Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very good portions, including tender pork with a nice and crispy crackling, served with a light Yorkshire pudding, a rich stuffing and vegetables done just right. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful. Plus we were lucky enough to to have sea view. Definitely recommended.

Small room, small bed, even smaller dated bathroom but the staff were friendly and polite. The hotel is beautifully located right in the centre of the seafront, just across from the pier. Breakfast was freshly made as well as continental available.

Firstly the room had a great view. The downside was the en-suite had a few issues. The shower head was in poor condition with limescale build up and needs renewing. The water also ran down the wall which had limescale in areas. The extractor fan was blocked with dust. The toilet brush was old and looked awful. The window plant box and window ledge had pistachio nut shells amongst them. Plants were in need of watering. Sadly the mattress was a memory foam one and became very hot, so ended up sleeping on top of the duvet. Lastly the vegetarian breakfast option had some poor quality items and only attempted it once.

After a long day, the hotel offered a welcome respite. Deep mattress and soft pillows. The hotel is in the perfect location. Outstanding breakfast... only the pot of tea let the experience down. Two tea bags or a better brand please.

The Waterfront Hotel. Booking was made by phone the night before and left on answerphone. Staff rang back next day to confirm. On the seafront, opposite the pier, this is a very relaxed, comfortable setting for eating. Almost felt like I was sitting in someones front room. A proper home cooked sunday roast, where they know how to roast a potato. and make a decent yorkshire pudding. And it was a decent sizedmeal - not too little or too much. Really impressed. Staff really friendly - nothing too much bother . Very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Pro’s Check in was quick and easy The location was great, we had a sea view room with a great view of the pier and seafront. Not sure you could get a much better view in Deal! Lovely, helpful cleaners with great customer service (the best we received in the hotel). Con’s The breakfast was below average! Was really shocked as I’ve heard good things about the breakfasts. The mushrooms were massively overcooked and shrivelled, and I’m not sure what I had on my plate would have passed as a sausage elsewhere. The whole plate of food just tasted the same, as though it had all been cooked in the same deep fat fryer. It felt like the chef didn’t care. My partners eggs royale was swimming in Hollandaise and according to him, not tasty. Poor presentation too. Despite breakfast being included, went elsewhere on day 2. Not that the staff were rude in any way, but the customer service was just non existent. It felt like they just didn’t care, were not motivated, and were doing the bare minimum, except the cleaners who smiled, asked us if everything was ok, and seemed to care about the guest experience more so than front of house / breakfast staff. Very dated decor, could do with a refresh throughout. Room very hot despite a fan being provided. Not necessarily the hotels fault, but just something to be aware of if you already struggle with heat. Summary This hotel could be a gem - but it feels like the staff don’t care and need some motivation.

We stayed here as wanted to visit for the day and was in the perfect location for exploring this lovely area. Room was comfortable and we had an amazing view overlooking the beach and sea and the pier. Just a few yards from some lovely pubs and restaurants and the town centre just around the corner. Breakfast was nice. I do have 1 little grumble as I asked for tinned tomatoes as did other customers and was told they had run out so would have too have a grilled tomato instead but apart from this everything else was great

Stayed 3 nights last week and wish it had been longer. Great little hotel in a perfect position opposite the pier and with a great view of the sea. The building is quite old so don’t expect all mod cons etc. What you get is very warm welcome from all members of staff. We loved chatting to Adrian and Spencer who run the place between them. Breakfast is excellent, served very efficiently by Maria. We had dinner on two of our three nights and it was good both nights, huge portions. Paid for parking is available immediately behind the hotel or there is free street parking just five minutes walk away……we used both. We would love to go back if the opportunity arises.
