My partner and I fell in love with Margate over the summer so chose the resort to stay in for a few days in September. The Somerville Hotel is in the perfect location, minutes from both the station and the beach, yet quiet at night. The owners are a lovely couple who were very friendly. Our room, on the ground...

No criticisms of this business at all, also very competitively...

Great location, near the train station and only a short walk to Margate town and beach. Buses to Westgate and Canterbury leave from stop about a minute away. Very nice owners, and am pleased to say that despite the UKIP and 'Vote Leave' nature of Thanet we suffered no racism either at the hotel or in Margate itself. Prior to...

We just spent a weekend in Margate and the weather was pretty good! This is a family-run hotel, so it's small and perfectly located next to the sea-front. The couple who run it were very helpful and warm, the full English breakfast sets you up for the day, and the room was comfortable and clean. They even let us leave...

The hotel is really close to the station and just 10 minutes from the city centre, which you can reach by a beautiful stroll on the beach promenade. The couple who manage it is really friendly and welcoming, they take really good care of the hotel which is spotless clean. The breakfast is abundant and made fresh for you (served...

Within easy walking distance of the station and town centre, I wish the owners much success with their business. A traditional B&B which maybe could benefit from having more rooms which could be twin bedded being able to convert into a double.

I had travelled down to Margate for a funeral and booked for two nights. The hotel was very clean. The room I had was small but had everything as advertised. The residents lounge was a good size and very comfortable. The breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Served on a hot plate beautifully cooked. The hotel is situated just a...

First time in Margate and I'm glad it was here. You just can't go wrong. Lovely hosts, superb location on the beach front, excellent breakfast, comfy rooms and just a stones throw from the train station. When I come back to Margate I will be staying here!

My husband and I were looking for a quaint and comfortable hotel to stay in while visiting England. We found just that at the Somerville. The owners were very accommodating and prepared us a wonderful English breakfast every morning. The view of the ocean was spectacular. The weather was lovely for October and we were able to take nice long...
