Had eaten here before but never stayed. Had lovely (compact but functional) delux sea view room with terrace. Nice and clean, decent sized bathroom, very cute, would stay again. Staff all friendly. Had mussels in restaurant - excellent.

We booked the Continental after our friends recommended it, although they had only stopped in the huts. When we arrived the staff were lovely and friendly. We had a drink in the bar with friends, great atmosphere. The hotel looked freshly decorated and clean. We then went to our room on the second floor. Although nicely decorated it has to... More

Glad to hear that you enjoyed many aspects of your stay. We are aware of and apologise for the problem with the water pressure in certain rooms and are working towards rectifying this. The hotel is an old building and there are restrictions on what we have been able to do regarding the size of the rooms during our renovations.... More

We were visiting family in Whitstable, travelling 253 miles from our home in West Yorkshire, it was only a quick overnight visit to catch up with family we haven't seen in some time. I looked on the usual sites for accommodation for my family, my wife, our 5 year old and myself. We wanted somewhere close by, a sea view... More

The room you originally chose was our largest family room for 5, this does not have a sea view either so we are not sure why you were expecting one. Thoroughly enjoyed the details of your journey all the way down from Yorkshire. We apologise for the aspects of the hotel you found unappealing and will certainly pass on relevant... More

We booked a room with a sea view. It was small, but cute. I didn't like the bedding. It felt a little itchy (but, I am very fussy about quality cotton bedding). The hotel is the only one on the beach and is pricey for what it is. Our room was £175! The staff were super helpful with dinner reservations... More

We are pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and that you found the staff to be helpful. The hotel is centrally located on Whitstable sea front and this is reflected in the price. You also paid a premium for a room with sea view. Sorry to hear you found the bedding uncomfortable, it is high quality hotel... More

We stayed here for one night recently, had a lovely room with a sea view and balcony. The room had been refurbished and was comfortable. The Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were attentive, we would certainly stay again the next time we are in Whitstable.

Great location right on the seafront (although a couple of minutes walk to shops etc). Room was clean and pretty, with a nice balcony. However it was very small which meant one of us had to sit on the bed if the other one was moving around!

Really nice place to stay, wonderful sea views from very comfortable rooms. Just a shame it all feels a bit disorganised - bookings for the wrong room, things having to be ordered more than once or brought to the wrong table. Wouldn't put me off staying again, but I would check the booking the day before!

A wonderful hotel with stylish rooms which have recently been refurbished. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was very good. Oysters available in the bar. Superb location overlooking the sea. So good that I want to keep it to myself! Full marks all round.
