Palm Court Hotel
Ranked #12 of 12 Hotels in Margate
Reviewed 4 October 2015

The room was up the top, no good if you can't climb stairs. It is what I would call a typical aged seaside place? Lovely sea views. (Room 6). Got cold in night. Requested a blanket and was done with no issues.
The inside was totally miss mash. Fairly aged. Very creaky floors. Very thin walls.
Landlady was very friendly and welcoming . Breakfast was included, fab for a small eater.
Ideal just for a base. Free parking on road. 15 minute walk into main town. Just don't expect too much. Need to be open minded. But agin the owner was very accommodating.

Room Tip: Room 6 had sea views, a small corner bath. 4 poster bed.

Oh dear! The lady who runs this place is sweet but I'm afraid all the other comments are not far off the mark. Down at heal, scruffy and not cheap. Maybe the local competition isn't great either, it certainly doesn't look it. (But surprisingly, Margate does appear to have some good places to eat!)

Well they say you get what you pay for! well not in this case!!! They should really pay you to stay here! This is not a hotel its a squat! Seriously it is tatty, dirty, old fashioned and needs a complete renovation. We stayed in this place with people that were waiting to be rehomed by the council so not somewhere I would ever stay again. If we could have checked out immediately and stayed somewhere else we would have, my Daughter said she would have prefered to sleep in the car!

Very disappointing stay, wouldn't stay here again. There were old clothes on the floor found in our room on arrival , bedding didn't smell clean.
Hotel in need of complete decoration and updating!
Breakfast not great either!

I was dismayed by the condition of the Palm court Hotel in Margate.
Firstly, there was no hotel parking visible or indicated.
Secondly, I did not get the room I booked which was Room 7 instead I got Room 3.
Thirdly, there was someone’s clothing (top, underpants and socks) left in one cupboard.
Fourthly, the TV didn’t work. Help was called and a temporary fix was achieved but this soon failed and no TV service was available for the rest of our stay.
Fifth, The electrical connection of the TV and lamp was dangerous inasmuch as the moving of the power bar caused a side lamp to illuminate and to go out when moved again. Similarly on the terrace was some loose cabling which should really have been secured.
Sixth, the shower tap was encrusted with limescale and hadn’t been cleaned for ages.
Seventh, Window seal round the bay window was blown and the paintwork of the room in general was of a very low standard.
Eighth, the carpet hadn’t been cleaned for a while and the stains added to the general dinginess of the room.

Room Tip: There isn't one - avoid this place.
