Good location and room. Potential noise problem.

Overall our 3 day stay was satisfactory. A terrific view and location. Great walks across the cliffs to Margate and beyond. Room and bathroom both big and clean. But, O dear, one of those clinging shower curtains and a shower with a fixed head. Unfortunately - as the hotel caters for functions there can be noise. When we reserved our room we were assured that is was situated far from the function area so it would be peaceful. So it was, but we were disturbed by shouting drunken guests in the corridor and in the room opposite at 1 am. We phoned down to the night porter, several times but no reply so we spent a disturbed night. Next day the manager apologised and took 10 per cent of the night's stay, but we would have much preferred a night's sleep to the discount. Not the hotel's fault, but where was the night porter? The service was mixed, ranging from terse and helpful to charming and helpful. Out dinner was alright, freshly prepared. Breakfast ok..the help yourself muesli and ingredients very good, the served option not exceptional.. why is it hardly possible to have decent coffee at most UK hotels? The location of the hotel is at the end of what seems to be a private road so no nearby public transport, but a taxi from Margate, recommended by the receptionist was quick, on time and costs £5. Overall a good and enjoyable stay.

Beautiful Location

Pros: Rooms, vibrancy of bar area, friendly staff. Plenty of car parking
Cons: Maybe a specials board to vary the menu a bit.
Location: Botany Bay is one of several sandy bays in and around Broadstairs. Golf club virtually next door, and the Turner Gallery at Margate is 5 minutes away
Steps from the beach, with a lovely, large bar and dining area. Very nice rooms, some with uninterrupted sea views. Perfect hotel for a chill out.

Beautiful venue

We have stayed here several times and love the views from the Orangery where we enjoyed dinner and breakfast. The food was good and service friendly. In the past we have paid for a "seaview" room - well worth the extra. This time we booked late so didn't expect a view from our room. We were disappointed to find a wooden screen/ wall just a few feet from the window. It obscured a view of rooftops, etc, as intended, but made the room rather dark and a little claustrophobic. We will avoid room 408 in future
