          Top location on the marina and harbour of margate, great and fresh spec, very friendly and helpful staff. Close to old town and great little bars and gelato shops near by. Will come back as soon as I get back to Margate

          Nice hotel on Margate seafront. Lovely rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast choice and friendly staff. Modern building and nice design touches in a traditional building shell. Handy for train station, the beach, Dreamland and Turner gallery. If in Margate, visit the Sands Hotel. Recommended.
