My parther and I stayed overnight in June. Our room was a double and had a balcony and a sea view. We both rated the hotel very highly.
The staff are pleasant and friendly. The interior is full of character and rather charming with three downstairs rooms available to visitors to relax in which almost make you feel like you are in your own living room. Sea views are unobstructed although there is a road right outside so some road noise is a possibility although it didn't distrub us. Location wise, it is somewhat hit-and-miss if you need to park your own vehicle due to some local parking restrictions (double-yellows) but we were able to find a space not far from the hotel and it is easy to find being on the sea front and close to the harbour & Ramsgate local shopping.
Our room was a "double" but was really a very small room with a double bed and a tiny shower/toilet room (no bath). However, it was perfectly adequate for an overnight stay being immaculately clean, comfortable and again full of character which seems to be the general theme of the hotel. The room had a nice modern television, tea and coffee making facilites (with loads of supplies) and free internet. The room rate included breakfast which was quite generous as one could have cereal, toast and a full english all in one sitting. In addition, the hotel offers a complimentary cheese and biscuits table in the evening.
Although fairly pricy, we both felt it was worth the extra expense over chain hotel as the decor and ambience made us both feel good about staying there. I recommend this hotel to anyone who isn't on a very strict budget.
Rated as 4 stars out of 5 overall due to the small room size and higher-than-average prices.
