Reviewed March 26, 2014

we stayed at the whitstable bay bed and breakfast for the weekend of our sons wedding. denise and barry were brilliant hosts. the rooms were perfect, just as previous guests had described.spotlessly clean and very comfortable. we had the full english breakfast on both mornings which was excellent. the walk into town was an easy 15 minutes which meant you didnt have to take the car and find a parking space. we would definitely stay there again. thank you denise and barry.

Room Tip: we had the seaview room and our daughter had the garden view. both good.

This is a lovely little bed and breakfast. We stayed in the sea-view room and it was perfect, with a large en-suite bathroom.

The breakfast was amazing: the inclusive continental is superb; or you can add a full English for a fiver which was nice, but this is unnecessary as the inclusive is great.

Whitstable town centre is about 1.5 miles away, you can walk either via the main road or the beach. Both are pleasant and seem safe even at night. We thought the walk was well worth not being right in town as it was very peaceful and there wasn't much traffic.

Overall, this is a great place in a great location. You won't regret booking the sea-view room here.

We booked the Whitstable for a last minute getaway and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly owner who gave us all the information needed and then left us to it. The room was spacious and well kept with a sofa, table and large en-suite shower room. The bed was really comfortable and the best thing of all was definitely the trolley of breakfast that arrived at the door in the morning. We had the full English one day and the smoked salmon and eggs the second. Both were very good and I think my only criticism is that perhaps there was too much smoked salmon but it all tasted great. It was also really quiet and only a 5 minute walk from the beach which offers a nice stroll into the centre of the town.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden room which was great.

We had a lovely weekend staying in Whistable. Denise was so friendly and welcoming. The rooms were immaculate and the full English breakfast was amazing. Presentation was great with little details added to give a homely touch. Would definitely be back again next year. Thank you for making our stay very memorable

Best B&B we've ever stayed in. The room was so spotless and beautiful and all the fittings so good quality we felt like we were Mr & Mrs John Lewis on their honeymoon!

They really spoilt us with an abundance of quality bedding, towels, toiletries, organic teas and coffees... and that was even before Denise (the host) appeared with a breath-taking breakfast, which even included specially wrapped and heated treats for my gluten intolerance...

If you can get yourself out of bed and past the amazing breakfast and shower, it's a 5 min walk to the beach, a pleasant 15min walk to town, very safe at night, and the buses to Canterbury stop just down the road. We were in the Seaview room, at the front of the house, and the road is very quiet and we had a fab night sleep even with the windows open.

The care and attention and pride and generosity that they put in their business shines through every detail and make this B&B a very special place.

Ah! And we haven't mentioned the 'magic mirror'.... what an amazing discovery that was!... :)

We couldn't recommend it more.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Whitstable Bay. Our room was extremely comfortable and very well presented. The bathroom was impressive with a fantastic shower. Breakfast was served to our room in the mornings and was delicious. It's just minutes from the beach and short walk from the centre. One is always slightly reticent about booking B&B's as a gay couple, but Denise and Barry greeted us both with big smiles and made us feel very welcome throughout our stay.

Stayed in the garden view room with my partner and our 2-month-old baby. Denise (the host) was very friendly and accommodating. The room was large and clean, loved the decor. The breakfast is served on a trolley in your room, and we loved it. There's parking slots available right in front of the house which helps as the b&b is approximately 20 mins stroll to the center. There's direct access to the sea right across the road down a smugglers' lane. Overall excellent experience, would definitely recommend.
