Our room was very small. You could only just get around the bed. The balcony was far larger than the room! Staff were friendly and helpful to us although they were not flexible to guests arriving even 10 minutes before check in time. Night porter dealt with fire alarm evacuation at 3am really well. It is reassuring that the system...

It's great to hear you had a good stay although sorry to hear you had to evacuate at 3am. I will pass your kind comments on to our night porter about how well this was dealt with. Some of our rooms are larger than others so it is worth ringing the hotel directly for advice if you require a larger...

Smart boutique hotel with good food and attentive staff. Refurbishment has produced comfortable modern rooms with lovely little touches. Only low water pressure for showers lets it down but it was adequate.

My husband and i stayed in room 16 for one night. We had to park at the over flow car park a 1 minute walk away, which was no problem at all, especially as there was no additional parking charges. The room was clean, tidy and pleasant, it was small, but just what we needed for one night, especially as...

Thought we would go to the Continental for breakfast. What a rip off £12.50 each for breakfast. Absolutely ridiculous how can you justify that. Won't be going back. Staff took ages to bring over 2 coffees

We have stayed here a couple of times and we absolutely love it. It's casual and relaxed with beautiful views and lovely staff. Can't fault it. The breakfast is great and the refurbished rooms are spacious, modern and immaculately clean. We will definitely be returning, many, many times!

Recently stayed in room 3 for our 22nd wedding anniversary. Room has excellent sea view and was light and airy, well equipped with kettle and mini bar, very large double bed. Friendly informal hotel, very convenient for all Whitstable has to offer. Excellent breakfast, would thoroughly recommend and hope to return soon.

Given the price we paid for one night, we expected so much more e.g. a king or queen sized bed rather than simply a double bed. The shower could have been of a much higher standard and the room and equipment were basic. No wonder people go abroad as you get a much better standard of equipment. The restaurant, however,...
