We stayed here for two nights, our room was on the top floor, very simple but very cosy. This is a quaint friendly hotel with lots of character and charm, as it's an old (but very well maintained) building expect a few creaking floor boards and charming features but this just added to our visit and made us feel at...

We stayed one night in the Hotel which is small but in a quiet safe location. We were on the third floor and the last flight of stairs are quite steep so I would check which room you have before travelling if you have any mobility issues. Room was clean and comfortable ok for short stays.Close to all public transport....

Having stayed at the Thanet Hotel many times, as a business traveller I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Relatively central, close to the tube station, in a beautiful building. It's not a luxury stay but the price is really good and with breakfast included, it's one of the better hotel experiences I've had. The owners are really nice people and it...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights to celebrate my wifes birthday. Unfortunately, the owners were away but the assistant manger was both polite and welcoming on our arrival. Our room was on the first floor, regrettably there was no lift but the offer was made to carry our cases. Our room was typically small as was the en...

You can't beat their location, quietness, breakfast, and price! The accommodations aren't fancy or plush, but they are quite adequate and clean. If you want plush, there is a Double Tree nearby, but you'll pay more than double Thanet's rates. This is the third hotel we've stayed at in this neighborhood, and this is the first one that I plan...

We have stayed at the Thanet numerous times over the past several years and it has been consistently good. The location really couldn't be better but over the years Bedford Place has become noisier. We were woken each of the 3 nights in the early hours of the morning by yelling and screaming from drunk people on the road. And...

Stayed here for 3 nights as family of 5 looking for cost effective yet central location. The thanet lived up to expectations of what we expected for what we paid and the kids loved the Harry Potter room (downstairs). Breakfast gives you a chance to meet people as well as start your day off well and there are enough restaurants...
