Shame that the staff were excellent and very helpful but the hotel was creaky and tired. First night late evening a dog was incessantly barking in the room opposite. I phoned reception and the dog owners were told to quieten the dog which to be fair they did. Woken at 5 in the morning by people in room above banging...

We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday in the function room at Sandgate Hotel. Front of House Manager, Lillie, was excellent in assisting in the preparation, with her colleague Dan complimenting this excellence on the evening, ably assisted by a colleague. The function room itself provided an ideal location for our celebration, wonderful atmosphere, sensibly furnished & comfortably accommodating about forty...

Needs a thorough deep clean throughout and some re decorating looking very tired and uncared for. Room not even vacumed. Was a cheap short break with sea view balcony. Had lots of coastal walks. Lovely pub just around the corner where we had some brilliant meals.

Having read some of the reviews, we decided the benefit of the doubt was appropriate. We booked three sea view rooms and BOOKED a meal for 9 people to celebrate an 80th birthday. Upon arrival we were met courteously, booked in and went to our rooms which were absolutely fine, not outstanding, but absolutely fine. When joined by our party...

Me and my partner stayed her for 3 nights from the 12th of February and I have to say that after reading the previous reviews it made us reconsider staying here. We really enjoyed our time here and we even booked in for the valentines meal. It was so lovely and the manager lily that works there is so friendly,...

We stayed here on New Years Eve with friends to attend a wedding reception. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a great view of the channel and a balcony. The breakfast was huge.

Mixed reviews made me a little nervous about staying here, however, our experience was very pleasant. It's not 5* but we didn't pay for 5* either. Will definitely come again soon, for the view and ambience. Room was adequate with an amazing view - worth it just to wake up to the sunrise over the English Channel. We stayed on...

We visited this for my daughter's birthday as they provide a family room with 2 bedrooms. This turned out to be two rooms with an adjoining door. Positives - sea views, excellent food, friendly staff Negatives - on a busy road, little parking, u uncomfortable beds, toilets that do not flush, noisy extractor fans, needs redecorating

The receptionist was very friendly with a nice sweet smile :) We visited the Sandgate Hotel with our 3 dogs. The hotel is very dog friendly. It is just at a busy road by the sea, but in the night it was quiet. Only downside were the soft matress. The breakfast was perfect and done fresh. For the price it...
