“A country hotel by the sea.”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

Beautiful hotel full of character. We had a double en suite room with sea view. Beautiful room, spotlessly clean & the view of the sea & harbour was stunning. The staff were so friendly & couldn't do enough for us. We really were made so welcome. The breakfast was superb, never had so much choice of wonderful food. The only downside was having to come home!

We had the most fantastic double room with a four poster withour own balcony looking out over Ramsgate harbour. The little touches of individulity were everywhere. It was a genuinely comfortabel room - a huge bed and lovely sofa. The balcony was lovely and with a beautiful open coal fire in the room. It was ready set for us and all we had to do was light the match. It menat that we coudl keep the window ajar at night (in December!) and we were still warm and cosy at the same time as hearing the faint rinfing of the ropes against mast on the yachts in the harbour - like mountan goats. At breakfast the hotel passed the good fresh coffee, excellent sausage and fresh tomato test with flying colous and there was a fantastic choice fo cold meats, smoked salmon, rye bread, pastries and cereals and eggs cooked anyway you liked. Add to this a help yourself honesty bar and walls covered in great and quirky pictures. Original and witty at every stage. W e had a great meal out too at the Royal harbour brasserie (no relation apparently!) on the end of the harbour arm. Staff were polite, obviously proud of their hotel and couldn't have been more helpful.

Room Tip: We had room no. 4. It couldn't have been better!

I find the reviews of this place puzzling enough to bother to correct the impression, even though it is a couple of years since we stayed. We were house-hunting in Ramsgate and stayed a few nights.

Everything said about the charm, friendliness, view, and honesty bar are true BUT th rooms and thus beds are tiny tiny tiny. Ordinary late Georgian terraced home bedrooms CUT IN TWO by a clumsy divider down the middle to make two tiny bedrooms, and then space hacked out of that for an ensuite. Really, really not pleasant and extremely poor value.

Driving around the Kent coast we came to rest in Ramsgate and decided to stay at the Royal Harbour hotel – what a little gem. The reception was very welcoming. Dave went out of his way to show us the hotel amenities before showing us to our room, number 8. Although a little small, for one night it was more than adequate, clean and comfortable and on the 2nd floor, a view of the sea. Down stairs is spacious, with several rooms to relax and chill out in. Games to enjoy, records to play and an honesty bar. But what topped it was free cheese and biscuits when you returned in the evening. Breakfast was a good spread of cold buffet and/or hot full English. If you ever find yourself in this area, then look to stay at the Royal Harbour Hotel.

An extraordinarily beautiful place with great views of the sea, and where the hundreds of pictures are put together with an artist's eye with enormous care put into their hanging, as with so much in this place. The communal areas are so comfortable that you really want to spend time there - and they create an ambience that means its easy to get into conversation. There are papers music and an eclectic assortment of books

The room we stayed in was fantastic, clean, comfortable, stylish but unfussy and a real delight.

The only disappointment was the breakfast. A great range as others have pointed out but the bacon was hard and the bread was not up to the standard I'd expect from what is in all other areas simply outstanding. My partner found her fruit salad very good - it may just have been an off day or that I was unlucky. Nonetheless in every other aspect this is a real gem.

Managed to find this Gem very late afternoon. Everything was superb, staff efficient, polite, helpfull. Rooms furnished to 5 star standard together with "Honesty Bar".
Full English Breakfast was better than most 5 star Hotels!
No wonder it was voted "Best Small Hotel" 2012.
Dont let this one slip away !!

Room Tip: I imagine all rooms are good. Sea view worth the "extra".

What can I say, from beginning to end this hotel was outstanding, all the small added touches i.e. cheese & biscuits, having your bed covers turn down, just makes this hotel one of the best in the UK.... A stunning view of the harbour which no doubt would look even more amazing in the summer. The staff could not help you enough, they were so friendly and warm.... The lounge was comfy with a beautiful open log fire, making feel like you was home..... Breakfast was perfection, so much choice and the cook breakfast was served piping hot....I just could not fault this hotel and will definitely be returning next year.....
