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

This is one of the better budget hotels in Margate, and I can highly recommend it. There are forty rooms in this Victorian Tardis, and the place is well set up with a nice little bar and lounge. Most of the staff are very helpful, although I would question whether they truly have a service concept, requests slightly outside of... More

I booked Smith's Court for our annual club Dinner & Dance event in March 2014. No details were left to chance and owners Tony and Abbie were helpful in every way advising, where needed, on all the arrangements (from arrival drinks and table plans, to the sit down dinner and the celebrations after). Our evening went without a hitch and... More

Booked in for 4 night in March on a business trip found the welcome very friendly and helpful. Got directed to my room where I found it warm and very spacious. The ensuite was of a good size and clean. The bar is not to expensive and the food in the orangery is also very good and reasonably priced. Unlike... More

We had booked a room with a sea view and when we arrived we were offered the honeymoon suite for a little extra. A lovely treat and a super bit of luxury. Room was lovely and it was perfect to wake up and open the curtains and see the sea. Free wireless connection, clean room, nicely decorated. Staff were so... More

Stayed one night last week whilst visiting relatives. Had not pre-booked and receptionist was very friendly and helpful and allocated me a very pleasant sea-facing double room. She also made sure that the heating had been turned on in my room for when I returned later that evening. This is my third stay at Smiths Court and I have been... More
