  • "Total lack of interest in customer care."

    No consideration for the fact that costumer circumstances had changed since pandemic. Only consideration is maximising Sykes profits, as with rearranged bookings last year . Booking with Sykes over last 12 months or so has been too stressful. We will not use again and advise others not to either.

  • "The house was fantastic, amazing sea views and locality to the beach and 'The Lazy Shack'."

    Hythe is a lovely unspoilt seaside town and the house was a perfect base to stay for the week. Thank you.

  • "We had such a lovely week at Ocean Gateway - helped by a week of gorgeous sunny weather."

    The house itself is positioned in a great place, so close to the beach and with lovely views from the upper two floors. It was so lovely to wake up to a gorgeous sea view every morning. The house is lovely, very clean and with everything we needed for a great holiday, and easy walking distance to the centre of Hythe for shops and restaurants.

  • "Fabulous week at Ocean Gateway."

    Property is lovely with all the facilities needed and spotlessly clean. Didn't realise from description that there were apartments in front and behind, although this didn't detract from the great time we had - a quiet seaside location within walking distance of shops and variety of restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend the Lazy Shack over the road which was a family run cafe where the food was great and everyone so friendly and welcoming. Rusty table and chair on outside patio which needs to be disposed of and a rusty bird cage decoration outside which also does nothing for the property. No amount of studying the instruction manual could we get the grill to work, but as we ate out every day was not a big problem. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "7 Ocean Gateway is a lovely modern house and being over 4 floors was quite quirky and is 30seconds away from the beach."

    It had excellent facilities and was fully equipped with everything you might need. The house was lacking any blinds or curtains in the master bedroom on the 4th floor which was frustrating for privacy and when trying to sleep, particularly when the sun starts to rise! We also found the lounge sofas really frustrating as the cushions are removable and become dislodged constantly. The kitchen could do with a recycling bin for cardboard and plastics etc. Other than these minor glitches we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to others.

    We had a great week hunkering down and enjoying the sea front and trips to Folkestone, Dungeness and Sandgate

  • "A clean and well equipped house but as this property is over 4 floors there are a lot of stairs to climb and holiday-makers need to bear this in mind when booking the house."

    The house was clean and well appointed with a large kitchen area, The property caters for 6no people but there are only two sofas and 6 people on these would be a tight squeeze there were no other comfy chairs to sit on the house needs either larger sofas or two airchairs .The kitchen had all the cooking utensils required and more than enough glasses & plates, The Neff dishwasher had no salt or rinse aid and was completely empty of both and when we filled up the machine at our expense with salt & rinse aid it was obvious that the machine had not been filled in months, The garden at the back was small and overlooked by all the other house at the rear of the property so there was no privacy, This area was more a "yard" than a garden, ok if you wanted to barbecue but not much else .The undercroft car parking space was not very wide and a large 4x4 would struggle to park, The property was ideally situated for the pebble beach (no sand for young children ) Hythe as a town was well served by a Waitrose & Sainsburys supermarket and a delightful old fashioned High Street with plenty of pubs and restaurants also plenty of parking at £1.20 per hour The "jewel in the crown" is the Royal Military Canal with lovely walks and boats for hire,

  • "The holiday home was absolutely amazing."

    The furnishings and decor was beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. The little instruction notes around the house were extremely helpful and very much appreciated. The location of the house was so peaceful and serene, it made our mini little break even more enjoyable and memorable.

    The position is great for the beach and the Lazy Shack. Great that there is parking and great information on how to locate.

  • "Family had a great time in this very well equipped and comfortable house."

    The standard of cleanliness and communication was excellent, and the facilities were high quality. The position, right next to the beach was great. Out the front door, turn left and less than 50 m brings you to the beach. You can park two cars at the front, with further street parking round the corner. The sea views from the upper two floors were appreciated.

  • "Good situation."

    Close to the sea and the Lazy Shack. Unfortunately we were given the wrong number for the keybox. So it took a long time to resolve the issue which involved phoning the owner in Spain.

  • "The property is well maintained, fairly new with excellent views out to sea."

    We all enjoyed our stay although not being tec minded it did take us a while to work out how to use the cooker, TV (with Sky Box) and shower. The nearby shooting range did not cause a problem although the recorded voice shouting about being recorded on CCTV was a trifle irritating when parking the car. Only small issues really and didn't spoil a very good holiday.

  • "Great location, lovely to have the sea view & Griggs for Breakfast or Brunch only a 2 minute walk."

    The accommodation was spotlessly clean on our arrival, the communal areas were comfortable & sociable for 6 of us (all adults) Each bedroom was super comfortable & 3 bathrooms meant there were never any queues. If you’re a light sleeper on light mornings then eye masks will be useful if you want a lie in. Aldi & Waitrose are both walkable (but for a big shop take a car or several people to carry shopping bags!) There are also a great selection of restaurants & pubs serving food, if you don’t wish to use the very good cooking facilities in number 7(add a large casserole pot/saucepan along with sharp knives & it’d be excellent!) Hythe has a wealth of British history to discover, and with the train to Dungeness coupled with walks along the coast & inland we’d definitely like to return to see more of it & no 7 Ocean Gateway is ideally positioned to make the most of this area.

About the location


Folkestone 4.3miles; Channel Tunnel 4 miles; Dymchurch 6 miles; Dover 13 miles, Canterbury 20 miles.

Hythe is one of the five original Cinque Ports identifed by Edward the Confesssor as ports that would provide ships and sailors to protect this part of the English coastline from invaders, and in exchange the towns would retain all legal fees assigned in court cases. Of course this made these towns far more prosperous than most towns of the same size, and the result of this can still be seen by visitors when visiting Hythe. Running through the centre of the town is The Royal Military Canal. This was dug during the Napoleonic era as a defensive measure against possible French invasion. Now this lovey waterway is more popular with walkers and those taking a break from work; the grassy banks are a delightful place to picnic or sit and read. You can even hire a rowing boat and row yourself along the Canal and this unique part of Kent. A five minute stroll from the town and you will find yourself on the sea front. This wide promenade overlooks a long stretch of beach, with views over the English Channel to France, it is ideal for a summer picnic and safe bathing. Hythe offers visitors so much with golf, tennis, riding, bowls, squash, boating, windsurfing, freshwater and sea angling all available. Romney Marsh lies west of the town and can be explored by foot, car, bicycle or using the world's smallest public railway. Hythe is the eastern terminus for the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway, so why not climb aboard and alight at Dungeness where you can visit the nature reserve, explore the lighthouse, and perhaps get a chance to see some painters and artists at work, before returning by the narrow gauge railway back to the delights of Hythe.
