Sands Hotel, Margate
Just the (gin &) tonic
Family mini break, all in one room - spacious, luxurious and spotless. Any issues we had were minor and dealt with swiftly, professionally and with a smile. Very patient and welcoming to kids (10 and 8). Super front desk advice on local activities and places to eat. Terrific bar.

First time in Margate- Loved Sands!
We stayed at Sands on a Saturday night, so expect noisy party goers late into the night/early morning. Absolutely all the staff were wonderful, reception, the cleaner but the 5 stars go to the BEST breakfast team in the restaurant ever! The girls really put the cherry on the cake for our stay. They were jolly, happy and fun and we had a wonderful breakfast overlooking the beautiful view of Margate beach on a Sunday morning. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only thing that could be worked on is the fridge in the cupboard, in fact the whole 'hot drinks' situation in the cupboard. The fridge in the cupboard was so hot, our water was very warm (in the fridge) and it threw out unnecessary heat.
