              6.2

              The location. Friendly and helpful staff.

              It needs a bit of refurbishment, eg more comfortable matress and better showering facilities.

            • Single
              5.4

              If you want somewhere cheap to sleep before the ferry / tunnel then this hotel will meet your needs. It was good value, including an all you can eat breakfast and overnight parking

              The toilet was a sanilav rather than a real toilet. When you flushed, it leaked all over the floor. The flooring in the toilet was lifting, so this had been broken for a long time.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The Hotel was clean & good value,the breakfast offered good choice.The guy who did the bar on his own was superb,friendly,proffesional & very pleasant.

              Bed was a little uncomfy,tv reception was poor.

              Good breakfast

              Music in the lounge directly under our room 117 till midnight

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Breakfast

              no central heating, in need of updating eg window frames poorly fitting, bathroom was old fashioned

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Helpfullnes of some of the staff

              The room was very cold with the heating on. You could put your hand in the gap in the window. You had to run the tap for 5 min before getting warm water. Breakfast service was slow.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Hotel staff friendly & welcoming. Room/bed clean & comfortable [although decor bath tv etc stuck in the 80's] Breakfast ok.

              Hotel in need of a make over.

            • Group of friends
              5.8

              - cheap, good hard working kitchen staff

              no internet, no telephone, poor decor, very old furniture, a very tired hotel.

            • Group of friends
              7.0

              I found the staff very freindly and helpful and they alwayed had a smile when they talked to you.

              The room was very damp and musty,the pertion wall to thin.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              It has a lovely location by the sea front. Very peaceful.

              The hotel is a bit tired. The rooms could do with a make over.

            • Couple
              5.0

              The hotel is extremely dated. The walls between the rooms are very thin - we could hear everything from next room and this affected our night's sleep.

            • Single
              7.0

              I was made to feel very welcome at both the Reception and in the dining room. There were no 'airs and graces' just a comfortable 'at home' feeling. Breakfast was served from 06.30 which suited my needs and probably most of the other guests who, like me, probably wanted to get on with their day at the golf in Sandwich.

              Not unaturally, because of the Open Golf tournament at Sandwich a few miles along the coast, the management had increased their prices. Fair enough, but in my opinion, probably about £20 per night too much.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              The Staff were great and very helpful, the breakfast was fantastic, drinks were cheap in the bar. Linen very clean.

              The room wasn't exactly comfortable, floorbaords creak at every point, toilet seat kept moving, the tele was far too small couldn't read the writing on it from the bed. Could have done with larger towels for after having a shower.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Basic but great value for money and friendly.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              It was a very convenient location for an event we were attending at the Leas Cliff Hall
