Travel Blogs from Ramsgate
When I was a 16-year-old brace face hostess, please try not to actively picture this, I was taken under the wing of a girl who quickly became my restaurant business 'Mr. Miyagi', but aside from that, she was intimidatingly drop-dead gorgeous. She was the blonde hair green eyed girl who would walk around without a stitch of makeup, getting great tips from the husbands and witch hexes from the fat, self-loathing wives. By every unwritten female code ...

... FAMILY DOCUMENTARY?!?" in unison and I realize this is why southerners marry their siblings. 10 minutes into the conversation, my mother, upon hearing my voice through her wall, enters the room whispering, "who is this boy you're Skyping? You can't talk like that it's why you're single". Womp. But I digress, let's talk about my mini me:
1. She's flaking out on picking me up from the airport to see Morrissey
I'm starting to think of renting an apartment at Schiphol because I'm back there again for my flight to the UK. My luggage consists of a case and a golf bag. Gone are the shorts, deet and sun cream, in are the jumpers, socks and garish golf trousers. I'm flying in a new route to Manston airport (near Ransgate) and the small plane is only 1/3 full. We land in a field in Kent where the runway ...
... scrubbed clean, the brew day was complete and we were off for the Ramsgate pub crawl with the gang. It was a mix of our old favorites and one new pub. The beer was flowing and tasting great. It was so great to be back in the old haunts again with the people we missed so much. Saturday we took the train from Ramsgate to Herne where we meet our friends James and Vicky and their daughter Lottie. We drove over to our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Harbour Hotel Ramsgate
Very enjoyably and easy going
Very pleasant, refreshingly quirky, hotel with a nice ambience and a great location. The rooms were very clean, the matresses was good quality - it's amazing how often the beds in otherwise OK hotels are truely awful to sleep on. The view over the harbour is lovely and the breakfast was excellent. The lounge with a real fire makes it feel very homely, along with all the art on the walls.
It's a really nice place to spend a weekend and Ramsgate is a beautiful town, not at all a fading beauty but rather one waking up after a long sleep to find it's back in fashion. It has fantastic architecture and is situated on a wonderful bit of coast with great walks and sandy beaches.
We were going to Ramsgate to visit friends and came across the website for the Royal Harbour Hotel. Their rather nutty attitude really attracted us and they seemed "our type of people".
My girlfriend and I stumbled upon the Royal Harbour Hotel while on a coastal tour. We randomly stopped at Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts as we came across them. This was our Best Night! The room was clean and views were spectacular! The bathroom was the cleanest I had used in the UK. It looked brand-new. The room had excellent decor and I felt as if I was in a harbor town summer home. The room was ornamented with seaside reading material, and the warmth of the furniture made me feel at home. We took advantage of the balcony chairs and watched the sunset. The staff was extremely polite, and always on hand for any assistance. The flat screen TV and wireless internet made the cottage retreat remain 21st century. My only regret is that we stayed only one night. With restaurants within walking distance and the ocean at our doorstep, we should have stayed longer. I felt the rest of my coastal tour was searching for a place like our night in Ramsgate. Our night at the Royal Harbour Hotel was truly the best.
This is a funny little hotel with a lot of character, and worth visiting on account of that if only! - Ramsgate is not a beautiful town nowadays although here and there you can find vestige of a once fashionable seaside resort, but it makes for a nice break, and the Royal Harbour hotel fits in rather nicely.
My partner and I have just returned from staying one night at this hotel. Having looked at reviews and the website I kind of knew what to expect. What I didnt expect was the cleanliness (perfectly so) and the friendliness of the staff. Our room (No 8) was very small (only one of us at a time could walk around the bed) but the veiw was breathtaking and the charm of the hotel took away any qualms we had about room size. We enjoyed a meal out in the town (atlantis restaurant to be recommended!!) and then returned to the honesty bar to gin and tonics and listening to a Elvis LP whilst playing trivial pursit. We felt so relaxed!
We expected a sea view, but we got a lovely balcony, with a gorgeous view of the harbour.
Stayed for 1 night, excellent room overlooking harbour, spotlessly clean, ample tea/coffee, beautiful towels, charming sitting and dining rooms, friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast - nothing was skimped on.
This hotel is excellent value and I would highly recommend it.
The perfect weekend break
My husband, 79yr old mother-in-law, have just come back from a night at this hotel. The hotel is quirky, relaxing and stylish. Loved the decor and we had rooms with harbour view which are well worth booking. The rooms were clean, the beds dressed beautifully. The ensuite facilities were a little lacking, mother-in-law's bathroom really needed decorating and there were no towel rails or full length mirror in her room, our room had a beautiful brand new white en suite, but sadly the "saniflow system was not to our liking. But overall the hotel was absolutely charming, well worth the visit. Great english breakfast too. Ramsgate is so lovely, we are moving here.
My partner and I chose this hotel because it appeared to be the best of a bunch of seriously lacking charming b&b's in Ramsgate, but we were concerned about the 2* rating. And I'm really glad we did and you would never know it was only a 2*. The hotel contained all the charm expected of a seaside town. We had the double on the top floor (elderly would find the stairs a problem but it was fine for us), and it was immaculate with fantastic views over the harbour. It had obviously only just been decorated in a lovely New England style and the bathroom was spotless. A couple of things gave the 2* away, lack of hanging space and shelving for toiletries, only one tiny mirror and no hairdryer. But the bed was really comfy and the room lovely. In the evening we sat in the lovely drawing room, which was empty apart from us, in front of a traditional inglenook fireplace, playing backgammon and listening to an LP on the old record player. Breakfast in the newly decorated dining room was freshly cooked to order and tasty, but slightly small portions. It was exactly what we wanted from a night away at the seaside. Highly recommended.
