“Appalling”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

The hotel was basic with dated furniture, bedding and decor. The room had not been hoovered and the sink/shower unit dirty. The shower was broken - when I attempted to turn it on, the water ran out of the eletric shower unit/box so I had to use the communal shower! The breakfast room was dark and dingy and I struggled to eat from the cereal bowls, cutlery etc. The quality of the food was basic.
I chose this hotel because it was close to the start of the Thanet 20 mile race I had entered and on a positive note, the staff and manager kindly allowed me to keep the room on until after my run on the day I checked out so that I could have a shower and get changed.
I do not understand how this hotel can have a 3 star rating.

We were part of a wedding group and needed some where close to the town centre , harbour and beach.The Guest house was well located about 5 minutes walk to the Town centre. Service was friendly, old charm. Breakfast was good and too much to finish.

Rooms were adequate but decoration is dated. Unfortunately it was too cold to play Tennis on the central lawn within the square available for Guest use

Small rooms, poorly furnished. Parking outside is close to a nightmare there being little free space and narrow roads make for difficulty in manoevering anyway. The hotel was however clean and warm. Staff seemed remote, and while we were offered a discount at a nearby pub for dinner - as it was not open the only evening we could have benefited, this was not much use. Breakfast in the basement was the highlight of our stay!

Came away with friends for a weekend and was absolutely delighted with the Hotel as I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg like some other hotels demanded in the area. The Hotel is quite old fashioned decor type but comfortable and clean and the food was wow. We liked the balcony room with a sea view. We watched the ferry from Ostende sail in. The seaside and town centre was about 5 minutes walk. Some good night clubs and pubs there!

We are very impressed by the welcome we received following a very difficult journey form the continent. The double room was very warm and had a sea view and a balcony. The land lady, Jane settled us in very well and we were given a pack containing numerous places of interest to visit in Ramsgate.

Breakfast was Delicious and Full English, we were spoilt for choice. The Hotel was nice and clean. We will certainly visit again in the summer.

They claimed to have overbooked and put me in a lesser "sister hotel" hotel round the corner, blaming "system problems". The owner of the other hotel said they were always doing this and he was just a friend doing a favour not a sister hotel. Probably as well, as the very ordinary B&B we ended up with was not as smelly as the Spence Court.

Rooms were very dirty and dusty - toenails included. Unfriendly and quite rude service. A definite lack of communication between the whoever handles online bookings and whoever handles over the phone - one minute was told I hadn't reserved the rooms, next minute I had. Not impressed.
