“No need to worry....”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Having read previous reviews about this hotel I was really concerned, but as it was the only hotel that had a room available - I had no choice. I had booked a family room for my husband, son and myself. We arrived and managed to get parked immediately outside, free from 6pm to 8am. The receptionist was extremely pleasant, polite and professional. She answered all my questions, put me at ease about the noise etc. Our room was very large, a double bed, single bed, wardrobe, 3 bedside cabinets, chest of drawers and a tv. The bathroom was full size. Yes the hotel is a bit old and dated - but it is very clean. There was also air-con in the room and tea making facilities. There was a bit of noise, but it was Saturday afternoon and the football was on. There was a small fair across the road (which my son and I both enjoyed). We ate in the restaurant - 66 - and it was fabulous. We had a very good night sleep - and could not hear the noise from outside at all. Our breakfast was in the other restaurant attached to the hotel, and again it was fantastic! Every member of staff from the reception desk to the barstaff, waitresses, and cleaners acknowledged us, and they were all friendly and pleasant. I have not given 5 stars because our double bed was a bit on the small side, and there is no lift. We will definitely go back again.

Hotel right on the Harbour with fantastic view from our room with 3 windows. Very clean room. Staff very friendly and helpful when questions were asked. The main road is nearby where you can get the bus to other cities. Town centre and bars also close by.

Room Tip: The sea view room was excellent with 3 windows

We decided to go to Ramsgate on Sunday and decided to stay so managed to book this Hotel. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need. Breakfast was included in the very reasonable price and was lovely. The main thing that stood out was that everyone who worked either in the hotel/bar or breakfast room were extremely friendly. Would definitely stay again.

A work colleague organised the Oak Hotel as accomodation for a meeting in Broadstairs.
Parking is a problem though fortunately I managed to squeeze in post 7pm on the road in front of the habour. the hotel itself could do with a good lick of paint to freshen it up.
inside it was clean enough and the receptionist was pleasant enough.
however the room I ended up in (204) was not much bigger than a box and had no air-con. I couldnt keep the window open as the hotel extractor was going full blast outside the window all night long. not the best view either!
The room was clean, as was the linen.
the hotel bar was decent as was the restaurant, studio 66 which I shall review independently.
Therefore overall it was overpriced for the quality of the room and general appearance.

Room Tip: Midweek try and get a sea view, weekend unless you're a night owl avoid as clubs surrounding wil...

The hotel has a good location immediately overlooking Ramsgate marina and close to a sandy beach. It is also in an area of bars and restaurants which is alive in the evening, and well into the night! If you are looking for a quiet spot and a good night's sleep....look elsewhere! Our room overlooked the marina and the revellers! It was a case of if you can't beat them, join them! The hotel staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was quite large, comfortable and well equipped with and en suite including a Jacuzzi bath and shower. The shower flow was rather slow and lacked thermostatic control. There was a cooling fan in the room, which was very welcome.

Room Tip: Our room had a sea view and was of generous size with a great view, but inevitably noisy on a Friday...

Booked for the sea view, could not fault room or view. BUT no warning of the nose till 3am with the bar next door. Boom... Boom.... Boom..... To make matters worse on the Saturday night the hotel had a function on, no sound proofing on the room.... Laying in bed at 23:00 could clearly hear every word the DJ was saying.... only good think was it was decent music.... It did end at midnight but again there was no pre-warning of this. If you wish to party till 3 in the morning then this is for you....

The hotel is nicer than it appears from the outside where it could definitely use a coat of paint. The room was small but perfectly nice with good facilities and very clean. The shower had good water pressure which is always a plus and the provided toiletries were nice. However, when we arrived back at the room after a late dinner at around 11pm it became clear that as other reviews have said getting a good nights sleep was going to be a bit difficult. There is a clearly popular bar right next door which on Fridays and Saturdays is open until 3am and the bass from the music was very loud and it was not turned down at any point until then. I know this is not the fault of the hotel but it did really detract from our stay. Perhaps in the long term the hotel needs to look into upgrading its windows or coming up with some other solution to improve sound insulation because looking at the other reviews (which we didn't do before we booked) indicates that this is a common problem among guests. It is unfortunate that this noise issue affected what would otherwise have been a very pleasant stay.
