The Burlington is right outside Margate railway station, and there is limited free parking in the same road. My room was on the top floor, lots of stairs to get there, but with a great view of the beach and the town. The furniture was in good condition, and the room and en-suite very clean. Breakfast isn't an option, despite... More

The location of the hotel is perfect for both guests who are arriving by train or car. The front rooms have a brilliant sea view which is hard to beat and great service. Lovely seating area, clean , tidy and very welcoming. Fantastic value for money. Highly recommended.

The Burlington was a life saver last weekend. We managed to get the last room available, room 9. It was clean, spacious and fresh scented, with all the necessary provisions. We met Richard, the proprietor, who is really nice, and welcoming. We received really good service, and minus a breakfast, which is not available, I was completely satisfied.

I have been coming to the hotel for about a year now my room has always been verry clean. Richard and Pauline are verry welcoming the hotel. The hotel is right on the beach and a 5 minute walk from town highly recommend the hotel to anyone

I recently stayed at The Burlington and was so happy with Richard and Pauline's hospitality! The location is perfect for access to the beach, the high street and the Turner Contemporary. The rooms were cozy and the breakfast was very good. My only wish is that I could have made a pre-booked online reservation, but other than that this is... More

Very nice atmosphere. Very positive place to stay. The staff is really professional in what they are doing. It was nice to stay in a place like that after a long flight from Ukraine.i really recommend all the people who pass by that place to check it out

Unfortunately this guests vehicle was damaged whilst staying with us, as soon as he discovered his car was damaged, he ran into the hotel and demanded I stopped what I was doing, to... More

Turned up at the burlington rather desperate after the place we originally booked was appalling. Richard was very accommodating & didn't even want cash up front. Nice clean and well serviced room. Many thanks
