Booked at the last minute. A nice place. As seen better days but new owners seem to be making a strong effort to bring hotel up to date. My room is very pleasant, lovely bathroom. Seaview. Reception staff very polite. Hope breakfast is good..

I think from memory it just said smoking & didn't refer to vaping at all in the info book so you'd be best to ring them & check

There are very few hotels in the whole country that allow smoking in rooms now. Some rooms facing the seafront have French doors instead of windows but no balcony to speak of, so if you did open it for a smoke, the smell would go back in the room and you'd end up with a cleaning charge.

Does the hotel have a bar?
We do have a bar in the hotel, with prices in line with all local pubs. We offer a range of draught lager, beer and cider as well as Guinness Surger. We offer a range of wines on our wine list, and a large variety of spirits. We also stock a range of soft drinks. After getting a drink in the bar, sit in the lounge area and stare out at the sea, before heading into The Orangery, our marble-floored, sea-view restaurant serving fresh, locally-sourced Kentish produce every day of the week.
