5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We stayed here for a long weekend, being one of very few hotels that would allow us to bring our dog. The staff (David and his brother) made us feel very welcome, were friendly and helpful and worked hard to ensure everything ran smoothly.
The hotel is lovely; like being invited into someone's home, with loads of books everywhere, interesting original paintings and posters, and a lovely courtyard garden full of plants.
The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast varied, extensive and delicious and the location was ideal.
We would recommend the hotel and would like to come back in the winter to enjoy the log fires.

Room Tip: rooms at the front have wonderful view over the harbour but tend to be smaller that rooms at the bac...

We stayed here for three nights and only wish we could have stayed longer. The staff were so friendly and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was delicious. We had a wonderful view of the sea in our very nice room. The steps to our room were a little hard on the knees but it was well worth it. Location of hotel was perfect for us as we love to walk and and enjoyed it very much. If we are lucky enough to go there again we would certainly stay here. Loved it!

We spent two nights in this delightful and unique hotel. It benefits from a great location with views across the harbour, and easy access to all nearby facilities. The staff were welcoming, friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was on the small side but was beautifully decorated and appointed, and very comfortable. Breakfast was varied, fresh, extensive and well presented. There was even a space to park the car at the rear, which is unusual for a small sea front hotel. Highly recommended if you appreciate a change from chain type hotels.

Second time my wife and I stayed at this hotel and will definately return again.
The room we had was on the back overlooking the lush courtyard garden,this room was larger than the seafront room we had last time. The beds are so comfy with feather pillows and clean.
The breakfast is fresh cooked to order and there is also a wide choice of cereals,fruit,juices,honey comb ,cakes smoked salmon, cold meats cheeses etc and free newspapers. The free cheese board after 9pm is a nice touch which my wife and I enjoyed with a nice glass of wine from the honesty bar. Love the snug room at the back comfy settee flat screen tv computer loads of books and double doors which led onto the beautiful courtyard garden . Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and it is like you are in a time warp with the gramophone records old fashioned radios and many historic paintings it is certainly not a typical bland modern hotel, it makes the place feel warm and comforting and I imagine the log fires in winter add to that feeling.
The only minus point is the stairs we were on the 3rd floor and there is a 4th floor but there is no lift so this may present a problem to less mobile guests.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back although they do not have a seaview are larger. Request low floor if you have dif...

Friendly and professional welcome. Room tastefully decorated with a seaside theme, four poster bed, lovely little balcony with a view of the harbour. Chocolates on the pillow and good choice of tea and coffees in room. Very clean. Complimentary cheese board in the evening. Amazing choice of old vinyl records to play in the lounge. Excellent cooked breakfast with plenty of continental style options. Ideally located for the town with restaurants even closer. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: It's worth paying the extra for a sea view

My wife and I had a short break in Ramsgate where we stayed at the Royal Harbour Hotel. The location was perfect giving us lovely views over the harbour which at night looked wonderful. Also within about 200 metres of the Royal Harbour were several restaurants all with outside tables overlooking the harbour. We had a meal in the Bon Appetite that represented great value. We started with muscles, followed by cod. I suffer from a gluten intolerance which the chef dealt with easily. Also worth a try is the Churchill Public House. Turn right out of the hotel. The food here was incredibly good value and well prepared.

Turning to the Hotel we were greeted as old friends by the staff. Nothing was too much of a problem for them. Without being over intrusive they frequently checked if we wanted anything or was there anything they could do for us. Larger hotel chains would find it very hard to match the standard of service at the Royal.

Our room was clean thoroughly each day as was the whole hotel. Each evening a complimentary cheeseboard was available with an excellent range of cheeses on offer. Breakfast was a delight. The range of food was very good and for those who like a full fry up this was available. As I said above I suffer from a gluten intolerance which was handle well by the kitchen.

In summary I cannot recommend the Royal Harbour highly enough. It is so pleasing to stay at an hotel which is not part of a bland chain. While some guests may find some of the art work on display rather eclectic I found this to reflect a welcomed personal touch.
