“A delightful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2011

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon for just one night and were warmly greeted by both of the owners. Our room was very clean (as is the rest of the house) and very well decorated. Breakfast the next morning was in a large conservatory over-looking a large garden which, one could image, would be absolutely delightful on a summer’s day. An excellent hearty full-english breaskfast was served with plenty of tea and toast topped-up with no problem at all. We would definitely recommend this lovely B & B for a stay in Whitstable, as it has off-road parking and is only 5-10 minutes walk from the busy high street.

From the exterior - as smart as a small hotel - you can see at once that Alliston House is very well-kept and run to a very high standard. We were welcomed at the door by one of the proprietors and led up to a lovely ensuite room whose decor was, again, more like a hotel than a B&B. Very elegant, even to the nice little table with chairs by the window. The bathroom was not quite as smart as the room, but everything worked fine and the proprietor made sure we had heating on and could not have been more helpful all round with suggestions as to transport/cabs/Whitstable restaurants. Breakfast overlooking the beautiful garden was lavish and delicious. We have recommended it to all our friends as by far the best place we know to stay in Whitstable.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Whitstable after we couldn't find accommodation in Brighton. My boyfriend found this B&B the day before we arrived. It was lovely!! The outside was well maintained and smart looking which made a great firs impression. We arrived early and our room was not ready but that was our fault because we arrived before checking out time at 11am, so we went fo a thoroughly nice day out in Whitstable. When we returned, our room was very homely and impeccably clean. There was tea and coffee aplenty and clean towels and shower gel. There was freeview with the tv. The best bit was the bed. It was amazingly comfortable and hard to get out of. In the morning, we had breakfast and the two proprietors could not have been more attentive and helpful. My boyfriend had the fried breakfast and said it was gorgeous. My museli was lovely too.
I find it hard to believe the B&B is shown as no 10 out of 12 b&bs in Whitstable. In my opinion, it should be ranked much higher. I would certainly recommend it to others and would definitely stay again. I noticed someone in another review called it a strange guest house... It isn't!! It is perfectly normal, very clean and comfortable and great value for money. It deserves the 4 stat rating for B&Bs. The two men who run it are very welcoming and helpful and introduced us to some fantastic seafood restuarants. Thank you!!

We were in Kent for a surprise 50th birthday party for an old friend and just needed a place to stay overnight. We wanted to give our custom to a local B&B rather than a hotel chain and the whole experience was excellent - the room was clean and comfortable, the proprietors could not have been more helpful and the breakfast was absolutely superb. Excellent value for money, and if we are ever in North Kent again we will certainly book this accommodation again.

A perfect weekend stay at the Alliston. Double room was a nice size, decorated in a cosy, homely way with a comfy bed and everything you might need in terms of towels, shower gel, tea and coffee tray and good TV.
Just a 10 minute walk away from all the bars, restaurants, shops and the beach.
Cooked English breakfast is absolutely superb and served in the delightful conservatory overlooking a beautiful country garden. The two owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Altogether a delightful break at a lovely guest house.
