My Title refers to Margate in General not the Hotel. I have never been before and the reason we decided to go was I wanted a cheap B&B near the sea and so Margate it was!

The Hotel is a bit frayed around the edges but I have to say I have no complaints about it at all. The staff are all very friendly, the night porter could be the spitting image of Mr Burns from The Simpsons! The Double Room I stayed in was large clean and comfy and the shower hot. Loads of choice for Breakfast including Cereal, fruit and a Fry Up.

It was quite sad really as Like Margate itself it's just struggling to survive. You can see where in it's hayday it was a thriving hotel and a thriving resort. There are a few little gems in Margate though, the Beach is Lovely, the old Town has some good pubs and independent restaurants and I totally recommend the Curry house Cinnamon for one of the best curries I have ever had!

I hope it improves in time, would be a shame to see Margate fade away.

A great budget hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and my single room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The shower was hot - and very welcome after a soaking wet evening at the Sound Island Festival in Quex Park. I enjoyed breakfast the next morning, and the fresh coffee was an added surprise. I have paid more at other hotels for a lot less. Thank you everyone at The Glenwood for making our stay so enjoyable.

The staff working there are very friendly, helpful and polite.
The rooms are very clean and presentable.
Good value for money.

Only downside was the nighttime noise of the yobs in the street. No fault of the hotel though.
