This hotel used to be lovely, but it has gone SO downhill, sad to see. Our room was dirty, smelt of smoke. Windows and mirrors badly smeared, crumbling flaky window frames. The fire escape was out of use!! Rusted metal and the treads removed. Dangerous! Balcony littered with cigarette butts and dirty cups. Patio doors wouldn't shut so room cold,...

Spent four days with decorators on scaffolding just outside our "sea view" window, no notification of this situation , no notice apologising for inconvenience ! Bar /restaurant cold and dismal, no atmosphere, food OK. Floor tiles in bathroom broken crunching under our feet . Generally lacking in cleanliness .Staff were nice.

Stayed here for one night before going on eurotunnel. Pleasant staff. Easy check in. Lift up to rooms which we needed. Nice room with great view. We didn't eat there because we had plans but plenty of people were eating there.

Stayed here in March prior to shuttle crossing. Admittedly only £60 for b and b but rooms very tired, dodgy tiling on the wall and floor, scaffolding spoils sea view. Staff pleasant enough. in view many people will leave early for channel crossing, little flexibility on breakfast timing, 7.00 not before. Wouldn't go back even at £60 Sorry Sandgate Hotel

Exterior falling to pieces, room felt unhealthy, bathroom had rust, door to balcony didn't open, no plug in bath. However staff friendly and food more than passable. Ignore their photos. We stayed in the bedroom they show in advertising, and it was truly awful. If this was ever a top hotel, it's been allowed to become third rate. Forget the...

The reviews are true. It's a bit grotty , needs a good scrub and you can clearly hear the people in the next room. Just needs a bit of tec as its in a fantastic location and e customer service needs to be stepped up a little

The Sandgate Hotel did the job. My lovely little lady friend and I stayed here about a month or so ago now for a bit of a jolly and Begby just wants to say thank you because we had ourselves a wondrous jolly. Oh we did. 😊 You will have already seen my reviews of the local Sandgate nightlife or...

The hotels facade is rather tired, but a pleasant professional welcome by the resceptist was reassuring. We stayed in room 4 with sea view and balcony. It is noisier than the back rooms as it is on a quite busy road. There was an issue with the balcony door not being securable due to what looked like a past break...
