This was my second visit to this hotel, so I knew what to expect, having been there just a few weeks before. Both times I found staff on reception to be friendly and efficient.
Again I paid extra (or rather my employer did) to get a suite, which seemed to be a good choice. The room, 201, was clean, recently decorated, well furnished with a comfortable bed. A good range of Freeview TV channels on a big flat screen TV. Mind you, while it was called a suite, the size of it compares with a normal sized hotel room elsewhere. The same applied to the suite I had on the ground floor 2 months ago. A clean bathroom, all fixtures and fittings in good condition.
The hotel is in a quiet setting just across the road from the sea and cliffs. It’s a sea view but within an industrial bay. There is a very good sized car park, a space for every room. As the hotel isn’t in Ramsgate itself (Pegwell is a residential suburb of Ramsgate) the hotel would benefit from indoor leisure facilities, like a gym or small indoor pool, but it’s too small a hotel for such things. At least the adjacent pub that is part of the same business has a pool table and dart board.
I dined in their pub across the road both times. It has a real English pub atmosphere, but with a sea view too. Good pub food and real ale is available at fair prices, which you can charge to your room. This time we also had an impromptu acoustic guitar session from a couple of guests.
Breakfast is served in the pub function room, but it feels like a proper hotel dining room, and again has the panoramic sea view. The breakfast was fine the first time, and even better the second time. Good quality, good sized portions and plenty of choice; all cooked to order and served by a friendly waitress. They even provide the morning papers to read while you wait. Surprisingly the food at breakfast was much better quality than I had at sister hotel The Fayreness in nearby Kingsgate last year.
Pegwell does not have enough for a holiday in itself. That said, I would stay here again for a business trip or overnight break on a longer journey, or a base to explore Kent.
