and then you have to pay.
The cost for one night (single) was £107.00 which I find very expensive compared to Travelodge or the other competitors - there are other much cheaper hotels in the area that are close to the restaurants and amenities of Whistable. - There are also many B&Bs in the area some with rave reviews - I tried two but they were fully booked. One criticism that I have of tripadvisor is that the telephone numbers of the B&Bs or hotels are not listed so it is impossible to contact them conveniently. So, if you are

This hotel is typical of Premier Inns being clean and well maintained with comfy beds and good facilities in the rooms. The rearward rooms suffer from traffic noise so ask for one overlooking the car park. The location is good if you have a car but it is at the top of the only hill in Whitstable so the mile and a half walk down into town is countered by the climb back up to the hotel. The car park is adequate for the number of rooms but the entrance and exit is on a busy road and close to a roundabout so can be tricky in busy traffic times.

Room Tip: Pick a room overlooking the car park, from the second floor you can even see the sea, in the distanc...

Perfectly located for both Whitstable & Canterbury. Very clean & tidy rooms. Excellent staff on reception. Decent breakfast at restaurant next door. Plenty of car parking space. Thoroughly Recommended.

Very useful position for visiting Whilstable - only a short taxi ride if you are going out for a meal/drink. Ask for a room overlooking the car park as it will be the quietest - the other side is on the busy A299. If you are 2 in a room (or more) ask for the extra hand towels as they now have a policy of only 1 per room (a little strange).

On booking I regarded this as 'just another hotel' but they have really got their act together and delivered here. The rooms are comfortable well equipped and very quiet. Put a different label on the hotel and it would still be regarded as very good: an excellent bed; good shower and sufficent storage. This is good value and very friendly.
Thank you

Very good standard hotel and usual quality service from premier inn. Only slight criticism would be the location which is a fair way out of Whitstable. There is a beefeater next door but if you don't want to use this there is nothing else in easy walking distance.

Easy to find, very efficient service, comfortable room for whole family and 30mins free WiFi and walk next door for good breakfast. Quality is much better than Travelodge in Whitstable which is difficult to find as well but is more expensive unless booked well in advance.
