We had a lovely stay at the Sands Hotel - we booked a one night stay as a treat after our wedding. Even though we had reserved a standard room, the friendly receptionist offered us a complimentary upgrade to one of the larger sea view rooms when we arrived. The room had a lovely balcony, huge flat screen TV with... More

I saw the Sands Hotel on Booking.Com, I had never been to Margate, the hotel looked pretty, there was a room available with a balcony overlooking the sea so, on a whim, I booked for the Easter long weekend. Margate is fabulous. It is quirky and welcoming, there is plenty to do and it has some seriously good restaurants. Staying... More

Lovely comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated in a contemporary way with a beautiful view over the bay. All the staff are happy to help you. Had lunch when we arrived which was very tasty and well cooked and presented. Would definitely come and stay again.

This was our second visit to The Sands and once again we had a really lovely time. We arrived in time for a wonderful tea, then a walk to work up to a thoroughly tasty dinner! Our beautifully designed room and bathroom looked right over the magnificent bay glittering in sunshine on Monday morning. The view from the roof top... More

Took family for an evening meal and was very impressed. Excellent food and service. My partner and brother in law had the beef, my Sister in law had salmon and crab and I had the beetroot risotto, all dishes were beautifully cooked and presented. The service was faultless and to make our evening perfect we had a window table where... More

A rather special hotel made even better by the staff who were all engaged, friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. We had a meal in the restaurant and thought the quality was really high and that the ingredients were very well put together. Breakfasts were also excellent.

Everything you would expect from a boutique hotel - a real boutique hotel, not one in name only - which has been lovingly restored and thoughtfully designed throughout - including little extra touches in the room and bathroom. Service was impeccable from the receptionist showing us to our room in person and explaining details of the hotel, to the service... More

Delightful hotel, loved the decor. Very comfortable and spacious bedroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had dinner and breakfast, and food was very tasty although not a huge choice on the menu. We would go back again.

An excellent hotel. For us it was very expensive but the hotel was well worth it. The hotel was very nicely decorated, very central, great food in the restaurant and lovely sea views. If you want to splash out this is the place to go. Lovely views and comfy outdoor sofas on the roof terrace, a great spot for a... More
