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 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...

Disappointing stay after reading other glowing reviews. The feeble shower suddenly went cold after a few mins. Owners claimed that never happened before, but all electric showers do this when they become furred up.
