    Very noisy as it is in the heart of Margate and all the restaurants and pubs are there. But otherwise we had a great stay...

    Honestly every time I come book at the hotel I have the same problem, the cleaners will give you a huge sigh of relief when you tell them to not clean your room on your second stay, the third day is a mission! You will be given an attitude for requesting new linen or asking for a mere sweep in and out. I like the actual hotel it's my first preference but unfortunately I will be telling my Co workers to not book here 1Q

    Some maintenance.

    The toilet door does not close easily. The staff did not refill toilet paper until we asked for more. There were 4 of us at the hotel (with 2 x King size beds) but they only gave us 2 towels. The shower head did not spray water well ... very old shower head.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Saturday night from hell!!

    We tried to book in 25 minutes early as we had to go to a wedding and were told that no rooms were ready and we could only check in at 2pm ie in 25 minutes time. The noise level by other guests was something that i have never experienced before throughout my travels in Africa. The screaming and partying carried on all night long without a thought for other guests. We woke up to no electricity so couldn't even make a cup of coffee ... mind you there was only one sachet of coffee in the caddy. No bathmat, one pillow each .. a very basic offering not worthy of a 3 star rating!!
