Not the most luxurious of hotels, but for an overnight stay (having Bern to a concert at threw Winter Garden), this was a fantastic place to stay. We had a nice clean room, overlooking the sea, it was nice and quiet and very comfortable. The highlight of the stay was the breakfast! An absolute delight, really good freshly cooked food... More

The hotels tries very hard but just does not quite get it right. The hotel is a bit tired and needs a refit. We had a room at the front which was big spacious with a full kitchen. The bathroom or shower room was far two small and was uncomfortable. The food at times was excellent and then was average... More

I stayed for one night in March as I was attending a meeting in Margate. On arrival I was upgraded to a sea view double room at no extra coast which was most welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and I slept well. However the furniture was very old fashioned and the heater a... More

Arrived at check in to be told that unfortunately the room we had booked four months in advance was not available, and that the one we had been allocated was smaller. On the plus side we were kindly offered a complementary bottle of Prosecco and the use of two champagne glasses and the price of the room had been reduced... More

This was a convenient hotel for visiting the Turner Contemporary and our dog enjoyed the spacious room and fuss from staff. We found the bed comfortable and enjoyed the shower room. The chef made a special effort to make tasty vegan food, taking into account dietary requirements. The squally winter weather had blown a bit of debris into the area... More

We stayed one night. We had originally booked for 2 people but changed to 3 people. When we arrived we were given 2 options as an additional cotbed would cramp our seaview room. The other room faced the court yard but the room was big, airy and beautiful. The bathroom with separate bath and shower was gorgeous to. We opted... More

Stayed at this hotel due to a family event. Hotel a little dated in places but the staff make up for that. I have never been any where before where the staff were that friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend the hotel on staff alone!

Spent 2 nights at this seafront hotel as part of a ladies night package. Wonderful sea view room with so much space and even its own kitchen. Extremely comfy bed! Great food in the Orangery restaurant and super bar snacks (Scampi and chips particularly good). The thing that sets this hotel apart from similar types is the staff. Nothing was... More

I only stayed 1 night, a Sunday, located a slow 10 minute walk from the Winter Gardens so not exactly in the town centre. All the staff were excellent and very helpful. A very good breakfast which sustained me for a long journey home. Excellent value for money and I would certainly use again if visiting the area. Only downside... More
