Having looked at previous mixed reviews took a gamble to book the Stade Court for a 2-night family stay whilst we visited the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway.
Must say we were pleasantly surprised. The welcome and overall staff service was excellent, relaxed and friendly. The location is across a quiet road to the shingle beach, and although there is a small car park, there's plenty of free on street parking. The esplanade is quiet as there's none of the usual bars, cafes etc.
Sure, some of the décor needs attention or updating, but our room (406) was more than adequate for our family of four, clean and comfortable. The layout was on two levels with the master double downstairs, and up a narrow staircase to the bathroom and second spacious twin room for the boys. These had their own doors to keep noise levels at a minimum. The room had a lovely view of the beach/sea. A minor point which I should have checked with the staff especially as it was a family room, was that the TV reception didn't appear to pick up CBBC which would have been nice, but not a real problem.
We had bar meals both nights. Reasonable choice with a good kiddies menu as well, well presented, tasty and reasonable prices. Breakfast which was the usual buffet style offered a wide choice of hot and cold and again nicely presented. This was served in their main restaurant which was quite spacious, with pleasant décor and offered lovely views to sea.
There were some thank you cards by reception from previous guests which was a nice touch and seemed to suggest that they pride themselves on offering a good quality of customer service. For what we wanted the Stade Court was ideal and would always stay again should we be back in the area. less
