We have stayed here before and always enjoy our visit. Clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The only snag this time was that our room rate did not include breakfast. Not sure whether this is new policy but much preferred it as a bed and breakfast room rate .

Let’s be very clear. The staff are great. They go out of the way to help and are friendly at all times. Food is good and the bar is a nice place to be. The internet is reliable and fast Sadly, the hotel is tired. They are repainting the outside at present, but it is the inside that needs attention....

The staff at the hotel were great and the breakfast wasn't too bad. It's in a good location and there were sea views if you can see out of the dirty windows. However, there is nothing else good to say about the hotel- the bathrooms are dated - we had no hot water in the morning and our shower didn't...

We stayed here as we had a very early start the next day at the Eurotunnnel. Ok, not the best hotel. Very dated and in need of refurbishing. However, it was only £50, and we did only want a bed, which although a little small, was very clean. As were the well used towels. We did have dinner, which was...

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
