I wanted to sleep wth the curtains open to see the sea view. The bright green floodlights played on the front of the hotel all night, so the curtains stayed closed. The view in daylight is of a car park and a derelict crazy god course. The location is walkable from the station

Dear Guest, We are sad to hear that your stay is not great. I am sorry about the green floodlights , but this should come off between 1-2 in the morning, We will have to check the timer that has been set . It is very seldom that I have guests that is not happy with this , on the other hand they appreciated it as when they go back late at night , it serves as a light on the road . We will consider changing the light if more guests give us a feedback about having it inconvenient. Sorry about your breakfast sausage, the cook has been reprimanded and given a verbal warning . We cannot change the check- in time as we do not have a receptionist 24/7 , hence, everyone is given a set of key so they can come and go anytime after the check in . We are doing a lot of renovation and improvements and one of them is the plumbing . Unfortunately we cannot do anything about the car park, the crazy golf and train location. However, your review will give other future guests an idea of the hotel location . Your comments and review valuable to us. It is an opportunity for us to recover and make it better . If ever coming back to Margate and wanted to try for another stay with us , please phone us and we will give you a generous discount . Respectfully yours,

Hi John , As of Monday , Sept 03 . A Pest control have visited the room and non wildlife living found on bed or anywhere.We have new mattress and a regular pest control maintenance to avoid this problem . We know that you were disappointed that we didn't get to refund you. When you decided to check out within 15-20 min after checking in , you were asked by the lady what is the problem and if it can be rectify .. You said to her , twice "you are used to staying to a nicer room ". We cannot solve " nicer room " right on the spot because we know guests has different preference . She did mention to you about the hoovering as there was a problem when you arrived and she said she would come back to do it so you can settle and leave your luggage. And we apologize for that when you were brought to your room . She never said this to you "she stated that she hadn’t had time" None of the above issue was mentioned upon your departure, because these are all easy to fix. We contacted Booking.com to ask you to further explained so that we can reconsider the refund, however we didn't hear anything back until you've decided to write a review. We are a small running business , and we treat our guests with respect and care and fairness and we understand we cannot please everyone , but we do take on board every negative comment and work hard for betterment as that all we can do. Respectfully yours,
