    the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and clean. It is in an excellent location overlloking the sea. Meals very good value.

    The only negative comment to make is that it was very tired looking and could do with a coat of paint. Also the conservatory roof was full of holes and let the heavy rain come through.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The comfortable accomadation within walking distance of Whitstable friendly staff

  • Group of friends

    I would describe the the whole experience at the Marine as "adequate".

    Here again the cuisine was adequate although I was apalled by one evening dinner, where a Carvery was offered. The way in which the so called "chef" served the main meat course with his hands was nothing more than sickening.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Friendly staff, tea making facilities in room, great sea view.

    Bathroom was a bit dated and shower was not efficient. We had a room that was high up so quite difficult with bags as no lift or concierge.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Good seafront location. Quiet area outside town. We had sea facing room with small balcony.

    Hotel is a typical seaside hotel. In need of decorating and updating, looks very tired and carpets well worn. Ok for one or two nights stay.

  • Older travelers

    We walked out of this Hotel as soon as we saw the room and the balcony which was shrouded in netting to keep the seagulls out ! Dont stay there its awfull . This is perhaps the worst hotel room we have ever been offered .

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The Marine has a superb location, excellent parking facilities and a convenient dining room now serving pub food. The front rooms have a fine view over the Thames estuary.

    The hotel is pretty run down and even the very best rooms are in need of refurbishent

    Accessibility to beach.

    Insufficient staff for breakfast servings, cobwebs, etc in room

  • Older travelers

    Great position on sea front - worth paying extra for sea view - good bar & restaurant -[pub grub]- short drive or pleasant walk to whitstable- wifi available in 2nd floor room we had - plenty of free parking spaces - freshly cooked breakfast very good

    Room clean but a bit tired decor wise - hotel has no lift

    Very nice Hotel .Excellent locaion easy parking.Would recommend to anybody.Nice room very large bathroom (Room 26) .Breakfast was excellent ,self service.

    The night I stayed the bar was busy and had to wait sometime to be served,only one person serving.Not really a problem, nice to see the hotel busy

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    great location. big comfortable rooms with fine views - modern tv and quality towels. excellent bar with good choice of real ale and quality food. good choice at breakfast eg kippers/smoked haddock & poached eggs as well as traditional fare.

    the carpeting in parts of the hotel is a little tired looking - some has been renewed.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    It is a traditional seaside hotel with all the history. Staff is very friendly, helpful and even with non english speaking/behaving guests (we are from germany) very patient. Room was great, bed okay, bathroom big. Breakfast was a real highlight, you need no lunch when you take the full english breakfast.

    Room was not very clean. But maybe we have too high standards. Our room was to the back so we had no seaview from our room. (But we had a breakfast table with seaview and you can go outside)

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Very nice hotel, friendly staff could not have done more to help with our retirement function. Nice room, very clean and well kept. Would highly recommend both the rooms and the breakfast.
