    Great location and beautifully decorated! Clean and attractive, modern but cosy! Friendly staff. Dog friendly. Delicious food and excellent breakfast! Tea and basic breakfast included in the room rate.

    They DO NOT have any food options at all for children or a simpler food choice!! Both the dinner menu and breakfast are sophisticated (and excellent) menus but not at all child friendly (we took 2 girls ages 13 and 16 who generally aren’t too fussy but it was really difficult!!) The dog rate differs on size of dog!! We were quoted £25 per dog but charged £35 after pointing this out the whole fee was waived as they wanted us to be ‘happy guests’! (We’d been totally happy to pay the £25)

    The room was lovely and staff very helpful.

    The room said it had a breakfast included in the rate but it was a continental breakfast and there was an extra charge for English breakfast.The manager was very kind and waived the charge as said it was not very clear on the info we had.

    Very pleasant staff and decor. Superb food in restaurant.

    Breakfast was disappointing. For this price I would not expect to have to pay extra £4.50 for an egg. As a diabetic, the continental breakfast had very little that wasn't based on carbs. The wine was incredibly expensive.

    Warm welcome. Friendly and helpful staff. Bright spotlessly clean room. Comfortable Queen sized bed with crisp linen sheets. Comfy bath robes. Large white towels. Lovely smelling natural toiletries. The bedroom opened out onto a sweet garden area with table, chairs and deck chairs. Peaceful nights. No noise or light pollution. Wonderful long walks on Camber Sands. Returning to a log fire, tea and delicious home made cake laid out for guests. The Gallivant is a wonderful home from home with a relaxed vibe and exceptional service. The staff even dried off my jacket in the drier after it got soaked in the rain. I had a wonderful time and I’m looking forward to my next visit.

    I was disappointed by the fact that little thought has been given to vegetarian / vegan options on the lunch / dinner menus.
