This quirky little guest house is comfortable. the surrounding area is less than desirable but this is in no way a reflection of the Malvern. Helen was friendly and very helpful. the room was neat and comforable all be it slightly dated ( Helen did say they where going to be renovating very soon).

i stayed here with my 9 year old daughter. The b&b was clean and well presented. It is a family run b&b and I thought the lady at check in was both friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, but we could hear our neighbours using their toilet which I was, in fairness uncomfortable with. steep stairs and...

We turn up to a canabis smell in the entrance when we was greated by a young man who took up to the top floor in a tatty room, a very small "flat screen " tv, and a toilet that has not been cleaned properly. We was there for a short amount of time as we was going out that...

Unbelievable I have no words for such utter nonsense. We would not be allowed to operate if there was any ounce of truth in this. We are a fully licensed and accredited guesthouse that has been trading for over 15 years. We have regular inspections by licencing and quality in tourism. As for our Blues Grill Bar & Restaurant being...

Whilst the twin room was small, it was clean and adequate. However, whenever the shower was used in another room The noise sounded as if the water was pouring down the walls of our bedroom, waking us up with a start throughout the night. Every step, toilet flush and movement from adjoining rooms can be heard. We had 2 sleepless...

Really clean and comfortable room. Lovely being near the sea and waking up hearing the seagulls. If staying here I would recommend staying in a room with a sea view to get the full seaside experience, I wish I had done.

We had a lovely weekend staying at the Malvern Guest House. Helen the owner was friendly and welcoming, our room was clean and comfortable and it was lovely being right by the sea.

I booked a last min room as hadn't planned to be in Margate. We arrived before check in as we were really tired and needed somewhere to sleep.

Room was nice with en-suite. Nice views across the beach. Bed was a little short for my fiance but he didn't mind. Our room was ready early so was allowed to check in early. Walking distance to wonderland (1.2 miles) or just £3.50 by cab. would stay here again
