I have been staying at Margate Place for over 12 years now. I have always found the staff so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We like the comfort and space in the unit which has a small garden and I enjoy drinking my early morning tea outside while listening to the birds! We do self catering but I...

Enjoyed 2 marvellous nights at this lovely guest house; Melinda the guest house manager was so kind and professional it was hard to believe that we had not been friends for years! The guest house is conveniently located off the main Summerstrand road with secure parking and within walking distance of several very nice restaurants and beaches. We took breakfast...

What a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Close to the beach and to hustle and bustle of the business center, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Sucre parking and close to wonderful restaurants for lovey meals at night. Will definitely stay there again.

Spent a week here while attending a conference at The Boardwalk. Ideal location just a short walk away. The staff were very attentive and ready to help in any way. I can thoroughly recommend this Guest House.

I have stayed numerous times at Margate Place whilst on business the last 8 years, with my most recent stay during October. I've always had the most enjoyable experience, stayed in just about every room, all individually decorated with kitchens or kitchenette, comfortable beds and decorated with paintings by the owner, Cornell. (I have a lovely painting from her hanging...

This Guest House had incredibly friendly and unbelievably helpful staff and managers. Both Melinda and Cornell went out of their way to assist us in many different ways. We were in room 8, which is a fully self-contained unit in a very quiet corner of the house. Negotiating the various tricky locks to get into the unit is a little...

The staff at Margate place were very friendly, helpful and courteous. We found the familiy unit on par with our expectations. There were minor glitches - all fixed immediately after we reported it. Their breakfast is hearty and well prepared. Margate place is close to the beach and other anemnities. The security of the premises is good.

There has been a change in management since our last stay, and most definitely not for the better. From the moment we checked in with staff coming in to collect a "forgotten file" and no toilet paper anywhere in the unit (how is that even possible?), we felt something was amiss. I called ahead, giving the size of my vehicle...

It was very neat quiet and very private. i really loved my stay. Will book again. I recommended the b&b to my friends and family. i am definitely booking every second month just for the peace and quiet. I like the fact that you have your own entertainment at the self catering unit. thank you for a lovely experience.
