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...

I was a bit put off by previous reviews: but was pleasantly surprised after checking in. The rooms are very comfortable with good facilities. The staff are very friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. The bar area is very cosy in the evenings, very pleasant to sit round the fire looking out at the sea. The location is excellent...

Stayed in the Sandgate recently and am so glad it was only for one night! The hotel is in dire need of a thorough re-furnishment. Out room was dirty, the bed linen not ironed and the towels very old and stained. The windows were almost opaque with dirt and the bathroom very uninviting. Such a shame as it could be...
