“Hotel De Ville”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went to Ramsgate for a birthday celebration and stayed here for 2 nights. Simon and Lisa only took it on a few months ago and exrend a very warm welcome. The twin rooms are basic,comfortable and clean and made sure we had everything we needed.They spent the whole weekend raising money for a charity for a local man and so it was very busy. We had hearty breakfasts and all for £45/night for two people! Result! Many thanks, Becky and Rob, South Wales.

we arrived at this supposed 3 star hotel to find they wanted to take money off us for a room already paid for. The person serving us had no clue which room we were staying in, and was trying to charge us twice for the same room.The room cost £80 for two people...if we paid £20 that would have been acceptable for the standard..
We found our room in a cold damp basement . the room was OK in size and had three beds
However the room was poorly decorated shabby and not that clean.
We were over come by the bad fat smell outside our room, which was next to the kitchen. We were woken up very early ,after a late night out by hearing the chef coughing and could hear the eggs cracking as cooked them...
frankly this is a 1 star hotel with a kettle but you could not get water into because the tap didn't not work.
Our beds felt damp and the room smelt damp. We could not sleep because we had plastic sheets on our beds and and the beds were awful( and very squeeky). It was so unclean, we did not even bother to shower . i wish i had stayed in premiere inn or travelodge.
The water did not work on the cold tap, it dribbled to slowly to clean your teeth.
i never made bad reviews about places i am generally honest
i found the place creepy, as a woman staying there ,and it was frankly worse than fawlty towers. We declined breakfast on the bad fat smell, and the fact we could see the kitchen from our room! and because our room was so poor this did not make us change out opinion on the food so cannot comment on the quality.

The hotel is not located in a particularly nice area. The rooms themselves are underneath a pub and are accessed either through the kitchen or via a narrow, dark alley to the side. Due to their location they are incredibly noisy (to the point where subtitles are needed on the TV) until quite late at night. The room was also extraordinarily overpriced - £80 a night. Probably one of the worst places I've ever stayed and best avoided.
