Perfect for a base in the Thanet area.

"I booked Grosvenor House for a long weekend with my family (Wife, mother, child of 2 years). The check in details were simple and we used a temporary parking bay at the front to off load. I moved my car to the nearby Dreamland carpark which was less than £15 for 24hours. The accommodation was perfect. ..."…"
