A beautiful hotel at Margate near the sea

Good place. Good views when at higher floors... The only let down is the fact that as it is privately owned rooms, there is no receptionist. You have to call the owners when you need to check in.

A beautiful hotel for a weekend getaway or just to relax, close to the beach and has stunning views from the roof. The rooms is practical and is basically just to sleep in. It is a pity that the Sky bar on the roof and the actual restaurant in the hotel are no longer in operation as it will help a great deal as all meals must be bought from take aways or u have to eat out.The hotel is very neat and tidy and has secure parking which is a plus. Wifi would surely have been excellent, but at least there is limited DSTV to watch.

This sky bar restaurant-cum-club has been revamped beautifully to cater for a more night of fun and dance. With the Ugu jazz around the corner, this will certainly be a choice for many. It certainly will be a choice those who are looking for a secluded deep house night with a house dj on site.

This is not a 4 star Hotel. Staff are clueless and untrained. The hotel looks reasonable when you look at their photos. The hotel photos is however totally deceiving. The floors are dirty. The rooms smell terrible. There is no security and the furniture is rusted and broken. I would not recommend anyone staying in this hotel.

View to die for --BUT the windows need cleaning. With the sea salt in the air, it leaves a thick layer on the glass giving you a very distorted picture of a blurry horizon. The general set up very sparsely furnished. Clientele very much for the locals. A lot of people were in large groups enjoying a night out. Not rowdy or disturbing to others. The hotel in general looks like it has undergone a major touch up. Beautiful decor upon entrance to reception. The restaurant at the entrance looks very impressive, did not eat there as it was not open at the time. The paintings on the walls very tastefully decorated. The outer view of the hotel is deceptive. A dull grey colour with its name painted on the side of the hotel - gives an impression that it is an old and shabby place. Don't be fooled. Go inside and see for yourself. Ladies at reception very friendly and welcoming.
