Great location, near the train station and only a short walk to Margate town and beach. Buses to Westgate and Canterbury leave from stop about a minute away. Very nice owners, and am pleased to say that despite the UKIP and 'Vote Leave' nature of Thanet we suffered no racism either at the hotel or in Margate itself. Prior to... More

We just spent a weekend in Margate and the weather was pretty good! This is a family-run hotel, so it's small and perfectly located next to the sea-front. The couple who run it were very helpful and warm, the full English breakfast sets you up for the day, and the room was comfortable and clean. They even let us leave... More

The hotel is really close to the station and just 10 minutes from the city centre, which you can reach by a beautiful stroll on the beach promenade. The couple who manage it is really friendly and welcoming, they take really good care of the hotel which is spotless clean. The breakfast is abundant and made fresh for you (served... More

Within easy walking distance of the station and town centre, I wish the owners much success with their business. A traditional B&B which maybe could benefit from having more rooms which could be twin bedded being able to convert into a double.

I had travelled down to Margate for a funeral and booked for two nights. The hotel was very clean. The room I had was small but had everything as advertised. The residents lounge was a good size and very comfortable. The breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Served on a hot plate beautifully cooked. The hotel is situated just a... More

First time in Margate and I'm glad it was here. You just can't go wrong. Lovely hosts, superb location on the beach front, excellent breakfast, comfy rooms and just a stones throw from the train station. When I come back to Margate I will be staying here!

My husband and I were looking for a quaint and comfortable hotel to stay in while visiting England. We found just that at the Somerville. The owners were very accommodating and prepared us a wonderful English breakfast every morning. The view of the ocean was spectacular. The weather was lovely for October and we were able to take nice long... More

First visit to Margate was full of all kind of surprises. What a beautiful victorian decor in this lovely hotel. The rooms are well kept, and there is a beautiful view of the English Channel from the front parlor window. And the english breakfast, well it was more than enough. The owners are extremely friendly, and lovely to talk with.... More

Good location 1 minute from the train station and the beach. Lovely hosts, incredibly friendly. The room was clean and perfectly formed. Our only gripe was the shower which really was bad as it went from very hot to very cold, with no inbetween unfortunately. And we also thought the price was a bit too high. Breakfast is worth a...

We booked here because it was not advertised on late rooms or booking.com etc. Margate was very popular in it's hay day. I can't wait for the re opening of dream land in 2015 which will be A revival of one of the UK's best-loved amusement parks with a heritage story to tell. The Somerville hotel was exactly what we...
