      Our second time to stay in this hotel. Room is clean, staff are all very nice. My children love the full English breakfast.

      .Available parking. Comfortable enough bed. Cooked breakfast, although scrambled egg a bit rubbery .

      We stayed in room 28 and found the route from reception to it tortuous. We tried to have an early night, but it was ruined by banging doors and water-hammer in the water pipes at all hours. Had we known what was coming there was no way we would have booked . Our charge for providing this useful information is £30. The reason for the charge is that we are not making ab official complaint; just giving you an opportunity to make amends in more ways than one.

      Reasonably priced, reasonable breakfast, good size room, clean, right on the seafront.

      Walls a bit thin so some noise from neighbouring guests, car park a bit rough, but no worse than expected for the money

      Breakfast

      Dampness of room 20. Mould above window in bathroom. Because of the dampness nothing would dry. The towels were as wet after we showered on Saturday as before we showered on Sunday. All the bedding was damp. We opened a couple of windows but this did not make any difference we did not open the larger windows due to security concerns. The atmosphere was damp causing slight breathing difficulties for my wife. There is obviously a problem there which needs to be sorted.

      The view from the suite that we like is always stunning especially during the summer months when we wake up early in the morning (due to jet lag) and you look out to sea and across to Kent.

      The room we finally got was good, nice size apartment. The breakfast was excellent. The views of the coast from apartment very good. The staff were friendly and helpful.

      When arriving at the hotel we were told that another guest was staying on further and that we would be given a similar room. The room we were given was tiny, it had missing shades from the ceiling light fitment and the bed was small and uncomfortable. I went back to reception and told them it was not a similar room to the one I had booked and that I was not satisfied with it, the receptionist immediately gave us a upgrade at no further cost, we were pleased with the apartment. The shower was a mixer type which I had never seen in a hotel before. You could not get a correct mixture of hot/cold water.

      Room was close and on ground floor. Breakfast was good. Right location for our needs.

      The Hotel said that they did not have my name registered with them for a booking. After showing them Booked.net confirmation email a room was eventually sorted out. The room was fine - a little small but fine

      Modern quality room with en-suite bath (rm16) and lovely sea view. Hotel itself very clean and tidy modern decoration and carpets. Restaurant modern very smart as was bar area. Food very good. Landlady and staff all very pleasant and smartly dressed. A great experience.

      1. Probably the car parking claim. Not really the Hotels own but nevertheless very easy and handy behind the hotel. 2. Forgot to advise Hotel before leaving the bathroom would benefit from two or more towel rails to dry towels! And the loo seat kept coming apart. 3. Minor irritation was the chamber maid needs to make sure bottom sheet fits and not left not tucked in! Otherwise all excellent. Thank you.

      The Staff were very polite and friendly both at check in and throughout our stay. The Hotel is very clean and bedroom / bathroom was set at a very good standard for the price. Bar staff were very accomodating. Breakfast was great and served well. All in all a great place to stay and good value considering its location.

      Would have liked to be able to open a window to get some fresh air but we were on the ground floor at the back of the hotel so for security reasons I guess the windows were locked down and protective glass installed. Some air conditioning or a simple fan may have helped. Did not like the hangers in the wardrobe. I know some people steal them if they are the normal ones and thus understand why the mini ones are used but they are a pain!

      We found the hotel clean and bright and the staff friendly. We were only there overnight but would definitely recommend it to friends and stay again if we are in the area.

      Having booked a superior room, when we arrived we were upgraded to a sea view room. What a way to start the morning, a cup of tea and watching the boats on the estuary. The room was very comfortable and the whole thing was beautiful. The service from the staff was above normal standard and their patience with families was outstanding

      The staff was excellent in answering all of my questions and assisting me as best they could.

      I was there for business and am used to a hotel that provides more amenities to a business traveller.
