What a wonderful weekend away, got a five star room, treated by the most friendly hosts to the most delicious breakfast, and relaxed like a king. It is close to all amenities, whilst being just the right distance from the sea. We'll be back whenever our batteries need a recharge!

Fabulous place to stay with stunning views and great, friendly service! Very convenient as it is situated close to Margate town and main beach. In the June/July sardine season it's great to have breakfast on the front veranda while watching whales pass by.
