Late decision to visit Margate resulted in a comfortable stay at The Malvern Guest House. Room was pleasant, the food appetizing and very friendly owners. Will stay again if we visit Margate in the future.

The room was quite small, but very clean and comfortable. Close enough to the town centre, but far enough not to be bothered by it. Television reception was quite poor. I would have liked a table type furnisher for my room, but more than good enough for an overnight stay. Helen the owner was extremely friendly and helpful

Room was very small and stuffy. Tiny bathroom. Bed comfortable. Skimpy towels. Very noisy plumbing. Leak from bathroom ceiling. Very tired decor, needs to be modernised. Breakfast lovely. Location excellent. Staff very nice. Was a last minute booking so adequate for one night. Would not have stayed any longer. Will not recommend it. Overall cramped and uncomfortable.

Thank you for reviewing our property. We are sorry that you felt the room to be stuffy. I'm sure this may of had something to do with the lovely weather we were having over the weekend. However if you had asked we would of provided you with a fan. We have found no evidence of a leak from up above... More

I stayed for two nights whilst working in the town, Helen was so helpful and nothing was too much bother. I will be recommending this to my employers to book again and again. Room was spacious and overlooking the sea.

Stayed here for a few days whilst visiting family. We stayed in a family room overlooking the oval and had beautiful views accross the ocean. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we would happily stay here again if we visit the area.

Needed to soak a badly infected ingrown toenail & asked Helen if she had an old bowl I could use. She very kindly lent me her Babyliss foot spa - was so grateful! Nothing too much trouble for her. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed in a seaview room that was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good and plenty of it. The evening meal (chicken tikka) was delicious. Short walk into town spoilt a bit by the litter.A friendly hotel with a good atmosphere.

Ideal room and breakfast. V. friendly and welcoming. Ignore poor reviews these seem to be from a few years ago. Absolutely no complaints. If it's good enough for Jake & Elwood, it's good enough for me.
