Chose this hotel as the perfect location for some great walking, and it was exactly what I was looking for. I had a garden room, quite small but great for one person and luckily the weather was lovely so was able to make use of the deck/garden area which makes the room seem twice the size. Had an amazing dinner...

The rooms are small but everything was great quality, the bed and bedsheets were absolute bliss! Fantastic location and a lovely, stylish feel to the property. Food was impressive but cooked breakfast not included in rates, which was a shame. Service was friendly and we loved the laid-back vibe. Would definitely go back

From the road, looks a bit like a little chef but once inside it is a cosy little bolthole with a great breakfast, friendly service and comfortable beds. The Gallivant is perfect as a base to explore Camber Sands and Dungeness without having to stay at Pontins!!!

Fantastic break - we loved the relaxed informality, superb service and excellent food. They even looked after a couple of plants for us while we went out for a long walk to Winchelsea and back. The Gurnard fish soup was delicious, as was the catch of the day (cod).

The hotel is really a good surprise, with many attentions for the guests. The place is few meters away from the dunes and the beach. The rooms are cosy and the people are very polite and dedicated to the guests.

While we enjoyed the night away with our one year old son and the hotels proximity to the beach is fabulous, i think this hotel is better suited to couples due to room size and lack of communal space.

For a boutique hotel with quality food and wines, the service in this hotel was just terrible. The staff were under trained and were not qualified. They did not clear the plates or glasses, they did not replenish the food or drinks and they walked past customers needing help or the mess needing clearing up. The manager was trying to...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Gallivant. I'm pleased you enjoyed the food and wines and am disappointed our service impacted your experience. We are currently training some new team members, but this shouldn't have impacted you. I'd grateful if you would consider contacting me directly to discuss your experience as I would like...

Lovely young and friendly service. The room was small (baby hampton) but really nicely designed with some great touches. The day bed/window seat was the most comfortable I've even had the opportunity to laze on! Food was fabulous - I'm partial to a continental breakfast, and this was my favourite of all time. We had a terrible night's sleep only...

We attended a wedding and was pleasantly surprised on the venue and comfort of this small hotel. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The room we slept in was clean and comfortable, so we have no complaints. There is one small thing, there wasn't any milk to go with the tea in the room. If i am in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to our coastal restaurant with rooms, across the road from the dunes of Camber Sands and beautiful sandy beach beyond. Inspired by the coastal motels you might find in California, we're a calm and relaxing hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life. We have 20 amazing bedrooms all decorated with an eye to the Hamptons and serve great food using almost exclusively locally sourced fresh ingredients. In 2016 we were included in The Times 'Coolest Beach Hotels - No. 4', The Mirror's 'Top 10 Seaside Hotels in the UK' and Squaremeal's 'UK's Best 100 Restaurants'. The private coastal garden incorporates mini secluded decks behind all the Garden and Luxury Garden rooms and is also home to The Beach Hut, where guests can enjoy relaxing massages and lovely facials after a day on the beach using ethical and natural health and beauty products that are exclusively blended in the UK. ... more   less
