“Warm, friendly and by the coast”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

This was the second time we have stayed with my wife and relations. We love the location, atmosphere and good food. The staff are very friendly and did everything they could to make our stay memorable. We will stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommed the restaurant and hotel to family and friends.

The Fayreness is an excellent place to stay and I have used this hotel for many years. The view from the rooms is stunning, the food excellent and overall excellent service.

Beautiful Location and good food in restaurant. The door was connecting the accomodation from the pub was noisy when closing and this was annoying when trying to rest. Would probably stay again if we were not in the same sleeping quarters

Spent 2 nights in good clean accomodation, only had breakfast but that had everything you could wish for,if it was not on show you only had to ask.Staff very friendly and in/out procedures very good. Understand refurbishment is imminent by brewery that will improve what is already far better surroundings than in many I have stayed in Just hope price doesn't detract in future.

'We don't have Marmalade, because it's a Bank Holiday'.'
This guest advises others to bring their own. If you bring a large jar, you could make new friends
'We don't have ice.'
This guest suggests that ice can be purchased at Tesco in Margate for 99p.
'We don't have cold water, you have to have it at the temperature that it comes out of the tap.'
Dress code in restaurant for men - no shoes.
Dress code in restaurant for children - pyjamas.
It was warm during our stay, two fans were supplied in the room. The chamber staff saved us having to throw off the duvets at night, by not placing them on the beds and leaving them on the floor instead.
Good idea to take own loo rolls as these are given very grudgingly.

The room was lovely. The most comfortable mattress we've ever stayed in. Very quiet. Mobile reception poor. Not far from town by car.
