“What you'd expect in a town”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I booked the Oak fairly last minute for the Easter weekend and managed to grab the last harbour side room. I am glad we got one of these rooms as the view was lovely!

The hotel is in a good location, as it is a short walk from town with bars and shops. it is also a short walk to the bus stop which is great for a cheap trip to Broadstairs (£2.20 return)/Margate.

Broadstairs is also a 40 minute walk along the coast.

The hotel room was nice, although could have had a bit more TLC as some bits were falling apart. The rooms were clean, and we had a maid clean the room in between our 2 night stay. Although, there was a dodgey looking stain on the bed throw which we decided not to use.

The harbor side rooms were loud at night, with music and people talking. Although we had prepared for this because of the reviews and ear plugs seemed to do the job pretty well.

The service in the bar was welcoming, as were the ladies in hotel reception. I found it a bit irritating that there was no one on hotel reception just after 2pm, when 2pm was the check-in time, although someone did arrive after 10 minutes or so.

I couldn't have expected more for the money.

Room Tip: It is worth the small cost of upgrading to a harbour-side room. However, make sure you prepare for t...

We are staying here just overnight, but have been overwhelmed with what we have found. The staff are very friendly, the room is spotless and cosy, the bathroom is bigger than what we have at home!. We have just had dinner in their 66 restaurant and could not fault anything there either. A great selection of starters, mains and puddings, and the young girls who served everyone were very attentive, polite and happy. Will definitely stay here again.

The rooms are very clean & fresh, Room refreshments exceptional, as were the toiletries & gorgeous towels. Great pity that there is no way a lift could be installed as some of the rooms can be a bit of a trek ! Staff very helpful & friendly.My gluten free breakfast in May had been a great disappointment....no alternative bread or sausage offered , limited amount & choice , other places nearby offered better value,so we ate breakfast elsewhere this time.The Hotel meals are a bit expensive !
Still exceptional value for the room though !!

Room Tip: Go for the dearest you can afford as some of the cheaper rooms are noisy & can be slightly claus...

The staff are so welcoming and friendly and ensured we had the perfect valentines day. The rooms are very comfortable and completely spotless and the Meal at restaurant 66 was fantastic. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I stayed in room 301 on new years eve 2013. Really great hotel, and the staff were great. Especially Ash in the bar that night. :) Made to feel really welcome and the chef even seated us and let us chose from the bar menu, even though they had a pre-booked 7 course meal that evening. Cosy warm room, and spotless. Many thanks for a great new year. The rain even stopped for us at midnight.

This hotel is lovely. The staff can't do enough for you. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and are spotlessly clean. The restaurant is brilliant and the breakfast was cooked to order. The hotel's location is amazing too. I really can't find fault with it at all and I really can't understand why this hotel is only a 2*. I'd have thought it was a good 3*. Definitely stay here is you're visiting the beautiful town of Ramsgate.

It's quite a nice hotel with bar attached. I stayed for the bones of a month with work and really felt welcome with Bonny , Alec and the guys in the bar and Tina making it the funnest breakfast every morning. The hotel itself is nice with good Web access . Could do with a spruce up but overall a really good experience.
