We had a overnight stay due to seeing a show at the winter gardens which is about a ten to fifteen minute walk away, the turner gallery is a further five minutes past the winter gardens with the main hub of Margate a further five minutes so is quite convenient for all the main attractions. Our room was very roomy... More

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting family with our 6 month old twins. Despite the hotel being slightly tired and in need of some refurbing tweaks here and there (many of which are already underway) we were made to feel very welcome. Our room had a fabulous view of the sea and the value for money here is fantastic.... More

Stayed with little dog and they have a downstairs room with direct access to the road right across the beach which is ideal. Room was very large and recently renovated. Bit dated. Room was very pleasantly decorated and very big but overall look is a bit tired. Breakfast extremely average.

We arrived late, with a wedding party in full swing, and anticipated a noisy night. However, even though our room was only on the first floor, we entered into an oasis of peace and quiet, with the smell of crisp clean bed linen filling our nostrils. Although the on suite was small, the bedroom was a nice size and the... More

After reading reviews here on this hotel, we were slightly apprehensive as we arrived. We need not have worried, the hotel was really nice, staff exceptional, nice large room with a sea view. Great nights sleep (undisturbed) even though there was a fairly busy road in front of us. Unfortunately we missed breakfast but the reception lady made us really... More

I stayed here for one night as I was working locally, the next morning and needed to get out in good time. Met by a decent reception staff, I was offered a room upgrade for an extra charge and this was appreciated. However, the next morning, there was no one in sight to take my breakfast order. When he finally... More
