Many reasons actually.
We have a pier, great walks along the seafront - also popular for cyclists, as the area is in general quite flat and safe.
We have 2 castles in walking distance with Dover castle just a few miles away.
Nice shopping center with many quaint family owned/managed shops and cafes.
Indoor swimming pool just 15 minutes away in the adjoining town of Walmer.
Sea fishing (from the beach and pier) - lake fishing (Cotterton), approx. 10 minutes by car.
We have many quality restaurants close at hand, plus some very good public houses with local 'real ales'.

Sadly we have stopped allowing pets stay at our hotel, due to the constant damage caused to our furniture and linen.
We love animals and loved having the majority stay with us, but recently owners have not followed our simple procedures.
It has become costly having to replace linen and damage done to our bedrooms.

No, sadly - Very few hotels have parking facilities in the area, but there are several close bye.
The nearest is just seconds to the rear of our hotel.
The cost is £1.60p per hour, between the hours of 9.00am and 6.00pm (Same charges apply on Sundays).
If you desire a lay in the following morning, you can pay monies into the parking machine after 6.00pm the previous evening - This will allow you up to 3 hours the following morning.

We provide maps of these parking area's at reception or you can e mail us and we'll happily send a copy through to you.

If you do not intend to use your car whilst visiting Deal or rarley use it, you can park in Deal's railway station car park (Opposite Sansbury's Supermarket /Deal municipal car park), as the rate here all day is very reasonable.

Surprisingly, there is 'free' parking on the seafront.
If you drive just 2 minutes along the seafront ( heading towards Sandwich Bay - Away from Dover ), past our hotel and the royal hotel, you'll be able to park (after approx. 7 parking bays - close to public shelter ).

8 minutes to walk back to the Waterfront Hotel.
