“Very accomodating staff and great location”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Stayed for two nights in superior double with hubby and dog arranged to have late check in staff very helpful and welcoming to our little dog. Room had great view nicely refurbished but a little noisy at times from bar. Very good breakfast with great staff, dinner although very reasonably priced was a little disappointing, it did not really match the quality of the view and the staff. This would not put me off staying here again this is a great hotel

The hotel has been recently refurbished and I must say in looks very nice. The last time we stayed, some of the rooms were up graded and now the rest of the hotel and been completely done. We booked late, so the rate was higher than I wanted to pay, but still the room was very nice and the whole place has a good feel about.

After being recommended the sirloin steak by a very well presented member of staff I have to say I was very happy with my choice. The food arrived at our table prompt. The steak was cooked to perfection and the onion rings looked homemade. The service was what I expected.....second to none. I will be telling my friends. Cant wait to return. Well done shepherd neame, and lets not forget the staff. Thank you for a great time.

Room Tip: Seaview with balcony are hard to beat

We stayed here recently while attending a wedding in Canterbury.
The location is amazing, right on the sea front.

We arrived just before they finished serving food after a long journey and were checked in quickly and directed to the bar to order before the kitchen closed. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious.

Our 3rd floor room was spacious and had a gorgeous view over the seafront. The room and bathroom were beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless.
The hotel has recently been refurbished and it shows in every detail. It has been well thought out and really well done.

The breakfasts were great. Plenty of choice and again the food was delicious and served by warm and friendly staff.

We honestly can't think of anything negative, we had a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

thanks for a great stay
