Beautiful views across the glimmering pool to the shimmering ocean - The Albatros still manages to dazzle with remarkable rooms, bountiful breakfasts, and a stunning setting. Welcoming hosts and helpful staff add the cherry to the top of the cake!

Beautiful B&B, neat, clean and excellent service. Good Breakfast and very close to the beach. We stayed in one of the executive suites and it was so wonderful. The owners are so warm and friendly and helpful staff as well. I recommend to all.

We experienced a warm welcome at our arrival. During our stay we were treated as family but with professionality. The breakfast and service in the mornings were of the best I have ever experienced. Will definitely be returning to the Albatros for our next stay in Margate.

We will easily recommend the Albatross to anyone we know travelling to the Margate area for either work or pleasure. Bessie & Andre are wonderfully welcoming hosts - and they have done a great job of thinking of the details that change a good venue to a great one. We were very happy to have been there !
