“Great little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

We stayed here for a few nights over Easter.
The room had a wonderful view and it was very clean and tidy.
There is no lift and the stairs are steep to climb, quite hardword when you are tired!
Breakfast was lovely and the service was brilliant!
A nice little find.

This was our tenth visit to The Royal Harbour. It's like spending time with a good friend - welcoming, warm, comfortable and interesting. Chain hotels are fine but give me the books, the stack of vinyl (and turntable), and the open fire at the Harbour any day. Lovely cooked breakfast, too. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

This Hotel is wonderful! We stayed in room 4 (the suite) what a lovely room, the room was big, the shower was big (my husband is 6 foot 5 inches and for the first time was able to stand properly under a shower) the bed was huge and the view from the balcony was wonderful, and on top of all this there is an open fire in the room that you can request to be lit. The breakfasts are tasty with lots of choice in variety and quantity (hence our expanded waist line) The lounge is homely , comfortable and with an open fire and candles lit in the evening is cosy. Everyone working here are friendly and helpful ready to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Room Tip: balcony rooms for a wonderful view

This B&B has Maxwell 'Cashmere' China and Down Duvets. There is a portrait of The Queen and copies of the Daily Mail. People use the lounge because many of the rooms are tiny and the corridors are cold. It's for 'People Like Us'. Others may find the lack of car parking, the poor bathrooms,the lack of linen change and the very self service breakfast (assemble your own drinks) surprising at this price level. Most seem to love it, for others the Seafront Travel Lodge is better value and almost as well located. Loves Dogs!

The staff was super friendly and helpful. I was very warmly welcomed and any concerns or questions were quickly handled by the outstanding staff member. Great location overlooking the harbor. The single room I had booked was very small but they changed me to a double room wit no problem which was fine.

As a frequent business traveler, I am more used to big hotels than small quirky ones. That being said, I would stay here again. There are no phones or alarm clocks in the rooms, but the wifi connection was good. Lots of good restaurants nearby. It's even a short walk to the beach if you're there in summer.

The staff really stands out here and goes out of their way to take care of you.

Room Tip: The single room I was first put into was tiny, I mean really tiny! Definitely book a double room if...

We visited Ramsgate on the 17/18th April to visit Pugin's home and the Church he designed.
This hotel is a real gem and quite quirky. Well positioned for the town centre and restaurants. Good views.
Very friendly and would go again.

Everything about this hotel from the tea china in the bedroom to the sea views and professional, helpful, personable staff (David and Jill) was super cool - but not in a stuffy, impersonal, try hard, generic kind of way... in a homely, welcoming, relaxed, nice place to be kind of way. My only wish was that we could have stayed another night, and spent the evening by the fire in the lounge at the honesty bar and maybe listening to an old record or two.
