I chose Westbrook Lodge for budget reasons, I did not expect the Ritz at this price. Westbrook Lodge is a traditional old style B&B, close to the beach and with some sea views. It is within walking distance from the station. Margate Sea Front is 10-15 minutes walk, and Winter Gardens are a pleasant 25 minutes walk along the sea... More

The Hotel is not too far from the train station and within sight of the sea-front in a very pleasant area! Alex, the proprietor, immediately made me feel at home and served up a lovely breakfast in the morning. Some rooms have basins but share some facilities but this was no problem as there are several bathrooms. It was a... More

I found this guest house after most of the accommodation further into Margate had already been booked up for a conference. The owner was pleasant and helpful. Clean and tidy. Bit old fashioned but that is probably part of its charm. Breakfast was full English and served promptly. Some rooms have a view of the sea, but in February I... More

I didn't look at the reviews on here before booking, for some reason Google didn't bring TripAdvisor reviews up but instead sent me to Expedia upon a search for hotels in Margate. Margate as a town is well, well beyond its prime and I don't understand why people come here. I chose Margate as a base before my trip to... More

Excellent value for your money, breakfast was a good start for the day. A bit outdated but clean and tidy, nice service, requested an early breakfast and was served promptly. TV reception was poor as image was freezing constantly. Definately will be back as that wasn't a stopper.

Chance taken at last minute and price seemed fair with breakfast included at £65 for a double for the 2 of us per night.. but you can only have a 'full English', anything else has to be paid for and is not good quality. However, it was really so bad in most respects (lack of knowledge on the part of... More

I don't like to write bad reviews, especially when I don't believe the staff serving us were entirely at fault, but clearly there are some fundamental changes that need to be made at this establishment. We had a change of circumstances and managed to book a room last minute on the Friday of a bank holiday weekend. We booked through... More

I think this hotel is perfect for the purpose it was intended . My son can be quite challenging at times and it was wonderful to find a place that made us feel welcome . The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant . Breakfast was altered to our needs , the price was good , room was... More

In 2 words don't bother. We stayed recently for 2 nights, on arrival we were greeted by the most unpleasant man I've ever met. He showed us to the room which was like something out of the 1970's with a very small t.v and free view box that managed to pick up 3 channels. After showering in a grotty shower... More
