About the hotel

Smiths Court – set on the clifftop to the east of Margate – is privately owned and family run and, is Margate's only three star premier hotel. This ‘elegant Victorian’ has all the modern conveniences expected by the discerning traveller, but retains a quintessentially English charm. Offering a quiet attentive service to business and leisure guests, It’s an ideal retreat after a long day exploring Kent’s history, our amazing blue flag beaches, or indeed after a busy day at the office! 43 standard and executive rooms many with sea views or balconies some enjoying superb sea views and spectacular ‘Turner’ sunsets.

All rooms are en suite with direct dial telephones, tea and coffee making facilities and hospitality tray. In-room safes have recently been added to all rooms. Disabled facilities include a fully equipped suite and lift access to most rooms. Grounds include a sheltered sun patio and private car parking. The Orangery restaurant, open daily for lunch and dinner, menus are entirely rewritten for each season – with minor tweaks in between to take account of good or poor growing conditions at our major vegetable suppliers, Nash Farm. Most of our meat is from Monks Hill farm, and our fish from the Margate boat or Romney Marsh fisheries. Our bread is baked by Giovanni, and our eggs laid by chickens too numerous to name, living at Woodlands Farm! Fruit now comes from Sunshine growers in Stodmarsh, from which we make our own Jams and preserves – and almost everything else!

Amazing views, horrible accommodation

The view was incredible and the location is good and Our bed was comfortable.

However, the room was in major need of updating it looked nothing like the pictures on the website. The walls were scuffed, there were spilt tea stains on the radiator, the wardrobe was full of dust, the carpets had thick dust all around the edges. There was a distinct lack of attention to detail. The bathroom was tiny and smelt. I asked the staff to take a look but no one got back to me about it and it still smelt when we returned so I presume no one did anything about it. In the morning the water pressure was terrible and the water got hotter and colder constantly. Although Margate is known for its rustic charm this was like staying in bad student accommodation twenty years ago.
