8/10 Very good

Hotel is very good, but walls are extremely thin. Could hear parts of conversation next door, plus noisy children running around. Tried to move rooms, but the hotel was full. Everything else in hotel was good, apart from access to room was through a function room. This was occupied on Saturday evening, so access to room was from walking outside and around hotel and in via a fire escape door.

Nice hotel
Very nice location and next to the beach and Kingsgate Bay Sea Arch. Although the hotel is aged but general condition is good. I can see some staffs have passion but some not so that the comments are at two ends

A great base to explore Thanet.
Comfortable venue for a base to explore Thanet: great views overlooking the sea and beach of Botany Bay. Evening dining was solid. Cooked breakfast was very good, though the non-cooked options were a little sparse (essentially comprising a number of cereal selection boxes and toast, which - while a nice holiday change - might benefit from additional options, expense permitting). Staff were very friendly and helpful. While neither guest in my party had any accessibility/mobility issues, I did not see a lift at the property, so something to consider if a guest is mobility-impaired. Nevertheless, a great few days in a very pleasant venue - thanks for having us!
