We went for two night just for a little getaway from London. We wanted to spend some quality time together as a couple. This place was ideal. It's beautiful. It is as beautiful as the pictures, so u will not be disappointed. Its a bit like staying in someones house, but better. We stayed in the first floor room. I didn't see the others. I actually didn't see the other guests either! The room is gorgeous. Simple but really beautifully done. Huge and with huge windows which look into the green square. It's private too so no worries. The bed is so big and comfortable and beautiful. We spent most time just laying around. The bathroom is huge and gorgeous. Beautiful shower with great pressure and amazing roll top bath. We loved it. It's just the perfect place for a romantic few day hideaway. The breakfast is incredible. The lovely couple that owns it bring it to your room and sets it up on the table by th window in your room. The choices are amazing and all was super super good and quality. You choose what time to eat so it's really all on whatever schedule you want to be on. The only negative was that you hear people walking up the stairs really well and hear footsteps from the room above. But to be honest, we r super sensitive to that and it didn't bother us. We slept really well. I guess the top room won't have that problem but it didn't look as beautiful to us in pictures so not sure. Depends I guess. We wanted to big windows and high ceilings.
Margate was cute. The nice part is the old town and it's tiny so not sure what else to do there for more than a weekend. Little independent cute shops We exhausted it in one afternoon. But we went there to just relax in the gorgeous room so it was fine. Dinner options were really good. I recommend bebeached and the indian place, I don't remember the name.
We will probably go back next time we need a break like that! It was so easy to get to and so relaxing!
