I stayed here for one night while working in Margate you can see it was once a great hotel but sadly it's old and tired now the owner makes the place with her cheerful way I was on business so did not book or pay for the room so cannot comment on value for money

For as much as the owner lady and her lovely little black dog can be nice and welcoming, this is defetly a place to avoid. The rating stars compared to the internatinal standards would be barely 1 star. Everything is extremely tired and dirty. I don't think I need to add more

Beautiful views. Great service. Right next to the beach and centre of town. Comfy rooms. Great shower. And reasonably priced. My wife and I loved staying here. The hotel is charming and old-fashioned and feels like a great example of an old British seaside hotel. Lots of atmosphere and quirky charm!

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
