Positive Reviews

Ideal location for visiting the area.

If you’re visiting Margate on a sightseeing trip, then this guest house makes the ideal base for your stay. Everything of note is within walking distance, and you won’t be disappointed by the lovely views from the front of the guest house.

Lovely people do their best.

It’s not a five-star place but the owners really do go out of their way to try and offer you that five-star service that you get from a big hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and you will enjoy chatting with them about the local area.

A great start to the day.

The breakfast at this guest house is much better than many guests expected given that it is on the lower end of the scale with regards to room rates. There are plenty of options, and you’ll feel that it has all been prepared especially for you.

Negative Reviews

In need of a better makeover.

This hotel has been redecorated in recent years but could do with a bit more work than was done previously. It’s not very bad, but it is a bit shoddy here and there. Some cracks in the walls and a loose tile here and there.

A bit draughty.

The rooms can get a little cold at night because the windows are quite old. You might want to pack a good pair of pyjamas just in case it’s a windy night but other than that the room is fine.
