“Good with reservations”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

A perfect location for exploring Deal and the surrounding area, and pet-friendly an added bonus. Car parking was not a problem - the car park at the end of Union Road charges £0.70 an hour between 9 and 5 and you can pre-pay for the following morning if you plan to have a late start.
The garden was south-facing and private, though very overgrown for the first 5 days of our stay. A gardener called at 11:30 on the Friday to let himself into the house (he had a key) as there is no other access to the garden when the gate is locked. We happened to still be in, and it would have been a courtesy to have been informed by the managing agents that someone was going to let themselves in.
The kitchen is in the basement, and almost everything (cutlery, crockery, pans, glasses) is in the open rather than stored in kitchen units, which was a negative particularly as pets are allowed in this property. The kitchen itself is not well-designed in terms of its layout and there is very little work surface.
The bathroom and toilet are also in the basement, just off the kitchen, so there's a very long way to go if you need to pay a visit in the middle of the night - 2 flights of quite steep stairs, the top one having no handrail which seemed poor from a safety perspective.
The lounge and dining areas on the ground floor were comfortable, as also were the bedrooms and beds. Overall we were pleased with the accommodation but there were negative features, particularly the access to the house without notice while we were staying there which we have not experienced anywhere previously.

Thank you so much for writing the review. It is so helpful to get constructive feedback and I have passed on your comments to the owner.

I am so sorry about the gardener came without you being notified. That shouldn't have happened at all.

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Deal.

“Pet-friendly house in a very good location”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A very nice house in a great location, on a quiet street but only minutes from the center of town. Several good pubs and restaurants nearby, as well as a supermarket. The house itself had everything we needed, including a lovely garden. We had our dog with us, and he seemed to like the garden especially.

We absolutely loved our stay at Puffin Cottage! It is quaint but fully equipped and ever so charming. Deal is a gorgeous place. We will be back.

“Cosy, cute and peaceful- this was a perfect seaside getaway”

The people at Keepers cottages were helpful and kind throughout the booking and checking in process. They were flexible when it came to picking up keys and even left us some wine and a cake which was very nice on a Friday evening :-)

The cottage itself is lovely. Perfectly located near to the main high street and the sea and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was so well equipped that we ended up staying in and cooking instead of going to one of the recommended restaurants.
Deal is a pretty, peaceful town. It was easy to fill a weekend wandering around and exploring. I think for longer than a weekend you may have to venture further afield but there seemed like a lot of things all round.

“Gorgeous retro/ vintage cottage”

We were staying at puffin cottage at the end of April 2015, picked up the Keys with ease and even though the cottage says no parking there was plenty of street parking and car parks close by that did cost but not very expensive and it was no issue for us or detracted from the cottage or our stay at all!

The cottage was really very lovey, bright, airy and well set out with lovely quirky 60 style and lots of great books to read! Good comfortable rooms and well equipped too. It was extremely clean including all the pans and crockery etc and we made use of the cooker etc which was all in good working condition. The garden was also lovely and was secure and enclosed so good for dogs or small children too. We had a really lovely week there.

Would stay again, Deal is also lovey and great for traveling round to other coastal areas too!
