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

.......if your stay happens to coincide with a wedding party. Very disappointed they could not offer even a sandwich on Saturday afternoon due to the wedding party arriving so my husband had to go out to the local minimart for a snack......... More worrying is that when I checked with them, they asked for my room number which implied had... More

Despite being buffeted by strong on-shore winds, my sea-view ground floor room became snug and warm thanks to good heating and thick curtains. I had booked a single room but was up-graded to a double with bath en-suite, and I passed two restful nights in a very comfortable bed. The hotel was quiet, being out-of-season, apart from a large group... More

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

Just needed a room close to a Christmas part venue, on arrival initial feed back was good e.g. friendly staff nice big room, and breakfast included in price. Unfortunately when you look a little closer, suspicious stains on the chairs in the room, toe nail clippings on floor of shower room, matted collection of dust behind sink, drain in shower... More
