Room a bit overly warm.
We had a really warm welcome when we arrived. Everything was explained to us & we were given an itinery of the festival weekend. We loved our room which was spotlesly clean & the bed was lovely & comfortable. We ate in the brasserie & sat outside in the sun overlooking the quay. We had a wonderful meal in the Restaurant & the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Sandwich is a lovely part of the world & we will come back. Thank you
I would have liked a fan in the room but there was nothing I didn't like.
LOVELY ROOM STAFF VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY, WILL DEFINITELY BE VISITING AGAIN
Good location, comfortable bed
Wifi was poor A lot of noise from outside late at night Had a long wait for breakfast. Not enough staff seemed to be on hand. A lot of the food had already gone.
The location, the ambience of the hotel in the evening and morning. The level of comfort in the public areas. Night porter was very welcoming even though we arrived late.
Breakfast was good, but felt slightly chaotic. It was a busy morning admittedly, but we did get several missed orders i.e. tea for coffee, white toast instead of brown and a couple of orders which were not from table. Our actual table for two felt right in the middle of the self-help area so didn't feel particularly restful. Was unable to move as it was so busy. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating, but the systems seemed to be a little chaotic on this occasion. That said, the room was lovely and very well decorated. And a lovely bed.
Staff were friendly and professional and room was very comfortable. Location great and parking was't a problem due to the hotels voucher system. Would definitely stay here again.
The staff were great, and facilities good. Scrupulously clean. Great breakfast. Would certainly go back.
Cloud wi-fi access is fiddly and time consuming. There should be easier access. Door locking is fiddly. Might confuse some people and lead to doors remaining unlocked. Simpler process needed.
Lovely staff, breakfast and area
Broken shower head, was useable but not great
The staff are very friendly and obliging.
The traffic noise stopped me in having a comfortable sleep.
Inedible breakfast Noise of a/c fans from restaurant next door all night Very hot room
Our comments were dealt with promptly by the staff and manager to ensure that we felt valued.
Staff couldn't have been friendlier Excellent food at very competitive prices Beautiful room, lovely furnishings
Lots of stairs.
Excellent service from the minute we walked in. Attentive staff across all departments. When staff discovered my wife had worked at the hotel some 40 years ago, they were genuinely interested in what it was like in the 70`s. Food was good, well presented. Room was excellent, clean tidy and view was good across the quay.
What was not to like?
A great location, lovely rooms and excellent bar area. The staff were all very welcoming, especially with our dog !
Right on the river. Lovely clean room with huge towels and v comfortable bed. Breakfast was good and good selection. Nice outdoor seating for sunny days.
Bathroom needs better ventilation and the taps n shower control sorted out. Tiny shower cubicle with cold condensation dripping. Breakfast cold by the time in came from kitchen. Very noisy to 2,am with people drinking outside.
Location Food Friendly staff Dogs welcome Nice public rooms
Very hot room (11) Disorganised service in restaurant
The breakfast was lush especially the chocolate coissants, plenty to eat and didn't have to wait long for our cooked breakfast also the staff were very polite and efficient.
Need to have air con in the rooms as sleeping was difficult, the room was hot even with the window open.
In a hotel charging top notch prices I don't expect to shower with a bloody plastic shower curtain sticking to me. The breakfast service seemed a little disorganised also.
Great location, great dining and bar facilities. Great staff - thanks Anita on reception!
Decor in corridors and our room a little tired, but it is an old building. There are lots of corridors they could do with some pictures to brighten them. Lack of parking
The restaurant staff were poor all young and under trained
Bar and lobby and staff
Showers weren't great Taps were a bit dodgy Stifling hot in rooms
The overall look of the hotel was very tasteful and reception staff really helpful
Our room was on the small side. The restaurant staff seemed to be quite new a probably not fully trained
The location of the hotel is fantastically located in the heart of the beautiful village of Sandwich. A must see are The secret gardens of Sandwich just a short walking distance from the hotel. The hotel's decor is tasteful and the food in the restaurant is lovely.
The woman on duty on reception .
The apparently disorganised breakfast arrangements/ the need to ask several times / the long wait with no explanation/ the lack of order / the spartan look of the dining room / white table clothes would have helped .
Position of hotel good rooms very clean
Shampoo etc not changed every day even though used Bed uncomfortable as a double sinks in centre Toilets not cleaned perhaps a brush required
