My partner and I recently visited. The town was fully booked and we were lucky to find a room here for a night. However. This is where our luck run out. Pulling up to the run down hotel amid a see of equally run down shops and houses was a little alarming considering the £80 we paid for a room,... More

This large Victorian hotel, with a magnificent seafront location, would once have been the grandest in Margate. Unfortunately the years and changes of use have taken their toll, but at the rates they charge it is perfect for those looking for a bit of style on a budget.

I have stayed at this hotel many times as I visit Margate regularly and wouldn't stay anywhere else! The manageress is very helpful and friendly,stunning views of the beach and the rooms are spotless,the Nayland Rock is exactly how a seaside hotel should be.

I went to the Nayland Rock recently with a friend, largely out of curiosity, as this imposing hotel that greets you as you come into Margate looks like it was once very grand. We were greeted warmly and welcomed into the splendidly sized dining terrace overlooking what has to be one of the finest coastal views in the area. It... More

Not bad, considering the rates. It is located just a few steps from the beach. It is quiet and friendly. The manager is very accommodating. It all depnds on what you are looking for, but if you want to get away from it all, that is the place. You cannot ask for more.
