“Such a lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

We stayed for one night at the Marine Hotel in Whitstable and had a lovely experience. The room was exceptionally good, the bed comfortable with great pillows, and temperature perfect. All the staff were polite and helpful. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very good and of a reasonable price. We will certainly use again.

Room Tip: We had room 22 which was a double sea view room

What a great venue for a wedding reception! The room for the wedding breakfast/evening was lovely and there is another good large area to sit whilst the wedding breakfast was being cleared. The meal and service at the wedding breakfast was very good. The rooms were excellent and the breakfast really lovely. The only problem was the inefficiency regarding the booking and paying of rooms. This really must be addressed as it caused some distress at the end of a great stay.

I have stayed at the Marine Hotel on a number of occasions, and reviewed them here. It has been extensively renovated - and what a job they have done. The rooms are great, light and airy, the bathrooms clean with showers that give a good refreshing cleanse. The food in the restaurant was really good, and I mean REALLY good. Locally sourced food wherever possible, and the chef performs some interesting twists. The bar has a nice feel, and there is an area where you can order sandwiches an other food-all delights.

The staff are really great and professional and it was truly a pleasure to stay here.

Room Tip: A view across the water is better than the "town view", which is just a fancy name for the...

Great Hotel well located on the coast of whitstable Kent England,
a few minutes walk to the Castle it's tour worth.after drinking a nice cup of tea at the Castle,

The service is friendly and nice, Sunday is the delicious breakfast at 8 am, but if up to the plane to pick up breakfast can also previously

It's a real English hotel with a good atmosphere I think you will enjoy !

Room Tip: Rooms with views of the sea are fun, if at all possible it is recommended.

we took our son and his girlfriend there for his birthday and we will definitely visit again, we had balcony rooms that overlooked the sea, a bit chilly (but your can't not sit out for a short time) but lovely views. the staff were ALL so helpful and more importantly cheerful, nothing was too much trouble for anyone. we had a table next to the fire and although we had intended to eat out the food looked so good on other peoples plates that we decided to eat in, we were not disappointed especially as they had proper crackers with the cheese! and the rocky road mmm,,,,,,,,, the hotel has been recently redecorated to a high standard. the 2 rooms we had were both bright, clean well decorated and both had lovely comfy beds and hight standard bathrooms. breakfast again, was served by bright helpful staff, nothing too much trouble. if there had been available rooms we would have stayed another night. the harbour was a delight to walk around and your found yourself smiling while looking around the harbour market with the local crafts, fish, paintings etc. we had doughnuts at 'the forge' on the sea front with the supplied blankets over our knees while sitting on the deckchairs. our son is at canterbury university so we will definately be visiting whitstable again. hope you enjoy it

Room Tip: all the rooms are of a hight standard but try to book a room that has a balcony that overlooks the...

Booked at last minute & visited for one night only before my wife went for an cancer operation & treatment. It was just what the doctor would have ordered (if I'd asked). Room clean & comfortable. Shower only & a bit cramped. Food good. Air conditioning. Who needs it in Bliighty? Well, we did because it was a good summer on the weather front & hot when we stayed. Easy walk to Whitstable. Recommend but slightly over-priced.
