In the know

Also need to know:

Dogs are welcome in the rooms outside of the main building; just make sure they’re as friendly as Camber, the owner’s dog with a penchant for licking.The chef runs regular cookery classes: go along with him to meet a supplier and watch what he does with the produce. You’ll then be able to eat it, too. There are boat-to-plate, field-to-plate and shoot-to-plate options on offer. What’s more, guests get a discount.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this East Sussex boutique hotel, and as soon as they've unpacked their wellies and watercolours, a full account of their UK luxury beach break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick postcard from the Gallivant in Camber Sands…

Ever dreamed of waking up with the beach as your doorstep? At the Gallivant, it practically comes true (if you don’t count the concrete patch of road you’ve got to cross first). And it’s not just any beach, it’s Camber Sands, a glorious golden stretch with knee-high grass and bumpy dun

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Beach Bistro is cool and coastal, kitted out in reclaimed driftwood, lots of blue and white, and a healthy smattering of shells. Trevor Hamley heads up this beachy outpost, where fresh catches are cooked to perfection. Try the Dover sole with mustard and caper butter or the cod and clam stew. In summer, the barbecue-toting Beach Café sets up on the deck, serving freshly grilled fish and chargrilled burgers.

Top table:

The beach may be obscured by grassy dunes, but by the window is best.

Last orders:

Breakfast is served between 7am and 10am; lunch is on offer pretty much all day; and dinner starts at 6pm and runs until 9.30pm.

Room service:

Bistro fare and an abridged room service menu are available between 11am and 9pm.

Hotel bar:

Not so much a bar, more of a cosy corner with a couple of sofas in the restaurant. Guests can also retire to the lounge with their drinks for a game of backgammon. If you're feeling patriotic, try the English wine from Chapel Down.
