Just the job for a quiet break. We stayed for 3 nights (3 for the price of 2 offer). The hotel is situated in the perfect area for pubs, restaurants and shops. The staff were very helpful and polite, the room we stayed in was perfect for us with a great view of Ramsgate harbour watching the ferry arriving and departing.. Breakfast was great, as was all the other facilities mentioned in other reviews. We will book this hotel again next time we are in Kent.

We booked this hotel last minute for a short trip down memory lane as I used to work in the area and had not been back for 25 years. On booking, we were told that there was only one room left, and that it was really very small, but we accepted the honest description.
The hotel is a real gem. I am not surprised to find that it has found its way into Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay.
Yes, OK, the room was small as advertised, but we were only staying for one night..It may have been small, but it was lovely, with a grand view. There were books to read, a flat screen tv, tea and coffee, and Gilchrist and Soames toiletries..The Paul Smith picture on the wall was my favourite.
Everywhere was immaculate and clean.
The lounges downstairs were cosy, with loads of glossy mags to read, or DVDs to watch. The internet was also available if needed. The honesty bar was well priced, and had nice wine & a good choice of spirits. The roaring fire was a welcome touch on a very wet and windy night.
The late night cheeseboard for a tempting nibble was also well received.
Unlike Margate, which is a sad reflection of its former self, Ramsgate has undergone a bit of a rejuvenation, with a few new bars and restaurants opening..Harvey's Oyster bar looked great for food, but they don't normally run a bar only service. But it was sooo quiet everywhere!
Back at the hotel, breakfast was an event in itself..we had to wait a little, but it was worth waiting for..very well cooked local fayre, with lots of choice..I think the honeycomb has already been mentioned.
Overall, I don't think I have stayed anywhere that had so many unique little touches. We even had a postcard this morning thanking us for our stay..
We would definitely go back.

We booked the hotel expecting the usual run of the mill rooms and amenities. On arrival it soon became apparent that it had a delightful twist. The public rooms were so filled with unusual art and decor that it made you not want to leave. It was cosy and homely, the lounge had a real log fire, and at night there were tea lights lit all around making a lovely atmosphere. There were also games to play, books to read and even a record player with a large selection of disc's to listen to. You could also help yourself to drinks from the honesty bar. The back to gentler times feel was contrasted by the bang up to date projector and surround sound cinema in the basement. You can look through the collection there or you can bring your own DVD's if you wish, we watched Angels and Demons whilst having a couple of drinks from the honesty bar. The large and bright breakfast room gave you a lovely start to the day and the breakfast was excellent with all the usual things cooked to perfection, there was also a selection of meats, fruit and yoghurts and delicious fresh honey that you remove from the honeycomb yourself. Another lovely touch was the complimentary cheese and biscuits that was laid out in the evenings for if you were feeling peckish later on. Our room was a little cosy but then we only slept in it so it didn't really bother us, it was adequate and the bed was comfortable. The owner and all of the staff were friendly and very helpful. We even received a postcard thanking us for our stay. All in all we had a lovely stay and will definately be back to stay at this hotel. Thanks for a lovely holiday. Well recommended.

As we did not know the Isle of Thanet area of England, my partner and myself decided to have a weekend in Ramsgate.
Saturday drove up to Ramsgate, taking in Whitstable, nice Oysters, Herne Bay, Margate, very run down and Broadstairs, on the way.
We had booked two nights B/B in the Royal Harbour Hotel in a room with a real fireplace, overlooking the Marina / Harbour. The hotel was very old worldly style but comforting. Could not fault this place in any respect, as the service was impeccable and the breakfast would put most five star establishments to shame.
Ramsgate, for a small town has a lot to offer in the way of pubs and restaurants. We tried the Foy Boat pub which was quiet but very friendly and had an excellent selection of real ales to sample. The Oak pub / hotel was very lively and had a good selection of food on offer. In the evening, we had a lovely value for money meal in the Thai restaurant Surin. The food was really special and exceptionally tasty, in fact the only fault we could find was the cramped seating space at the tables. The other restaurant we tried was the Italian Magnolia, again could not fault the service and you can openly see the kitchen and oven. If any thing the fish portion was small but the taste made up for that.
Things to see and do , not a lot.
We spent a very interesting hour in the Maritime Museum on the Sea Front. A great deal of history can be found here relating to various past Maritime events and it holds lots of artifacts. Canterbury was only twenty five minutes drive away so we 'spent' a happy few hours walking around the shops which are delightful and enterprising. The Cathedral is a must go and see, absolutely magnificent in it's beauty and history.
Considering it was wet and windy during our stay, we made the best of it and we would recommend a weekend stay there.

The hotel would probably have been an ok choice as a couple, passing through for a night in Ramsgate. The lounge is lovely and the breakfast are is good. The hotel location is very good.
BUT, we were recommended to upgrade our budget to get a room with balcony, that was more expensive but has enough space to accomodate a cot for our baby. We therefore built expectations of a lovely large room with sea view. e did have the sea view but the room as so so so tiny. There was just space for a cot, provided by the hotel but so old (70s model) as a mother I felt unsure how clean/ safe it was. then we had to store luggage under the bed and we had just a bit of space on one side of the bed to go through the other side of the room to the balcony. The bathroom was also very very very small.
The lounge was great but people went there to relax and read. You could not hear a fly. So bringing in a baby was not so great and forced us to retreat to our bedroom.
