Positive Reviews


Amazing location; contemporary rooms

Guests loved the view of the Margate Sands and Bay right from their rooms. It is also close to some of the old town galleries, beach, shops and good bars. Most of the guests felt that the contemporary décor of rooms was worth a mention. Rooms were clean and very modern with all the basic amenities.


Jazz night; great onsite restaurant and bar

All the guests loved the jazz night that had some great music. Along with delicious food at the onsite restaurant, jazz night created a cheerful ambience which was absolutely loved by the guests. Kids had a great time at the ice cream parlor.


Friendly staff; underfloor heating in bathroom

Staff was very accommodating and helpful as per many guests. They always had a smile on their faces which made the guests feel at home. Bathrooms were spacious with underfloor heating, done up beautifully with rain head showers and lighting alcoves.

Negative Reviews


Troublesome car parking

Many guests were not very happy with the car parking in a council parking passing through an alley. Guests would have appreciated if the hotel had its own car parking. Few guests even felt that it was difficult to find the parking and then walking back to the hotel with the entire luggage.


Slow breakfast service

Few of the guests felt that the breakfast service was rather very slow and were kept waiting for quite some time. They felt that this delay could have been because of the slight lack of training.


Noisy next door pub

Some of the guests had a tough time sleeping at night owing to the noise from the pub next door. They felt that the noise insulation would have been better if the windows were double gazed.
