    Reviewed 16 September 2007

    We spent four nights here in September, and do not regret having done so. Our room was at least big enough to turn round in, with adequate hanging space, more than adequate drawer space, a well-equipped bathroom and a mini-balcony with an excellent view of the nearby cliff-top and the attractive Botany Bay, with low but interesting chalk cliff, lots of sand, and at low tide loads of rocks with pools, just a short walk away. Admittedly, we spent rather more money for that view, but even without it, you can see the sea very easily from the dining room and bar. The food ranges from satisfactory to excellent, and the bar has a fairly good range of drinks. Lots of parking space. A major plus is the staff, who are efficient, helpful, attentive and very friendly - though we didn't try room service, room supplies of coffee, tea, milk etc. were kept well topped-up, and everything was very clean.

    Back to the situation: being by the sea it's very breezy, but in our experience not unpleasantly so. There is lots of well cared-for grass around - it's excellent dog-walking territory. Golfers will think it's heaven.

    So what's wrong with it? First, it isn't easy to find, though they'll send you exteremely detailed driving directions, which we followed successfully. It is a bit out on a limb: the centre of Broadstairs is a good couple of miles away, and the area is extremely residential, with no shops etc in the immediate vicinity. Also, although the ground floor is very disability-friendly, with plenty of ramps, there is no lift (though the stairs are very gentle), and just three ground floor rooms, all relatively expensive doubles. Over all, it is a little expensive for a hotel of this sort, but it does provide excellent value for money.

    Finally, I don't know why it's filed under "Ramsgate" - it's actually on the Margate side of Broadstairs, a longish way from Ramsgate.

    We definitely look forward to going back there some time.

    On first arrival it does not seem up to much (for the price) but I was pleasantly surprised. Reception very helpful on check in, showed to room (nice touch)….. Booked a Double Deluxe Room – great views, 2 balconies (one with seating). Room was large, very very clean with reproduction furniture but simply decorated.

    Hotel itself is good. Basically a pub atmosphere with decent food, staff helpful and friendly, mix of locals and guest in the bar which make it quite relaxed. This is a decent hotel which is priced fairly. If your looking for a base to explore the coast, the beach is 3 mins from hotel !

    Only let down was the very limited room service – suggest not having breakfast in room ! but other than that no complaints.

    Note – The hotel was really difficult to find so take a map !
