We were greeted by the very funny, friendly Dave and shown to our stunning room with ocean views. Nothing was too much, I asked to borrow an iron, ironing board and hair dryer, they were brought to our room within minutes. The generous breakfast was served by the lovely Hannah. A lovely, central gem of a B&B. Highly recommended!

If you get a front room, you have ocean views. And the Margate town centre is a short walk away, either by road, or more...

Great welcome, lovely room, in a great location if you're going out to the winter gardens or if you want to visit the Turner gallery. Very close to the old town which is full of nice little shops, and if you like your ale you won't be disappointed with Margate!
