"Beyond quirky!"
A very unusual place to stay. Quirky in the extreme. Room was good, clean and well appointed though one bed was very soft.
The 'museum' is just very odd, with a collection of strange objects, some of which are quite spooky, e.g the 'golliwogs' (not sure if I can even say that word now), and the stary-eyed mannequins dressed in black. Read less
Likes:
Friendly staff, comfortable room, good location, good breakfast. Loved the lift too. The napery was interesting, as was the Tracey Emin connection.
Dislikes:
No, though would recommend to others with reservation because of the 'museum' and its overbearing presence.

Staying at Walpole Bay Hotel is an event in itself. It has the most welcoming atmosphere and is a great alternative to the multitude of faceless hotels that are so familiar nowadays.
Dislikes:

The lift :)
And the breakfasts.
And the cream tea.
Dislikes:
Burn marks in carpet and lamp that did not work.
Feel this should have been checked/maintained/dealt with before we arrived

Would be nice to have a small fridge in the room.

"Traditional hospitality"
Staff always available, friendly and helpful. Breakfast amazing and staff good. Hotel interesting, provided excellent 'public' areas both inside and out and was relaxing and calm.I hadn't been to Margate for over 30 years, and it was over 60 years since I went to school in Cliftonville so the hotel was in keeping with the emotional nostalgia of my short break!

Dislikes:
Not really - perfect stay at the hotel. Little saddened at Margate being a bit run down in places but hear it's receiving some investment. Disliked racist grafitti along prom near Winter Gardens.

"Interesting place. Lots of unique features"
Our room was very warm. On the last day we discovered that the radiator was perminantly on hot. The weather was warm. There was no breeze with the windows open. The curtains were heavy and insulating. The fan provided was limited to position due to the sockets. I did not sleep well. On the first night we ate in the restaurant. This was a mistake as there was a function booked. We waited an hour and a half to eat. The waiter tried to serve us someone else's order and was quite brusk with me. Read less

The same waiter did not offer coffee or tea (I had to ask with our first breakfast nor did he offer the poached or fried variety of eggs. We heard a waitress offer this to another guest on the last da
Dislikes:
It was unfortunate that we did not hit it off with the waiter on the first night. Also it was too hot to sleep. Jane and the other staff were all delightful and helpful. Poor complementary bath produc
