One of two things has happened here; maybe I got a room that was the exception in that it had some horrible examples of a lack of cleanliness that other reviewers didn't experience OR maybe the many quite positive reviews aren't what they seem. Just beware is all I'm saying - my experience suggests you can't take a lot of...

Thank you for your review. I was pleased you enjoyed our central location and our full English breakfast. I was very saddened to hear of your main concern. What a shame you did not come and tell us at the time so I could have made immediate investigation - with this in mind it would be very helpful if you...

I found this hotel on Sleeps5.com as we are a family of 5 and at last a hotel that accommodates the average family! We had a large comfortable room in the basement with a double bed and 3 singles. It had a separate toilet and shower room and was spotlessly clean. Great location on a really quiet street just off...

Thank you for your lovely review. I was pleased to hear you found the hotel spotlessly clean and in a good location. Our room for a family of five is indeed very popular as there does not seem to be many rooms for five in the area. I was also really pleased to hear that you felt you had good...

We enjoyed our weekend stay here very much. The hotel itself in on a quiet street, about a 2 minute walk from the British Museum. We found the walk to Covent Garden and St Martin's Theater to be very easy. Inside the hotel is immaculate. The lobby, breakfast room, and our room were all clean. Our room was fine for...

Thank you for your kind review. The scambled eggs and smoked salmon certainly is a firm favourite with our guests. I was pleased to hear that my staff helped you with your luggage as indeed there is no lift as the building is over 200 years old. We hope to welcome you back to the Thanet one day. Best wishes...

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....
