The Crescent Turner, Whitstable, is a stylish, 18-bedroom boutique hotel, set high up on Wraik Hill, overlooking the Kent coast. It has panoramic views of the sea and gorgeous surrounding countryside. Whitstable is a family-orientated but fashionable seaside town - famous for its beach huts, Oyster Festival and quaint harbour. There are quirky, independent shops and galleries, Whitstable Castle and an increasingly popular arts festival - the Whitstable Biennale. The Crescent Turner has individually designed bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, terrace area, gardens and - very importantly - its own Beach Hut on Whitstable beach, which guests may reserve. Bedrooms are spacious and light, many with sea views. Head down to Whitstable for a family break or a romantic getaway. You'll love the subtle decor of this newly remodelled boutique hotel - less than two hours from central London. Of course, the beach is a major feature in summer, but Whitstable is busy and interesting all-year round, and there are wonderful walks in the Kent countryside and other pretty towns and villages to visit while you are here.The Crescent Turner Hotel

Stayed at the Crescent Turner last night for the 2nd time and honestly cannot fault anything. The hotel itself is beautiful with amazing views and room 10 which is our favourite is perfect! The staff can't do enough for you especially Harry who made our stay even more enjoyable.

a lovely little boutique hotel and our first visit. The staff were young and enthusiastic and friendly. The main reception was sleek... pale grey, mirrors, plush sofas and dark ironwork. Our room, in the eaves, was sophisticated without ostentation and with all the things one

This hotel was just beautiful inside and out. The views are magnificent, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were extremely helpful. Our room was beautiful, very big, clean and tidy. Only one draw back was that we were given room 1 which is next to the bar. Not a

Dear Guests, Thank you very much for your review and the kind words about my team. I am sorry about your second evening experience, from our residence that enjoyed themselves but forgot about the rest of our guests. Our policy is to allocate room no 1 to a group that visits the hotel, so if they enjoyed our hospitality in the late hours it doesn't affect the rest of the hotel guests. I will be delighted to see you personally on your next visit and allocate you a tranquil room where you can take advantage of our mesmerising views over the isle of sheppy and the Thames WW2 u boats defence fortress. Warm Regards Toni Spasovski General Manager

There were children staying in the hotel during the time of our stay. There is a large open space around the hotel for the children to run around in, however there is limited space inside. There are board games left out in the lounge, including backgammon and a compendium of games. A children's menu was available for breakfast but I am unsure about dinner. The children were young in age and appeared quite happy in their surroundings. The staff were attentive to both children and adults alike. I hope this has helped you to make your decision.

The Hotel is 5 min drive from Whitstable and 10 min drive from Canterbury. Whitstable is lovely seaside fishing town with good quality restaurants lovely place to go for a long walk by the sea. However Canterbury is more of a shopping place with Bars and Clubs and of course the birth of church of England Canterbury cathedral Please visit our web site to see some pictures about our Hotel..

"the rooms which face the town and sea have a stunning view where the land drops away several hundred feet."
"Sea view rooms 15 to 20 on upper floors but are over the function room and kitchen."
"We did not stay...just had meals there. Not recommended."
"Avoid #14 which has a window next to the car park. Was I given that room because I had booked a room through Booking.com?"
"Try to get a sea view"
