Thank you for your review of the hotel. The room, the Woodford Suite, is newly refurbished, but has never been an office. We use blinds in a number of our rooms, as well as a range of different lights to try and give each room a different character, and we often make use of a number of quirky crannies (due... More

We are sorry that your stay didn't meet our usual standards, and can only apologise. I know that when you mentioned that there were problems to our receptionist, our staff tried to rectify these problems as soon as possible, but this doesn't change the fact that our high standards were missed. Margate is constantly improving, and we are excited to... More
