At the beginning of August we really enjoyed our three night stay in the Seaview room with lovely views over the sea. The room was spotless with a very comfortable bed. Throughout our stay we experienced excellent, friendly service and really delicious breakfasts. The location was convenient for the local area with the beach only a little walk away. We... More

Once again we stayed at this bed and breakfast for two nights. Excellent value and very high quality both in terms of the house, bedroom and breakfast, served in the room. I look forward to the next visit.

Everything said in previous reviews about the kindness, hospitality and efficiency of this B&B is true. We based our choice on these reviews and certainly weren't disappointed. Breakfasts were lovely, the only way they could be improved was by insulated coffee pots, perhaps something Denise would consider when the present ones break. Rooms and bathrooms are luxurious, comparable to some... More

Wow, thank you for such a great review. I'm pleased you had such a good time. And thank you for your suggestion about the insulated coffee pots - must admit, I never thought of it, but I will certainly investigate. More

You are sure of a warm welcome, spotlessly clean accommodation, car parking space, a quiet room and a delicious breakfast. You could not ask for more. There is a good bus service to the centre of Whitstable or you can stroll to the harbour area along the seaside path.

Our host Denise was so wonderful, our room was a dream- with a wonderful sea view, our breakfast out of this world- delivered to our room personally. (I just had to take photos!) I really cannot rate this B&B highly enough. Thank you so much Denise. We will be back!!

We really enjoyed our lovely breakfast, perfectly presented and delivered to our room by trolley! We opted for cooked breakfasts and also had lovely fresh fruit, juice and croissants. When I mentioned I needed gluten free bread Denise even asked which... More

A high standard B&B and a most enjoyable stay. Very comfortable and clean in a good quiet location. Short walk via the beach to the harbour and high street, shops and restaurants. Excellent breakfast and hosts...couldn't ask for more!

Came for a few days over my birthday. Booking was nice and easy, my room overlooked a lovely garden and was clean and very comfortable with a great shower. The Continental breakfast was delivered on a trolley when I wanted it. Denise was a lovely host although I only bumped into her on the way in and out as I... More

We were delighted with the service we received. Denise was friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived which made us feel most welcome. We stayed for one night and had booked the small garden room due to last minute booking, all other rooms were fully booked. After staying here, I'm not surprised that the establishment was fully booked. We... More
