Reviewed 7 February 2013

We stayed for one night in February and were not disappointed.We were in the superior suite and the view is fantastic and the room clean and spacious.Although the room and bathroom could do with some updating this did not detract from how comfortable we felt. The evening meal was superb and the restaurant staff very friendly and helpful.We have already booked the same room for later in the year as we enjoyed our stay so much and would recommend this to anyone.

I have stayed at this Hotel many times now on business and pleasure and have never left feeling let down.
Super superior rooms with a great view if you ask and book them. This does cost a little extra but well worth it. There is a great bar area downstairs with a good local feel about the place.
Many great golf courses around you also.
Breakfast is great but I have not had an evening meal thete as I always go to the Tartar Frigate, a fantastic fish place in Broadstairs.
I am looking forward to my next visit.

We have been staying at the Fayreness 8 to 10 times a year for a number of years now.

The food used to be brilliant and some of the chief's specials were really good as were the desserts. Gypsy tart like it was at school, lemon meringue pie, cheesecake, trifles etc etc. We used to really look forward to staying there and having a meal.

After Shepherd Neame took over the chefs specials board disappeared, the menu changed so much there was very little we liked anymore.

We still stay at the Fayreness, but have a meal elsewhere before booking in. We still enjoy the breakfast but we must admit we found like others it was very cold in the restaurant. We were told two of the radiators were not working.

The views from the seaview rooms are well worth the extra £20 and i thought the prices were quite reasonable for the accommodation but a little dissapointed with the quality and selection of food - would have preferred to see a couple of "daily specials" although at this time of the year it may be more difficult.Super place for afternoon tea with superb views out to sea and lovely walks.

The staff were welcoming, hotel clean & tidy. The room was very good, only minor gripe the room was cold when we arrived. Had to turn the radiators on, took an hour to warm up. The breakfast was good, only gripe was that the papers were late arriving and we had to collect them from reception. Evening meal was very good, calfs liver was excellent! Overall a restful stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, sunset/rise beautiful.
