A lovely hotel that’s set back in time and makes you really appreciate how hotels used to be in Margate .I have been to numerous events and even a book signing.Dont be surprised if you see a Celeb or when wandering the corridors.

Unique, wacky, amazing collection of vintage Edwardiana displayed higgledy-piggledy. A real discovery. Followed by the best ever cream tea.
