    We found The Marine a welcoming and lively hotel, and found the staff very helpful and pleasant. The room was very clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed a very nice evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant where the service was especially good. All in all very good value for money.

    I went to a family wedding. Severalof my family also stayed at the Marine. We would stay there again if we were down that way.

    Fabulous

    All the members of staff were really friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant in the evening. The blonde girl serving couldn't have been more welcoming - we got to sit with a beautiful view out to sea which was great. At breakfast the young man was equally friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with the people who work there. The shower in the bathroom took a bit of working out but once fiddled with was of a good quality. The bed was SOOO soft and comfy. Parking was no problem either as we parked directly outside the hotel. We could see the car as we stared out of our window which always seems reassuring!

    The only very minor moan would be the television in the room. Though modern and showing the Freeview channels, it wouldn't show BBC1. Not a massive setback unless you really want to see something. I think it was more to do with the lack of reception in the area rather than a duff set. Anyway, who goes away to watch tv?

    Good

    Had a comfortable room with a good night's sleep. Breakfast in the morning was of a good standard.

    Although room was in a clean condition,was disappointed with the windows not having adequate locks on. Also found TV had no signal so could not watch TV in room.

    Friendly staff both in connection with the hotel and the bar. Ample car parking, hotel close to local shops. And quite close to whitstable as well. Had seafromt room which was nice, but balcony needed to be cleaned up. Bathroom was modern but needs a handrail on the wall for access into the shower (above bath)

    Very good

    We originally booked for one night but changed to stay for 3. For the middle day we had arranged an 80th birthday celebration lunch. The meal was very good. The staff were plenty, prompt and courteous. It all went very smoothly and we had use of the room for as long as we wanted, which was well into the evening for some. All went very smoothly. Excellent room with balcony overlooking the sea. Very good breakfast.

    Friendly staff met for an annual reunion with 8 university friends a wedding reception set the co;petition for the evening My sea facing double standard room was recently refurbished....small but pleasant. and clean

    Food and wine in the restaurant were poor value for money..better of dining at the continental hotel which is our regular haunt. Or elsewhere I would book again but not eat in the restaurant

    Lovely hotel in a great location. Very close to lots of lovely places and a very good base for sightseeing. Would highly recommend.

    The hotel is being refurbished at the moment although this did affect us in any way .

    Superb

    The Superior Double Room with sea view and balcony was large and recently refurbished. Plenty of storage space (wardrobe and drawers). Very comfortable bed. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Really good value for a first class room. Good breakfast choice with alternatives available plus fresh fruit, cereals and yoghurt. In a wonderful position with free car parking at the rear.

    Nicely refurbished bathroom but shower over the bath was too powerful. With just a shower curtain it was a headache trying to prevent washing the windows and flooding the floor! Breakfasts were buffet style and was overcooked the first morning but fine the following two mornings. At the time of our stay the hotel was only half open so meals were served in a function room, as the restaurant was closed. Assume this was the reason for not having freshly cooked English breakfasts because the kitchens were in the closed part of the hotel.

    Superb

    The refurbished bedroom was a big improvement with luxury towels, very welcome and new aircom. The breakfast as always is excellent with a wide range of dishes available and freshly cooked.

    The shower in the bath was not easy to regulate as the water pressure was very high and quite painfull. You needed to run the bath taps at the same time as running the shower in order to reduce the pressure in the shower! Very wasteful.

    Room beautifully finished and comfortable bed.

    Reception rooms and stairwell poor but were obviously being refurbished

    Fabulous

    Good value, sea view and close to town centre

    Nothing, but I think that the projected upgrade will give it a more contemporary feel.

    Exceptional

    Despite being part way through a renovation programme, building work did not intrude on our stay. Our renovated room was delightful with a great sea view. Once the programme is complete the scruffy public areas will be of the same standard . The location is picture postcard perfect, walking distance to Whitstable with local amenities a few minutes away.A very enjoyable weekend break exploring the Kent coast from a very comfortable base. We would return to this hotel.

    Exceptional

    In the process of refurbishment and the room we stayed in was really nice - boutique hotel like.

    The bar and reception area needs upgrading but they are in the processs of doing this. It will be a perfect location and standard when completed. Staff are great.
