“Perfect location,perfect rooms, perfect landlady :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010 via mobile

Stayed 3 nights in august and was slighly wary when we walked in the door but I've gotta admit we had a Perfect break.. The family room had a gorgeous view of the sea the room was large,clean and had everything you needed. There was no toilet in the room but we had been informed of this before we booked and it was only outside our door and was lovely and clean.. The breakfast was fantastic and kept us going for hours sharron was lovely and very aproachable and she even left us a little parting gift on our trays the morning we left :). Would not hesitate in booking again if needed and would definately reccomend to others.

myself and my partner stayed in 'the bear' last weekend of july, and cant fault it!
we were absolutely delighted with the eclectic decor, every day you notice something different, its fab........
the room was nice and clean, shower was fantasic, nice large tv, tea/coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge...what more could you want for a weekend away, with those little home comforts.....the bed was lovely and comfortable, we slept really well!!
sharon was and is very friendly and approachable, and assured us that if we needed anything just to let her know..
fantastic guest house, fantastic landlady,,,,,,,have already booked in for next year, and have recommended to friends also......

On meeting sharron she instantly reminded me of my old nan,a wise old dear who says it as it is and wont be walked over but with a heart of gold, Her rooms where more than up to the job in hand with fridges,kettles,microwaves,showers and most importantly 32 inch lcd tellys! Crisp clean bedding on a nice comfy mattress and an endless supply of mashing tackle. Sharrons cooking is second only to that of my mams,allthough if its steak night her old man tony is the man for the job...sorry sharron but his steak is better ha ha ha. All in all the bear geust house was the best move we made during a 2 month contract near margate and for any gang of contractors looking for digs,you wont find any better than sharron and tonys.

The Bear Hotel has a very unique style which reminded me of a doll house. Each floor had a different theme full of character. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The room had a big tv with a microwave and fridge. The owner of the Bear hotel is very friendly and very flexible around your needs. The beach is opposite the hotel. My gran from overseas really enjoyed the quirkness of the place.

Sharon and Tony run a very warm, friendly, guest house which is fantastic value for money. Lovely shower in your room, huge television and genius cooking. AND it's on the sea front and right next to the train station. What more could you want? All hotel's should be like this.
