A great place to visit when in Margate, for sure!!
I really enjoyed my stay. The staff service is great. The food was well prepared too. The hotel is easily accessible. Has all the sports channels I like watching soccer on. Happiness! However, there is no swimming pools to cool off at.

Value for our money!
Enjoyed our stay was a lovely short relaxing weekend away from home. Everything was within our reach. Food was reasonably priced at Skyroof restaurant. The breakfast offered was perfect and very filling, with lovely staff working in Relish restaurant (all very pleasant and helpful). Overall our stay was value for money. Thank you (will definitely be back)
