We are well acquainted with the Gallivant and it remains one of our favourite places to stay.

Minor point but the shower head didn't stay at the height it was set at. "Honesty" cupboard hosts the only CCTV camera in the whole hotel!
Incredible fish served in the restaurant.
18 April 2015
Someone kept trying to get in to our room during the night which was a bit scary, although doors lock automatically so they couldn't get in. Would prefer a more conventional breakfast - waffles a bit dry.
Gorgeous location, right opposite the beach, and beautiful decor.
17 April 2015
Walls were thin (could hear next doors TV til late), bathroom wasn't the cleanest (especially the air vent), a very young receptionist 'tutted' at the fact I couldn't close the front door properly which wasn't necessary
The location to the beach, the politeness of a few staff members, the food, the parking, the honesty larder.
11 April 2015
Wifi in our room was patchy but that was a minor nuisance.
We like the location, staff and accommodation. However dining is a particular highlight at the Gallivant - excellent dishes made using local produce.
9 April 2015
We liked it all!
I came to the Gallvant two years ago as a birthday treat. It was lovely to return with my young daughter for some girl time.

Such comfortable beds + down quilts Wonderful breakfast - home made / local produce - recovery station a bonus Quality dining - excellent local wine Stylish interior & special touches Very pleasant & helpful staff Easy reach of vast beach + dunes

The hotel is beautifully presented,not like others in the area. Lovely food, locally sourced. Very comfortable and would come again.

At the risk of sounding like Alex Polizzi. Shabby chic doesn't have to mean that the paint finishes in the rooms don't match the front of house and restaurant areas. The distressed up cycled furniture works well, but more attention to grout finishing and paintwork would bring the standard up to match the rest of the experience. We stayed in room 9 - Fyi.
Located across the road from the stunning camber sands for long walks. Relaxed atmosphere. Noble Isle toiletries very nice and the honesty tuck shop a nice touch. Bed was very comfy and slept well.

It feels a little overpriced, for what are essential stylish chalet style accommodation.
The hotel is a brilliant location with easy access to the Camber Sands . The restaurant is excellent and serves wonderful food.

Super staff plus lovely room and location even in winter.Had small problem with room that was booked not available on arrival due to plumbing problem but staff made up for that.Seating to relax in restaurant bar are restricted.Food excellent would stay again.

Eating was a bit close to everyone else! I remembered it seeming a bit more laid back before. But I'm a fussy man
Bed and sofa was super comfy. Right near the beach. Afternoon tea thrown in was great. Food good , ace desert

The design of hotel and everything in it.

Lovely food, friendly and helpful staff! Beautiful location. Would return!

Some paintwork in room could do with retouching.....
Relaxed dining. Interesting & well cooked tasting menu. Slick service. Breakfast choices comprehensive even without cooked options. Comfortable rooms with unexpected touches.. Superb location but to be fair we knew that already!

The view fom
The staff where very helpful and keen to make your stay enjoyable. The restaurant was lovely, good food service and decor.
8 December 2014
The accommodation was not on par with the service and food. The corridor leading to all the rooms was in desperate need of redecoration - paint chips and scuff marks and a very well worn carpet. The bedroom and bathroom were also looking a little tired and need of a lick of paint. So in sharp contras to the restaurant decor and reception.
Staff were very welcoming on arrival as well as in the restaurant - although it was a bit over the top being asked at every course by 2 different staff if everything was ok. The food was very good and the wine pairing recommendations were spot on.

They often stay in upmarket hotels and found The Gallivant of an excellent standard. We visited them in the morning for breakfast and found, as they had previously said, that the staff were extremely helpful. The breakfast was great - good quality local ingredients and we liked the 'Recovery station' with all the components of a Bloody Mary plus Alka Seltzer - we didn't need it but it did make us smile. Many thanks.

Closeness to the beach, informality.
11 November 2014
Although it made for some great giggle material, we could hear the couple next door playing a game of very loud twister. I think they both won, the walls might be a little thin though.
It was a warm welcome at The Gallivant. The style of the room was original and although it was wet outside on our stay, we would've made use of the private garden.

Minor point on an otherwise wonderful stay....Could have a sign on the underfloor heating switch. We turned it on by accident and the room got too warm. Didn't realise until the morning.
Everything! Seems to have thought of everything. Afternoon tea and comfy seats with fleece covers and log fire lovely in the winter. Lots of thought gone into the way breakfast was served. Food magnificent - all local. Everyone really helpful. Across the road was the beach where we had a bracing Autumn walk. Loved every minute of it.
