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...

We stayed one night at this hotel prior to taking an early train to France. It was extremely convenient and the room was fine. We stayed at the back - the rooms at the front - a little more expensive have a wonderful sea view. We had a delicious supper freshly cooked for us. I asked for extra veg which...

We returned to the Sandgate over the weekend. As ever, we were warmly welcomed, and give a room on the 1st floor, with a balcony. Due to the storms, there was a problem with the electricity in this room - so we were given another, equivalent room, with no fuss. The breakfast was excellent; we were particularly impressed with the...
