We both enjoyed scampi & chips - large portions, piping hot and well-presented. However, the stand-out feature of our lunch was the excellent service. Order was taken very promptly by an extremely pleasant and friendly waitress, and the food arrived in quick time. We had a Shepherd Neame birthday voucher, so had two meals for the price of one. All...

Ate here on Saturday morning with a group of 6 adults and 1 child and had a terrible experience! We sat down and all ordered from the breakfast menu, 3 of the 7 meals ordered arrived promptly with the remaining 4 being totally forgotten about! When questioned for the first time the young girl offered no apology and barely spoke...

We have spent our anniversary here for the last 6 years or so. We stay in the Lady Hamilton room which is right on the beach front with amazing views. The room has been decorated since our last visit and was lovely in itself but all the previous nautical references had gone which was a bit of a shame. New...

Never have I stayed anywhere with such charming and helpful staff. We received a very warm welcome, and throughout our stay we found staff interested in our plans and keen to help in any way they could. We had a lovely sunny and spacious room with sea aspects from both windows. Being such an old establishment, the walls and floor...

Sitting outside on the terrace on the seafront our family group had 6 fish and chips and one fish pie. We were all very happy with the food. Great location on the seafront - lots of people passing by to watch.

Stayed here for one night in the 'Superior Room' as a quick spontaneous trip with my boyfriend. Very charming hotel on the seafront. Old building I presume but lovely original features and very clean and tastefully decorated. Floor seemed slanted which was very strange as you were going up the stairs but it didn't trouble us. Pleasant staff at the...
