We stayed here for two nights in a family suite consisting of one double and one single bedroom along with a generously sized bathroom. The hotel is like going into a time warp. Tea is served in China teapots with cups and saucers with no mugs in sight, it really was a pleasure. We usually stay in modern hotels and this was a refreshing change. Staff were helpful, polite and welcoming. Breakfast is more than adequate, well cooked and nicely presented. The exterior of the hotel is really pretty with seating on the terrace. An unusual selection of nick nacks to browse through in the museum on the second floor. Rooms were clean and all needs catered for. Would recommend this hotel for a short stay as you travel through Margate.
