I stayed overnight at the Sandgate with my wife when we were on an early Eurotunnel departure on our motorbike - it's very handy for the terminal, just 10 minutes away. OK this is no five star hotel - think more classic faded south coast - but if you look beyond the superficial incidentals this place offers very good value...

We made a block booking for the Sandgate Hotel for up to 10 couples and a family on route to a wedding the nest day I had attended the venue beforehand to ‘check in out’ and recognised it was a 2 star hotel , but reasonably priced People were arriving during a busy time for the bar area, which doubles...

Needed a one night stay on way back from Eurotunnel and checked web for a reasonable deal. Picked the Sandgate but should have chosen the same hotel we used on the way out to France (Holiday Inn). The reception lady (who doubled as the barmaid and the breakfast waitress) was more than erful and helpful, even to the extent of...

We regularly attend this venue for either a meal or a quick coffee n chips. Either way the staff are equally super friendly and accommodating. The view of the sea is uninterrupted thanks to a raised terrace outside when the sun is out and open fire inside for when it's cold. Either way the standard at this venue is very...

The hotel is in a great position with a lovely view out to sea. Went for a romantic evening meal and we were the only 2 eating in the restaurant. The service was ok but the food was a let down. For a restaurant by the sea the sea food was average at best. I don't think I've ever had...

We called into the Sandgate Hotel for lunch after walking along the Lower Leas from Folkstone.The hotel staff were friendly,pleasant and polite.We had an excellent lunch well presented,good sized portions,and very good quality.A very presentable bottle of white wine at a reasonable price.Would recommend to any one especially after the walk we had done.

I booked this hotel as a last minute deal. Originally I was looking to book through www.booking.com, however when I went onto the Sandgate website itself, I ended up saving myself £30 for exactly the same service to what I was offered through the comparison website, so I was very impressed to begin with. Due to booking on the website,...

I have been here a couple of times (why I went again I'll never know). The menu items look interesting, however after what is a very long wait (40 minutes when the restaurant is half empty) they are ultimately disappointing. The oil used for chips is clearly very old, salads wilted, bread invariably stale / hard. I felt that I...

Not sure where to start! Location is nice as had a sea view room but this hotel needs so much doing to it! Room very basic, but thankfully a clean (and comfy) bed (was a bit worried after reading other reviews!), although a stained and dusty chair in the corner and pillows that were about 1 inch thick! Brown water...
