Very lucky to have sent a sunny 4 days in Margate. Had a very pleasant stay. Staff on reception and dining room excellent, except one on reception and i'm sure she knows who she is. The breakfast and dinner was good with plenty of choice. Our room was probably not the best in the hotel. Not small but only one... More

We stayed at the Smiths Court Hotel this weekend quite by accident and it was great and is just outside of Margate in a quiet location opposite the Sea. We were going to take our dog and at the last minute we found a sitter. The hotel owner offered us different rooms if we wanted but in the end we... More

The hotel was quite nice but our breakfast wasn't. My wife had scrambled egg with her breakfast which was over dosed with salt and inedible. Another guest complained about an out of date yoghurt- the waitress was told but didn't check the rest of them. The area of Margate it is in is run down.

First impressions are suppose to be the ones that count but this hasn't obviously trickled through to the reception staff who I think may be the owners. The lady needs a personality transplant that should include a smile ! The hotel is an old Victorian property that has been 'modernised' for todays use. The best aspect is the wifi that... More

Was her for very formal evening function and thought it was brilliant. Loved the mix of dinning room and then party rooms. Also the foyer was perfect for relaxing with a drink and chatting to friends. A very well balanced venue. Prices good at the bar. Pianist was excellent, and his dog was ever so friendly.

We paid £95 for a superior double room and were upgraded to an Executive double. Room 5B which has a sea view at the front on the top floor of the hotel. The bed was a lovely four poster and the linen was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Towels were very clean. Large TV on the wall... More

This is our second visit to this hotel with our now 15 month old twins. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms - 4d which was just perfect. Big enough to allow the toddlers to toddle about happily with a separate area to put them to bed, away from our sleeping area and the TV. The bathroom is lovely... More

Don't take a dog, they apparently only allow the dog in the bedroom in spite of telling you when you ring to book that the dog can sit in the bar whilst you eat and drink, (we are responsible dog owners and accept and do not expect to be able to take a dog into the restaurant of any hotel)....
