I stayed here one night - had dog with me so unfortunately could not book a Premium room. However my room was perfectly adequate, comfortable and nice bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities included.
The hotel is in Kingsgate, 10 minutes drive outside Broadstairs. I did find hotel quite hard to find but it is actually at the bottom of Kingsgate Avenue. Satnav took me all over the place when I typed in "Marine Drive".
The hotel has a big bar and restaurant - usual pub grub. Buy food/drinks at the bar, pay, get a number for your table etc. It wasn't high quality food but it was reasonable and plentiful. Not much else to do in the hotel itself.
The staff were all very friendly and helpfu;.
This area is very residential - hundreds of houses in Kingsgate - a lot are obviously rented holiday homes. It seems to be prime cycling and dog walking territory. Beautiful views and super coastal walks.
All in all I would recommend the hotel. It is a little old fashioned - especially bar and restaurant area but nevertheless does what it says on the tin.
